Pladask Elektrisk Kniv

All
Pladask Elektrisk is a great company out of Bergen, Norway.  A while back, I gave away a Pladask Elektrisk Gjengangar gated delay pedal. That pedal I was SO blown away, I actually bought one the day I reviewed it (since I was giving the reviewed pedal away). When it comes to pedal, I like when they have a unique characteristics that can inspire creativity. Pladask Elektrisk is all about that. When they contacted me to see if I was interested in the Kniv, I was very excited.   Opening the box, I had no idea what the Kniv was all about. Discovering pedals in this way can be super fun.

All
Hey Meet my Kiesel Vader! She’s a V7 with Hipshot/Kiesel vibrato. One of the coolest things about Kiesel is that every guitar is essentially a custom instrument: there’s an almost overwhelming range of options from which to spec out your dream guitar. Funnily enough, there’s a pretty similar guitar to mine on the V7 gallery, but that’s pretty much coincidence: whoever ordered that guitar just happened to have similar tastes to me. There are some differences too though, and as Homer’s assistant Karl said on The Simpsons, “My reasons … are my own.” Let’s break down what I selected and why. So. Every element of this guitar was selected for a particular reason related to synesthesia. I’ve written about this before, including this article for Guitar World. Essentially synesthesia is…
