Loopocalypse Day 9 (of 17): “Pumped Up Kicks”

Best pop song ever about a school shooting (and yes, that includes “I Don’t Like Mondays.”)

The guitar is my latest DIY experiment: A bunch of random Strat parts with magnificent Lollar Firebird pickups. I’ve built my Cult overdrive circuit into the guitar, and you hear it during the solo (though it doesn’t sound quite the same as it does through an analog amp). I recently made a side-by-side comparison video of these Firebirds and Lollar mini-humbuckers — two pickups that look quite similar, but which sound very different.

Here’s an explanation of my live looping rig.
