HANK MARVIN: VOL­UME PEDAL SWELLS

cd track 15

Guitar Techniques - - INSTRUMENTALS -

Al­though not renowned for his use of the vol­ume pedal, Hank has used them oc­ca­sion­ally to cre­ate un­can­nily vo­cal-like melodic de­liv­ery. In this ex­am­ple the swells into the notes are com­bined with the whammy bar vi­brato to cre­ate an ex­tremely ex­pres­sive de­liv­ery. For the fa­mous clas­si­cal melody that this ex­am­ple is loosely based on, Hank used a Mor­ley VBO pedal on the orig­i­nal record­ing. This was the big chrome first se­ries of Mor­ley ped­als. Later he used a slim­line VBO Mor­ley and then a Boss FV300 al­though he ap­par­ently didn’t like the long travel on this pedal as much as the Mor­ley.
