  1. Effects Pedals, Strings and more
    I don’t mind fuzz pedals, but I don’t use them often. I’ve demoed them, used them here and there, but frequently had to do some EQ adjustments or add some type of treble booster, etc., to really get the notes to sound more defined and harmonically rich. Hagerman Amps’ DRIVE is a different and...
  2. Amps and Cabs
    Hagerman designed a low watt amplifier for the primary purpose of a practice amp, in order to avoid using and burning up a larger stage amp at home. I can expand on that premise to suggest that many times bands leave gear in a particular location, to prevent having to haul amps, cabs, etc., back...

    Hagerman is a solid pedal-builder/engineer, and often producing unique voicings when compared to its rivals. Its METAL pedal is no exception, although not a ‘modern’ hi-gain type pedal in the modern sense – rather, METAL is described as a distortion/fuzz, and that aspect comes through loud and...

    The VALVE is a ‘keep on’ pedal, and Jim Hagerman classifies it as a boost (upward of 20dB), but it is a tone charmer that has overdrive properties. At $129 USD, the VALVE is one of the best bangs for the buck, as it fattens up a Strat, makes humbuckers growl, and simply adds more life and...

    This is no ordinary boost, and built in the USA by a sound engineer, Jim Hagerman. And as I tweaked the knobs I knew there was something unique about this boost pedal. Depending on where you place the Ungain knob (relative to working with a clean vs. dirty amp, or single coils vs. humbuckers)...

    I was impressed with the Hagerman Tube Overdrive, and so how good are his Silicon pedals? Without missing a beat, this non-guitar-playing engineering certainly knows sound and quality. I’ll be reviewing the Hagerman Boost at a later time, whereas this review is focused on his Phase, which sounds...

    👍 The term ‘organic’ may be overused in the music industry, and perhaps a bit of a peculiar nomenclature to describe circuits and electronics, but its applicable nonetheless when comparing sounds that tend to be full-bodied and rich, as opposed to those sounding more sterile or flat. It also...
