“I REMEMBER A GIG IN SEATTLE A FEW YEARS AGO WHEN
five minutes to show time our stage tech told me that my Vox amp had blown a
power tube and asked where I keep my spare tubes,” recalls Tegan and Sara sideman
Ted Gowans. “I learned my lesson the hard way
that night about keeping a spare of everything!
Luckily, the club we were playing had an old Fender
Twin in the back for emergency use, so five minutes
later I went on stage with an amp I hadn’t soundchecked.
One thing that helped was I use a Fulltone
Fulldrive 2, which is very dynamic and transparent and it sounds great with most
amps. It makes playing with a backline amp much simpler and
worry free and it allows me to focus on playing the show
rather than messing with the amp knobs. The bright side of
this story is that the Fender sounded so good, I forgot all
about my near disaster and had a great show.”
