David Barber of Barber Electronics (Part 1) – The Interviews Season 1

In this episode, we sit down with David Barber of Barber Electronics. The Barber Electronics Direct Drive is the Beard’s favorite overdrive pedal of all time. We were lucky enough to have David Barber join us in our “studio” for an evening and talk gear. This video is part 1 of that evening and focuses on the line of pedals offered by Barber Electronics. Make sure to subscribe for part 2, pedal demos from this episode, and maybe more.

Thanks for spending some time with us and please subscribe for future episodes.

We now have t-shirts!
