Mike Orlando Rocktron Signature Wah Pedal

Mike teamed up with Rocktron and  produced a wah pedal like no other. Mike’s expressive use of the wah effect required a pedal that not only could take the usage, but has a very musical tone. Working with Mike, Rocktron developed three custom voiced settings. Mike mainly uses the CLASSIC setting which is a more “vintage” wah effect. The NORMAL setting provides a more “current” frequency sweep. The BASS setting is ideal for Bass Wah and 7-string guitars, but...

-Review segments:

(Steve Vai, Guitar Player Magazine’s 2008 Superstar of
the Year Event)

-Your gonna give your guitar a nervous breakdown,lol..I
almost took my lip and wrapped it around my head..
Absolutely Amazing!”

(Joe Satriani, Guitar Player Magazine’s 2008 Superstar
of the Year Event)

 -Wow..that energy..that’s so over the top that I thought
you were gonna explode at the end! That was just crazy..
You should have seen us up here,the energy coming off
your guitar was incredible!”

(Matthew Hoffman-Hard Rock Haven)

– After watching G-3 live in Japan all last week, then
reviewing this record this week, one thing became
abundantly clear. This man should be the next third
guitarist standing with Satriani and Vai!

(Elliot Easton, Guitar Player Magazine’s 2008 Superstar
of the Year Event)

-I like you Mike..You get up there an plant your feet and
it’s like, I’m Mike from NY, f**k you!I love that about
you! You so entertained me! Your amazing, I dont know
what to say!”

(Jeffrey Shawn Fajans-GuitarPlayerZen)

– That’s it. I quit guitar. There is just no way possible I
can catch up to the technical ability of Mike Orlando in
this lifetime. Good thing I believe in GuitarPlayerZen
reincarnation and will be sure to start practicing 8 hours
a day from when I turn 5 and will beg my new father to
beat me if I get off the routine..
…Just imagine if Steve Vai, Malmsteen, Steve Morse,
and Petrucci all had their DNA extracted and put into a
test tube to grow a super guitar baby. In fact, I think that
is what actually happened. Mike Orlando is the super
guitar baby of Steve Vai, Steve Morse, John Petrucci,
and Yngwie Malmsteen. Check out his awesome
composition, Game Over.

(Ron Thal-Bumblefoot-Guns & Roses)

-“Mike’s an amazing player and writer, and his album
rules. I’m not just saying that because we went to High
School together. Or because I’m on the CD. Mike’s an
amazing player and writer, and his album rules. Get it.”

(Nick J. Hinton-Virtuosa Magazine-UK)

– Michael has made the most extreme guitar album
since Jason Becker’s Perpetual Burn….. …..his death
defying runs and techniques take his compositions into
the next universe…. …..should be the next guest on the
next G3 tour.

(Joe Stump)

-To say that Mike`s playing is intense is an
understatement. He manages to showcase his
monstrous technique, great command and killer chops in
the context of cool tunes and does it all with a really
nice sense of musicality . – Joe Stump

(Johnny Lokke-Live 4 metal)

-He has the flash and speed of Yngwie Malmsteen,the
quirkiness of Steve Vai and the clean, hear-every-note-
played talent of Joe Satriani. Throw it all together and
you get some truly amazing guitarwork that will take
your breath away! …..Orlando not only plays like a
genius, He is a wonderful composer as well.

(Richard Niczyperowicz-Shredaholic.com)

– This album is pretty darn amazing both technically and
musically blending styles together to create a monster of
a rock shred album. ……..Phenomenal speed…bucket
loads of melody…great emotional ballads…amazing
harmonies & melodies.

(Francios Xavier Fillon-Guitars-Attitude.com)

-Mike Orlando plays with the speed of lightning!…..
smooth tracks with great feeling! He is a great discovery!

(Emiliano Carli-Chitarristi.com and Axe Magazine-Italy)

-this is one of those discs that has to be played over
and over again,only to astound everytime…
-Orlando’s greatness lies in his ability to stupify….
-the soul of a bluesman and that of a shredder co-exist
perfectly…

(CDK.CL review segments)

Tracks like Wheels in motion,Sonic Stomp,Changes and
Slam leaves you with your mouth wide opened…Game
Over is another remarkable song…
-Tremendous impossible amount of licks at the speed of
light…

Al Hay-(Hardrockhouse.com):

-Mike fires pentatonic licks like bullets…Blues based
shredding at it’s most extreme and full of humor…
-You can almost smell the smoke as his fret board
catches fire..
-Guitar solos which are as relentless as waves crashing
on the shore..
-Blues style solo which Mike takes into the outer
reaches of planet guitar..
-Mike would be perfect on one of Joe Satriani’s G3
tours..
-Stand on the beach look out to sea and Mikes playing
will take you wherever you want to go..

(Andy Craven-Virtuosity One)

-Mike has incredible runs and his backing tracks are of
high standard…. ……Fans of high-octane lead work that
see tremendous right hand picking will find a lot to enjoy
here!

(Mr. Fusilli-Wall Street Journal)

-The last contestant, Mike Orlando of Staten Island, N.
Y., is a shredding machine, going faster and faster, the
notes coming at a pace impossible to comprehend,
building and building toward detonation. “They do make
decaf,” Mr. Satriani jokes, adding that the only
appropriate topper to the performance would have been
if Mr. Orlando’s head had exploded. Mr. Vai says,
“You’re going to give your guitar a nervous breakdown.”
