Reverb.com's Michael Lux and Dan Orkin are the co-producers of The Pedal Movie, Reverb's first feature-length documentary on the history of pedals, the current pedal movement and the artists who are pushing the boundaries of music with their stompboxes today. It's an inspiring, epic film - around two and a half hours long! - filled with the many, diverse faces that make up today's pedal industry. There's also a ton of guitar history, too.
During this week's chat, we talk about the making of the movie, the countless hours of interview footage they recorded, the pedal movement today (and where it's headed), and a lot more.
