With a career spanning over 25 years and covering genres such as hip hop (Dr. Octagon, Deltron 3030), heavy metal (Racer X), progressive hard rock (The Mars Volta, Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group, ZAVALAZ), rock (Vato Negro, B’z) and alternative (Big Sir), Alderete brings a wealth of knowledge his clinics for fans and musicians of all ages.
Because pedals and effects are used by various instrumentalists- guitarists, vocalists, keyboard players, bassists- the clinic is for any musician wanting to explore the manipulation of their sound using these tools.
“I’ve been playing with pedals since the early ’90s and was always looking for something to make my bass sound like an 808, synthesizer or an unknown instrument. Through constantly seeking out new and vintage pedals, trying out different techniques- basically trial and error- I’ve learned how to get the sounds I want and I’d like to help kids and other musicians to find their sound, too. My sound is constantly evolving, and that’s where the fun is- it’s never ending- and I’d love for aspiring musicians to experience that as well.”
