Todayâ€™s pedal line is from Lee Chavez. If you have a pedal line (doesnâ€™t have to be in a board) for your rig, please email me a photo, bio, description of pedals and routing to email@example.com. Every Friday Iâ€™ll showcase a pedal line submission. Make sure you include any links to your band or music page.
Hey there, my name is Lee Chavez, and I’m the lead guitarist in a band that is with out a name, and is still forming, in Dallas Texas.
As for my pedal board, I don’t have much going on, and only takes under five minutes to set up. (I’m buying new pedals now, and am building a bigger board.)
From my guitar, I go right into my Dunlop Original Crybaby. I love that baby, and snagged it at GC for $39.99 used at GC! Then I go into my ever trusty Boss TU-2. I’m really wanting to sell or trade it for the new Boss TU-3. But for now, this thing keeps me sane, and my guitars in tune. I then go into my Boss SD-1, that I use to level out the tone, add a touch more of gain, or what else, to go into OVERDRIVE! That then goes to my amp (Crate GLX1200 full stack).
For those two lovely pedals to the bottom left, are Electro Harmonix Holy Stain, and Boss DD-3. Both reside in the FX loop of my Crate head, running like so
FX Send —> Delay —> Holy Stain —> FX Return
A lot of people hate the holy stain, saying it sucks the tone from your rig, and the effects are useless. This thing has improved my tone, 100%, and I love every effect! I even found out how to use the “Pitch Shifter” as a harmonizer! They work as a beautiful combination, and I only use so little Reverb. And with the delay’s level knob at 12 o’clock, it makes my sound so huge, and wide!
That’s my pedal board for now, and hope you like it. It’s really not much at the moment, but sounds quite the opposite!
