I came across this video today. It was quite cool on many different levels. I’ve always been interested and intrigued by Nels Cline, so this was a cool view into his style. Looks like he stopped by the ZVex shop in Minnesota to talk about the ZVex Box of Metal distortion pedal. The video was submitted by russianmusicgear.
I definitely thought it was odd that Nels would be into this pedal (judging the artist and the pedal by the cover), but after hearing his reasoning.. it made good sense. I think it’s important to not stereotype pedals to the genre of music you’re in, there could always be hidden/useful traits that can be greatly applied in your style of music.
