I came across this sweet recent photo of Dominic Aitchison (bass player of Mogwai) playing a Travis Bean bassÂ (photo by Gavin Kelly1). I thought it was pretty wicked and got me thinking it would be cool to showcase his board. But as it seems with all bass players, getting that information is pretty hard.
I came across a still that someone took of the PSL TV show. I used stills from that to showcase for Stuart Braithwaite and John Cummings‘ pedal board as well in the past. That piece of footage has great information on Mogwai’s gear.
As I mentioned, there wasn’t too much available as far as gear lists or discussions. I did find one post on talkbass.com, and I’m using that info for this post. Below is a shot of Dominic’s pedal board:
From right to left:
Boss TU-2 Tuner
Boss ODB-3 Bass Overdrive
Boss DD-7 Digital Delay
SansAmp Bass Driver
Electro-Harmonix Bass Micro Synthesizer
Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2+
I had some doubt on the EHX Bass Micro Synth due to the size of the enclosure in the photo, but I think it’s how the photo is skewed. There is one unidentified pedal. It almost looks like some type of modified Boss pedal. Not sure. If anyone can shed some light, please comment below!

Hi, I came across this as I’m a mogwai fan – I know nothin about effects pedals but I do know that Dom is on twitter @dominic138 and seems a lovely bloke so you could ask directly? 🙂Reply

I believe the box to the left of his tuner is a DI for his unaffected tone.Reply
