Today’s pedal line is from Devin Ozel. If you have a pedal line (doesn’t have to be in a board) for your rig, please email me a photo, bio, description of pedals and routing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Every Friday I’ll showcase a pedal line submission. Make sure you include any links to your band or music page.
I’m Devin and I play bass in Le Panique. I wanted to make my bass sound like a guitar, and thus I use a Rickenbacker 4001, a vintage Marshall half-stack, an SWR Redhead, and the following pedals:
Planet Waves Chromatic Tuner
Boss Bass Chorus CEB3
Boss Bass Equalizer GEB7 – I use this equalizer to take out the low frequencies, so that I do not blow out the Marshall half-stack.
Boss Mega Distortion MD2 – Good ol’ distortion makes the bass sound more like a guitar than anything.
Death by Audio Fuzz War – I have tried out many fuzz pedals, and this one generates the best tone and is so very loud.
Death By Audio Total Sonic Annihilation – I use this pedal with MD2 to generate feedback and using the volume knob on my bass, I can generate weird effects. You can hear what this pedal can do in the beginning of our song, “Santa Clara”.
I plan to replace the volume pedal with a booster, so if you have any suggestions, I would love to know. Thanks!
