Today’s pedal line is from Adam Parker. 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 email@example.com. Every Friday I’ll showcase a pedal line submission. Make sure you include any links to your band or music page.
I wanted to submit my pedal line to you before the year ended, because it’s a collection that started just under 12 months ago in January. Everything shown in the picture attached has been acquired since then. I sold some unused gear of mine, and the simple want for a nice tremolo pedal quickly turned into a mild obsession of the ever growing world of boutique guitar effects and their builders.
My current group, Honest Engine, is a recording only project- so I keep my pedals un-mounted and unwired which I feel encourages me to constantly experiment with various combinations and order. Also, while recording I typically only run my signal just through the pedals that I am using for that particular part. I feel that this practice helps keep down excess noise.
Pedals listed by builder/brand:
The Tremolessence – Simply put, one of (if not the) best sounding most revered tremolo pedals available today.
Sea Machine – An extremely non-traditional sounding and operating chorus pedal. It’s an analog/digital hybrid (so they say), and it very easily and quickly turns from a slight chorus to extreme modulation of tone. Basically using anything more than the Depth and Rate knobs on this pedal will take your tone into territory outside of a traditional chorus effect. That being said, it’s probably not a great substitute for a simple analog chorus, it’s definitely best when used for effects that other chorus pedals cannot achieve. [info]
