Today’s pedal line is from Jimmy Davis. 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.
My name is Jimmy Davis. I’m 54 and having a ball playing in the greatest band of my life, UNCORKED! We are a six piece group from CT ranging in age from mid twenties to fifty somethings. Our drummer and my guitar playing partner are father and son and the origin of our band. We play music from the fifties to the present with five singers, your usual two guitars, bass and drums plus trumpet and sax.
My pedal line is probably not too exotic. I think it’s in a pretty stable order right now so this is a great time to try out the Effects Bay Pedal Labels. My line goes MXR Dyna Comp Compressor, Electro Harmonix LPB-1 clean boost, Fulltone OCD for rhythm crunch, Boss OS-2 for solos. The Boss DD-6 delay I use very sparingly but to great glee for backwards solos in just two songs per show. Next is my original Arion Chorus from probably 1984. Boss BF-2 Flanger (note no lines on the pedal labels yet – still trying to find a sound I like from this otherwise well known pedal.) Boss FRV-1 Fender ’63 Reverb because my brand new ZT Lunchbox amp has no reverb and I can’t live without reverb. Finally the TC Electronic Polytune, which lets you tune all six strings in one strum, how cool is that? The little pink duct tape thing is a Tums case that holds picks because I am always looking for picks. Car seats, clothes washer. You know. The board is a Gator and travels in its own spiffy zipper thingie (which is the main reason for using the pedal labels!)
