Today’s pedal line is from Gareth Orr. 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.
The pedals are as follows.
Zvex Fuzz probe
Big Muff standard reissue ( I rehoused and modded with a tone bypass switch)
Blessed by distortion Fuzz/Boost (I use the Fuzz setting)
MXR 6 band EQ
MXR Phase 90
Electro-Harmonix Memory boy
Electro-Harmonix Frequency analyzer
Electro-Harmonix LPB Boost
TC Electronics tuner
An A/B box with volume for 1 input
The grey 3 switch unit is, 1 footswitch (right) and 2 loops (middle and left).
One loop is modded with a feedback loop with amount dial
The signal flow goes as this. Guitar into Fuzz Probe, which goes into A/B box. The other input (with volume control has my Theremin.
A/B box into tuner, which runs into the grey switching unit.
the first loop is for my drive chain which is Big Muff into Blessed By, into Eq. This gives me many tonal options for different drives.
My modulation loop runs like this.
First Bassballs, into Frequency Analyzer, into Phase 90, into Memory Boy and into LPB.
Now with my feedback mod I can play just pedals and put my guitar down. I use the booster to boost my signal to step up the drive,
but also for the feedback loop (which is just like a total sonic annihilation pedal) Trying to describe what this does is hard (it works rather randomly)
So I might be best sending a video of me using it and maybe our song I use it in.
Let me know if you want a video or tune to demo the feedback.
