Today’s pedal line is from Julian Estrada. 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.
Hi, my name is Julian, i’m a semi-professional musician from Buenos Aires – Argentina. I play some sort of 70’s infused grungy hard rock. I’ve followed your blog for several months now and it’s one of my main resources for pedal info. Attached to this e mail you may find a picture of my current board of effects, i was victim of a robbery about 4 months ago so this pedal board it’s like the new version of the sound i’m looking for. It’s a very “spartan” setup, it covers the basics with both “pricey” and cheap pedals. I´ll explain the line, it goes like this:
Fender Jazzmaster Blacktop HS or Epiphone G-400 with Seymour Duncan SH1 (59) on the bridge position >
– Dunlop CAE Mc404 Wah: (By far the best wah pedal i’ve ever heard, the most versatile one at least)
– Buffalo Audio 66 Overdrive : (Manufactured by a reknown local boutique pedal brand, it´s a very harsh nasal overdrive in the fashion of vintage british amps)
– Carl Martin DC Drive: (Awesome pedal for the price, sounds really good and in the “fat mode” it´s almost a mid gain distortion, kudos for the booster as well)
– Joyo Ultimate Octave: (The cheapest “octavia” pedal around, sounds pretty good for the price and gets the job done)
– Danelectro Cool Cat Vibe: (Another cheap pedal with great sound but two annoying but fixable issues, very soon i’ll be replacing this unit for a Pickle Vibe probably)
– MXR Carbon Copy: What’s left there to say about this beautiful piece of machinery?
All this goes straight into my Peavey Valveking 212 Combo
That´s about it, check my band’s bandcamp page where you can download our first EP for free.
