Yesterday I saw a video of Sigur Ros playing “Kveikur” on Late Night w/Jimmy Fallon.Â I’ve always been a fan of the band. I’ve always appreciated and admired their ability to craft such thick sonic textures. JÃ³nsi Birgisson is the lead singer and is often seen using a cello bow with his guitars. I thought it would be interesting to do some research on what he’s using for pedals. Unfortunately, I need your help. Some of the items were unidentifiable.
First here is the video:
Based on the opening scene (shot from above), I was able to identify a couple of pedals
There are 2 pedals that I’m not able to identify between the Loop Station and Volume Pedal. The white-ish pedal could be a EHX Freeze (but he seems to prefer a OD in this postion), the other one is too hard to see. Doing some research, I was able to find some other (older) pedal board shots. In the post he used a Ibanez TS9 Tube Screamer
Here is a rough image, but could possibly be the unidentifiable pedal in the first image (sorry that I don’t have a bigger shot of this)
If you have any photos showing what that pedal, or just know what it is, please let me know or comment below!
