Today’s pedal line is from Abram Denzlinger. 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.
I’m a guitarist in the Omaha Rock and Soul band Voodoo Method. We play out fairly often and do some minor traveling to gigs, so this was pieced together over the last few years with simplicity in mind. The Pedaltrain PT-2 HC and Voodoo Labs PP2+ make set up/tear down/transport easier. I switch between a Strat and Les Paul, and run everything straight into a Rivera Quiana 212.
Analogman modded Boss GE-7 – for quick adjustments in tone/volume when switching guitars. Makes the changes a little less drastic, and keeps the sound guys happy.
MXR Custom Comp – replaced a Keeley 2-knob. The Custom Comp adds a little shimmer along with compression. It’s a permanent part of my clean tone.
Fulltone Clyde Standard – replaced a Vox V-847. I have the trim pot set halfway between Mike’s favorite setting and the stock 60’s Vox setting. It makes for a nice all around (rhythm/lead) wah setting.
Peterson Strobo Stomp 2 – the only tuner I’ve found that I can see clearly in ANY lighting condition.
Fulltone OCD – set for light/medium OD.
Keeley modded Voodoo Labs Sparkle Drive – set for solo boosts.
Line 6 M5 – for tremolo and some weirder stuff like octaves, synth, etc. I’ve never really cared for the Line 6 delays. LOTS of people love ’em, but I usually don’t use them. I’ve gone back and forth putting the M5 in the effects loop, and it does make a significant difference in how the M5 performs. The drawback is in the clean tone: the extra 40 feet of cable in the effects loop rolls off some high end. For as little as I use the M5, I prefer to sacrifice its performance a little and run it in front of the amp with everything else. This keeps my clean tone how I like it, and the M5 still does ok.
T Rex Replica – incredible tap-tempo delay. Always on the brown setting. This replaced an MXR Carbon Copy – great delay, but the repeats get really dark on longer delay times. Plus I really wanted tap tempo. The replica gets it done.
