Today’s pedal line is from Ricky Wilson. 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.
Hi, my name is Ricky Wilson and I am a bass player and I occasionally play guitar for my own projects. I play a Peavey T40 bass, with an Ampeg 8×10 cab and a T.C. Electronic Staccato 51′ amp. I recently put this pedal board together in order to make it more efficient for me to set up for shows. I built the pedal board within a two week period. It has 8 outlets wired into it as well as a power switch and an IEC power inlet for a C19 connector (which delivers the power from an outside source). The pedals on the left pedal board are mostly powered by the light blue power strip at the top and the pedals on the right pedal board are powered by their own adapter.
My main pedal board (The one on the left hand side) is as follows:
1. Morley Volume Pedal: I use this pedal mostly with my delay to make swells or if we end a song by letting the note ring out I will usually use this pedal to drop out a bit quicker.
2. Digitech Whammy: I use this pedal mostly for the detuned effect when I play with my band. When recording my own stuff I use this pedal on the 4th/5th setting alot. All around great pedal.
3. Dunlop 105Q Bass Wah: I use this for typical wah effects. I like to use this pedal with my Boss Flanger on the Gate/Pan effect with a high depth.
4. Source Audio Soundblox Bass Envelope Filter: I use this pedal if a few songs of ours to get a bass funk vibe.
5. Digitech Bass Synth Wah: This pedal has some really cool options. I use this pedal mostly for more sustained parts that I want to sound really weird. It drops the volume a bit but not enough to worry about.
6. Ibanez PD7 Phat-Hed Overdrive: I have tried a few overdrive pedals (not a lot) but I always come back to this one for some reason. Sounds great
7. Boss OC-2: Sounds great with the PD7 pedal. Custom paint job on this one
8. Boss Temolo/Pan: I use this pedal with the depth all the way down and on the tremolo setting with the rate going fairly fast. I only use this pedal in a couple of songs. Sounds amazing
9. Boss Flanger BF-3: I mostly use this pedal on the Gate/Pan mode with a high depth and a somewhat quick rate.
10. Behringer Ultra Vibrato UV300: This pedal is pretty cheap but the sounds you can get out of it sound really cool.
11. Strymon Timeline Delay: Just recently bought this pedal and it is an amazing delay.
Pedal Board on the right hand side is plugged into my amp as an FX Loop
1. Boss Bass Chorus CEB-3: I use this pedal on a lot of our songs
2. MXR Blowtorch: This pedal is used to give my signal extra overdrive
3. Way Huge Swollen Pickle (fuzz): Used in some heavier parts of our set
4. Moogerfooger Lowpass Filter: Used throughout most of our set. Has a smooth quality to it.
5. Moogerfooger Bass Murf : I use this pedal mostly for the Modular synth type sounds you can get out of this pedal. Usually during a weird Jam session.
6. Boss Slicer: This is another pedal like the Bass Murf that is used during jam sessions that just sounds really trippy.
