Jimmy Smith of Foals is starting to be one of my favorite guitarists. The combination of his and Yannis’ guitar interplay is a huge part of why I really like Foals. Over the last year, I’ve been playing a lot of my Fender Jazzmaster, and thought it was great seeing Jimmy using one (actually a few) for the Holy Fire tour and the videos related to their Holy Fire release.
Recently, I got to see them at the Crystal Ballroom in Portland, OR (I’ll be writing more about that in the near future) but my wife was able to get a partial photo of Jimmy Smith’s pedal board and thought some of you might be interested in what’s going on there.
Here is the breakdown of pedals from this shot..
All pedals are routed through a GigRig QuarterMaster 10 true bypass strip.
