Todayâ€™s pedal line is from Joe Bell. If you have a pedal line (doesnâ€™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 Iâ€™ll showcase a pedal line submission. Make sure you include any links to your band or music page.
My Name is Joe, I play in a alternative rock band out of Baltimore called The Life Review. Â I’ve comprised my pedal board to utilize the main factors to pretty much make any sound you want without needing an expensive list of boutique pedals and expression pedals everywhere. Â I bought a pedal board from www.rondomusic.com for about 30 bucks. Â I’ve been using a daisy chain to power all of my pedals with little or no noise. Â That all runs into a Peavey JSX head with a Mesa Rectifier 2×12. Â My axe is an Ibanez RG471.
Signal Chain from the guitar into the first pedal:
Korg Pitch Black Tuner: Â Great tuner pedal for the price, accurate, fast reading. Â Takes a bit to break in for some reason but I’m not complaining.
Boss CS-3 Compression/Sustainer: Â I dig this pedal alot. Â A compressor is definitely a must have, Â It brings my sound together and mix with the gibraltar bridge on my Ibanez, I have nearly endless sustain.
MXR Distortion Plus: Â I use this for leads mostly. Â I run a low gain amp setting so this is great if I ever need more saturation.
Boss NS-2 Noise Suppresor: Â Another must have if you’re running a decent amount of gain. Â Gets rid of all the hiss and hum’s. Â and it’s very flexible.
Golden Path Effects Loop: Â You can get these guys off of ebay for about $40. Â I like to keep my volume and tone based effects seperate from my modulation effects for a cleaner signal. Â This pedal also allows me to turn on and off multiple effects are the same time.
Boss PS-6 Harmonist: Â This pedal is really sick. Â Every option you can think of in pitch shifting. Â Harmonize leads in any key, major or minor. Â There’s even two different 3-part harmony settings. Â Detune and the ever awesome S-Bend which you can use to dive bomb or sky rocket between 4 octaves. Â It’s definitely the best pitch-shifting pedal for its price.
Digitech Synth Wah: Â I really don’t use this pedal too often. Â but mixed with my other pedals, you can get some really crazy sounds out of it. Â I’m a knob tweaker so having the ability to throw some synth sounds over my guitar is alot of fun!
Line-6 DL-4 Delay: Â This is my rock. Â I use delay more than anything else. Â I’m a big circa survive fan and I really like that big spacey, ambient sound you can get from a good delay and this is the best one I’ve used so far. Â Not to mention, it’s got several different types of delay with a huge about of parameter adjustment.
These three pedals run out from the golden path and back into it which then goes to my amp.

If you’re a fan of thrice, the receiving end of sirens, pierce the veil or 30 seconds to mars, you’ll defnitely dig us. Â 😀
