The other day I received an email from Mike Vegas of Nice Rack Canada letting me know about a recent board they just put together for the guitarist of Metric – Jimmy Shaw. I’m a fan of the Canadian band Metric.
We recently built this system for Guitarist Jimmy Shaw of Metric. I’ve been a fan of the album Live it Out for years. I have to admit that I don’t know too much about Jimmy Shaw, so this is great to see his board, and man… it’s pretty awesome.
Below is the what Mike wrote about Jimmy’s rig:
The controller board is at Jimmy’s home position onstage and the effects offstage. Due to the size of aircraft often involved in the bands logistics, a pedalboard format was preferred over a rack system without compromising the functionality of a MIDI switching rig which could interface with Ableton.
The signal flow is 2x Parallel Series Wired MIDI Controlled True Bypass.
Path 1 is Boss OD3 – DOD FX55 – Throne Room Revelator – Electro Harmonix POG2 – Nice Rack Canada Gain Adjust Insert – Red Witch Titan Delay – Eventide Space – Boss PN2 Tremolo – Amp.
