Probably around 1998 or so, Jimmy (who does the demos here on the site) introduced me to some Audley Freed. I remember Jimmy was trying to dissect an Audley lick and was explaining to me what was happening in there. I was impressed. Audley is a very interesting musician (musically). The music is not my preferred style, but I definitely can appreciate it. What I really like, is that he has a distinct style and is genuinely interested in putting his mark and style with his playing. Make the lick your own versus just rehashing the same lick everyone else is playing. That’s cool. I haven’t thought about Audley Freed in a long time, but when I saw Mojo Hand post a photo this morning.
I like this board. Simple. All about tone. I was surprised to not see a wah, but it might not be pictured.
Here is a break down of pedals for Audley Freed’s board:
Mojo Hand FX Rook Royale
Xotic RC Booster
Strymon El Capistan
MXR Custom Comp
Boss TU-2 Tuner
Here is a cool video where Audley talks about guitar. The series is pretty cool:

This guy is the real deal. Pure talent. In my opinion he’s right up there with, and in a lot of aspects, beyond SRV , Joe Bonamassa, Jimi, etc. He is truly one of the best.Reply
