Today’s pedal line is from Jim Taylor. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Every Friday I’ll showcase a pedal line submission. Make sure you include any links to your band or music page.
Hello effects bay, this is the pedal line I use with my band “Soulgrass” Ive recently decided that I was dealing with too much floor gear on a nightly basis so I gutted my board, trimmed the fat and this is what I ended up with.
Guitar- Epiphone Dot, 96 MIM Fender Telecaster
Korg Pitchblack Tuner – Good tuner. Built like a tank.
Boss V Wah – Switched to this from a dunlop crybaby. Love the different models of wah to choose from(Morley, Vox, Crybaby) also a big fan of the univibe setting. Beware of the drive knob, it can ruin your tone.
Ibanez Tubescreamer – Standard, non modded. Levels cracked just beneath 12 o’clock to boost my amps natural break up.
Boss OC 3 – At first this pedal didn’t make the cut, but I’m glad I changed my mind. I use all three settings from song to song. I’ll use the poly mode with mild settings to fatten up 5ths, octaves and barre chords. OC 2 setting is good with a light chime volume and I personally like to add wah. I use the drive setting the most. Again beware, too much drive will just sound like a spoon hitting mashed potatoes.
MXR Analog Chorus – Great wet pedal. I’ll use mild settings with drive to get Alice N Chains tone or high settings with no drive for more of a Soundgarden affect.
Boss DD 6 – Another all purpose pedal. I find a use for all its settings but I mainly use it with mild settings to fatten up my sound then kick on tap tempo for leads and hooks
