Today’s pedal line is from Paul Waclawsky. 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.
Hi there Effects Bay. I’m sending you my submission for Pedal Line Friday. I’m the singer/guitarist for The Boxing Lesson based in Austin, TX. I also do various guitar tech work from time to time. I play a vintage Fender Jazzmaster into a vintage Fender SuperReverb. Here’s my current effects
Vintage Vox Clyde McCoy – I was lucky to get one of these original Italian wahs years ago when they were still affordable. Best sounding wah I’ve ever played. Very vocal with a gorgeous freq sweep. WAH WAH!
MXR Dynacomp – This is the ’76 script reissue. I love this pedal. It blends with gain pedals very well and is aggressive on it’s own. Great tone. I use it a lot.
Marshall Guv’nor – This is the first version of this pedal. I recently retired my Menatone KOB and put my old Guv back in line. It has fat tone and a very dynamic voice. I’m way into it right now. It produces complex harmonics. Kinda like a Marshall Tube Screamer. I run it before my fuzz pedals because I like how it blends with the Muff in this position.
Univox SuperFuzz – The one and only. Gnarly octave up fuzz.
Ramshead Big Muff – I’ve had this pedal for a long long time and it sounds fantastic. It has always blown away any other Muff I’ve tried. No use changing a thing here. Blends with all pedals very well.
Colorsound Powerboost Clone – My friend Craig Conrey at Grantham Elec. Co. made this for me. It is a faithful reproduction of the 1969 Powerboost model but with a master vol. We call it the secret weapon. It is an OD, Fuzz, Treble and Bass booster. Sounds fantastic on cleaner leads and boosting the Muff and Superfuzz. It’s the only pedal I’ve found that boosts the Univox SuperFuzz correctly.
ZVEX Super Hard On – Always on. Makes everything sound better and richer.
Boss Dimension C – I like the 4 button layout. The chorus sounds are lush and easy to use. Sometimes I turn the pedal on and pop all the buttons out so none are chosen and it gives a subtle modulation effect. Setting zero.
Vintage ADA Flanger – This is the ultimate flange pedal for me. Wild range of sounds from gentle modulation to ring modulation. I love the jet scream flanger sounds. These pedal has a choice of the odd or even harmonics and they both are sublime settings.
Boomerang Looper – Fantastic looper. I use this mostly in the backwards setting. I used this on the intro solo to The Boxing Lesson’s “Health is the New Drug” from our recent full length release. Sounds like backwards tape.
Boss Loopstation – It is full of sounds/noises that I created with a 4ms Triwave Picogenerator, Tape Delay Oscillations and an ADA Flanger. I run this into one of the three inputs on the front of the Space Echo and blend it with the guitar signal before it goes to my Fender Super Reverb amp.
Roland Space Echo 150 – I run everything through an old Space Echo unit. Model 150 is only tape delay. I had an old RE-201 that died on me and read up on how the later models with just tape delay are very well made. I change the tape every 6 months and have never had a prob with this one.
Thanks for checking out my rig!
