I know today is not Friday, but due to the large queue of Pedal Line Friday, I thought I do a few on Wednesdays! Today’s pedal line is from Eli Jeffery. 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 email@example.com. Every Friday I’ll showcase a pedal line submission. Make sure you include any links to your band or music page.
I’m Eli Jeffery the rhythm guitar/banjo player for a country outfit from Louisville, KY called Black Bird County (www.facebook.com/blackbirdcounty). Here is my submission for Pedal Line Friday.
I built it out of an old Samsonite suitcase. Instead of using velcro I drilled holes every 2 inches and used zip ties to hold down the pedals. It’s all powered with a Visual Sound 1 Spot power supply.
Boss makes the best stomp box tuners in my opinion. I’ve had it forever and have never had any trouble out of it. They’re built like a tank.
Wampler Tweed ’57:
This is a really rad OD that really gets that Tweed brake up. I use it to keep a little bit of dirt on my guitar pretty much all the time. Sounds amazing through basically every amp.
Gearmanndude Luther Drive:
I was in the guitar shop that Gearmanndude work’s at here in Louisville and got to try this dude out. It’s a TS 808 clone. It has decent clarity. I use it for an extra punch when needed.
MXR Carbon Copy:
The Carbon Copy seems to be becoming a pedal board standard. I mainly like to leave it set as a slap back. Occasionally, I use it on longer stuff. Before I had this I’ve had two different Danechos but they both crapped out. It seems to be built well.
This is an excellent tremolo. This things super simple. My favorite feature about it is the speed button. It gives you the ability to cut your speed in half.
I like to keep some reverb on my cleans and I switch out amps(some with no reverb) so often, I picked up this guy. It is suppose to emulate a 63′ Fender Spring Reverb unit. I think it does a decent job at it as well.
