Todayâ€™s pedal line is from Nigel Houghton. If you have a pedal line (doesnâ€™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 Iâ€™ll showcase a pedal line submission. Make sure you include any links to your band or music page.
I’ve sent you a pic before, but I’ve since started playing with a different band. Which means I was able to simplify my board and re-arrange things. Here’s the breakdown:
1. Fulltone Clyde Deluxe Wah – I don’t use this a lot, but it has a useful buffer in it.
a. Lightning boy audio OptiMu Prime – tremendous tube driven compressor, has a great musical sound to it. Not as heavy as most compressors, this one is just awesome.
b. Lightning boy audio Soul Drive IV – Simple tube powered overdrive, oozes tone.
c. TC Electronic Polytune
d. Ekko 616 Analog Delay – Like it says, analog delay. I like it better than the MXR pedal you see a lot of. Just adds a little extra something every now and then to one or two songs.
e. Fulltone Supa-Trem – I have to stop myself from never turning this pedal off, it’s just awesome sauce in a box. Shouldn’t be used all the time, but I really want to.
3. Fulltone Catalyst – used as a boost for solos, just adds a little bit of beef, definitely makes it louder.
The two Lightningboyaudio pedals are on pretty much all the time, they are just excellent, hand made, top quality units with the kind of tone you would expect from these kind of pedals.
The Boss FS-6 is used to control the AirTurn BT-105 and has nothing to do with the sound, it just helps me know where I am by controlling the app I use on my iPad for set lists and songs.
Everything is powered by a Voodoo 2 and a T-Rex Fuel Tank Jr. The pedals sit on a PedalTrain Jr inside an ATA style case.
Hope you like it, like I said, it’s pretty simple and straight forward.
