Today’s pedal line is from Francisco Macedo. 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.
I play in some small projects in Portugal, and right now the band with the most success is called Ciclo Preparatório (https://www.facebook.com/ciclopreparatorio?fref=ts).
The Pedals from RIGHT to LEFT, BOTTOM TO TOP:
B1. POLYTUNE – great tuner, tunes nicely and fast!
B2. NANO SMALL STONE PHASER (EHX)– awesome phaser, it sounds really natural and smooth. and the size is perfect!
B3. MXR DYNA COMP – very good compressor, although while I’m not playing guitar it can be a bit noisy. But when I play, I can’t hear it, which is the important part!
B4. BEHRINGER ULTRA SHIFTER/HARMONIST US600 – My first goal was to buy the POG 2, but i didn’t had much “time” (and time is money!) .So i went for this instead, which is not that bad for a 50 euros (68.5 dolars) pedal! It does the job i need it to do (mostly octaves and other harmonies) and have some other crazy sounds.
T5. VISUAL SOUND DOUBLE TROUBLE – they say it is two tube screamers in one pedal. It’s one awesome pedal, it sounds really good. I basically use two settings with it, one louder (for solo stuff) and one quieter, for rhythmic stuff .
T6. LINE 6 DL4 – It’s a great delay stomp box, almost all delays sounds good. you can record your favourite delays in the 3 knobs on the left. The other one is tap tempo. I don´t use the looper, but it sounds good to me. there are some weird sounds too, if you want to do experimental or psychedelic stuff.
For the line6 I use its original power supply, and for the others I use the boss PSA power supply.
I play with a Mexican Fender Telecaster, into a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe.
Well, That’s it! Thank you every one and I am sorry for my bad English!”
