I can’t believe this one slipped by me.. never noticed it before! I wanted to talk about JÃ³nsi of Sigur Ros. I’ve been a fan of Sigur Ros for years. JÃ³nsi’s bowing guitar, the atmospheric vocals and guitar interplay. Good stuff. Re-al good stuff. I’ve analyzed JÃ³nsi’s pedals in the past, but it was great to see a Rig Rundown by Premier Guitar go into detail about the guitars, etc.
A couple of things. I thought it was interesting that he doesn’t like new strings, and only replaces broken strings. That’s like nails on the chalk board for me. I personally LOVE the feel and sound of new strings. I like to have new strings for every gig when possible. BUT.. one thing that I did relate with him, I like not cleaning my guitar. I have no idea. I’ll wipe my strings, but like the feel of the sweat, grime, etc on my guitars. Especially on those nitro-finish guitars. I thought that was weird of me, but it was interesting that JÃ³nsi was prefers this as well.
Okay, the pedals. Here is the breakdown:
I have seen a TS9 Tubescreamer in the place of the EBS ValveDrive in the past as well.
