Today’s pedal line is from Olav Christensen. 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! I enjoyed your shared pedal line Friday Facebook post on Home Recording Weekly and was inspired to email you a pic of my own! I am actually a vocalist but have recently taken up bass and guitar! In the process of recording my EP, I went completely overboard on pedals and it has become somewhat of an addiction for me! (-:
My pedals consist of 3 Danes and 5 Americans (I am a Dane residing in Brooklyn, NY) Anyway, from top right to left TC PolyTune, Fulltone OCD, Emma Stinkbug, Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Nano and from there to the bottom row right to left Keeley 4 knob comp, Tortuga Martini, Electro-Harmonix Electric Mistress and finally the TC Flashback. I have gotten quite a bit of grief for placing the Holy Grail reverb before the Keeley compressor but I am a huge fan of Daniel Lanois’ guitar sound and experimenting with placement led me to trying this out and I absolutely love that ducked reverb that just seems to expand forever!
Not in the picture I also have a Red Witch Medusa and a modded Dunlop Cry Baby! I used to own a WayHuge Ringworm and I kinda loved it but the use for it is very limited I feel! My pedals are sitting on a Gator board which is a little overkill since I do recording in my bedroom almost exclusively! I guess I just like the order it provides.
I play on a Fender Squier guitar as well as a Fender Jazz Bass for which I use the Keeley pedal and sometimes the OCD! I record straight from the pedals into my recorder and then use the plugin called Recabinet in my DAW! You can hear the result here: Alpha, by DVR
