I love it when give away winners send me photos of themselves with their prizes! The Source Audio Soundblox 2 Stingray give away was a hot give away to say the least. A high end pedal like the Stingray deserves the attention it got, and I’m glad it found a happy home. I would like to again thank the nice people at Source Audio for offering it up to a lucky EffectsBay reader. Please, please, please take a moment and check out their site. They make AWESOME pedals and worth a look!
The package came in earlier this week while I was traveling for business. I was excited to get home and try it out but that was a long couple of days.Â I was blown away with the various stickers, t-shirt and of course the pedal itself.
I quickly moved some pedals around on my board to make it fit into the layout.Â It is a really nice pedal with a load of functionality.Â I can’t believe how easy it is to use;Â i know that i will continue to learn things in the upcoming sessions as i get use to the pedal and the amazing depth of customization of tone.
I came home from work on Friday to find that my wife had it plugged into her setup.Â I had not had Source Audio on my radar prior to this but it is a line of products I will look more into based on the functionality and inter-connectivity.Â Given her use of it I may just have to buy my own.
I included a photo with me posing with the pedal and wearing the t-shirt (fits great) with my treasured 1972 Les Paul Recording.
As promised, I also have a submission for Pedal Line Friday.Â My line is as follows:
1) Ernie Ball MVP Jr Volume Pedal
2) Korg Pitchblack Tuner off of the AUX jack
3) MXR Dyna Comp Compressor
4) Source Audio Stingray Multi-Filter
5) Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi
6) MXR Stereo Flanger (early 1980’s version)
7) MXR EVH Phase 90
8) Strymon BigSky Reverberator
9) VOX Double Deca Delay
Playing into a VOX VT20 amp with the VFSS Bank footswitch capable of using amp presets.Â The board is a PedalTrain 2 with VooDoo Lab power unit mounted to the underneath.
Thanks again for pedal, t-shirt and running the site.Â It is always great to see how and what others are using.Â With a million different pedals and manufacturers a good resource is a great place to start to find a new tone.
