Today’s pedal line is from Julian Estrada. 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 email@example.com. Every Friday I’ll showcase a pedal line submission. Make sure you include any links to your band or music page.
My name is Julian, i´ve followed your blog for the past 3 years and its always a source of excellent content. I submitted my pedalboard a couple of years ago, and since then it has suffered some small changes, i´ll detail all pedals anyway.
Dunlop CAE Wah:
Such a sweet beast, heavy as a coffin, but worth every pound, this artifact really makes a guitar wail like it should, lots of voices in between. great pedal!
Joyo Ultimate Octave:
China’s take on the Foxx Tone Machine, works great, is not outstanding but gets the job done for those Jim McCarty(ish) Cactus sounds.
Voodoo Lab Superfuzz:
The right amount of overdrive and fuzz combined into one, depending on the amp it can sound very different, but it always sound great. My main dirt box on the board.
Carl Martin DC Drive:
Awesome OD, can cover most cool tones from a slight crunch to an almost hi gain distortion, really powerful pedal and really cheap compared to it’s “rivals” the FullDrive or the CAE OD.
EHX Micro Pog:
A modern classic, probably the best pedal in its genre, great tracking (better than the POG2 IMHO), sub octave is absolutely sick.
MXR Carbon Copy:
Another modern classic, beautiful dark delay, great for recording, not so much for live situations, since it’s so dark it gets lost in the mix easily, but still a great pedal.
All powered with a Joyo power supply which works perfectly.
I’m a semi-pro musician from South America, right now i’m focused on a retro rock band heavily influenced by Zeppelin and stuff like Cactus and Mountain in the spirit of more recent swedish rock bands like Graveyard or Greenleaf. Not much stuff to hear yet, but be sure to check us out at:
