Today’s Pedal Line Friday submission is from Craig Griffiths. 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.
There’s info about me and my current album ‘Stompbox’ at my website www.skullbug.com
I have many pedals I like to tweak while playing, such as the ZVexes with 10 knobs between just the 2 of them, so I’ve split them into a small board on the floor that goes into the main board on a keyboard rack for easy knob tweaking. I have a large collection of other pedals I swap in and out but the current setup for recording my next album ‘Tube Screamer’ is as follows:
ZVex Fuzz Factory
Xenagama 3 channel loop switcher
Ibanez TS9DX – ex-Steve Vai (signed on side)
Ibanez PT999 Phase Tone
Digitech Death Metal
TC Mini Polytune
Red Witch Ruby Fuzz
EHX B9 Organ
DOD 440 Envelope Filter
MXR M75 Super Badass Distortion
TC Flashback Mini
On the small board the BBE Wah and TC Ditto Looper are in-line, and the two Boss pedals are hooked to the single loop switcher so they don’t suck tone when not in use. On the main board the Zvexes, MXR Super Badass, Hotone Trem, Hotone Octa and TC Delay are in-line. All other pedals are grouped into 3 loops off the switcher as they include a few non-true bypass tone suckers.
