Yesterday, following the great band Tera Melos on Facebook, I saw that Nick Reinhart posted a recent shot of his pedalboard. Now, Nick, he changes things ALL the time, and his boards are really tough to identify the pedals – possibly the hardest, since he paints the pedals and flips the footpads on the Boss pedals, etc. when they break, etc.
Nick Reinhart is a very unique guitarist, especially when it comes to effects, sounds and technique. I first of Tera Melos a few years ago, and they blew my mind on multiple levels. In my opinion, incredibly hard to categorize. They really have their own style going on. It’s crazy. It’s weird. It’s heavy. It’s mathy. It’s punky. It’s a lot of things.
Nick amazes me that he changes up his board so much, especially the level of tap dancing he needs to do. I love the fact that he is always exploring and searching for new options vs. locking into a rut. The other characteristic of his pedals, is he likes to use the older ‘cheap’ stuff at times. Older DOD and Boss pedals can be found over the years.
Here is a taste of Tera Melos live:

If you see anything incorrect, let me know by commenting below. Please note that some of the Boss pedals (TU-2, PS-5 and DD-5) have different Boss footswitches. I was able to get good looks at these pedals from other close ups found. Also, let me know what you think of Nick Reinhart and Tera Melos!
