Today’s Pedal Line Friday submission is from Albert Espinel. 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.
Pedal Line Friday – 10/14 – Albert Espinel
Been playing guitar for +20 years, always noisy punk-rock of 80s and early 90s.
The chain goes like this:
BOSS TU3 into the Philosopher King which I use as a compressor and to get a clean/grit mixed tone (with the grit control) and an extreme tremolo as well, then onto the Muffroom Cloud by Thorpy FX (best Muff ever) for very thick rhythm tones, then onto the Dr Freakenstein Fuzz for weird stuff and lead tones, then onto the King of Tone for my slightly overdriven tones (both on), then the Super Duper whose right channel is always on (makes my sound fatter and my distortions shine through it) and the left side of it is used as an alternative overdrive to the KoT, then the Hartman Flanger which is great on clean sounds, then onto the CE2 which is always on when playing clean/overdriven tones, then the Keeley Phase 24 which is a great and very subtle phaser and when used in conjunction with the Hartman and CE2 it makes together a nice granular slightly distorted modulation which sounds great on lead and slow tones; finally it all goes onto an Alter ego X4 which has proven to be a very easy to dial analog type delay and user friendly looper.
