Todayâ€™s Pedal Line Friday submission is from Mark Grundhoefer. If you have a pedal line (doesnâ€™t have to be in a board) for your rig, please email me a photo, bio, description of pedals and routing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Every Friday Iâ€™ll showcase a pedal line submission. Make sure you include any links to your band or music page.
Pedal Line Friday – 5/26 – Mark Grundhoefer
My name is Mark Grundhoefer. I live in Atlanta, GA, and play dates around the southeast. My board changes a lot, but this current version has stuck and will be used for gigs through the summer. For shows I typically play a 1978 Les Paul Standard and a custom built single pickup Esquire through a 3 Monkeys Orangutan Combo. My pedal board is a Tonesnob and I use a Bob Bradshaw power supply. It’s wired with Lava Cables and I use Rattlesnake Cables to go from guitar to board and board to amp.
Signal path: TC Polytune Mini > Xotic SP Compressor > Dunlop Mini Wah > Xotic Robotalk > MJR Effects Custom Overdrive > Xotic Soul Driven AH > Heavy Lids Custom Fuzz > Walrus Audio Julia > Empress Tremolo 1 > Empress Tape Delay
Aside from performing with bands, I work a lot in the studio and have released several albums under my own name. I just finished and released a new single called “Backwards We Go” and you can listen to it on all digital platforms. Check it out:
