Today’s Pedal Line Friday submission is from Blake Galloway. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Every Friday I’ll showcase a pedal line submission. Make sure you include any links to your band or music page.
Pedal Line Friday – 1/5 – Blake Galloway
Hi, my name is Blake. Recent grad from UofM Music and Entertainment program, and I play guitar for St. John, a local Memphis indie folk artist.
Tucked underneath the board is my Voodoo Lab Power Supply. It’s capable of powering 8 different pedals.
The PolyTune 3 starts the chain. One of the best tuners currently on the market. You can switch between buffered (always on) and true-bypass (on/off). It also has a second 9v input, which I use to power another pedal with.
Then, I have the Boss GE-7 EQ for shaping my tones. Scoop the mids, back off the highs–whatever’s necessary.
Next up, the DynaComp. Pretty basic compression pedal. Does exactly what it’s supposed to.
Then, FullTone OCD. I got this pedal for $60 from a Facebook deal, and couldn’t be happier. This is a medium overdrive, made for adding crunch to the mix.
After that, there’s the Big Muff w/Wicker. I put this nice fuzz pedal after the crunch of the OCD for a nice distorted sound. The sustain this pedal adds is phenomenonal.
Next up, the MXR MicroAmp. Another essential pedal. With the ability to add 26 dB as a clean boost, you’re able to shine in the mix. Especially for lead work.
Then, there’s the Neo Clone Chorus pedal. As a nano, it offers a smaller footprint to maximize board space. Really basic chorus pedal.
Next up, the Wampler Tape Delay. Also got this one in a Facebook deal for $60–total steal. This pedal offers a lot of control. Nice, warm analog sound. I really needed the tap tempo feature, too.
And lastly, the BBE Sonic Stomp. Just clicking it makes everything else sound better. Since my Vox AC15 doesn’t have an EQ on the normal channel, I use this to clean up and shape the tone.
