Today’s Pedal Line Friday submission is from Mark Rubenstein. 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 – 2/16 – Mark Rubenstein
I thought the following submission regarding my new pedal board might be interesting for other viewers. I was previously using two smaller, connected boards. I wanted to condense everything and got a great deal on a Pedaltrain Classic with Voodoo Labs Mondo power supply already mounted below the board. The Mondo lets me power 12 of the pedals, so I am powering a couple from the Boss NS-2 and a a couple of others from a 1-Spot. I plan to add a smaller Voodoo Labs power supply below the board to accommodate the pedals that are not currently connected to the Mondo. As you can see, Wampler pedals are very well represented. This board gives me a huge variety of clean and distorted tones for blues, rock and fusion music.
The following is the routing of the pedals:
Peterson Stomp Classic (I have used Peterson tuner pedals for years. This is the ultimate tuner for me and is also used for intonating all my guitars
Visual Sound Pure Tone Buffer (ensures no high end loss than normally occurs with the use of many pedals)
TC Electronics Viscous Vibe (used for clean arpeggio passages and with the Wampler Velvet Fuzz for greats Hendrix-type leads.
Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor – I route the following pedals in its Send/Receive loop to ensure a quiet signal from compressor and dirt pedals
* Wampler Ego Compressor
* Hardwire CM-2 Tube Overdrive
* Wampler Euphoria
* Wampler Pinnacle
* Wampler Sovereign
* Wampler Velvet Fuzz
* Radial Tonebone Classic Distortion
* Seymour Duncan Twin Tube Classic
From the Boss NS-2 Output, the signal feeds the following modulation pedals
The following delay and reverb pedals are routed through my amp’s effects loop
* TC Electronics Transition Delay (similar to the TC Electronics Flashback, but with some different delays)
* Wampler Faux Tape Echo (I love the warmth of the echoes from this pedal)
* TC Electronics Hall of Fame Reverb
