Today’s pedalboard comes from Alec, a solo multi-instrumentalist who utilizes both effects pedals and loop machines to round out his sound.
Alec’s Fender Bass VI starts its signal into a Korg Pitchblack tuner, which is a great alternative to the Boss TU-2. From the tuner the signal goes into an EHX Micro POG. From the Micro POG he splits his signal into stereo which runs into a bass, and guitar amp.
On the guitar side of the signal split, his signal picks up some overdrive from the Talons by Earthquaker Devices. I’ve previously said that I wouldn’t put octave, sub, or polyphonic pedals before a distortion, fuzz, or overdrive. The dynamic range of the octave pedal becomes too compressed, and loses that pedals unique potential. After the overdrive, the signal finds itself into the arpeggiated wackiness of the Earthquaker Devices Arpanoid. The signal then continues through an EHX Electric Mistress chorus and then finally ending on a Boss DD-7 delay.
On the bass side of the signal split, his signal runs through a Musket Fuzz by Blackout Effectors. The Musket Fuzz was featured on a round of Fuzz Wars with Jonathan Hischke and is one of his favorite pedals, check it out! From the Musket the signal continues through an Earthquaker Devices Rainbow Machine, and the Disaster Transport Jr. also by Earthquaker Devices. The Disaster Transport Jr. while a smaller, more compact version of the Disaster Transport Sr. is still an incredibly versatile delay. Check out my review of both pedals here.
