Hey guys! After a long and eventful 2014, I’m starting off the New Year strong by getting back to checking out YOUR pedalboards! So if you haven’t sent those pedalboards in, what are you waiting for?
The first pedalboard submission of the New Year comes from Andrea, all the way from Italy! Andrea plays bass in a band called “Inesatto.” His board mainly consists of guitar oriented pedals, but that really makes no difference. The inspiration you find from your pedals in creating your music is by far what’s the most important, and at PedalsandEffects we’re all about innovation and thinking outside the box.
Andrea’s got a mix of classic EHX pedals and boost options when it comes to finding his place in the mix. Andrea’s signal starts off into the ever present Boss TU-2 tuner, and then into an MXR KFK Ten Band EQ. From the EQ pedal, the signal finds itself in a vintage EHX Micro Synthesizer (a PedalsandEffects favorite!). The vintage Micro synthesizer is such a great and nuanced pedal it’s unfortunate that they don’t make them like they used to, so I’m happy to see this pedal on people’s boards. The Micro Synthesizer then gets a boost from a MXR Micro Amp, with the chain continuing onto one of my favorite fuzzes, the EHX Sovtek Big Muff. The chain then gets the option of an additional boost from an “Agate” boost/drive pedal which is made by a boutique company in Italy called “Effeti Di Clara.” Very cool! From the boost the chain goes into a MXR Phase 90 and then a BOSS DD-20 Giga Delay, Boss’ answer to the Line 6 DL4. The chain then ends in a BOSS PS-3 Pitch Shifter, which is a great old modulation pedal that has an “inverse delay” setting, which is similar to the “Magic” setting of the Earthquaker Devices Rainbow Machine.
Grazie, Andrea, for sharing your board with PedalsAndEffects! Let him know what you think of his board in the comments section below.
