Today’s Show Me Your Pedalboard entry comes from Connor from San Francisco! Home sweet home! Connor’s got a very modest board, but with the right combination is able to pull off a lot of interesting sounds. Let’s take a look at what Connor is working with:
After what I’m assuming is a tuner, Connor’s board starts off into a MXR Bass Compressor then right into a BOSS LS-2 Line Selector. Great pedal when you’re working with multiple amps and want to switch between the two (or use both simultaneously), in this case Connor is using the pedal as a feedback loop, but I may be mistaken. After the LS-2 is a Digitech Bass Whammy. The new Bass Whammy is a great pedal! Glad Digitech finally updated and mass produced them as the previous iteration found a healthy life on the reseller’s market. The new Whammy features better tracking and pitch shifting. Check out the PedalsAndEffects review here! After the Bass Whammy is one of my favorites the BOSS OC-2 Octaver (Again, no difference between an Octave OC-2 and Octaver. The pedal just got rebranded, and as always, if you can, go Japan with BOSS!)
After the OC-2 is an MXR Bass Overdrive followed by an EHX Nano Bass Big Muff, with Big Muff’s it’s always go big or go home with me. Get yourself a big chassis Big Muff. You won’t regret it and your tone will thank you! After the Big Muff is a BOSS TR-2 Tremolo followed by a Mantic Conceptual Density Hulk, a sub harmonizer and low frequency booster. Those pedals are flying off the shelves at Mantic! It’s a great and gnarly sub pedal and I’m happy to see people supporting great people who have a clear vision for effects. Great pick Connor! You can check out the Density Hulk on an episode of Sub Wars with Jonathan Hischke right here. The Density Hulk then finds itself in a DOD Envelope Filter into a BOSS RV-3 Digital Reverb Delay then all the way back into the line selector.
Thanks, Conor, for sending in your board! It’s always cool to see how people make use of feedback loops and utilize the multiple input/outputs that some pedals provide. If you haven’t sent in your board, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and it could be featured right here, at PedalsAndEffects!
