Today’s Show Me Your Pedalboard entry comes from Daniel from Minneapolis, MN! Daniel is a bass player who brings the low end and the thunder in a solo act of his called Preamp and in a group setting with his band Fallen Empire. Daniel’s got a modest board that can pull some huge sounds, let’s take a look at what Daniel’s rocking:
Daniel’s bass starts off from either a Fender Jazz Bass or an Agile Harm Bass VI right into an Ernie Ball Volume Pedal. From the Ernie Ball volume pedal is the ever ubiquitous BOSS TU-2 tuner. There are plenty options out there for tuners, TC Electronics, and KORG got you covered but there’s also the upgraded BOSS TU-3 too that’s slightly more accurate. All in all, tuners fundamentally do the same thing so it’s all really personal preference. Daniel then brings the thunder with the Dwarfcraft Devices Eau Claire Thunder! A PedalsAndEffects favorite, and one of the first fuzzes to ever be featured on our Fuzz Wars series! A great fuzz pedal, the guys over at Dwarfcraft do amazing things and the Eau Claire Thunder is a great pedal that lets you get huge! Awesome stuff Daniel .

After the Eau Claire Thunder is a DOD Bi-Fet preamp, for an extra kick in the signal (try switching it with the fuzz, not an end all be all, but play around with the boost before and after the fuzz to see how you like it.) We here at PedalsAndEffects love our DOD pedals, whether it’s the vintage discontinued stuff, or their reissues (like the new DOD Meatbox!) you can’t go wrong with some DOD. DOD has also reissued the Bi-Fet preamp too! After the preamp is a Strymon Timeline that in Daniel’s words “handles…delay, octave delay, reverb, and flanger sounds.” The Strymon Timeline is a beast of a delay pedal that has the flexibility of getting warm lush delays, to really crazy/out there sounds. Daniel’s signal then ends in a Hex Cabs Phase Wizard that keeps his amps in phase.
