Today’s Show Me Your Pedalboard entry comes from bass player Greg, from France! Greg’s board is a modest one, but he manages to make good use of board space and rock out with a mix of boutique pedals! He also reps Aguilar big time! Let’s take a look at what Greg’s rocking out with:
Where’s the tuner at?! I’ve been seeing this on a lot of boards that have come through lately. Do you guys tune and then plug into your board? Or do you have a rackmount tuner somewhere I don’t know about. Hmmmm, regardless its very very important to stay in tune! There are a plethora of options when it comes down to something so fundamental. BOSS, Korg, and TC Electronics got you covered. Greg’s board starts off into an Aguilar Octamizer. The Octamizer is a great octave pedal, you’ll definitely get great overtones from this pedal. It’s a great pedal amongst its octave predecessors like the BOSS OC-2 Octave and even the Digitech Whammy! Up next is a Markbass Compressore (I’d put this before the Octamizer, that’s just me though) followed by a Z.Cat Blender which is both an FX Loop and an A/B Switch. The Z.Cat Blender can be used to seamlessly blend both the original and the FX Loop to achieve a nice blended tone if needed. In the FX Loop of the Blender Greg’s got an Aguilar Agro Bass overdrive, waiting at the ready for whenever Greg needs that extra kick.

Greg’s signal continues into an Effectrode Phase-O-Matic Deluxe. This is definitely one of the gnarliest pedals I’ve ever seen! It’s got a really cool 50′ Americana diner look, like one of those old souped up hot rod Thunderbird cars. The Phase-O-Matic is an all tube based phase pedal that according to Effectrode, can add that little bit of subtle phase texture to crazy jet plane take off sounds! This is also a limited edition pedal with only 150 having been made! Very cool, I’d love to hear what it sounds like when the pedal is engaged in various stages of tube warmth. Greg’s signal then ends in a BOSS GEB-7 Bass Equalizer. Honorable mentions to the Aguilar Filter Twin envelope filter, and the Z.Cat Q Mod which is a Chorus, Flanger, Phaser and Tremolo.
