Today’s pedalboard comes from Jann from Portland, Oregon! Jann’s board is an incredibly compact and travel friendly fly rig that measures only 14 inches long! Jann plays bass in a band called Graveltruck where his other band members live in Boise, Idaho. That’s a heck of a commute for music, but kudos to you for making it work. Let’s take a look at what Jann is working with:
Jann plays a Hohner B2A bass, a headless bass much like the ones Steinberger makes. Those are always fun to play with, and are great to travel and practice with. From the bass the signal starts in a TC Electronic Polytune Mini then into a Fairfield Circuitry The Accountant compressor. I am a huge fan of Fairfield Circuitry, having reviewed their Meet Maude Analog Delay, their Randy’s Revenge Ring Mod, and their Four Eyes Fuzz was featured in a round of Fuzz Wars. I don’t have any experience with the compressor but those guys are always putting out great things. Up next is a JHS Mini Foot Fuzz which is followed up by a Malekko Omicron Tremolo pedal. After the tremolo is a Mooer Lo-Fi Machine which ends in a TC Electronics Flashback Delay Mini.
This may very well be the most compact pedalboard I’ve ever seen! This board looks like it’d be so hassle-free to gig and travel with. You can fit everything, bass and board into a single bag! You can still pull a very versatile amount of sounds with this setup, and since all of the pedals are uniform its extremely modular.
Thanks, Jann, for sending in your pedalboard. No matter the size of your pedalboard its all about what works best for you.
Speaking of traveling, I’ll be doing clinics in Australia at Pedal Empire in Brisbane on the 25th, and Deluxe Guitars in Melbourne on the 27th, while I’m in the country for the Deltron 3030 tour. Come through!
If you haven’t sent in your pedalboard, big or small, what are you waiting for?
