Today’s Show Me Your Pedalboard entry comes from Jarod! Jarod’s board is small, but deadly featuring only the bare necessities with a couple of fun pedals to get really wild with his sound. Let’s take a look at what Jarod is rocking:
Jarod’s board starts off into a Korg pitchblack tuner, a good choice and a great alternative to the ever popular BOSS tuners. The LED is very bright and very easy to see in a dark club setting. After the tuner is an Aguilar TLC Compressor. First off, great pedal location, early compressor location can really make the difference in harmonics and getting your signal to pop. With a compressor that early on you can really dig into your bass (or guitar!) without worry of clipping, especially in a recording setting. After the compressor is an Electro-Harmonix Superego synth pedal. Up next is a Dwarfcraft Eau Claire Thunder fuzz pedal. The Eau Claire Thunder was featured on PedalsAndEffects very first round of Fuzz Wars. Check it out!

The Eau Claire Thunder is backed up by The Great Destroyer, also by Dwarfcraft. The Great Destroyer pedal is in Dwarfcraft’s words: “Rhythmic oscillation and industrial fuzz in a true bypass package.” Dwarfcraft is always coming through with great pedals. They got some wizards for engineers over there. After the Great Destroyer is one of my favorite Earthquaker Devices pedals, the Disaster Transport. The Disaster Transport is a phenomenal delay with up to 625ms of delay time as well as in depth echo modulation control. The middle child of the Disaster Transport series, there is also the real estate friendly Disaster Transport Jr, and the gargantuan, Disaster Transport Sr. with a plethora of extra features.
