Today’s Show Me Your Pedalboard entry comes from Jeremy! Jeremy’s board is full of new pedals by good old pedal makers. Glad to see newer pedals catching on with people. Some musicians (myself included) can be very set in their ways with vintage and older pedals. You always got to keep an open mind when it comes to equipment, new and old, popular and obscure. You never know which company may surprise you with their newest endeavors! Jeremy also reps Source Audio big time! Let’s take a look at what Jeremy is rocking out with:
Jeremy’s board starts off into the ever present BOSS TU-2 Tuner immediately followed by an MXR Bass Compressor (the ideal placement for a compressor in a signal chain, in my opinion). Following the compressor is the newly revived Park Fuzz Sound by Earthquaker Devices! Park Amplifiers was run by the late, great Jim Marshall of Marshall Amps almost concurrently up until 1982. In that short time Park Amps came up with the Park Fuzz sound fuzz pedal. Earthquaker Devices teamed up with the recently resurrected Park Amps to reissue the Park Fuzz Sound, a very cool vintage sounding fuzz. You can peep the PedalsAndEffects review, here. Great pick Jeremy! In case Jeremy wants some more options for dirt the Park Fuzz Sound is immediately backed up by a Source Audio Soundblox Pro Bass Multiwave distortion.

We then move onto the experimental, psychedelic part of Jeremy’s chain where he’s able to pull some really crazy sounds with what he’ got. Jeremy’s got an MXR Analog Chorus running into a Source Audio Soundblox Modulator which is a chorus/flanger/phaser/tremolo all in one. Now if it were up to me, (not to knock Source Audio) I would consider getting pedals that are dedicated to flanging and phasing since you already got chorus covered. Give the MXR Phase 99 a shot, it’s quickly becoming one of my favorite pedals. For flange try out the TC Electronic Vortex flanger! Jeremy’s board continues onto a Soundblox Dimension Reverb and ends in a BBE Sonic Maximizer Sonic Stomp boost pedal.

Honorable mentions on Jeremy’s board are a Soundblox Hub that connects to other pedals and acts as a MIDI sequencer where he can save and call various pedal configurations as presets on a Tech 21 MIDI Mouse. Another honorable mention to the Source Audio Dual Expression pedal which he can use to manipulate said MIDI sequences. And to not forget how he’s powering it all, Jeremy’s rocking out with a VooDoo Labs Pedal Power Mondo!
