This week’s Show Me Your Pedalboard comes from bass and guitar player Keith.
Keith’s board comes with a number of standards, like the Boss TU-2, OC-2, CS-2, and the BF-2, as well as a discontinued Ibanez CS-9. But there are a few large, attention grabbing pedals that can really light up some unique sounds for his bass: an EHX Ravish Sitar, a Moogerfooger MF-101 Lowpass Filter, and an Earthquaker Devices Hummingbird. The Ravish Sitar adds a series of tunable drones and simulated sympathetic resonance. When played on the bass, some interesting sounds are waiting to be discovered. The Moogerfooger MF-101 is about as big a name as the pedal itself. Equipped with a 12db and a 24db per octave low pass filter with self-oscillating resonance, the MF-101 can make any distorted input smooth and gentle, or scream like mad. And don’t forget to throw in the envelope for some good funky measure. Lastly, the Hummingbird can add a smooth tremolo, or even chop the signal into near square waves, which can create some nice harmonics to be fed into the Moogerfooger.
There are a few other honorable mentions, like the Fulltone Bass-Drive Mosfet, the Aguilar TLC Compressor, and the TC Electronic Ditto Looper, and PolyTune Mini. All around, Keith’s board leaves the ears wondering what kind of beefed-up, flanged, filtered sympathetic tones might be found in this colorful collection. Thanks Keith!
