Today’s Show Me Your Pedalboard entry comes from Patrice, all the way from Belgium! Patrice is a bass player who holds down the groove in his band where he plays a combination of funk, soul, reggae and rock. For this reason he’s got the essentials on his board. Let’s take a look at what Patrice is working with:
Patrice’s signal starts off from his vintage 1980 Gibson Ripper bass into a TC Electronics Polytune. After the tuner is a PedalsAndEffects favorite, the BOSS OC-2 Octave pedal! After the OC-2 is a custom DIY BassScreamer by Technophobia, made by a pedal maker out in the Netherlands! Patrice mentions that it’s a clone of the classic Ibanez Tubescreamer with some modifications specifically for bass. It has a blend knob and a boost switch to really cut through the mix. It’s so cool to see people in all corners of the globe try and make their mark on effects pedals. These are the people you want to support, we’re all in this together and we can all support each other in striving towards unique innovation. The guy making pedals out of his house could soon be mass producing them all out of a factory. Very cool stuff.
After the BassScreamer is an Earthquaker Devices The Depths. The Depths is a uni-vibe/phaser pedal (in EQD’s words: their take on the “classical optical vibe circuit”). On guitar you can get some really cool Hendrix tones, it’s a great full sounding multidimensional pedal, and as the name implies really gives your instrument some depth. Great pick Patrice! You can check out the PedalsAndEffects review of the Depths here. After the Depths Patrice’s signal ends in a Line 6 DL4 Delay/Looper modeler.
Very cool stuff! Thanks, Patrice, for sending in your board! I’m always in awe when I see people all over the world sharing their boards and making strides in creativity and innovation. We’re all in this together! If you haven’t sent in your board email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
