Today’s Show Me Your Pedalboard entry comes from Thomas from the Netherlands! Thomas is a bass player who plays pop/funk but but sometimes branches out into psychedelia and shoegaze and his board definitely accommodates his versatility. Let’s take a look at what Thomas is working with:
Thomas rocks a 1977 Ibanez Silver Series Jazz Bass before going into a Behringer TU300 Tuning pedal. Behringer has managed to be an incredibly underrated effects company. Their UV300 Vibrato is an accurate and inexpensive contender to the hard to find, vintage BOSS VB-2 Vibrato. Never count any pedal company out! You might be surprised, check out the PedalsAndEffects comparison here. Up next is an Electro-Harmonix Bass Big Muff followed by a classic Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi. If it were up to me I’d just keep the classic Big Muff on board. From the Big Muff Thomas’ chain continues onto a DOD FX25B envelope filter. Much like the DOD Meatbox, DOD (Now Digitech) makes some quality stuff, I can’t say I have too much experience with the envelope filter but Thomas says he uses it to get a great synth sound. Very cool!
After the envelope filter comes an Electro-Harmonix Stereo Electric Mistress flanger/chorus followed by a Behringer double team of the VD400 Delay and TP300 Tremolo/Pan. I wonder how that chalks up to the BOSS PN2 Tremolo/Pan. Behringer does a surprisingly good job of replicating classic effects. Take for example the Behringer Vintage Time Machine which holds up very well against the classic big box EHX Deluxe Memory Man.
Always great to see boards from all over the world! Thanks, Thomas, for sending in your board! If you haven’t sent in your board, don’t delay! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
