Pedalboard

The current guitar board sit rep:

Honestly, more straightforward than it looks.

Every sound I will need or have been known for, for any situation or setting.

GTR -> EHX Freeze -> Digitech Ricochet -> switcher*-> Line6 M9 (for basic delays and modulation) -> Veretex Boost (with expression pedal – not pictured – for volume control) -> Boss DD-8 (for glitching and miscellaneous weirdness) -> TC Electronics Wiretap (for recording parts of interest) -> Pigtronix Infinity 2 (looper) -> dry out to amp 1 (usually Marshall 8020) / loop out to volume pedal 2 – not pictured – -> Akai Headrush -> amp 2, monitors or direct boxes for FOH

* switcher settings: 1. Clean direct, 2. TC Hypergravity compressor -> Veretex Steel String drive -> Walrus Audio Slo reverb, 3. Catalinbread SFT overdrive, 4. Catalinbread Galileo overdrive, 5. Paul Trobetta Tornita (Kitchen Sink) fuzz

… and the orange box is a countdown timer/clock

March 25

It was 10 years ago today. The completion of Guitar Craft, the birth of the Guitar Circle(s) and the eve of one of the most personally significant and effecting concerts I have ever played, the repercussions of which I am still feeling today.

This Should Prove Interesting…

Things are shutting down left and right. Schools, non-essential businesses and pretty much any public event or gathering space are now closed, thanks to COVID-19. That means (what few) gigs I had are now cancelled and I am officially a studio rat. Here’s hoping I can be productive.
