For me it was...
Hardwire RV-7 reverb
all into Blues Junior.
MXR microamp boost, OCD & a DD7
Call was for a silent stage so took a DI from my Marshall DSL emulated out.
Nice comments on the tone. P90’s for every number.
None, as usual.
any chance you'd post your set list and then which pedals where? I'm just curious... where was the gig (bar, house party etc)
The brake pedal.
Simple set up - The tele with an old Dunlop wah/volume pedal, an even older ProCo Rat into a vox ac15vr
I stepped on a small pillow getting off the couch. Does that count?
Happy New Year!
Spark Boost mini
Muza M-Effects (vibrato/tremolo)
Muza M-Ambience (reverb/delay)
Sonicake echo (always on)
Donner EQ (always on)
Danelectro mini EQ (for solo boost)
Guitars: Gibson Flying V RI/ American Standard Strat
Amp: Bassman RI
Pedals: Boss Tuner/Joyo Flanger/Pro Co Rat/Boss DD3 Delay
All my boutique pedals stayed in the case...I'm finding simple is better these days. The Rat is great with the Flying V...such screaming rock tones. and the Joyo is a great flanger..40 bucks well spent.
Glad to! No set list as such. Singing at a local church. Kind of an open mike affair featuring Southern/country gospel music. I used the Hot Cake + RV-7 on plate mode for my clean tones. Added tremolo for some slower songs like "Amazing Grace" and "God on the Mountain". Used the Rat dry for an overdriven sound on "My God is Real". My style/tone is from the classic country/rockabilly/rock camp. My amp was a Blues Junior.
Guitar: Tele of course.
A Catalinbread Formula 55 and a CSW Violet Muff. I think I angered a squirrel maybe. There were no other witnesses.
Tuesday night... what were they thinking???
I was working, so none for me. But I have a JHS Prestige, a Nux Horseman, a Joyo d-Seed delay and a Wally looper. I use them all pretty regularly. My simplest board ever. Though I would like to pick up a Tone City Tremble tremolo and maybe a Shim-verb.
I used a Way Huge Aqua Puss for all of both sets, a Boss TR-2 tremolo for one song, and an MXR EQ pedal as a booster. I had my new Keeley Red Dirt OD but I never ended up using it.
Sat in with a big n loud - put together jam band. I used my LP traditional. The pedals I clicked on were pretty meat & potatoes: the standard crybaby, poly tuner, TS Mini, OCD and DL4.
TS with a touch of delay was the solo tone winner into my (non verb) 58 Ampeg Jet that was cooking and out of clean headroom.
The other guitar and keys had a lot of dark n muddy swirling and mutrony sillyness going on, so I played with as straight and bright a tone as I could. My wife said I sounded great and cut though the muck, so happy new year to me.
I've been puttering around with a bit of Santana lately and so last night was spent almost entirely on one of two teles going back and forth comparing the sounds they provide.
The only pedals used were an XP clean boost into an SD-1 and for a brief bit on one a phase 90 then just a touch of reverb and into the daw it went. Sounded mostly like these bits I recorded the other day.
And these three other solo bits.
Also played through some Harrison and Springsteen stuff I like of which there are covers on SC from a bit ago.. Didn't record anything new though so..
Old man noises abound.
I had a dep gig with a function band on NYE and had to put something together to cover lots of different sounds.
My usual gig is silent theater stages for which I use a HX Stomp direct to FOH with in ear monitoring which works very nicely but, the monitoring needs to be very good to pull this off and I couldn't rely on that for this gig.
The only amp I currently own is an old Sessionette 75 combo....a nice sounding amp but not very versatile without a pedal. Solution was to use the amp modelling and fx of the Stomp into the fx return of the amp thereby using only the power section and the Celestion speaker.
Took a bit of time setting up my sounds at home but the results were certainly worth it. In 45 years of gigging that was one of the best sounds I've ever had, everything from clean Fender Twin to full on plexi. I spent the whole gig wearing a silly grin on my face!
No pedals. I wasn't even plugged in. Just noodling on my tele. It's loud enough to practice by itself.
Gas, brake and clutch. And in bed before midnight. A usual New Years.
D'Angelico Excel SS w. mini hums> GK3 pickup > GR30 synth (guitar out) > Digitech Vocalist Live 3 > my VibroDeluxe Reverb (71 DR w. 2x10 JBLs, 6L6 powered)= no tone change pedals= glorious clean sound.
The pedals on my TREK bike.....
