Pedal Line Friday :: Bret D.

Bret D.

We want a list of pedals (manufacturer/model), routing would be great, and, most importantly, why you use those particular pedals. Always a work in progress, here's a recent configuration.

- Korg PitchBlack. Put the tuner with the cleanest signal. Also, great for a kill switch!

Next, the dirt:

- Catalinbread Naga Viper

- Catalinbread Karma Suture (Ge)

I really like the sound of the Naga Treble Booster hitting the Karma Suture. Pleasant, dirty, but different.

- JHS Pack Rat

When natural sounding overdrive isn't enough, you want something that with teeth.

- JHS Muffaletta

And sometimes you need something wooly.

- JHS: If you can't pick which Rat or Big Muff Pi (or Tube Screamer--Bonsai, not pictured because I don't have one yet) you want or can't afford it, why not have them all? I think of them as libraries.

- Hilbish Designs Deathimizer

Like dropping your tone into a vat of boiling bacon fat--sizzles and spits. Hey, I won it from you guys!

Finally, modulation and space:

- Catalinbread EchoRec

I can never get the right echo sound with a regular delay the way I can with this pedal. On the down side, no tap tempo.

- Keeley DynoMyRoto

If you're going to chorus, chorus like you mean it, the way they did in the '80s.

- Walrus Audio Slo

Dialed back, it's a sense of space, but with something extra you can't quite place. Dialed &up and with sustain activated, it's a pad to make your noodling cosmic.

- Catalinbread Talisman

A nice, smooth, studio style plate. The reverb on my amp is virtually unnoticeable--I think the tube that drives it needs replacement.

- Catalinbread Zero Point

Flerb, for extra whooshiness. Also, the manual nature means you can inject the whoosh right where you want it for maximum impact.

All on a Gator Extra Large aluminum board (on sale!) with a lot of added fastener tape, powered by a Fender Engine Room 12 mounted underneath (with 12 outputs & each one at 500mA!). Bret D.

Submit Your Pedal Line!

About a million years ago, I used to run a blog called EffectsBay. On that blog, the most popular feature I would run was Pedal Line Friday. This is where readers of the site would send pics of their pedalboard and a short (sometimes long) write-up of routing and thoughts about specific pedals and the reasoning why they liked it, etc. Readers. loved this. It was a great way to learn about new applications or techniques regarding pedals. It also brought a little inspiration and knowledge about pedals you were not familiar with. It also brought a great sense of community - people like sharing and absorbing cool things, right? It was a super popular feature, and I loved putting them together.

All you have to do is send a pic of your pedalboard (or pedal line - it doesn't have to be on a board) along with a short (or long) write-up of the board. We want a list of pedals (manufacturer/model), routing would be great, and, most importantly, why you use those particular pedals. Also, this is a great way to promote your band or musical project - include that information as well!

You can send the pic and the write-up to pedalline@rattlesnakecables.com.

Rattlesnake cables ended my search for the best suit at cables. I use a right angle, up and around the strap lock. Plus I sit in a recliner. So every other brand would start shorting out. All of them. I still have the first rattlesnake cable I purchased. And it still works flawlessly.

Ordered 2 speaker cables and was notified on production and shipping. Fast turnaround and shipping. Cables are excellent in construction and appearance. Even more important the signal quality was much improved over the temporary generic cables they replaced. Guitar cables will be next!

GET A RATTLESNAKE! THEY DON’T BITE! After years of getting what I considered some of the best guitars and amps I realized that what I had in the way of cables was, well basically junk. Luckily I discovered Rattlesnake Cables. In addition to being a visual treat, colors and patterns, the great β€œsnakehead β€œ concept to protect your guitar finish, the cables provided a solid, stable connection. Gone were the snaps and crackles of thin, poorly soldered connections and loose jacks. Acoustic, electric, tube amp and solid state all sounded better to me and provided confidence in my equipment. I replace my head to cab cable with a Rattlesnake cable made specifically for that application, again no more concerns about connections. I am working on replacing pedalboard jumpers with Rattlesnake connections. Multiple lengths available to solve board design issues. These folks are nice to work with. Packaging is well though out, a nice cable tie include, a cable bag and cool sticker. The hand written thank you note on a small pad, to me, exemplifies their commitment to customer service. It’s a small American company that does things right. Cool T-shirts too!
