Pedal Boards

September 7, 2017

Some folks have asked about my pedalboard and what I use. 


I basically have 3 systems each has thir purpose.  They are as follows. 

#1 the most.  Its main component is the Grace Design AliX that dose the Gain, EQ, Bost, Effects loop, DI out to get the signal I use s Saturn Works A/B Switcher one signal is wireless A and the other is s cable B into a one line out. This goes to the Grace AliX I do the Gain structure hear and eq the lows and tame 110Hz on High I give 1-2db bost.   I run a tuner the DÁDDARÍO pedal tuner from line out. My effects loop has the KoKKo Space Reverb and Digitech Jam Man Solo XT Looper.  I use this on my 3 giging guitars the Andy Culpepper Blanca with Lr Baggs Dual Source,  JDZ Blanca with LR Baggs and a Cordoba GKSL with Fishman Dual Source.

**Update** 9/7/17 

I wanted to have the Boss AD-2 for gigs without a Pedalboard and to use with Behringer Europort MPA40BT.  So I put the Fishman Aura Nylon on.


#2 Grace BiX to a KoKKo Reverb and a TC Electronic Ditto Looper.  Smaller board and less control but great sound.  Easier to travel with.  I do at time move the Line 6 Wirless over to this pedal board too.  I use this on my 3 giging guitars the Andy Culpepper Blanca with Lr Baggs Dual Source, JDZ Blanca with LR Baggs and a Cordoba 
#3 Boss AD-2 Pedal I use it for locations where there’s not easy access to AC power and for smaller events like weddings, cocktail hour on the beach.   I generally use the pedal with the Behringer Europort MPA40BT battery powered PA speaker.  Generally the Cordoba GKSL is the guitar I use. 

#4 Boss AD-10 When the new AD-10 becomes available I will try the new digital Preamp out.

Fishman Aura Sounded Great

May 7, 2012

This weekend we played our first time live with the Fishman Matrix pickup and Aura Spectrum DI that Dave Petillo installed on my DeVoe Blanca. It sounded very good and I received many complements. From the DI it went to the Presonus Studio Live 16.0.2 mixer then QSC K8 and Mackie Thump speakers.

Release 12 o’clock, Output Gain +10.  Then back to the Mackie Pro FX8 and the DBX 131s is between the line out on Mackie and input of the QSC K
