Here's the whole group:

Compare to my setup...

And then I purposefully look like the huge dork in the last group shot. I wonder if anyone can guess who the other members are! :3

Hmm, why would someone use TWO Ibanez Tube screamers? :) One looks like the TS9, and the other is a different type but, STILL :)

No idea who the members are!

Umm, the more a look the more it seems as they are BOTH TS9's. Elec, whats up with that? :)

The yellow Boss also appears to be an overdrive pedal, and the color of the large pedal in the second row suggest tubescreamerishness as well. Thank god for that noise gate! ;)

I think its Boss Line Selector actually :)

Man, I can't figure out who anyone is in that pic. :P

I am sure that Tech21 sounded amazing

People need to build their own tubescreamers, though I haven't had the time to finish off my own build.

The TS9 is a very transparent overdrive, and thusly makes a really good gain stack -- Two together can really give you a hard hitting tone, especially if mixed with the amp's tube drive.

Likewise, you can set both TS9's to different settings -- One mild, one hot, and then instead of having to bend over and adjust one pedal, you just have two pedals to control two different tones. Laziness. No adjusting knobs when you play.

Personally I have 2 Tubescreamer's on my board, but they're not both TS9's. One I built myself.

Anyways.

Guitarist #1's Setup:
Rocktron Short Timer (Top), Boss Overdrive OD-3, TS9. TS9, Boss LS-2 Line Selector, and the last pedal... I think it's a Korg Pitchblack tuner. Not sure to be entirely honest.

On the other hand, Elec's setup is pretty obvious and self explainatory. :)

I'll take a stab at who the other members are...

Guitar #1: Kaname (formerly from Gossip)
Guitar #2: Hideki
Drums: U-ya (from D'air)

i like elec's setup BETTER -- simple and in a live situation, all you need really need is a way to go from clean to distorted to "solo" (a slight boost + reverb).

Anything more and you're just making your life complicated! "Which one of these ten units is producing that buzz? Which one's power cord is crackling/broken? I dunno, let's delay the show half an hour while i fuckin' check!" :)

elec's setup is non-guitar.

Klisk said...

I find effect-less guitar tone pretty boring these days. Need to at least have some delay on your board or something.

That being said, for bass, I think Elec's setup is pretty perfect. Bass has always been about minimalism for me. Guitar is the opposite, heh.

i have no idea what any of you are talking about
