New Pedal Lineup

With my ’59 Bassman RI amp I’ve gone back to using a few pedals. Here’s what I have now:

Boss EQ7 – I use this only when I have a feedback issue. I prefer the tone without it.

MXR Carbon Copy Delay -- My guitar player bought a new TC Electronics Flashback delay (that thing seriously rocks) so I bought his MXR pedal. So far I’m just using it for single echo slap back, with the settings you see in the photo. It sounds good, really warm.

Line6 Relay G30 wireless receiver – I gave my old Line6 wireless to my girlfriend’s son. (He plays in a very good band in Phoenix.) Having been so happy with it I replaced it with a new Line6 digital wireless. Fantastic sound and performance. It is noiseless and simple. It has no companders like the analog wireless units (Samson, etc), so the sound is uncompressed and natural. It sounds exactly like a cable.

About the TC Electronics delay pedal… I haven’ tried it, but I am greatly impressed with the tone my guitar player gets with it. It is greasy wet without being splashy. Way different than he sounded with the MXR.
