Bass tone of the day: 1983 Squier JV Jazz into a pair of ‘77 Fender Silverface Twins. One going to the 2x15″, the other going to the 4x12″ stack, both being pushed with Mintone ‘More’ pedals. And a D.I’d Sansamp VT for luck.
Theresa plugs her Mustang into her Boss TU-2 tuner. From there, it hits her JHS Sweet Tea Overdrive, JHS PRestige buffered boost, Electro-Harmonix Pitch Fork and an EHX Small Stone Nano. Next is an EarthQuaker Devices Dispatch Master, Catalinbread Adineko, TC Electronic Hall of Fame Reverb, and a Boss DD-5 Digital Delay which sends the signal back to the amp.
One of Theresa’s most prized instruments is a bass made for her by Stella Mozgawa’s father. The neck, tuners, bridge, and pickup came from some ‘60s-era Fender P basses. The source of the body remains a mystery. Theresa keeps it strung with flatwounds.
So this is the first time in a while I had each part of my rig together in one nice clean picture.
I’m really happy with my pedalboard at the moment short of the lack of reverb. Everything sounds great into the bassman.
That Peavey cabinet is by far one of the better 2x12 cabinets I’ve ever owned. It handles low end better and absolutely nothing rattles on it ever. Even huge swells with tons of delay and massive fuzz. So solid. I’m planning on dropping much better speakers into it in the nearish future. Not 100% sure what I’ll drop in there yet, but I have some ideas.
I’m really loving the Soul Food into the Musket right now for a tight high gain tone. Seriously brings the riffage and probably the best high gain tone I’ve ever gotten into the front end of a clean amp. Very happy with that.
This rig is solid. I’m still contemplating a second delay, a reverb, another drive, and maybe even a second modulation pedal of some kind.
After loosing her pedalboard while on tour in Iceland, and then quickly crafting together a replacement board, Emily took the best of both setups for her current cache of stomps. The signal starts with a Boss TU-2 tuner and then goes into an Ibanez TS8808DX Tube Screamer Overdrive Pro Deluxe, Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Nano, TC Electronic Corona, Electro-Harmonix Neo Clone Nano, Strymon El Capistan, and a Boss DD-7. A Voodoo Lab Pedal Power sits underneath the board.
