Pro Pedalboards 2010
James Valentine (Maroon 5)
Valentine’s board packs more tonal treats than one might expect from a pop act like Maroon 5. Valentine’s setup includes a Line 6 DL4 Delay Modeler, a Boss FV-500H Volume Pedal, a Dunlop Rotovibe, a Fulltone Full-Drive 2, a Dunlop Zakk Wylde Signature wah, a Fulltone Octvafuzz, a Keeley Katana Clean Boost, a Keeley True Bypass Looper, Providence Anadime Chorus 2, an EHX Micro POG 2, a Z.Vez Effects Octane 3, a Fulltone OCD, a Menatone Blue Collar Overdrive, and a Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor. For switchers and power supplies, Valentine has a Divided by 13 Switchazel, a Keeley Framptone A/B Amp Switcher, and three Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus boxes. Off the stage, Valentine’s tech Mike Buffa has an Ernie Ball Volume pedal that he controls to blend the mixture between Valentine’s two amp setup that includes a Matchless Independence 35 and a Divided by 13 RSA 23.
