Pro Pedalboards, Volume II
Jake Cinninger (Umphrey’s McGee)
Cinninger starts off his signal chain with the Steel Guitar Black Box, which knocks off any wooliness, into a Morley A/B box, Fuchs Plush Drive (set as a boost) and MXR Distortion III (in case he needs extra crunch). He sets up the rest of his pedalboard with a true-bypass switching strip. The first loop is the Morley Bad Horsie and a Fuchs Royal Plush Compressor, the second is the BBE Free Fuz, the third is a Radial Tonebone Classic, the fourth is a Marion Henry Electric Fuzz Bucket (he says it’s huge David Gilmour tones), fifth is Moog Moogerfooger Analog Delay, sixth is a Boss PS-5 Super Shifter, Source Audio Hot Hand Phaser/Flanger, and Guyatone MD-3 Micro Digital Delay (“My scary effects,” he says), seventh is a BBE Mind Bender Chorus, and eighth is the Boss PS-2 Phase Shifter.
