Never-Ending Board, Chuck Stevens
Stevens’ signal chain goes from a TC PolyTune to an ISP G-String Decimator, Snarling Dogs Mold Spore wah, and Mars Effects Manipulator (programmable true bypass looper) out to the right channel of two 50-watt Trace Elliot Bonnevilles (one 4x10 set to Tweed preamp and one 1x12 set to Plexi preamp) and the left channel of a Hiwatt Custom 50 (with bridged inputs) driving a 2x12 closed back and a 2x10 open-back cab. Loop 1 of the Manipulator is a modified ProCo Rat into a Rocktron Banshee. Loop 2 is a DigiTech Whammy feeding a Snarling Dogs Erogenous Moan volume pedal and an Electro-Harmonix POG2. Loop 3 (which is on most of the time) is a Keeley Compressor feeding a Fulltone GT500 and a Fulltone Mini-Deja’Vibe 2. Loop 4 is a Zoom Tri Metal feeding a WMD Geiger Counter with a Control Voltage pedal. Loop 5 is an MXR Phase 100 routed to an MXR Flanger (18-volt). Loop 6 (always on) is the ISP G-String Decimator in gate function. Loop 7 is a Tortuga Effects Martini feeding an Electro-Harmonix Stereo Pulsar set to slow pan right/left. Loop 8 is two BBE Two-Timers (with the right channel set no higher than 330 ms, and the left channel set to a quick slapback echo).
