GALLERY: Reader Pedalboards 2013, Part 1

We asked PG faithful to show us their pedalboards, and you delivered! In honor of our annual pedal blowout, we bring you 30 of our readers' personal stomping grounds.


This streamlined â??board comes to us fromGuayaquil, Ecuador. Luis Zuñigaâ??s signal chain starts with an EHX LPB-1 clone and into a Crybaby GCB-95 with some mods â??to make it friendlier with different styles and guitars,â?? he says. The Boss Ds-1 has the Keeley mod and "Marshall JCM800" mod together, then he has a DigiTech Whammy V, Green and Civil War Russian Hybrid Big Muff Clone, Boss Ch-1, â??My MXR Phase90 has a lot of mods to make it sound like a nice Uni-Vibe at faster settings and like a rich and warm phaser at slower ones,â?? Zuñiga shares. He also uses a Kay T1 tremolo clone with depth pot and rate switch added, a Dunlop DVP1 (Tuner out to a TC Electronic Polytune), Boss DD3 (with a tone switch for the repeats), MXR Carbon Copy, and a TC Electronic Ditto.

With their 26th release, Flight b741, the prog-rockers make it hard but highly rewarding for fans to keep up. Behind that drive lies a wealth of joy, camaraderie, and unwavering commitment to their art.

There’s a dangerous, pernicious myth, seemingly spread in perpetuity among fledgling artists and music fans alike, that when you’re a musician, inspiration—and therefore productivity—comes naturally. Making art is the opposite of work, and, conversely, we know what happens to Jack when there’s all work and no play. But what happens when the dimensions of work and play fuse together like time and space? What happens to Jack then? Well, behind such an instance of metaphysical reaction, undoubtedly, would be King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard.
