Ten of the most intriguing stomp stations from our last year of Rig Rundowns, including Warpaint, Mr. Big, J Mascis, the Fall of Troy, Eric Gales, Silversun Pickups' Nikki Monninger, and Primus' Larry LaLonde.
Mr. Big's Billy Sheehan
Bass legend Billy Sheehan sends the outputs of his Yamaha Attitude basses to an EBS Billy Sheehan Signature Drive Deluxe. In fact, Sheehan likes them so much that he runs two (one is an original version) at different settings. Both EBS pedals run into one channel of an Ashly CLX-52 Peak Compressor/Limiter (in his rack). The other channel is used on the insert of the Hartke LH1000 for the neck pickup. After each EBS pedal sits a Japan-made E.W.S. BMC (Bass Mid Control). Sheehan also uses an ISP Decimator Noise Reduction stomp, an EBS OctaBass, and an Electro-Harmonix POG. Last in line is a Rolls SX21 Tiny Two-Way Crossover to give his tone more overall clarity and punch. A Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus powers the whole board, which rests on top of his amps and is rarely touched.
