Rig Rundown: Thrice’s Dustin Kensrue and Teppei Teranishi
Experimenting with odd-time signatures and unusual tunings isn’t the only reason for the band’s unique mojo—a few eye-popping guitars, classic amps, and a pile of pedals are also required for their brand of melodic post-hardcore.
The control center of Kensrue’s Pedaltrain Classic Pro is an FAMC Liquid Foot+ Mini, which works with a pair of Voodoo Lab Hex units to switch between pedals. The choices available are plentiful and include a trio of Strymon pedals (a TimeLine, a Mobius, and a BigSky), JHS Mini Foot and Muffuletta fuzzes, a Walrus Audio Deep Six, a Line 6 M5, an Electro-Harmonix POG2, and a pair of custom Mojo Hand Fx “Kensrue” Rook overdrives. A TC Electronic PolyTune 2 Noir aids with tuning.
