Rig Rundown: Brothers Osborne

Country music’s leading guitar tandem shows us how they mix vintage axes and boutique pedals with high-powered amps and just a little bit of digital magic.

TJ runs a Shure ULXD1 wireless from his guitar into his board through a Radial JDI. From there, it goes to a Boss TU-3 in bypass mode before hitting a Dunlop Mini Volume X and an Electro-Harmonix Switchblade+ that splits the signal. One side goes through the rest of the board while the other is routed to another JDI under the board for his acoustic tones. The board is rounded out with a Greer Lightspeed, JHS Twin Twelve (used to reduce the output signal when he runs his acoustic into the amp to achieve this very hip honky-tonk slapback acoustic sound), a Barber Electronics Gain Changer, an EHX Micro POG, Klon Centaur, Xotic EP Boost, and then a Line 6 DL4. It is mounted on a Pedaltrain Classic 1 and powered with a Truetone CS12.

“Like everything in life, there’s always more to be discovered,”George Benson writes in the liner notes to his new archival release, Dreams Do Come True: When George Benson Meets Robert Farnon. He’s talking about meeting Farnon—the arranger, conductor, and composer with credits alongside Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett, and Vera Lynn, among many others, plus a host of soundtracks—after Quincy Jones told the guitarist he was “the greatest arranger in all the world.”
