Rig Rundown: Deerhoof

Despite their penchant for crazy sounds, avant-indie heroes John Dieterich and Ed Rodríguez aren't boutique snobs. Here they walk us through the tools they use to create their cerebral catharsis.

On the floor, Dieterich runs a rather modest collection of pedals. Naturally, he eschews wireless systems and plugs directly into a TC Electronic PolyTune Mini. From there it runs into a One Control A/B box that splits the signal into two loops. The A side contains a Fairfield Circuitry Barbershop, Shoe Savior Machine, DOD Looking Glass Overdrive, and an EarthQuaker Devices Disaster Transport SR before going into the Pearce. The B side goes to an EarthQuaker Bit Commander, Whilrwind IMP2 DI and then to the house PA. The whole thing is powered by a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2+.
