Swooshing Pink Floyd vibes, kerranging Sleep chugs, and mutating mellow Motorpsycho tones symbiotically swirl in this guitar duo’s growing setups.
Pedal pleasures for Michael Risberg start with the Tapestry Audio Bloomery volume pedal. Then the tone coloring happens with a Teese RMC3 wah, ZVEX Distortron (used as a preamp to excite the low-output single-coils), an Electronic Orange Moon-Vibe (that can footswitch between chorus and vibe modes), a Hudson Electronics Broadcast for lighter distortion, a Creepy Fingers Sound Distorter (modernized interpretation of a German Schaller fuzz), a Basic Audio Scarab Deluxe, a Strymon El Capistan, and a Strymon Flint. And the last box in the chain is a mysterious grey unit that is a Fender Twin-style preamp based on the AB763 circuit. And Michael’s T-style is kept in check with a TC Electronic PolyTune 2 Mini. Pedals that have been used on tour or on Elder albums, but currently on the bench are the EarthQuaker Devices Arapnoid, Source Audio Ventris, DigiTech Whammy, Fjord Fuzz GJALLARHORN, Montreal Assembly Count to Five, Park Fuzz Sound, EQD Westwood, Basic Audio Futureman, and Gamechanger Audio Plasma Pedal.
