Swooshing Pink Floyd vibes, kerranging Sleep chugs, and mutating mellow Motorpsycho tones symbiotically swirl in this guitar duo’s growing setups.
The first thing in Nick DiSalvo’s signal chain after the guitar is the Gamechanger Audio Plus pedal (not shown) that is used to sustain a droning note or chord like at the open of “The Falling Veil.” The Plus feeds a Benson Preamp acts like a separate channel on the amp that gives Nick increased grit and gain. Then he has two full-foot pedals—a Lehle Mono Volume pedal and a Dunlop MC404 CAE Wah. Next in line is a diabolical duo of Black Arts Toneworks Coven and Stomp Under Foot Ram’s Head ’75. And the final batch of pedals currently on his board belong in the weird and wild category as it includes a Moog MF-103 12-Stage Phaser, Empress Echosystem, Meris Polymoon, and Empress Reverb. Nick’s Dunable is kept in step with a TC Electronic PolyTune 2 Mini.
