A studio visit with the new gear-heavy improv/art-rock supergroup that includes Henry Kaiser, Andy West, and Anthony Pirog.

The first stop for Anthony Pirog’s signal—before his first pedalboard—is a ZVEX Fuzz Factory, followed by an Electro-Harmonix Mel 9 (often kept on a flute setting, to produce lovely tones with long decays), a red DigiTech Whammy for octave and pitch-change work, and a Diamond Compressor (equally good for clean tones and skronky improv).
