Observe how the Atlanta-based rockers keep instruments in the family and take a pragmatic approach by hitting the road with everyman gear to morph between their brutal heavy riffs and beautiful, cinematic soundscapes.
And if you thought Robert’s board was untidy, check out the mileage (and filth) caked on Andy Hull’s minimal stomp station. (Talk about road-tested gear!) With no controls on his main Tele, dynamics are harnessed by way of the Ernie Ball Volume Pedal and the few noisemakers include a Boss BD-2 Blues Driver, EHX Holy Grail, and an Old Blood Noise Endeavors Procession. Like McDowell, everything is kept in line with the Boss TU-3 Chromatic Tuner while a Walrus Audio Aetos provides the juice.
