The German folk/reggae-rock group gives us a peek at their streamlined setup that combines vintage, offbeat axes with cutting-edge technology.

Antonio Greger’s board starts with a TC Electronic PolyTune 2 before going into an Xotic SP Compressor, Electro-Harmonix POG2, Strymon Big Sky, and a Radial SGI. The SGI keeps the signal to his Kemper strong. A Mission Engineering expression pedal is along for the ride to tweak tones in real time.

So, whether you're playing live or recording, time is everyone's responsibility, and you must develop your ability to play in the pocket.
