Matt Smith’s setup might appear frail, but his disheveled ’82 SG and a half-powered JCM800 ignites a powder keg of melodic hardcore.

Matt Smith toured the world several times with nothing more than a boost pedal and tuner. He’s slowly incorporated more pedals and expanded to an actual pedalboard with the goal of fully representing Strike Anywhere’s recorded work in a live environment. Here you see the current evolution of his pedal playground with an Ernie Ball VP Jr Volume Pedal, Bogner Ecstasy Blue OD/Boost, JHS Muffuletta, Boss SH-1 Super Chorus, Walrus Audio ARP-87 Multi-Function Delay, and a MXR Phase 90. And a TC Electronic PolyTune keeps Smith’s guitars in check.
