“My pedal board needs to be very reliable and versatile because I play in three different bands with completely different styles,” says Brazilian guitarist Robert Buchholtz. His signal path: ISP Decimator noise reduction, AMT Japanese Girl wah, Electro-Harmonix Talking Machine, Wampler Ego Compressor and Paisley overdrive, DigiTech HardWire Tube Overdrive, Dr. Scientist The Elements distortion, and an Electro-Harmonix LPB1 booster. From that point, the signal returns to his amplifier, with the following in the effect loop: DigiTech HardWire Tuner, Electro-Harmonix POG 2, Empress Phaser, DigiTech HardWire Stereo Chorus, Wampler Tape Echo 2, and a Muza FD900 Reverb. “I’m still missing a rotary pedal that I’m planning to purchase soon,” says Robert.
