Inspired by the lutherie skills of Brian May and the tonal essence of Eric Johnson, this self-proclaimed “classic-folk rocker” shows off her acoustic and electric setups.
Arielle runs separate pedalboards for her acoustic and electric rigs. Both were built by Dave Philips at L.A. Sound Design. Her acoustic board features a custom interface, L.R. Baggs Session DI, Electro-Harmonix MEL9, Neo Instruments Mini Vent II, TC Electronic Flashback, and a TC Electronic Hall of Fame Reverb (not pictured). The interface sets up a wet/dry/wet feed to FOH. Arielle can turn the wet pedals on or off with the interface and the L.R. Baggs DI sends a dry signal to FOH. A Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 supplies the juice.
On Arielle’s electric board she runs two chains, one for clean tones and the other for lead. The clean chain starts with a Dunlop Cry Baby wah, a Harman Compressor, a TC Electronic Stereo Chorus+ Pitch Modulator + Flanger, and a Catalinbread Echorec. For her lead tones it splits after the wah and heads to a Crispy Cream Treble Booster, an Analog Man Beano Boost, a Fulltone OCD, a J. Rockett Animal, an MXR Smart Gate, a Boss volume pedal, and a TC Electronic Flashback Delay. The two chains share the volume and wah. A Voodoo Labs Pedal Power 2 Plus 2 and a Pedal Power ISO 5 supplies the juice.
