Today's Show Me Your Pedalboard entry comes from Enzo, all the way from Manchester, England! Enzo is rocking a very modest and road friendly board (homemade too!). His board has got all of the essentials as well as some pedals I don't think I've ever seen before. Enzo lays down the bass groove for a band called Federal Charm out in England. Enzo's board is no frills, no-nonsense, straight to the point. Let's dive in!
First things first, Enzo's board kicks off into a BOSS TU-3 tuner into a TC Electronics HyperGravity compressor. I can't say I've tried the HyperGravity compressor, but that is some great signal placement. Up next is the MXR bass overdrive into a Fuzzhugger Algal Bloom. Fuzzhuger is a boutique company based in the USA, and as the name implies they specialize in all sorts of fuzz pedals. According to Fuzzhugger, the Algal Bloom is a very "harmonically rich" fuzz pedal that can pull overdrive tones, to super crunchy, grimy, low end fuzz. The new Algal Bloom features multiple toggles that really unlock harsher, louder tones. It looks like controlled chaos in fuzz pedal form, the art nouveau style artwork on the pedals are amazing too. (It looks like they always switch up the artwork on the pedal, which is cool but also kind of confusing) Fuzzhugger makes multiple versions of the Algal Bloom, from simple and small to big and full of features. Very cool Enzo!
From the Fuzzhugger Enzo's board ends in a Jetter Gear Vibe univibe pedal. Jetter Gear is another small up and coming pedal company, I see that a lot of their stuff is unfortunately discontinued. The Vibe looks like a pretty interesting, and simple univibe too. Enzo the only thing I could recommend for your style is to consider an envelope filter (FwonkBeta by Mr. Black) or the DOD Meatbox (a favorite of mine, I know) to really rattle some subs. Consider a chorus after the overdrive too. It looks like you're killing it with your band so do what works for you, and you keep doing you.
