Show Me Your Pedalboard: Alessandro

Pedals And Effects comin' at ya with a Show Me Your Pedalboard entry. Today's feature comes from Alessandro all the way from Rome, Italy! Alessando plays bass in a post punk band and his rig is definitely reflective of that, let's take a look:

Things kick off into a Korg Pitchblack tuner then straight into a Diamond BCP1 Bass Compressor. The Pitchblack is a super reliable tuner that's also easy to see in a dark gig setting, the strobe on it looks like the car from Night Rider too. Right after the bass compressor is a Tech 21 VT Bass followed by a Source Audio Soundblox 2 OFD bass. The Soundblox is where Alessandro gets his dirt, left switch is fuzz, right switch is overdrive. That's cool to have all in one, but you'll be better off with dedicated pedals for both. Wren and Cuff makes an awesome Sovtek clone, and you can't go wrong with an Earthquaker Devices Speaker Cranker for overdrive.

After the dirt Alessandro's board continues into an EBS DPhaser into a Maxon FL-301 Flanger. Maxon makes some awesome stuff, they were the original makers of the Tube Screamer that Ibanez popularized. After the Flanger is a Tech 21 Bass Boost Chorus into a Zoom MS-100BT. Again, like the Soundblox earlier - you'll benefit more from individual modulation pedals, I know it's adding more weight and size to your board but you'll benefit in sound. If you want to stick to combo pedals give the Line 6 M9 a try.

Alessandro's board rounds out into a BBE Sonic Stomp - used as a boost, and a Tech 21 Sansamp BDDI to send his signal straight into the venues PA.
