Form & Function

Built to be compact and efficient, the pedalboard was 
designed out of true necessity.  While only three distinctly 
different effects are being utilized, given the particular 
attention to not only their placement on the pedalboard, 
but also their arrangement within the guitar’s signal chain, 
the six guitar pedals allow the player the following 
options to be accessible:  

-  footswitch to amp  |  control between clean and 
overdriven channels, master boost control, master spring
reverb control, master on/off control of the effects loop

-  guitar to pedalboard to amp |  tuner to volume pedal, 
digital delay with external tap tempo to secondary reverb 
with modulation
