Built To Spill: Jim Roth Pedalboard

Yesterday I wrote about Built to Spill and the show they played this week here in Missoula. I also did a rundown of Brett Netson’s pedalboard, who was one of the three guitarists on stage that night, churning up the tonal waters that the audience was happily drowning in. On the far side of the stage from Brett was his counterpart Jim Roth, trading licks and effortlessly recreating the songs we have come to love from our Boise...

Built to Spill: Brett Netson’s Pedalboard

Built to Spill rolled into our medium sized town of Missoula earlier this week. Surprisingly enough, they played a small venue which allowed everyone to get up close to the band as they belted out a bunch of hits as well as some new music from their latest album (sadly no Twin Falls). They delivered an impressive performance complete with a driving encore that ended in a 10 minute explosion of swirling guitars amidst a cacophony of...

Along the way, he’s incorporated a tightly-knit crew of revolving, talented...

Faith No More | Jon Hudson | Pedalboard

Faith No More is on the road again, 26 years after their top ten hit ‘Epic’, stormed the radio in a rap/punk melange of half-finished lyrics and adolescent insights. When you read that you might be thinking that I wasn’t a fan, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. The guttural wail of lead singer Mike Patton wove perfectly into the rhythmic cacophony that Faith No More put forth in the form of music....

Mother Mother Pedalboards

Mother Mother is a band that originally hailed from Quadra Island off the coast of Vancouver, British Columbia – which, as it happens, is now the place that they are calling home. Although most commonly associated in print as an indie rock band, they are so much more than that genre. I should admit before I go any further, that I’m a huge fan of this Canadian group of artists consisting of Ryan Guldemond on guitar and...

Ride Pedalboard Overview

A week ago I saw a picture of some pedalboards from the band Ride posted on Gear Talk. I wanted to take a few moments and look at them a little closer. What’s fun about getting pictures of pedalboards like this is you can use Pedal Finder to identify something that may be a bit blurry that you can’t quite make out. You do this by using the ‘Search by Look’ feature. For instance, on the pedalboard below the blue...
