You can’t see Minus The Bear without being blown away by Dave’s massive pedalboard, which he dubs “The Monstrosity”. And where else can we start but that bank of four Line 6 DL-4s?
“This is my main delay pedal,” Dave says, pointing at the top right DL-4. “The other three are the sample pedals, which I use for songs that have two or three different samples in them. I prefer to do it live and make it sound more human and genuine, and have that live quality to it.
“The thing that I really love about these is the one-shot thing [Check out the intro to Knights to see what he means] – a lot of pedals don’t have that re-triggering aspect. Plus you can play samples in double-time and half-time, stuff like that. Now that we have so many songs that incorporate the one-shot thing, I need to have a pedal that has that function.”
