Just when you thought the board couldn’t get bigger, Dave went and got a satellite…
“It’s funny, at first I had this small pedalboard,” he chuckles pointing at an area half the size of the current board. “Then I got this one made [points to the other half], and that was perfect… for a while. And then it was like, Uh oh, now I have this [E-HX] HOG, and the volume pedal and a few others… so I had to break out and have this satellite pedalboard, which is kind of ridiculous.”
One of those new pedals is a Crybaby wah – a first for Minus The Bear.
“I never had a wah until [current album] Omni,” Dave explains. “But it seemed like a lot of the songs, such as the solo on Summer Angel, really suited the wah stuff. I really enjoy playing the bridge part of Into The Mirror with the wah on too.”
