Gran Bel Fisher pedals

Gran Bel Fisher from Sabina, Ohio took the stage at Urban Artifact on January 7, 2016. I did not catch the guitar player’s name, but I did catch a glimpse of his tidy pedal board.

Here’s the second pedal board from Cincinnati’s The High Waters, from their gig at Urban Artifact on December 15, 2015.

I’m pretty sure this one has the most distinct number of manufacturers on one board that I’ve seen so far.

When the High Waters dropped by Urban Artifact on Dec 15, 2015, they brought some fantastic groovy sounds with them. James and Chris both switched and played bass and guitar, so they each had an enviable pedal rig to drool over.

Here’s the first one:

Boss FRV-1 63 Fender Reverb Pedal
Mooer MSE1 Lofi Machine Guitar Single Effect
Xotic EP Booster Mini EQ Effect Pedal
Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi Guitar Effects Pedal
