Josh Smith Monster Pedal Board

Recommended Posts

Josh Smith is a monster guitarist.  I highly doubt that anyone who has seen him play would argue with that.  @Dan Brown and I, and our wives, have had the pleasure of seeing him in concert the last three years on the Keeping the Blues Alive at Sea Cruise.  And actually saw him multiple times on each of those cruises.

And he is a self described "Gear Junkie".  Here he is describing his gear in an interview with The Captain from the Anderton's.  This is not just another "Here is my pedal board video".  Very early in the interview one realizes passion for his tone and his immense knowledge.  And every pedal he talks about is an education.  A lot of what he is saying is way over my head. 

Just as an example, his discussion of  headroom and why he doesn't use a compressor is fascinating.  The only problem is that after every pedal he talks about I want to go shopping! 

It's a long video, about 45 minutes.  But well worth the time investment,  IMHO.  Especially if you are at that stage, session 15 or so, where you are getting concerned about tone.



Of course, I had to insert this from the cruise. 😎 Josh Smith, left, me in the center and Kirk Fletcher.

Ps. I dont doubt his skill one iota. I does make me wonder though. With all this modifying the guitar signal, is this really guitar music or electronica?
