Today’s Show Me Your Pedalboard entry comes from Luciano from Buenos Aires! Luciano’s board is suited for a local pop project, simple, but very versatile. Let’s take a look!
If you’re gonna submit your pedalboard to Pedals And Effects, don’t get your feet in the photo! Or at least rock some kicks! Anyways on to Luciano’s board. Kicking things off, Luciano goes straight into a TC Electronic Polytune 2 Mini. The Mini is the smaller version of the Polytune 2, just as accurate, and the LED is bright too for those sunny outdoor gigs. Up next is a Pedals And Effects 2016 favorite, the Digitech Whammy Ricochet. That there, is a magical pedal, setting how the intervals rise and fall is such a cool feature, you can do a lot of really interesting harmonies with it. Great pick Luciano.

Up next is an Electro-Harmonix Micro POG for more octave work followed by a BBE Soul Vibe Rotary Speaker emulator. That’s actually a pretty neat setup, the Soul Vibe after the POG get some cool organ sounds I’m sure. After the Soul Vibe is a Moog MF Drive for a boost (you could probably put this earlier in your chain). Luciano’s amp has got an effects loop which is covered by the other half of his board starting with the popular and reliable MXR Phase 90. After the Phase 90 is a TC Electronic Spark Mini Boost. Luciano’s board ends in a Strymon double team of the Timeline delay and Bigsky reverb.

You’ve got two boosts here Luciano, you only really need one. Depending on what kind of boost you need, I’d lean more towards keeping the Moog MF Drive that has more utility than just a boost too. That’s just my two cents though.
