Hi-Wes ! Do you use a pedal comp ? I've seen with the last tour (Porcupine Tree) a Nova System in your pedal board, it is for reverb, comp, delay (with your diamond) ?Your Fx are in a send fx ?Thanks!
The Nova and the Diamond, which has now been traded out for the Analog Man delay because it sounds as good as the Diamond and is smaller, are all in the effects loop of the Marshall. Everything else is in front. I have used a compressor; again, Analog Man Juicer and Mini Bi-Comp. But Steve uses his Carl Martin extensively and so I tend to not use one to provide a contrast in our clean tones. Instead of a compressor on my clean sound, I use a Vintage Fx Color Drive, which adds a real sparkle without compressing the sound. I call it the 'pretty box.'
Hello John. Saw you open for Marillion in chicago in 2004- loved your set. Q: I never saw an acoustic guitar like the one you use. Does having the strings spread out over the top make a difference?John Wesley responded on 01/05/2012 Next question
Thank you John for your kind advice so far. What parameter of the g-system is Steven steering with the second expression pedal?John Wesley responded on 01/05/2012
