Were there specific pedals that kind of changed your life? My good friend Fred who plays in a killer band called Spirit Of... had lent me my first pedals I ever used live, The Holier Grail and a Boss DD6. The looping capability of the DD6 is how I wrote most of our original songs. It let me work out parts in real time. Reverb and Delay sometimes get a bad rep in the punk/garage community but honestly, they helped to show me that guitars can sound like more than just a guitar. Photo: Rachel Cabitt

Stuyedeyed Garage

Stuyedeyed is serving up brash and brazen rock music with a major vintage vibe. With fuzzy layers so thick you can practically wrap yourself up in them, the Brooklyn-based band delivers a serious ’70s guitar rock feel and loads of lo-fi goodness. Tell us about your first time with… a guitar pedal. How old were you and what did you stomp on? If I remember correctly I was 15 and my brother had just bought his first set of pedals. I don’t remember what the others were but I very distinctly remember being amazed by the Delta Lab delay. We ran everything through that little blue box, haha. 16

the deli Winter 2018

What do you have on your board these days? EarthQuaker Devices Hoof: My main squeeze and by far one of my favorite fuzz pedal. I use this for all my parts containing chords and lead notes. Death By Audio Interstellar Overdriver: I use this mostly as a boost for solos. Use this on some chord based parts on our new record. Dunlop Cry Baby: When you just need to fill space and pierce some eardrums, kick this lil jit on and keep it dimed. Way Huge Aqua Puss: My personal video game emulating, lush water toy haha. Use this thing all over the place. Interacts with my settings on the cathedral really well and helps to lift leads. Ross Phaser: The best gift I’ve ever received. Provides a nice added layer of movement that you can only really get with a full sounding phaser. BOSS Tremolo: Think yelling into a fan running full blast. EHX Cathedral: Screaming in a Church. TC Helicon Mic Mechanic: My vocal processor. From basements to Webster Hall, my vocals always having the same sound is a must.
