His signal chain goes something like this: TC Electronic PolyTune, TSVG Best Coast Signature Fluzzy (based on the old Ibanez Standard Fuzz), to a custom A/B looper built by American Loopers. It has an Electro-Harmonix Nano POG and a Mr. Black Eterna Gold in Loop 1. The second loop has the Bigfoot F.X. Magnavibe and Catalinbread Valcoder. Bruno’s “gnarly” Forever Fuzz was given to him by Nels Cline. Then a Strymon Tap favorite switch triggers the Strymon Deco’s tape chorus simulation, because there are three different effects out of that one pedal: chorus mode, slapback tape delay, and tape saturation. Next is a Mi-Fi Electronics custom effect with two pedals in one housing: the Psych Byke fuzz and Fuzz Wall. Bruno uses a Noise Clamp with those effects. The MI Audio Super Crunch Box is Bruno’s main distortion, which he uses 75 percent of the set. The board is rounded out by a Catalinbread Zero Point, TSVG Hard Stuff, Strymon El Capistan, Catalinbread Talisman, and a Line 6 DL4 (not pictured).more
Polyphonic Octave Generator Pedal with Octave Up, Sub Octave, Dry Control, and Compact Housing
This is next in the chain after my comp. I love octave pedals. They add a whole new dimension to your playing when they're used right. A basic setting that I use with this pedal is I usually have the dry signal all the way up and the octave up at around 2 o'clock and the sub octave at around 10 o'clock. I keep my original signal prominent while having enough octave up to add sparkle to the tone and just enough sub octave to beef it up. I recently had a mod done on this by Matthews effects, so now I essentially have two presets on this thing. Sometimes I want to be able to pull of a Whammy octave up kind of thing, so on the second preset, I have the octave up dimed and the dry and sub knobs completely off. Highly recommend this and the mod by Matthews Effects (you can get one pre-modded of Matthews' website) if you wanna explore different flavors to your tone.
Though it doesn't sound exactly as its big brother, EHX says that it has an improved algorithm compared to the Micro POG, I just think that it sounds different), it seems to be a better option for over populated pedalboards due to its practical size.
