MercyMe recently granted EquipBoard.com access to their touring gear during their 2017 Texas Takeover Tour. The pedalboard displayed here belongs to Barry Graul and while many of the pedals he uses are also used by fellow guitarist Mike, some equipment does differ from preference. One of these items is the Ibanez GE 9 graphic Equalizer.more
Pedalboard used in conjunction with Marshall: "My live ‘board is pretty simple - essentially just a tuner, an octave pedal, and a couple of subtle boost pedals. 90% of the core sound is from the guitar and amp, then a clean boost is used just to push the amp a bit harder into overdrive. I use the guitar volume for most of the tonal variations. Main pedals used are as follows: Free The Tone FINAL BOOSTER - Fantastic clean boost… the great thing is when set at zero and kicking it in there no tonal/level change whatsoever - it only adds to what’s already there. Has a nice natural sounding buffer in it too. Sonic Research ST-200 Tuner - Accurate and reliable strobe tuner that works great especially for the ‘half a step down’ tuning I use. Easy to see on dark stages too! T-Rex ALBERTA - Nice subtle tubescreamer type pedal, smoother and warmer sounding than the classic TS pedals. Normally just kicked in now and then with the Strat. T-Rex OCTAVIUS Octave pedal with switchable clean boost - This is great and is used mostly with the old cello slide guitar. The guitar has a really low output so the extra boost on here works perfectly to beef things back up. Voodoo Lab PEDAL POWER 2 PLUS - Silent, super reliable and efficient power supply! Brightonion Pedals TRUE BYPASS LOOPER - Any pedals that aren’t true bypass run through this, plus it keeps things nice and easy to switch on and off during a gig as every thing is at the front! Other pedals I use now and then: Klon Centaur, JHS Charlie Brown, Free The Tone Red Jasper, ZVEX Box Of Rock" -Aynsley Listermore
