Santiago relies upon a relatively modest yet rather intriguing array of pedals to achieve a wide variety of tones and effects. These include a Fulltone OCD overdrive, a Way Huge Swollen Pickle, a Voodoo Lab Micro Vibe, a Menatone Pleasure Trem 5000 tremolo, a Maxon AD9 analog delay, a Moogerfooger MF-108M (controlled by a Roland EV-5 expression pedal), an Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail, an Electro-Harmonix PitchFork, a DOD FX-17 Wah-Volume and a MXR ten-band EQ.more
I use the MXR-EQ for pushing the signal in front of the preamp, like a tubescreamer but with more extreme settings. 10 bands are pretty much what’s needed if you don’t have a parametric device. The 2nd output lets me abuse it as a splitter. But be aware of its blue LEDs. So bright you need sunglasses to work with it. Otherwise good value.
