Video: DIY Effect Pedal Board Demo

This one’s for the gear-heads, like me*. We’re back from the East Coast and have some downtime between shows, so I figure it’s high time for a demonstration of all the wacky effect pedals we tour with. This is the actual rig used at a bunch of shows this year.

EDIT: the VW pedal is a Phase 45, not 90. Slip of the tongue.

I learned how to build these effects with the help of various online forums, like:

The Tiny Giant amp circuit board is from http://www.musicpcb.com.

The intro and outro music is from our most pedal-heavy song, “Slow Boat to China,” from our brand new album, Tortoise.

You can also check out all the amazing art Laura's been working on, including her biggest drawings yet, as well as Paul's occasional cartoon nonsense!

SOLD OUT! For a limited time you can get these one-off pedals (each one is painted differently by Paul) for the measly sum of $60, but that price is going up soon, so act now.

Buy them off the stage at our shows or get in touch with the builder himself to get one delivered!
