Bill Frisell - Pedalboard Demonstration 2012




The Fretboard Journal magazine took a trip to Bill Frisell's Seattle home to talk pedals. As anyone who has seen Frisell perform over the years can attest, this is a musician who loves guitars, effects and mixing it up. Here, he puts his current setup through the paces for us. It's an up-close look at one of the guitar world's most important innovators.

Frisell is quick to admit that his pedal board changes often -- new finds are always being tried out. He's also done plenty of recordings and live dates with no effects at all.

Effects pedals heard in this video:
Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2
Boss TU-2
Ibanez TS-9 Tube Screamer (stock)
TC Electronics Hall of Fame
Electro-Harmonix Freeze
Line 6 DL4
Wright Sounds Fuzz Stang

Shown, but not used in the video:
Electro-Harmonix Micro POG
Way Huge Electronics Ring Worm
Aguilar Audiolex
Z.Vex Ringtone

Frisell's custom Jazzmaster was built by J.W. Black, with custom art by Terry Turrell. The amp is a vintage Gibson GA-18.
