That Pedal Show – Steven Wilson: 2017 Pedalboard, New Guitar, New Amp, New Sounds

Published on Sep 1, 2017

In this video Steven Wilson, acclaimed British rock artist joins Dan for a chat. We made this video the same week that Steven’s 2017 album To The Bone was released, having reached Number One on the UK Album Chart. Huge congratulations to everyone at Team Wilson!
Dan had also just finished a new pedalboard build for Steven’s upcoming world tour, that also includes a significant departure in his main guitar and amp choices. Dan goes through the new pedal choices and explains how he approached various solutions for the new rig.

Dan is using the amp's Red Box output into a Seymour Duncan Power Stage 170 power amplifier, then into a custom-made Zilla 2x10 cabinet with Celstion G10 Gold speakers.
