That Pedal Show – Joey Landreth Special: New Pedalboard, Performances & More!

Published on Feb 3, 2017

We are absolutely delighted to bring you this show with our vey special guest, Joey Landreth.
We first met Joey in 2016 having stumbled across his band at the time, The Brothers Landreth and their spectacularly good album, Let It Lie.
For 2017 Joey is embarking on a solo career with his debut release, Whiskey. We just don’t have enough good words to say about the man – please check out his online world here:

In today’s show, we take a quick run through Joey’s new pedalboard (built by Dan of course). It was finished about an hour before we started shooting, so these are Joey’s first impressions with it.
Joey is playing his Collings I-35 LC, Suhr Classic Pro and Waterloo WL-14 guitars. He even treats us to a couple of songs (recorded at the other end of That Pedal Shed!).

Gear For Joey’s Performances at 26:44 & 45:56
We’re using an AKG C414XL mic for the vocals (and spill from the guitar amps!)
Joey’s pedalboard goes into a Fender Super Reverb mic’d with Sennheiser e906.
Everything recorded straight into a Zoom H6, then mixed in Logic, plus a little bit of plate reverb and compression plug-in.
