MountainCity:: Dave’s Two Favorite Pedals

Dave’s two favorite pedals currently in use — today, even!

Happy New Year! From MountainCity’s Dave and Tara Powers

(Denver, CO)  Here is a little backstage information for MountainCity fans on what the band uses in creating their fresh, modern folk-pop (with a twist of country) sound. Dave and Tara are in the recording studio today just north north of Denver, and you can bet Dave’s favorite Strymon pedals are there, too! Here are the two he uses regularly right now:

Strymon’s Timeline

 Dave is an enthusiastic champion for his Strymon pedals.

“Strymon is a brand that carries some serious weight in the guitar pedal realm,” he told us.  “Gear nuts far and wide ooh and aah over their pedals.”

Dave admits he must be a nut too, because he does the same thing. “Guitar nerds like me make audible noises of delight when a Strymon pedal is on a pedal-board.”

Here is how the Strymon website describes the blueSky Reverberator

Lush, Majestic Reverbs. Insane DSP Power.

The philosophy behind our blueSky Reverberator is simple—take a ridiculously powerful SHARC DSP and dedicate it to doing one thing only: producing the most lush, majestic and stunning reverbs ever. Many hours and sleepless nights in the Strymon sound design labs were devoted to developing the complex reverb algorithms found inside blueSky. We squeezed every last drop of processing power available.

Dave says that nearly every time he plays a live concert, at least one musician will approach him asking what kind of reverb and delay he uses. He says he smiles and points to his blueSky Reverberator and Timeline Multidimensional Delay pedal.

“These pedals are amazing and I highly recommend them to all guitarists,” Dave says. “I promise, they will take your tone to the next level.”

Here is how the Strymon website explains the Timeline

Inspiration Machine.

When we decided to create a studio-class stereo delay effects pedal, we knew we must go well beyond what has been done in the past—in sound quality, sonic flexibility, hardware design, and processing power. We spent months locked up in the Strymon sound design labs dreaming up the most spacious, lush, creative, and tweakable delay effects ever heard. It was a monumental task—a relentless study of delays and their nuances, and a continuous pursuit of innovative and musically inspirational sounds. Utilizing a ridiculously powerful SHARC DSP, every drop of processing power is harnessed.

Dave Powers of MountainCity highly recommends Strymon!

“I am blown away by the privilege of being a part of the Strymon Family of Artists,” Dave told us. “Check out their phenomenal artistry. It’s uncompromisingly inspiring!”
