Behind The Noises of Kevin Shields

Loveless kerap disebut sebagai sebuah album alternative yang unik dan orisinil oleh para kritikus musik. Lanskap musik shoegazing diterjemahkan Kevin Shields bersama My Bloody Valentine melalui album ini, dan menginspirasi banyak band lainnya.

Kevin Shields
Rahasia dibalik tekstur keriuhan dan berisik yang berlapis dan artistik dari My Bloody Valentine, hanya ada di benak seorang pria baya bernama Kevin Shields. Begitu banyak band yang berusaha mengulik dan terinspirasi dari inovasinya, mulai dari Asobi Seksu, Nine Inch Nails, hingga U2 sekalipun (on their Achtung Baby's album).

Nah, selamat menikmati parade poto-poto rigs dan effect gear dari Kevin Shields di atas panggung yang terdokumentasikan pada saat reuni MBV pada tiga tahun lalu. Semoga bermanfaat dan bisa menjadi inspirasi bagi para gitaris band shoegaze di tanah air :P

Berhubung pusing dengan rumitnya senjata amunisi Kevin Shields, berikut ter-paste-kan ulasan singkat dari blog Guitar Player, yang juga sama-sama pusing menelaah efek-efek milik pria paruh baya berdarah Irlandia ini... *sigh

Besides the pedals on the floor, there were lots of pedals on top of his rack.
A more or less complete list of Kevin’s pedals (on teh floor) and rack units is:
Volume Pedal
Roger Mayer Stone Fuzz
Digitech Whammy
RMC Wah?
Effector 13 Rocket (not Micro Pog as previously stated here. It looked liek one from teh distance, the white knobs were misleading…)
Effector 13 Truly Beautiful Disaster
MG That’s Echo Folks
Snarling Dogs Mold Spore
Roger Mayer Vision Octavia
Pete Cornish Custom? NG-2?
Ernie Ball Volume
Boss TU-2 Tuner
Mike Hill Services Midi Foot Controller w/ External Mute Switch (for rack effects)
Alesis MidiVerb II
Yamaha GEP-50
Yamaha SPX-900
Yamaha SPX-90
Alesis MidiVerb II
Mike Hill Services Midi Effect Preset boxes x5
Now…the following AMAZING pics show ALL the FX pedals Kevin Shields brought on tour, including a good look at his rack – God knows if he actually used all of them, but here we go!

A few things we can see:
Ibanez AD-9 Delay (could be Maxon, too); Z-Vex Seek Wah II; Danelectro Back Talk Reverse Delay pedal; Boss PN-2; Boss GE-7 Equalizer; Electro Harmonix Big Muff; Coloursound Fuzz; Boss SD-1; Boss Delay (DD-3?); Boss DD-20 Giga Delay; Coloursound Tremolo; Z-vex Super Hard-On; Z-Vex Tremolo Probe; Dunlop Rotovibe; Tech 21 SansAmp; Electro Harmonix Q-Tron
…and many, many more, that we can’t find out what they are…and we are too tired to find out now!

Some pedals he uses: an old Vox Tonebender; Homebrew Power Screamer Overdrive; Boss DD-6; Boss TW-1 ‘T-Wah’; Digitech JamMan; Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah; modded Ibanez AD-9 Delay, probably by Keeley (“The stock foot switch operates as a feedback/self oscillation control! Hold the footswitch down and your notes will go into feedback! Just as if you turned the repeat control all the way up, this is great for sustaining notes or adding a bit of craziness to you music, music, music, music, music!”); proving that he’s not a pedal snob, Kevin uses an Electro-Harmonix  Little Big Muff; other Boss pedals include the Dynamic Filter, Acoustic Simulator, two GE-7 Equalizers, another DD-6 Delay, the famed PN-2 Tremolo/Pan and a PS-5 Super Shifter; A few Roger Meyer and Peter Cornish custom pedals; a Z-Vex Box Of Rock; MXR M-109 Graphic EQ and a few other boutique pedals… 
4) Setlist, MIDI Foot controller and A/B Switch. That’s how he controls his beast…teh controler has a “Mike Hill Services” label on it. (
