Here is a great Bill Frisell effects pedal video illustrating how Bill achieves some of his signature guitar sounds. Frisell is reknowned for his idiosyncratic signature sound and Jazz playing but, his style is in fact more highly eclectic. Bill uses a wide range of effects to enhance his playing, but, he is equally at home using a bare minimum of pedals, or none at all. Listen to more of Bill Frisell’s amazing music catalogue here.




The guitar effects pedals that Bill features in this video are as follows:
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

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