    A friend of mine recently played some live clips from The New Deal. Their bassist, Dan Kurtz gets some crazy tones. I know he used to use a Roland VBass but from the pictures I have found, he seems to be using a Fender Jazz with no mods that I can see so I am guessing that he is just using the effects on the vbass if he is still using it.

    Can anyone shed some light on his pedal board?

    I actually did load out for a new deal show about a year ago and he had a crazy rig. I'm talking like, 3 moogerfoogers including the lowpass filter and freqbox with many, many expression pedals, and then a couple other things. I mainly remember the moogers and should have taken pictures, wish i could remember more.

    My friends who were out in the crowd said he created a tone that "sounded like a chainsaw", im assuming that was the freqbox.

    yea see, when I saw it his pedalboard was a couple different sections, another moogerfooger and about 4 or 5 of the Moog ep-1 expression pedals

    I would download some shows from archive.org. The band allows taping and there are a lot of free recordings floating around. They are best live.

    I am certain you are correct about the expression pedals. Surely someone here has knowledge of this rig...

    The new deal experience was best live, but I still prefer 'this is live', their first show.

    They break it down nice and it can be obvious when they are communicating onstage about where to go next. great atmosphere.

    Their other records sound better to most people but it is awesome to hear what drum fx can do for a live performance. Spot the bassballs!
