Tosin Abasi: The Ultimate "Clean Amp" Pedal Platform Pedalboard



It was our honor and privilege to partner with Tosin Abasi to build him his first "Professional-Grade" pedalboard rig. Up until this time, Tosin had put rigs together on the fly, in a ├╝ber DIY-fashion during rehearsals and soundchecks, or, just used an AxeFX for ease of use and to bypass the headaches of an unreliable pedalboard into a tube amp. Now, with the help of the Rig Doctor, Tosin can use his favorite analog overdrive and distortion pedals, along with his Strymon digital delay and reverb to get his his signature tone through his beloved Morgan SW tube amp with total dependability.
