WATCH: The pedalboard that evokes nostalgia

If you’re a sucker for all things retro and cinematic, this pedalboard feature will pique your interest.

With the sounds of the ’80s and ’90s in mind, Eirik from Living Room Gear Demos channels “vintage nostalgia” by combining his knowledge of guitar pedals with his passion for film to create a movie masterpiece paired with retro-inspired guitar pieces.

In order to achieve this, Eirik carefully reverse-engineered the feeling of nostalgia with a slew of guitar pedals. Using the Pedalboard Medium as the base for his build, he starts by incorporating the Line 6 HX Stomp for that lush and expansive reverb. The effect before that is a pedal that he claims to be the perfect choice to counter perfection. Enter the SolidGoldFX NU-33 – a vinyl emulation pedal. Taking it one step further, a tape preamp from Anasounds was also added to the mix. It turns out that saturation is one of the key qualities of vintage sound.

According to Eirik, guitar synth pedals like the BOSS SY-200 are at times misunderstood. He shifts the focus from playing lead to creating arpeggiator and pad-like sounds to suit the theme of this project, and at the same time, treating the BOSS SY-200 like an old Roland Juno-60. As the final icing on the cake, Eirik also adds a faithful recreation of said Roland Juno-60’s chorus module – the TC Electronic JUNE-60.

Jump to 4:37 and witness cinematic perfection. Alternatively, you can watch the video in full to listen to Eirik’s entire thought process. You don’t want to miss out on this.
