Show & Tell is where we get artists to tell us about a piece of gear that they cherish and use as a part of their live or studio setup. This month we chat to Joshua Travis, guitarist for Emmure.
What piece of equipment do you have to show us today?
This piece is called the CabClone by Mesa Boogie.
How did you come across this particular item?
A buddy of mine, Joe from Within The Ruins, put me onto the device, and I had to have it immediately.
What is it that you like about it so much?
The device allows me to be able to mic up my Mesa rig like normal, but also run a direct signal to front of house as well.
How do you use it and how has it shaped the way you write music?
Having three different voicing options comes in very handy to get a lot of separation in sound. For instance, my cab tone is very bright with a lot of mid-range, but the CabClone setting I use is extremely dark with a lot of bottom end. Having the phase adjustments and separate level control right on board is a major key.
Tell us a little about what you have coming up.
We are currently on tour with Stick To Your Guns across the States, with a couple stops in Canada. Next we will be overseas again and I’m very excited about that.
Emmure will perform as part of Good Things Festival next month. Look At Yourself is out now via Nuclear Blast/Sharptone Records.
