Board to Death Ep. 20 – Matt McJunkins (A Perfect Circle, The Beta Machine)

Uri Garcia

I think with pedals, it’s nice to have something that has character to it. Something unique that doesn’t already exist.
— Matt McJunkins

In this episode of Board to Death, Matt McJunkins shares his philosophy when it comes to using effects for different purposes, and what is sweet enough to be in his chain. Being on the road is hard enough; you don’t need janky do-dads injecting variables into your life.

As a touring musician with The Beta Machine and A Perfect Circle, Matt has found what works for effectively bridging the gap between inspiring creativity and practical reliability, show after show. Playing with many professional rock n' roll outfits such as Eagles of Death Metal, Puscifer, and Thirty Seconds to Mars has clearly allowed this Musician’s Institute graduate to know exactly what works for him. Check out his super-duper streamlined stomp box set up.
