PETALUMA, CA--The All-American Rejects are using Furman Power Factor Pro conditioners and SPB-8C pedal boards for sound on tour. To combat contaminated AC power and its effects during live performances, the All-American Rejects have chosen Furman Power Factor Pro conditioners. The conditioners are designed specifically for musicians and feature Clear Tone technology, which lowers the AC line impedance supplied by wall outlets, and linear filtering, which suppresses noise dramatically and consistently. This results in outstanding dynamics, harmonics, and clarity, qualities that are often stolen from amplifiers by substandard power.
"When playing multiple venues, we never really know how the amplifiers are going to sound once they are plugged into the provided AC outlets," said Tyson Ritter, vocalist and bassist for the band. "Sometimes we have to struggle with correcting buzzing sounds, or work at eliminating flat tones. But with the Furman products, we get a consistent, clear, and powerful sound. This is important to us, because we want to walk off the stage knowing our fans got every penny's worth."
Onstage, the band uses Furman's newly introduced SPB-8C pedal boards. Featuring a solid, robust construction, the SPB-8C is built to last and maintain optimum performance under abusive on-stage conditions. The durable pedal board consists of a rugged yet light Velcro?-covered polycarbonate platform with an extruded aluminum chassis, all protected by a durable hard-shell case with wheels and a retractable handle. This ensures secure, non-slip performance for effects boxes and pedals and easy transportation between gigs.
"The pedal board is really quite impressive," said Nick Wheeler, guitarist for the All-American Rejects. "Not only does it hold all my pedals, but they always remain securely in place, no matter how hard I stomp on them. Having a pedal come loose in the middle of a song can be a disaster."
