We took a trip to Bill Frisell's Seattle home to talk pedals. As anyone who has seen Frisell perform over the years can attest, this is a musician who loves guitars, effects and mixing it up. Here, he puts his current setup through the paces for us. It's an up-close look at one of the guitar world's most important innovators.
Frisell is quick to admit that his pedal board changes often -- new finds are always being tried out. He's also done plenty of recordings and live dates with no effects at all.

Anybody is able to make music wherever, however and whenever he wants.
Camping Bus Records wants to motivate the world to participate on our project to get exactly this experience. Music accomplishes friends, because it results and lives of participation.
We want to free music from words like “profession”, terms that depend on expensive equipment, a band and a room for rehearsals. Music is supposed to be fun, it enables to get into contact with other people, break the barrier of language and thus communicate with people without words.
