Boris is a fantastic band from Japan. I absolutely love the noisy textures this band is capable of. It’s incredible. They played in my home town a couple of years ago, and I so regret not going to the show (I plead I was out of town as my reason). A couple of years ago, I posted Wata’s board, so it was great to see Takeshi Ohtani’s board on Instagram.

Takeshi provides the super low end to the Boris sound, so I was super interested in his bass board set up. He plays a monster double neck (bass + guitar) combo with a very robust pedalboard. Based on the visible string gauge for the guitar.. could be strung up as baritone.

Here is the break down of pedals. I was not able to identify the specific Korg FK-* volume/wah pedal. It’s definitely older, but it could be modified. Not sure. Also, I was not able to ID the programmable looper he’s running. If anyone can help ID those specifically.. that would be great!
