    Hopefully there are some fans of Ben's here who would be interested in this!
    Sounds to me like he tuned his low E down a whole octave for this

    Hi,

    Im a big fan of Monder and his music. Ive never met him, but Ive emailed with him for at least 5 years or so. I have no freaking idea about whats going on on that video, but I know Ben tunes his guitar down for some of his solo pieces, like Double Sun. I think he tunes the low strings (E, A, D) into a chord, and the three high strings (G, B, E) into a chord. Cant recall which chords though...

    I always get happy when I see posts about Monder here. One of the most underrated musicians around, who doesnt get the credit he deserves, but what the heck. He rocks...

    Best, Sandemose

    It's interesting, I noticed on Tony Malaby's 'Paloma Recio' cd that Ben definitely has some sort of pedal that does suboctave, because on one track he plays some typical crazy-fast Monder stuff that is doubled down the octave. Even so, I wouldn't put it past him to just tune down a bunch for a different effect.

    That's cool that you've corresponded with him. I wonder if he'd respond to this question if I emailed it to him, or if he'd just find it annoying...

    Ben's using an octave effect. Something like the Boss OC-3. You can hear it on more than just the low E string.

    Poparad - thanks for the definitive info!

    jazznan - thanks for the tip. I'm going to try to pick up a copy.

    Well, I wouldn't say it's definitive. I'm just guessing at what he's doing, but whatever actual device he's using, it's an octave effect.

    Haha yeah "definitive" might have been a stretch, but, in that issue of guitar player, he does mention that he occasionally uses an old Boss OC-2, so that sounds like the most likely answer.
