It’s no surprise The Music Zoo staff is made up of gearheads, but none quite like Mr. Jordan Usatch, head of our posting team and mastermind behind the ultrasonic lead guitar of post-hardcore band “Husbandry”. His gear-obsession is pretty evident at first glance of his live setup, sporting everything from boutique-style pedals and amps to aluminum guitars, it’s nothing short of a conversation-starter. So much so that Gear Gods came through to get the full scoop on it for their “Rigged” series! Watch the video above and leave a comment for our Music Zoo fam!

Jordan’s rocking a pretty neat pedal set-up, including some boutique-quality stuff from smaller builders like Wilson Effects. For its size, his pedalboard is super cleanly put together, which satisfies my OCD. Thanks for looking out, man.
He’s running all of this into a Verellen Skyhammer. Ben Verellen’s gotta be making some of the sexiest looking amps out there, right? I’ve always been really into the natural wood vibe, and Verellen amps look like they’d be right at home inside a hunting lodge (or on top of an equally woodsy Emperor cabinet). Jordan’s ditches the effects loop and substitutes KT77 tubes instead of EL34s for a little more “bawls.” He’s mostly using an Electrical Guitar Company fiddle with a Squier Bass VI making the occasional appearance when necessary.
