Guitarist Kevin Hunter Finds The Technology To Match His Talent With Eventide Stompboxes

“The TimeFactor and ModFactor offer so much flexibility in a compact pedal.�
– Kevin Hunter, guitarist.

Looking for the perfect combination of versatility, performance and portability, guitarist Kevin Hunter has added the Eventide TimeFactor and ModFactor stompboxes to his repertoire. Hunter, the former guitarist for Jive Records recording artist Lesley Roy, is currently working on a project with producer Hal Willner (Lou Reed, Lucinda Williams, Marianne Faithfull).

Hunter’s list of credits speaks to his versatility as a guitarist. He has worked with a variety of artists that includes Shania Twain, Janet Jackson, Al Jarreau and P. Diddy, to name a few. When discussing Hunter’s influences (which range from pop acts like the Beatles, Van Halen and Radiohead to less mainstream guitarists like Alan Holdsworth), the roots of this versatility become apparent, as does his need for a diverse array of effects. “I’ve gone through hundreds of different effects boxes and am always trying to stretch my boundaries,� Hunter said. “A friend of mine told me about the Eventide pedals and recommended I try them out. I have an Eventide H8000FW in my recording studio in Amsterdam, and I called up Eventide and they were able to answer all my questions.�

Hunter purchased a TimeFactor and a ModFactor—Eventide’s first two stompbox models. Small enough to fit on a pedalboard or in a gigbag, the TimeFactor and ModFactor are full-featured Eventide studio-quality stompboxes. The TimeFactor twin delay stompbox includes 10 stereo or dual mono delay effects, including Digital Delay, Vintage Delay, Tape Echo, Modulated Delay, Ducked Delay, Band Delay, Filter Pong, MultiTap Delay, Reverse Delay and Looper. The ModFactor modulation effects stompbox includes 25 of Eventide’s best modulation effects, including multiple versions of Phaser, Flanger, Chorus, PolyMod, TremoloPan, Undulator, Vibrato, Q-Wah, ModFilter and RingMod.

Since Hunter purchased the TimeFactor and ModFactor pedals, they have become a fixture in his rig, both in the studio and on the road. “I used to carry a lot of effects boxes around with me but now I just carry the two Eventide pedals with an expression pedal for each and a T Rex Dr. Swamp distortion pedal,� he said. “They offer so much flexibility in a compact pedal.�
