    I have a Boss DD-5 that I want to set for the song Wicked Game. When I used the pedal in the past I just blindly set it. What is the best way to set up the pedal for a song?

    James Calvin Wilsey used to post on the FDP a lot. He was often asked about Wicked Game, and he said it was just a Strat into a Twin Reverb with the amp reverb cranked up.

    I think they added a delay in the studio mix. I'm using a Strat into a 65 Princeton Reverb Reissue. It just seems like there is a little more on the tail end of the notes besides vibrato bar.

    The tails passed through a chorus: https://www.mixonline.com/recording/classic-tracks-chris-isaaks-wicked-game-365028

    I use modulated delays for this track - sorry, I don't remember the settings. :-/
