As a songwriter, Aguilar co-wrote “Rockstar,” which appeared on Fefe Dobson's album Joy from 2010. The song was also heard on American Idol and the CW Television Network’s Hellcats. Aguilar’s love affair with TC started after learning that it is the brand Guthrie Govan depends on to get his impressive tones.
For her drive sound, she chose the MojoMojo Overdrive: “I have been into drive pedals of all kinds over the years and all of the other drive pedals I had all seemed to kill the bottom end. I can get a super silky tone with the MojoMojo and not only does it not kill the bottom end, it is not over-compressed and can still stand alone in a live mix.“
“I love the voicing switch on the MojoMojo. It feels so good when I pick. It is very responsive, and it is silky smooth. I can switch between two voicings that are very unique vintage drive sounds that keep all of the frequencies that I don't want to lose.”
Aguilar needs her delay pedal to cover a lot of ground and chose the Nova Delay for this challenging task. “It is probably the best stand-alone delay pedal on the market. I can't think of another delay pedal that size that can do everything the Nova can. Plus, it sounds so organic and smooth and it doesn't take anything away from your tone or color the sound in any way, that makes it feel awkward or overbearing.”
