Add db_manufacturer taxonomy to post type URL WordPress

I have a taxonomy for manufacturers of guitar effects pedals:

register_taxonomy("db_manufacturers", array("db_pedals"), array("hierarchical" => true, "label" => "Manufacturers", "singular_label" => "Manufacturer", "rewrite" => array('slug' => 'pedals')));

I have a custom post type for guitar effects pedals:

add_action('init', 'db_pedals_register');

function db_pedals_register() {

$labels = array(
'name' => _x('Pedals', 'post type general name'),
'singular_name' => _x('Pedal', 'post type singular name'),
'add_new' => _x('Add Pedal', 'pedal'),
'add_new_item' => __('Add Pedal'),
'edit_item' => __('Edit Pedal'),
'new_item' => __('New Pedal'),
'view_item' => __('View Pedal'),
'search_items' => __('Search Pedals'),
'not_found' => __('Nothing found'),
'not_found_in_trash' => __('Nothing found in Trash'),
'parent_item_colon' => ''

$args = array(
'labels' => $labels,
'public' => true,
'publicly_queryable' => true,
'show_ui' => true,
'query_var' => true,
'rewrite' => array('hierarchical' => 'true', 'slug' => 'pedal', 'with_front' => 'true'),
'capability_type' => 'post',
'hierarchical' => false,
'menu_position' => 105,
'supports' => array('title','editor', 'thumbnail', 'excerpt', 'custom-fields', 'comments')

register_post_type( 'db_pedals' , $args );


How do I get the db_manufacturers taxonomy term in the permalink for a post in the db_pedals post type, so that the resulting URL is

I use it and got no problem.

Dan Davies comments:

I'd rather add something to my code rather than rely on the continued functionality of a plugin. If there are no other options then I'll use this. Thanks :)
