    It's for when he does solo's. He props the guitar up on his knee and puts his foot on those metal boxes.

    :agreed: The mighty Alex Lifeson's control central! Mostly the Bradshaw unit to control rack stuffs, and the Taurus bass pedals... plus lots of babes throwing their underwear at Alex, because apparently there's a shortage of ladies at Rush concerts so he brought the Barbies in to complete the effect. :lol:

    I'm pretty sure those pedals are just for looks, all the tone comes from both his epic hair and epic-er beard :lol:

    This is a picture of Elias Viljanen's (from Sonata Arctica) pedal board. It might be from around late 2007/early 2008.
    When I saw SA live in October 07 he had 2 Mesa Boogie Roadster heads and one Boogie 4x12

    Not a cut 'n' paste job so follow the link:

    Criss Oliva's Setup

    One to thwart the solid-state haters. He had a wonderfully cold 'n' chunky rhythm sound and glassy lead tone that I wish I could cop with my setup. Can you believe two cascaded SD-1's! :eek: Yup, with a Chorus in front and into the clean, low gain input of a Marshall JCM series amplifier, then later Laney's. :agreed:

    Some words are in Finnish, so maybe that explains some of it.

    Soolo = lead

    Särö = distortion ( I think he uses that as his high gain rhythm channel)

    Borrowed quite a bit of the sound from Petrucci's rig but here's what I came up with for my touring rig and I am very happy with.

    I use a Sennheiser wireless rack unit. The receiver sends out to my Pedaltrain board.

    There I goes through a Morely Bad Horsie Wah, into an Ernie Ball stereo volume/pan pedal. The A out goes back to my rack and the B out goes to my Korg Pitch Black tuner. This lets me have the tuner on as I play, and If I want to go quiet I just hit the pan lever and I am tuning silently. On the board I have a Voodoo Labs Ground Controller. I live by this. Since I sing and am the sole guitar guy I needed simplification. This allows me to program each passage of a song as a single button push. Amp A clean, with Amp B slightly distorted, chorus on, tap, both amps in face peeling gain, no effects, tap, and so on. I lay the songs out as a bank per son, and then patches in sequential order as they appear in the song. This works really well for me.

    The return line from the board hits the Guitar tracking feature of mu noise canceller a ISP Technologies Decimator Pro Rack G Stereo Mod. I go buffered out to my Voodoo Labs GCX switchers (2 of them) where all the magic happens. I run the se effects in this chain each on its own switch in/out loop. Rocktron 300 series Compressor, Digitech Hyperphase, Keeley Mod Tube Screamer, MXR Zakk Wylde OD (this I add to the Tubes creamer on solos mostly), Eventide Mod Factor, and a Line 6 DL4 (delay modeler). These are all in front of both amps. My whole signal goes through an Aphex Aural Exciter for guitar and then I split the signal out to my two amps. Each line hits my Ebtech Hum Canceller rack unit, then the head’s input. I run a Mesa Mk IV short head and a Mesa Blackface Rack Dual Channel Dual Rectifier. The rec simply runs it’s loop through the ISP noise canceller. The Mk IV has a TC G Major 2 in it’s loop after the ISP Noise Canceller that gives me verbs, delays and boosts I use in soloing mostly, and harmonizers. The Mk IV is my soloing amp. Throw in 50 or so cables and a Rock Hard Cases 16 space rack case with shock mounted head compartments and there you have it.

    Live I am using all Ibanez Guitars, S7420 MIJ 7s and MIJ S540 and 470 6s. I love Mahogany. In the studio I also use my PRS’s and an old but very beloved Kramer Nightswan.

    I call it the poorer guys Petrucci rig. :shred:
