    Saw Mars Volta the other night and only realised that Juan uses more pedals live than Omar. :eek:

    Here is Slash's rig. In all his interviews about it, he calls it a simple rig. I get the feeling he shows up to a gig, plugs in, and let the tech's do everything else.

    Too bad I don't like his tone... at all. Its grating, really.

    considering how basic his tone sounds, he uses a shit loud of stuff. He could get the same results just by using maybe 2 amps and a couple of pedals

    To each his own, I guess... it's always sounded way too dry, and nasaly thin to me (which I guess, was the perfect compliment to Axl's voice :ugh:), unlike the glassy goodness that comes in at 1:17 on this song:

    Different tones for different purposes, I like both but Slash's is a lot more versatile.

    Well, think about how much effect usage is in Mars Volta songs for the 2nd guitar? I did a cover of Eriatarka in my last gigging band, and I played the effects-lines.. It was basically 5 minutes of massive delay.

    Joe Satriani's most recent Chickenfoot rig:

    Shows the prototype pedal that would become the Ice 9 Overdrive.

    :lol: That's true. Funny enough, on their last tour, Paul Hojinos was no longer with the band. It was just Omar on guitar and they played Eriatarka... it was still amazing.

    New Megadeth rig

    That is indeed AxeFXes for both Chris and Dave. Power amps are in there, but aren't used, no cabs or anything, all running direct.

    I don't think Dave dialed in his old rig, in the video when he talked about the GSP1101 he didn't even know what it was, I'm pretty sure he leaves that up to someone else.

    ...good point, to be honest I can't imagine him getting on with much more than Bass/Mid/Treble/Gain.
