^ I believe he's recently ditched the CE-5 for an MXR Stereo Chorus. Same application though.
^ and now, of course, he's ditched the Stereo Chorus for the Black Label Chorus.
Can anyone take this apart for me? I'm guessing that I'm looking at a Boss Delay and Chorus (white and blue boxes), but does anyone know what the Ibanez pedal is, and what the function of the Dime Distortion is in the rig? Ta.
^ Thanks, I was guessing he was boosting the Mesa, so that would make perfect sense. Still wondering about the dime pedal though.
The white boss pedal above looks like a Boss Tuner/Power supply.
I'd guess the Ibanez pedal is a delay or something.
I don't think you'd need a distortion/od pedal with a Mesa Recto.
Its an NS2 noise suppressor. You can see the logo if you enlarge the pic, despite the crunchy JPEG quality.
Done some more hunting...it's a Boss Chorus, Ibanez Delay and Boss Noise Suppressor as far as I can now work out. Still can't work out why the Dime pedal is there though...
*Variant wants an Airplane flanger badly
MORE!!! 'Cause I've not really spit much onto the thread I started to begin with... and, well because Peter Frampton fucking kicks all our collective asses.
Also, as you can see in the following video, I wholeheartedly identify with his ultra-simple setup. We share the love for straight, unmodified guitar tone:
And I don't stop...
^those guys must be sponsored by BOSS!!!!
gary holts' mostly homebrew electronic pedals... simple.

(the guy in the picture is not Matt, I assume its his tech)
His rig is Godly!
I wish there was a better picture of the rack. I have a UK guitarist magazine with an article about him and his rig, but I can't seem to find it at the moment.
I love this thread
No pics, but Marcus from Blind Guardian
The updated update
Due to public demand here is a more detailed look on my setup for the upcoming tour.
Guitars: Well, big surprise, I will have Les Pauls with me I am not sure yet which ones I will use for this tour, but there will be for sure some of my "high gain" models with EMG pickups (my two fave guitars belong to those ones, my main Custom and my Light Burst Standard Premium Plus), I am also thinking about the one in which I can split the pickups into single coils (nice option for clean sounds) and one that has a Fishman Powerbridge, a Piezo pickup that can deliver some really cool acustic sounds. On top of my usual load of Les Pauls I am thinking about a Flying V in the moment. My very first electric guitar has been a Flying V back then, and somehow I would like to play one again, the only question is if I will still get along with the shape, after playing only Les Pauls for the last 12-15 years... well, I will see, I called Gibson the other day and ordered one, as soon as it arrives I will give it a try ;-)
Amps: My main amp is (and always will be) my Mesa Boogie Tripple Rectifier, best amp that has ever been built ;-) As a backup I will take my Mesa Boogie Triaxis, firing up a Mesa Boogie 2:90 poweramp, both amps will run through Mesa Boogie Rectocabs (I am using the bigger versions). The third amp that I will take with me is the ultimate backup, an Axe-FX Ultra. It is a high-end Pre-Amp/Effects Processor (some people would even call it a modeling amp) that doesn't need anything else, I can plug in my guitar, choose an amp simulation, add the effects that I need, dial in my perferred cabinet and microphone and just plug it straight into the PA. Like this I always have a working backup in case anything goes wrong with my main setup, and this thing even sounds absolutely great, perfect for a backup.
Effects: I am not using much here, there is a Rocktron Intellifex that is in the loops of the Rectifier and the Triaxis, for my rhythm sound there are absolutely no effects anyway (besides the Rocktrons Hush), for clean, lead and effect sounds there are the usual suspects like a bit of chorus, delay or reverb. In case the Intellifex should die I still have the Axe-FX Ultra as a backup, this could also be used as a pure Fx processor, without all the amp/cab/mic stuff.
And this is almost it, the only other things are my wireless system, a midiswitcher (so I can change the channels in my Rectifier via my Rocktron Midimate floorboard) and a Furman Powerconditioner, put everything into a rack, add some strings and my pick of destiny (a Dugain stone pick) and you have my touring setup.
This pic was taken in Lubbock, TX... I talked for a bit with the tech about his rig. They said they were trying the Axes out and he was liking them so far. ...I did the audio (brought the VerTec rig) for that place... it was WAY too much PA for that damn place! Testament was LOUD AS FUCK! Haha.
May they RIP!
Some crazy stuff here: the guy is tech for Vai and Zappa.
