i don't like U2 but if i would i wouldn't still go see them in a big stadium... you might aswell buy the dvd or something...

i saw sunn o)) from a few metres away.. from the stage till the bar there could only stand 10 people behind eachother... it was not a good concert (musically) but that's what a concert should be.. in your face....

Oooh... I got you beat. When I saw them a few months back I was leaning on the 8x10 that they set up at the edge of the stage. It was actually a little difficult to breathe because my nostrils were fluttering so much.

they didn't have that.. but they did have 2 speakers on the floor in front of the stage.. it was indeed nostril fluttering loud... it was with earth that night..

they are playing again in belgium in april i think with boris... they said they'll have a special moogset then.... o'malley is also "in the picture" those days.. cause there's gonna be some art showed from him... southernlord is also the label that'll get special attention.. it's dominofestival.be ... still undecided if i should go though...

(phew, not bad typing for being drunk). good night and over....

Indeed.

Bono calls Edge, 'The Scientist'.

 

He uses a Fernandes Sustainer for 'With or Without You'.

 

Distortion on Boy and War albums courtesy of SD-1, and the heavier stuff is from a EH Big Muff.

 

The squalling solo in 'Until the End of the World' is thru a Boss OD-2R.

 

The Fuzz/Octave part in Elevation is a Scrambler.

 

'New York' features a Sobbat DB-1 -- listen from 2:10.

 

'Discotheque' uses a Lovetone Big Cheese.

 

He uses the MXR Dynacomp for slide soloing and general gallsy clean sounds.

 

For you BOSS mental heads. Guess what, he uses the FA-1 FET to boost his Strats without Distortion.

 

On the current Vertigo tour hi is using:

Ampeg Scrambler (you can bet it's original)

Big Muff

TS9

Sobbat Drive Breaker

DigiTech WH-1 Whammy

Dunlop wah.

 

and the rack...

Eventide Ultra-Harmonizer

Lexicon PCM Processor x2

TC 2290 Electronic Delays x2

Line 6 POD Pro x2

Line 6 DM4 Dist Modellers (custom made for him) x2

AMS S-DMX digital delay/sampler x2

Korg SDD3000 delay x2

Korg A3 multi-FX x2

 

And you can bet your boots there's more.

 

 

Oh and two AC30's - probably the most beat up pieces of {censored} in the world :D

 

 

PS. I've scabbed all that out of a Mag. August '05 issue of Guitarist.

Thought someone would be interested...

mr sage tell me more about the elevation fuzz. I love that tone he gets in the intro. It sounds like he is feeding a fuzz factory Zvex with a wah signal.


do u have a pic of his feet??
:D

 

He was working a Kay Fuzz that was rehoused in a Wah pedal on the intro...

crap you are right. I captured the pics from Vertigo Chicago live

 

Elevation song

bullet the blue sky, wah sound

I had to actually look for the DVD to check it out. I thought he was slamming a wah on elevation as well.

I stand corrected :)

Its a rack mounted Dunlop wah, I believe.

Nope.

 

I know he uses a 535q, so if he's using a wah that isn't the 535q, then I'm 98% sure it's going to be the wah on his PodProXT (well, one of his PodProXTs ;) ).
