I definitely used that Systech Harmonic Energizer just because it has that tone from a lot of Frank Zappa’s trippy, psychedelic solos. It’s basically this overdrive fuzz with a super-duper-filter-tweaker kind of control that gives you all sorts of grit but also a wah-wah tone, too. Also, we used an Ampeg Scrambler and a Roland Funny Cat, which is like taking a compressor, an early fuzz box and an auto wah…well it’s just like its name, Funny Cat. We use it quite a bit on the record. When you think you hear a wah-wah, it’s really just the Funny Cat.more
"Righto, bass pedals: a slightly simpler affair.. One Fuzzrocious Rat Tail with 2nd Distortion mod as primary weapon, an Ampeg Scrambler (reissue) as a secondary weapon, and a Tech21 Killer Wail Wah for support fire. Honourable mention to the MI Audio Blues Pro distortion pedal; served me well over the years but now in retirement with the Rat Tail stepping in."more
