In interview done with Music Radar, Bettencourt says. “The pedalboard that I’m using... well, I’m not much on effects anyway, and with Extreme it’s always about the real minimalistic approach. "Even though it’s a multi-effects unit, I use four patches for 90 percent of the songs. There’s just a plain one, then a little bit of chorus on another one for all the chorus hooks that I play on. "The third patch is like a solo boost - more for the volume and adding delay for the solo. The fourth is always a flanger. I just use that to go to for ‘vibe’ when I feel like that. That’s all that I really have on there. other than a few delay changes, that’s basically it.”more
I've never been much into guitar floor processors, but at certain point I needed to get something cool, functional and well sounding. All my searching and previous experience led to getting the GT-8. I recorded my whole first album with it, with no amps or additional plugins and stuff, except some minor EQ interventions. People still ask me how I got this kickass sound. I think it's enough said :)
