As you can see (above), Reb's pedalboard is constantly evolving as he adds and discards effects - it ain't the neatest thing you've ever seen! We asked Reb to describe his signal path: "My signal goes into very expensive Shure wireless units, which are the closest thing to being on a cable I have found. From there it goes into a Bradshaw router that helps with guitar changes. Then it goes to the pedalboard and out to the amps." "The pedalboard signal goes to a Cry Baby wah, a Boss Metal Zone distortion, a Danelectro echo for long delays when making weird noises, a Boss tuner and a Digitech Whammy pedal, which is in a loop because it messes with my signal in line. The whammy pedal is great with the long delay for weird noises. Then to a A/B box, which chooses between clean or dirty amps." "The clean line goes from the A/B box into a Guild Hartke bass head with a TC electronics multi effects unit for wetness. The bass head gives a very loud full clean sound. The other signal from the A/B box goes to the Marshall dirty heads." Reb has recently replaced the Boss Overdrive pedal seen on his Homegrown DVD with the Boss Metal Zone, as he felt that the overdrive pedal (used for solo boost) was taking away too much low end. Anyone who has heard Reb's live sound on the 2004 Whitesnake tour will agree he made the right choice!more
James began using a Digitech Whammy II in his live setup starting with the touring for MCIS. In an April 1996 interview with "Guitar School" magazine, Billy states "...there is a bunch of Whammy on the record. James uses a Whammy for his solo in Zero." James also said the following in a December 1995 interview with The Guitar Magazine (TGM) magazine "We tried to be a bit more obtuse, varied, and interesting. Like on XYU I was using a whammy pedal and I kept getting these intermittent breakups-like dang-dan-dan-dan-dang-dan-dan-dan-dang-fllllplplplplplsh! You just step on the pedal and it destroys the sound! It's like a tape machine going haywire or something."more
