> As for my rig, it is pretty much all analog now—no MIDI, just pedals on the floor that I can swap out and reconfigure without having to call a scientist. I run two Bogner Ectasys. In front of the amps, I have an Xotic SP compressor, a Jam WaterFall pedal I use for a wide, Hendrix-y vibrato, a TC Electronic Flashback delay set for a fast slap, and a Strymon Lex rotary speaker simulator for getting cool, Beatles-y Leslie sounds when I’m playing with Ringo.more
"I’m not someone who has ever used or enjoyed a chorus pedal, but I was looking for something that simulated the sound of a Leslie rotary cabinet. The Waterfall fit the bill perfectly and gave me an approximation of that tremolo/rotary effect and more - a unique sounding effect unlike any other pedal I’ve heard! This pedal is great for lead guitar work, to add a far-out color to the sound. I’ve come to rely on it for use with my electric band but it's also found it great in the studio for situations where I want something a bit out of the ordinary… As with all of JAM’s pedals, the build quality is exceptional and the sound is great!

From my Jan Braathen Stratocaster I go into a fuzz—I have gone back to the Prescription Electronics fuzz. The chain goes from the fuzz into the Bogner Harlow booster/compressor, into a Dunlop Mini-Wah, then into a Boss OD-2 and an Empress overdrive. I go into the Jam multi-purpose true bypass box. It is a switcher made by Jam pedals in Greece that lets me switch on some loops with multiple effects and keep some noisy effects out of the signal path when they are not on. I keep the Alesis Bitrman in the loop because that effect tends to degrade the signal when it is off. Also in the Jam loops are an Electro Harmonix Super Ego and Jam Dan Comp Compressor. You can hear the Super Ego on “One and the Same Again,” on I.E., I have the compressor in the loop with the Super Ego to bring out the string noise, which I like. Also in the loop system are a Z.Vex Fuzz Factory, a Jam Waterfall Vibrato, and a Jam The Big Chill Tremolo. The signal goes into a Morley volume pedal, and then to two Eventide H9s controlled by the iPad. I have a vintage Jen fuzz [like a Vox Tonebender] that sounds great and is all over the new record, but the level is too uncontrollable to take out live.more
