From Belowempty.com's Dean gear archive:
When Guitar World Magazine asked "I don't hear too many effects on the [Talk Show] record", Dean answered: "There really weren't. On "John" and "Hello Hello" I used a Sixties Vox Wah. On "Hide" I used a Rotovibe, and for the solo on that, I used a Boss DS-1 distortion. On "Behind" I used a Boss Chorus."
Dean and Robert basically say that they don't need that many effects pedals, because "there's a beauty in plugging a certain guitar into a certain amp. It can have enough power to dictate a song." Dean says: "One of my favorite pairs for tracking that I used a lot on [Talk Show] and "Tiny Music..." is a '57 Les Paul TV Special that I played through a '66 Marshall 18-watt 2x10 combo. That amp loves P-90's. I used that combination on "Big Bang Baby" and "Everybody Loves My Car". Even though you're hearing different tones coming in and out, most of it was just one track of guitar instead of layers. I didn't do too much overdubbing. There may be a certain tone happening in the verse, the we'd introduce another tone in the track by using another guitar. Things stay a little less cluttered that way."
