John 5 (Rob Zombie)
Famous for using Teles to create heavy-as-hell riffs with Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie, John 5 employs a minimal effects setup to help him in that quest. When we caught up with John on Rob Zombie’s winter 2009 tour, John was using a Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor, a Boss SD-1 Super OverDrive (“for solos”), a Boss CH-1 SuperChorus, and a wah. The Whirlwind Selector on the board allows John to switch between his wireless system and cables, depending upon which sounds better for the song.
