Alex Lifeson's Rack
Lifeson uses three Palmer PDI-03 Speaker Simulators with his amps. He incorporates three Fractal Audio Axe-FX II units (one in his second rack). Lifeson says, "I'm using Fractal Audio Axe-FX IIs for just about all of the outboard effects. I have two delay patches and two other patches—one for reverb and one for reverb/pitch [changing]." Also on this rack is a TC Electronic 1210 Spatial Expander + Stereo Chorus/Flanger that he uses for phasing and flanging effects. Other effects include a Jim Dunlop Cry Baby Rack Module wah, two RJM Music Amp Gizmos, one RJM Music Effects Gizmo, a Mesa/Boogie High-Gain Amp Switcher, a Behringer MulTiGate ProXR550 Quad Expander/Gate, and a Furman AR-PRO AC line-voltage regulator.
