Snowy White

Guitars
White has had his main guitar, a 1957 Les Paul Goldtop, for 40 years. He says it's a "fantastic guitar, stays in tune, sings on every fret." Despite being a vintage instrument, White treats it like any workhorse guitar: If something needs changing, he'll do it. The guitar has been rewired, refretted, and has new tuners.

Amps
White uses a pair of newer Vox AC30s with Master Volume. He sets them for a little bit of breakup on the amp itself, but still with a fairly clean tone. He mostly uses one combo, but kicks in a second AC30 for solos and powerful rhythm work.

Pedals
White uses an Ernie Ball VP JR, Boss BD-3 Blues Driver for most of his distortion, a Boss OD-3 Overdrive in conjunction with his Boss GE-7 Graphic Equalizer to dial in what they call "Snowy's Note," a long-sustaining section of a solo that's tuned to the sweet spot based on the room each night, a Boss RT-20 Rotary Ensemble used as a chorus pedal to add thickness to solos, and a Line 6 M9 Stompbox Modeler used for echos and chorus. Also on the board is a Boss TU-2 Tuner and Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus power supply. Off to the side of the board is a Boss PSM-5 power supply and master switch pedal (like all players in the show have), which is used to control the rackmounted delays.
