Rig Rundown - Black Label Society's Nick Catanese

July 14, 2009
PG's Joe Coffey is On Location in Chicago, IL, where he catches up with Black Label Society's guitarist, Nick Catanese. In this video segment, we talk all things gear, Nick's beliefs on effects and his big move from Washburn to PRS. Recently, Nick has started using PRS guitars and later this year they'll be coming out with his signature model that will feature a double-cutaway, a Floyd Rose trem and EMG pickups. For amps, in BLS he uses Marshall heads and cabs from Zakk Wylde's Wall of Doom and for his own project Speed X he uses Fuchs Viper 100 heads and Electro Voice cabinets. For effects, he uses his signature Fuchs distortion pedal, the Noxious, a Dunlop Rotovibe, BOSS Stereo Chorus, Dunlop wah wah and Morley Bad Horsey.
