From classic-rock simplicity to indie-tweaker’s delight: Premier Guitar chronicles the most noteworthy stomp stations from last year’s Rig Rundowns.

Brad Whitford
For his side project with former Ted Nugent vocalist Derek St. Holmes, Aerosmith guitarist Brad Whitford uses a board that mixes some of the most revered of old- and new-school technologies. Two doors down from his original Klon Centaur from the mid ’90s is a state-of-the-art Eventide H9 digital powerhouse. He’s also got an AC-Booster Comp and Wah from Xotic Effects, a Catalinbread Pareidolia vibrato/tremolo, and a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 4x4.
