From EVH to Auerbach, Joe Perry, and Vai—37 Boards You''ll Drool Over.

Neon Tree's Chris Allen
"Allen uses a Cusack Pedal Board Tamer to keep his tonal path as streamlined as possible. He's arranged his effects switches song-specifically in order to minimize the tap dancing he was doing from song to song. He names his Ibanez TS808HW Hand-Wired Tube Screamer overdrive as a must-have, and his Malekko Trem and Vibrato and Z.Vex Fuzz Factory are also favorites. He's also using: Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 Plus, Electro-Harmonix Nano Holy Grail, MXR Power Amp, Keeley Compressor, Fulltone GT-500 Boost/Distortion, Strymon El Capistan dTape Echo, A/B amp switch to control his Laneys and Roland JC-120, HardWire CR-7 Stereo Chorus, and a TC Electronic poly-chromatic tuner."

Optimized for a balanced sound with plenty of booty on tap, Nordstrand Audio CatPups offer classically inspired tones for any platform into which you can fit them.

Hawaiian koa has been a favorite of boutique acoustic builders for ages. It has a cool tone personality, somewhere between rosewood and mahogany. It can be used for both back and sides and for top wood, and it’s beautiful. It’s also pretty expensive. The good news is that Taylor’s new 724ce is built with a breed of Koa that actually helps players save a few bucks.
