A look at pedalboards used onstage by Deftones, Alice in Chains, Dave Matthews Band, 311, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Johnson, and many more

Brendon Small (Dethklok, Metalocalypse)
"When Dethklok opened for Mastodon in late 2009, Smallуs effects setup included a Boss GE-7 Graphic EQ, MXR Phase 90 to sharpen his live sound, a DigiTech Whammy, and Dunlop Dimebag Darrell Cry Baby from Hell wah. He explains his minimal use of effects, saying, рWhen you have crazy fast runs and another guitarist that youуre playing with, you pretty much have to just lock in and make sure your sounds are matching.с He uses a Rivera RM-1 footswitcher to engage preset pedal loops, which also emplys MIDI switching to control the Whammy."
