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

Stephen Carpenter (Deftones)
"Stephen Carpenter used this board for the Deftonesу 2010 tour in support of ""Diamond Eyes."" The board had been built recently by Bob Bradshaw of Custom Audio Electronics. Carpenter says he mostly uses the effects live, versus a simpler setup in the studio, to add an extra dimension and fun. On the board is an MXR Carbon Copy delay, CAE Boost/Line Driver, MXR Blue Box, MXR EVH Phase 90, MXR Micro Chorus, Z.Vex Ringtone, Z.Vex Lo-Fi Loop Junky, MXR Smart Gate, MXR Bass Octave Deluxe, TC Electronic PolyTune, ProTone Christian Olde Wolbers Signature Pre Amp, MXR EVH Flanger, Z.Vex SeekWah, Z.Vex Machine, and Z.Vex Fuzz Factory. Not pictured is a CAE controller for all of the effects, DigiTech Whammy, and volume pedal. "
