Rig Rundown: Andy Timmons

For decades, Timmons has wowed fans with his versatility and musicality. Watch as he demonstrates how he gets studio-quality sounds onstage.

Because Timmons travels so much, it’s important to have a durable pedalboard that covers all his tones but weighs less than 50 pounds—case included. Timmons is a total cable guy and his signal flow starts with a Dunlop Cry Baby Wah before heading into the centerpiece of his board, a GigRig G2 switching system. Included in the loops of the G2 are a Sonic Research Turbo Tuner ST-200, Dunlop Volume X, Strymon TimeLine, Carl Martin Andy Timmons Compressor Limiter, GNI Analog Stereo Dual Chorus, a beat-up Ibanez TS-808 Tube Screamer, MXR Phase 90, and a JHS AT (Andy Timmons) Signature Channel Drive. Tucked underneath the top row of pedals are a Wampler Velvet Fuzz, GNI Octa Fuzz, an Electro-Harmonix POG, a Keeley-modified Boss Blues Driver, and finally a modded JHS Angry Charlie.
