The prog-metal juggernauts discuss how their signature axes cranked through Axe-Fx units create their brutal live tone.
Dustie controls everything with a stomp of the foot thanks to his Fractal Audio MFC-101 Mark III MIDI Foot Controller. In addition, he tweaks his tone on the fly with two Mission Engineering EP-1 expression pedals. The only two stompboxes in his live rig are a TC Electronic PolyTune Mini and a Port City Salem Boost. He loves the Salem because it makes things sound “huge, fat, and tube-y.”
