Rig Rundown: Blackberry Smoke

The Southern rockers take no prisoners with their twin-guitar attack.

Jackson runs his guitar into a Sennheiser ew 100 ENG G3 wireless unit, which sends the signal to his Dunlop Cry Baby Wah. From there it hits a Pigtronix Rototron and a trio of Wampler pedals—a Decibel+, Paisley Drive, and an Ego Compressor—before hitting a Big Joe Stomp Box B-408 Phaser and a Boss TU-3 tuner.

Premier Guitar hung with Charlie Starr and Paul Jackson of Blackberry Smoke just a few hours before they blew the roof off of Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. The boys shared their recipe for Southern rock tone that’s as thick as grits and gravy. Special thanks to the band’s tech, David “Doc” Oswalt, for details.
