Guitarists Kerry McCoy and Shiv Mehra might have similar tastes in gear, but their approach to combining modern metal riffs with soundscape samples sets them apart.

Shiv plugs his Dunable into a TC Electronic PolyTune which sends the signal to an Electro-Harmonix Mel9, a Dunlop Cry Baby Wah, Boss DD-7 Delay, Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Nano, and an Electro-Harmonix Freeze. Out of sight sits a Roland SP-404 Sampler for any interludes he needs to trigger.

Special thanks to day-to-day manager Dan Nakhoul for all his help.
