The 6-string lycanthrope behind Ozzy’s Bark at the Moon shares the blisteringly loud setup used to power his new band, Red Dragon Cartel.

Jake E. Lee’s modest pedalboard runs entirely on various flavors of 9V batteries. He starts with Mogami cables running from his guitar to a Prescription Electronics Experience pedal before hitting a mysterious silver fuzz pedal. (Lee claims it was once owned by Paul Gilbert.) After those, Lee’s signal hits a Boss TU-3 tuner, a Magik Box Jake E. Lee Body Blow, an MXR Stereo Chorus, an Analog Man Bi-Chorus, and MXR Carbon Copy, and finally a Vox wah (not pictured).
