Rig Rundown: Journey's Neal Schon (2014)
The self-admitted gear junkie walks us through his current rig.
Amps and Effects
Schon controls the Ax-Fx II with an MFC-101 controller, but Day can override any setting from his tech station. The three expression pedals on the pedalboard control delay, reverb, and synth pad effects.
If you look closely, you’ll see most of the effects covered in cellophane. Day tells us at first it was to combat the unexpected weather at outdoor shows, however, he learned that it also keeps all the effects and connectors working smoothly with less intrusive dirt and moisture, so it stays on for indoor shows as well. Brilliant!
Special thanks to Adam Day for spending extra time with us and making this all possible!
