Rig Rundown: The Afghan Whigs

The alt-rock pioneers show us the killer screen-printed Mesa/Boogies and piles of pedals they use to dish out both ethereal and rough-and-tumble tones.

Nelson runs his violin and cello into a Radial Tonebone PZ-Pre, then into an MXR M108 EQ pedal right before a Morley A/B switch where guitar enters the chain. The guitar side starts with an Xotic EP Booster before going into a Malekko Sloika, Way Huge Green Rhino, Malekko Ekko 616, Way Huge Supa-Puss, Electro-Harmonix POG2, Boss RV-5, Mr. Black Eterna, Sabine NexFx Tuner, and an Ernie Ball volume pedal.
