Rig Rundown: Zakk Wylde
May 25, 2016
One of modern metal’s most influential shredders takes us behind the curtain to show us the namesake gear powering his over-the-top tone.
Wylde Audio is currently in the process of designing some pedals, but until they are finished, the metal lord populates his board with a variety of stomps from Dunlop. Using Monster Cable out of his guitar, he plugs into a Dunlop ZW-45 Zakk Wylde Signature Wah, Dunlop ZW357 Zakk Wylde Signature Rotovibe, MXR Uni-Vibe, MXR ZW90 Wylde Phaser, MXR ZW44 Berzerker Overdrive, and a MXR Carbon Copy delay. He keeps a Keith McMillen Batt-O-Meter handy because he takes the old-school approach of loading 9V batteries in each pedal.
