About these Rigs


Who doesnt Want to play guitar like their heroes? But while you may be able to copy their riffs, its often troublesome nailing their tones. For one thing, you need to know a players signal path, and not everyone is psychic, or really good at deconstructing sounds from listening to CDs, or has the means to get backstage passes to check out an artists gear up close. Then, theres the fact that a lot of guitar stars have massive bank accounts with which to acquire high-end and vintage gear, and many of us are not as well funded. Happily, Guitar Rigs of the Superstars endeavors to solve these sonic dilemmas by detailing the setups that 25 top guitarists use to craft their tones, and then suggesting lower-cost gear alternatives that even a lowly intern such as myself could afford in order to emulate those great guitar sounds. Using our gear lists, you should be able to match tones with your favorite guitar superhero, or even mix up the high-end and affordable tools to create your own uniquely ripping rig. However, before you start unlocking the tonal secrets of the 25 guitarists in this magazine, lets clarify a few points: The high-end rig lists are based on gear each guitarist has been known to use. Obviously, weve kept to the same brands and models, but, as the original items may be one-of-a-kind or discontinued, weve selected stunning, yet pricey options for those who wantand can affordthe very best. As an artists gear choices are often very fluid, we cant guarantee that every guitarist still uses all the models listed, or that all of their most recent models are documented. The rigs in this edition are representations of gear each guitarist has used at one time or another to craft their sounds. Weve tried to keep the lists as current as possible, but if we missed something, please update the rig details by posting a correction in Guitar Players online forum at guitarplayer. com. Simply title your thread Guitar Rigs of the Superstars Correction so that we can all easily access your update. The affordable rig alternatives were selected solely by the editors of Guitar Player, and were chosen to provide low-cost options to each guitarists basic tonal recipe. Wherever possible we stuck to the same parent company and its divisions Gibson and Epiphone, Fender and Squier, etc. but sometimes we went for different brands that best reached a lower price point. Hopefully, this compilation will help you floor your audience with titanic tones and roaring riffs. From simple to super complex, each of these setups offers a ton of tonal optionswhether you want to get as close to a players sound as possible, or simply want to craft unique tones by mixing and matching the suggested guitars, amps, pedals, strings, and other gadgets. Now, kick off your shoes, relax, and check out these awesome rigs! Sebastian Fotouhi Project Editor, Guitar Rigs of the Superstars

The Cure for The Pedal Bored

Bass Boost Chorus


The Bass Boost Chorus gives bass players something they have long deserved: a chorus that actually works. On bass. This pedal has been optimized to avoid the motion sickness side-effects of traditional chorus effects. A key aspect of this design is the Detune control, which adjusts the pitch of the choral voices to create deep and lush chorus before you dial in any modulation. Put some sweet on your low with the Bass Boost Chorus.

Boost Chorus Roto Choir


The Roto Choir provides players with a hyper-realistic emulation of a rotating speaker cabinet in a compact pedal. Specially developed SansAmp technology recreates the complex interactions of both the rotating lower speaker and the treble horn. Even the tonality of the original tube power amp and mic are included. A powerful control section allows you to adjust all of these elements to create endlessly rich, multi-dimensional modulations. Whatever instrument you play, the Roto Choir will make it sing. Based on the lush analog chorus effects of the 70s, this design incorporates cutting-edge performance and unique effect combinations to create a throughly modern pedal. The comprehensive control array allows adjustment of every aspect of the effect, including depth, speed, mix and tone. A Pre-Delay control adds delay to the chorus to produce a huge range of tones, including flanging and doubler combination effects. When its time to bliss out, hit the Multi Voice switch for a celestial ensemble-style effect.

Theres no shortage of effects pedals that can color your sound but, when it comes to building a tone that inspires you, its all in the ingredients. Every Tech 21 pedal has incredibly detailed, organic tones and a powerful control set to explore tons of great-sounding possibilities. These pedals are tour-ready devices with rock solid construction and military-spec components that deliver world-class, studio-grade sound quality. Turn your pedalboard into a delicious smorgasboard. Savor the tones of an inspiring range of Tech 21 pedals.

Boost D.L.A.

Create everything from clean digital-style delays, to warm analog bucket brigade repeats, to grungy tape echo. Tweak your heart out with the feature-packed controls, including Tap Tempo, Triplets and Trails functions, and a boost of up to 9dB. If your tone sounds D.O.A. bring it back to life with the D.L.A.

Boost R.V.B.

From light shimmers to deep, swampy atmospheres, the R.V.B. emulates natural room ambiances, spring reverbs and vintage plate units. Add some retro audio-gunk with the Rumble control, engage the Trails function or add up to 9dB of clean boost for solos that pop.

Want something new in a bass fuzzbox? This wickedly dynamic pedal gets meaner the harder you play, shifting from enhanced lower harmonics to buzz-saw, higher harmonic distortions. The sinister R.I.P. control drives your tone from vintage fuzz to monolithic distortion, into Brassmaster-style octaver fuzz and Moogie-style synth tones. Bloody amazing.

Red Ripper

Double Drive 3X

with Private Stock Mod for 2011


Prefer the even harmonic roar of a Class A power amp being pushed hard or the odd harmonic crunch of a Class A/B amp with the master volume dimed? How about both? How about both at once? With this 3-channel distortion pedal, you can use them separately or cascaded together for mammoth tones. Youll find even more aggressive tones, a tighter low end, and a wider Level taper with the 2011 Private Stock Mod.

Designed and Manufactured in the U.S.A.
