Andrew Weiss Rollins band pedals?

    I've done searches but can't find specific mentions of what pedals Weiss used into his GK/Hartke setup. End Of Silence is to this day the benchmark of distorted, auto wah bass I've heard. I saw an old live video where it looked like he had two Boss? pedals taped together near the foot of his cabs. One looked like the color of an ODB-3 and the other I believe was white. Anyone know for sure?

    Andrew Weiss rocks in the Rollins Band :)

    A white Boss pedal would be the tuner I'd guess..
  3. I'm sure it's some sort of envelope filter/auto wah, and I've been searching all over the sun on some information about his setup (pedal wise)...no luck.

  5. Thanks -I actually went through that thread, but I thought I would post under the one that was titled appropriatley. I know that his tone is OD/Fuzz + Envelope Filter, but it's the sound of the filter that I'm looking for. If anyone has any suggestions...

    Huh...whadaya know...that is an ODB-3 down there. I never would've guessed it.

    We must find out this magic setting. :D

    The End Of Silence has some of the greatest bass tones ever recorded in a studio. Weiss is a monster. Too bad he doesn't play much anymore, I guess that Ween money has compromised his chops.

    Dig the 2 string bass in Zapp's link!

    I think Weiss DID play on the newest Ween album (La Cucaracha), assuming I'm reading these liner notes correctly. Fantastic album, BTW.

    A few more possible candidates -




    That is a red pedal to the left of the white/yellow one isn't it? The lightning and bad camera kind of make it look a bit purple at times thoughout the footage. For the record I couldn't find any purple Boss pedals, made before 1991 that weren't Flangers or Choruses. Also, does anyone else think that there may be a black or dark coloured pedal down to the left of the white/yellow one, and even possibly one to the right of the red one too, an Ibanez Fat Cat perhaps? (See D.A.R.K.'s post in the thread pasted above).

    EDIT: My bad, looks like that might just be black tape, holding the lighter colour pedal to the floor. The clip shows a pretty close shot at around 2:35.

    I don't know about End of Silence days, but I know previous to that he used a Tube Screamer or a Boss Heavy Metal 2. I used to hang with him a bit when they came through on tour.
