    no pics but from the interview section of their live dvd he says his pedalboard consists of:
    2 line 6 distortion modelers, a delay modeler with line 6 expression pedal. zvex fuzz factory, and a boss reverb pedal of some sort.

    my best guess appears to be: TU-2->Z.Vex->DM4->DL-4 (w/expression; verified from another angle)->Boss RV-3. If anyone sees differently, feel free to correct me. :)

    Its probably the SVT, he seems to have a OD'ed tone most of the time.
    It could be the DM4 but I have never owned one, the drive is very SVT-ish though.

    From my own experience, the Grabber bass has a lot to do with that tone.

    I guess, I could never get that kind of tone out of my old Grabber though.

    didnt he join the band after playing bass for a few months or something? maybe im thinking of another band.
  16. yea, im pretty sure he or his brother was brought on with little experience and just spent enough time in the woodshed to keep up. theres not an untalented member in that band.

    I saw 'em live a couple years back, and having never heard them before, I thought they were a bit boring. Of course, that could've been because they were on right before Deftones, who're one of my all-time favorite groups...

    Any recommendations on albums/tracks to give 'em another shot with?

    Listen to The Alchemy Index in order (Fire, Water, Earth, Air).
  20. The Alchemy Index is pretty awesome. Very, very versitile stuff with a cool concept running throughout. Vheissu is a really cool album as well.

    Eddie was actually a big reason why I started getting really into effects in the first place. He was the first guy that I ever really listened to that used a lot of effects in heavy music, and he always has awesome tone.
