    Can't really see from the pic but one of them must be a delay as he used that in Liberate the Illiterate

    The final white one that's half-hidden by his arm must be the delay then, prolly a DD-3 or a DD-6.

    I have no clue what the black pedal could be--doesn't look like a Metal Zone to me, but maybe.

  7. that black one has to be a metal zone, and i what might be a green pedal in there, and the only green pedal i know about is the tube screamer, so it might be a tube screamer...might just be tape...

    That black one looks dark brown to me, so I'm thinking (along with the fact it's got three knobs, look at the yellow tape) that it might be a Boss OC-2. The green pedal could be a Digitech BSW.

    You could be right about the octaver.The Green one could also be a phaser if there even is a green pedal on there!

    That green one looks the wrong shade to be a BSW, it looks more like a Boss Phase shifter to me... Then again, the photo is blurry, it could be a BSW. But I'll guess it's a phaser.

  11. upon closer inspection, i think its just green tape...its the exact same color as the green tape in front...

    Yeah, that list doesn't quite match up. I'm pretty sure I can spot an EQ pedal, and I don't see a Sansamp anywhere... That green thing might actually be the LS-2 though, with green tape on the bottom as superbassman said.

    Aye, as I remember, the Sansamp is a bass driver used only as a DI, which is at the amp side of things.

    I'm pretty sure both James and Simon use Metal Zone pedals - certainly Simon's the only guitarist I've everr worked with to get a decent tone out of one.

    As for delay, I'm pretty sure they must use one, but what the hell. Next time they're around, I'll have a natter.

    Yeah,that big silver box is the power supply, prolly homemade from the looks of it.
