    Adam Yauch uses a Univox SuperFuzz pedal (the red one) ... you can see the pedal on the top of his amp head here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/oscilloscope/495719535/

    He also used a "DNA Analogic BD-1 Bass Dragger Distortion Pedal" ... this pedal also functions as a booster and was made in Japan. If MCA (Yauch) also used it for the recording session of the great "Check your head" album ... in don´t know, but he used the BD-1 and the Univox Super Fuzz live on stage 2007 tour.

    Not 100% sure which pedal he uses on "Gratitude" and/or "Sabotage". I did a version of Gratitude with acBig Muff (green) + WahWah ... great sound!
