    Easy question.
    I was watching RATM live at the Grand Olympic Auditorium(Great DVD!) I was just wondering what Tom(guitar player) was fliping during all his solos?
    The switch is by the neck on all his guitar, and it makes funky sounds like a wah wah pedal. What is it?

    It's just his pickup switch. He keeps one pickup turned off and one on, so when he flips it back and forth, it's a sort of manual tremelo thing. He does it incredibly fast while using his whammy which makes it sound all trippy.

    Doing that while also running effects, delay. flange, tremolo etc. Not sure what he uses they are very secretive.
