I'm pretty sure he uses one on the EBTTRT intro. I use it as well when playing it and looking at video's of it, he's not moving his hand.

I think you are mixing up a Digitech Whammy pedal with a whammy bar. No whammy bar on Even Better.

EDIT: Yep, I had the wrong thing in mind. I was not aware for this name of it, as I usually call it tremolo bar/arm.

In that case, I only know that he uses it on WOWY, as seen on the Joshua Tree DVD.

He doesn't use it on Streets. I saw the vid of him playing Streets with the Music Rising Les Paul which doesn't have a whammy bar and he still got the sound.

He did use it in streets, I've seen him using it.... and that he got that sound during streets in Cannes might be because there was a mixing desk with effects next to larry and someone playing on it...
I'll see if there's a vid on youtube where you can see he uses the bar...



short second, 3.38


around 4.10-12

Ok, I was partially wrong. ^^ Guess he got a tremolo pedal as well then. Yesterday was the only time he did not play streets on a strat, right?
