You're awesome, E_O!
Never expected that Edge will actually use those Vox pedals with tubes (or whatever).
So not ALL the sounds aren't coming from Axe then?

Verdict is not in on what exact items were used for what - definitively.

Keep in mind, companies send them items to try out. That could be a bit of what that photo is about.

But I would suspect the Axe was involved in a lot of the tones + various pedals. That photo alone shows... what... 3 Tremolos? I doubt all three will end up in the rig.

But I could see a full size rack, not the double. In that, I'd imagine the Axe and some pedal drawers for the Korg SDD pedals, boutiques bits and pieces...

I'm hoping that there will be a bit more of the studio type footage released. That could help a bit.

Tough bit is, as it was a 'sort of' secret release, I doubt any of the guitar magazines (Guitar Player, Guitar World, etc) have interviews with Edge/Dallas planned. It might not be until the tour next summer that we learn more - when such interviews might end up in the guitar mags.

That said, we will have Songs of Experience (supposedly before the end of the year and far ahead of the tour).... so there will be more tunes and tones to decipher.

I wonder if the DBA Harmonic Transformer or that Vox pedal had anything to do with the big distortion in 'Sleep Like A Baby'....

Like I said, just hoping for a bit more pics and video to see a bit more of what might have been used.

Edge's tour rack is a completely different animal. He usually has a promo tour rack (which is obviously very slimmed down) and he will totally get by with 1 or 2 fractal units for selected songs.

Overall I do believe the fractal units will heavily influence his touring rack, that is to say he won't have 2 giant racks anymore but probably slim it down to 1. Only time will tell.

Im sure that Fractal can replace many of his racks (AMS, most of Line 6 stuff, his wah/whammy or even TC delays), but Korg A3 or SDD3000 will still remain in the rack, I think. Yeah, Ill be simple, but will remain crazy enough so that we can still speculate what's happening in his rig

If you see the making of the video where appear the pedals, the tc appears for the delays

^I know, but ti can be replaced. I know it's a good unit, but it's no longer made, takes huge room in the rack, etc. Don't worry, I'm just speculating.

Yeah. Here we all are speculating. But i only know that the tc is impossible to replicate exactly. So i think he will use at least 1 unit of TC

Edge might have not liked it either. Keep in mind, that photo is like others during studio recordings... items there were there and being tried. He might have tried it and never used it again.

Also, while it may not have garnered great reviews, I remember the Lie 6 DM 4 getting some bad reviews. I'd go on a limb to say that Edge using it to good effect (pun intended) probably helped sell some of those units.

The Edge's current rack setup on stage



The new SDD-3000 pedal on top of the rack and looks like 3 Axe-FX units in the rack.
