Could be a custom unit. He's been using that one for a long time. Is that an old pic? I spy the Skrydstrup controller on the left and wasn't that one replaced by a CAE controller?

Posted in the wrong thread. Deleted what I initially posted as it contained tour spoilers.

yeah that sample/sequencer-triggering pedal is in use in IE tour from 2015 as well; it seems like Edge hasn't really changed rig since the last tour, though I'm sure there were some minor changes.

There's hardly any new material on this tour, he only needs some new tones for some old songs he's hasn't played in decades, when his rig was far simpler. Besides, why should he change his rig? Because somebody says so? Some guitarists tour for decades with the same rig. The old Elevation rig served him for 10 years and three tours. And he's now got the Axe, there are a shitload of tones for him to explore in that.

I thought that his rig would be easier, because of the reason you mentioned. recently i see more guitar players bringing simpler rigs for the convenience. but this is Edge and i feel like he needs exact tones he made in JT. actually some sounds off of JT sound very weird and have no idea how to really replicate, so. i think Edge's really doing a great job replicating all kinds of weird tones.

He doesn't need an 80's rig, because he's got the Axe. 8 of them. And one of the biggest reasons he's got the Axe was because his old 80's era gear was literally falling apart. So why go back to falling apart gear when his current gear can do the job?

And that's excluding that Edge's tastes have changed. He doesn't always use the same units and guitars for the same older songs he has been playing over the years. Because I suspect he came across a combo of gear that to him sounded better. In which case I pose that Edge doesn't seek the exact tones he made on JT, he seeks the best sounding tones that he currently has available to him. Factor in that his old gear has basically fallen apart and that the Axe can do the job, why go for a complete overhaul of his rig?

Anybody have an idea as to what was the cause of Edge's technical difficulties at the Miami show. I was there and noticed he was hitting his wireless unit on the way back to Dallas. First thing they did was plug in to a cable. Didn't work. Edge disappears downstairs and when he finally did have sound, the delay did not sound right. Any ideas? Then the piano wouldn't work on rtss.

Because he's like the princess who can feel a pea underneath a whole stack of mattresses? He thinks he can hear the difference so therefore it has to be in his rig. And he's got the money to pay Bob Bradshaw to put it in his rig and Dallas and his roadies to haul it around for him.

We're dealing with multiple things here. Firstly tone is a subjective thing and if you're convinced something sounds better, it will sound better. Secondly when you're rich, a poor person's OCD's and insanities become a rich guy's quirks and eccentricities. Thirdly, when you no longer have to haul your own rig around, it tends to open the floodgates on what kinds of things suddenly become absolutely essential to be included in your rig. You will rarely if ever see a guitarist with the same kind of rig as the Edge if he has to haul it around himself. I have a large 16U rack with all sorts of fancy gear standing in my bedroom. You take that along once, maybe twice, and then you go f*** this shit, suddenly that modeler doesn't sound so bad anymore.
