The Edge's pedals and effects

Does anyone know how many pedals Edge has or what he uses for each song?

Of course if anyone where to post what Edge uses for each song in which order he would have no choice but to send in the Men in Black to kill us.

eBay is the place to go if you want to get this crap. and some of the pedals like the Boss FET and Lovetone Meatball/Doppelganger cost a lot of money.

Edge uses a lot of his gear for just one song or two songs. Unless you are on the same budget it's madness to go and do the same. You would be better of buying stuff that allows you to do most of the Edge's tones and accept that for a few songs you will have to overcome, improvise, adapt.

99% of the audience you are playing for will never notice anyway that your tubescreamer isn't the exact TS-808 that Edge uses.

So whats the suggestion on the best pedal(s) to buy? In the sub-$150 range? I was going to pick up a vintage Memory Man off of eBay to play some Boy and War stuff...
