    I think Brad Whitford of Aerosmith has one on his board.

    Paul C himself! (I mean, rumor has it. I haven't seen his board.) :rotflmao
     
  14. So in other words, no.
    The thread used the word "famous".
    Other than Brad from Aerosmith, none of the others qualify.
    Of course, there are tons of boutique effects that are rarely in the hands of pros: Menatone, BJF, ZVEX, Tonezar, etc.
    You know what a LOT of pros do use though?
    Boss.
    Fulltone. (lol)

    A few things occur to me here:-

    1) What are we using as a definition for "famous"? You've used a more stringent one that what I'd personally apply when posting on a guitar gear forum. :)

    Some of these folks while not as historically well known as Aerosmith/Brad are still playing with Artists selling a lot of records (Jewel, Lonestar) and playing in front of a lot of people.

    2) Is "famous" (as in household word) as valid as say "guitar player of considerable repute"?

    3) Is it really valid to compare use of the products of really big companies with significant marketing budgets to the product of one guy who until recently wasn't even building as his primary job and depends purely on word of mouth?

    George Lynch has a new "mini" magazine with the new Premier Guitar Magazine and mentions that he likes it a lot.
