    Warren Hayne's sound on Soulshine on The Deepest End, Live in Concert is one of my favorite recorded guitar tones.

    Anyone know what amp he was playing? Was it all amp overdrive or some pedal(s) as well?

    I think he's been playing the 2 head Cesar Diaz/SLO combo with mule for years upon years now. Mostly amp overdrive I believe he only had a klon centaur in the pedal chain

    ^^^^^^^^^^That's pretty much it as I understand it - Cesar for cleans, SLO for dirt, wonderful, glorious dirt.

    Yep, One of my favorite guitarists as well. And the above posts are correct about his amps. You can see them here if you stop at the 1:37 mark:

    And this may be of some help as well: http://www.warrenhaynes.net/gear-guide

    I saw them about 2 weeks before Woody died, and Warren was having problems with his switching/pedal rig all night.

    Finally, he just unplugged and went straight into an amp - the Diaz... Didn't sound clean to me.

    Wouldn't be the first time I was wrong, but I'm not admitting defeat just yet :drink. I'm pretty sure I read that he *normally* (that is, used in conjunction with the SLO for dirt) uses the Diaz for cleans and a Tweedy crunch. Perhaps if set appropriately it gets nasty. :dunno

    Well, the Diaz really isn't set clean like a Fender Twin on "3" but at 120w+ the Diaz has plenty of headroom. He seems to set the Diaz for a decent crunch with great headroom, then the guitar's volume controls come into play.

    He uses the Diaz for cleans only, except for that one show where apparently the SLO broke down. Met him a couple of times and that's his story anyway.

    I'd bet he backs off on the volume knob for "cleans", too. Not to mention his pick attack probably changes. And we're not talking that clean... more along the lines of AC/DC type cleans on something like "Ride On".

    He uses the neck pup a lot when he solos as well.

    Oh yeah... that's the creamy tone he gets.
    Man it has been awhile since I've listened to some Mule. Might have to give them a spin.

    If you watch any videos of him, he is frequently adjusting the guitar's knobs.
