    I'm new here and not sure where to post this. Anyone know about what Kenny Vaughan has on his pedalboard? What about that Big Jo amp?

    I know he's got little bit of everything on his board. I've got some off in the distance pictures that I'll take a look at latter. I do remember he has/had a Fulldrive 2, Deja Vibe from what I can remember. He does have a MAD Effects Black Label Special and an Isane Pedals Disdain. I'll take a look at those pictures when I get to my other computer.

    I looked at the pictures I had and couldn't make out much. What I did see on the board was an Insane Disdain, Nobels OD-1, Fulltone Dejavibe, MAD Effects BLSOD, TU2. Here is another list I got from his side bands page. Floyd guitar, hollow-body w/ Bigsby, made by Floyd of Glaser Instruments. Kenny uses a very early Naylor SuperDrive 60, that is mislabeled SuperDrive 50. It was labeled before being rated. He uses a Naylor 4x12 cab with Celestion blackback speakers. He loves and uses as many Robert Keeley pedals as possible, most notably, Keeley's compressor, his BD2 mod, his TS-9 mod and his trem pedal

    I'm sure you can email the website and Leroy can get you a full list.

    Thanks Marcus, the listing of his gear on ilikeguitars.com is in response to an e-mail I sent in to Leroy. Things have changed a little bit in his rig though, that's why I'm asking again.

    What is a Insane Disdain and MAD Effects BLSOD?

    Thanks!

    He used a Vox AC30 at a master class I saw him at (with Marty Stuart) in late March.

    The Insane Unknown Pedals Disdain I made for Leroy. He was selling gear, maybe still is, It was a modified Lil' Bastard Brew Fuzz. The M.A.D. Effects BLSOD{Black Label Special Over Drive} is one of my creations. I've since discontinued both and started to do the Black Label Extra Special. I'll put you up some links here so you can take a look at what they are.

    Black Label Special Review @ HC
    Black Label Extra Special

    The Lil' Bastard Brew Fuzz is/was a silicon one knob fuzz boost. It went from a vintage to modern very easily. I used mismatched transistors in it.

    The Black Label OD Special is/was an assymetrical overdrive. It let you keep the natural tones of your amp and guitar and does a good job at bed room levels too. I intergrated it and the and the OD/Preamp into one single pedal with a toggel switch and trhat became the Extra Special. They are both in the Double Shot. You can use both at the same time in that version.

    I hope this helps you out. :)

    Just saw a picture of Kenny playing with Marty Stuart and he's using a Peavey Penta head and cab.
