Do you know somthing about the effects /gear Jonny Greenwood uses with Radiohead?
he also likes his Ondes Martenot. not guitar gear though.
what a killer band. not many records have done it for me like OK Computer.
Is there any word on recent gear updates for Rh?
Any new pedals or are they still working the headrushes and DL4s and stuff?
There was rumours of fuzz factories and the likes making an appearance but could just be idle internet chatter.
I know Jonny uses a Marshall Shredmaster for some of his distorted tones. I have one up in the emporium now for cheaper than you can find on ebay....
Thats not a good site man... Its left the most important effects out! ALot of the thick Fuzz is made by a Lonetone Big Cheese pedal, and also he is welknown for his use of a Dod Envelope Filter 440.
Also ! The FENDER STARCASTER! Come on!
Here's a better site that covers all the band members and their gear. Pretty sure you'll find it's Ed who uses the Big Cheese ...
Yep Ed uses the cheese.
Jonnys pedals are something like this (off the top of my head - its been a while!)
SD1>RV3>Small Stone>Dod 440>Tremulator>Polychorus>Whammy>
LS-2A>Shred>Fender 85 amp
LS-2B>Space Echo>Vox AC30
Two other LS-2:
LS2 (ontop of Pedal power 2) >Insert Headrush/Kaoss Pad
LS2 (Off pedalboard) > Laptop/Cycling 74 software
Vox Egg (Off pedalboard) switches on Space Echo
sweeet! thanks for the link!
Im bringing this thread back up to ask about the guitar part in Paranoid Android when Thom's singing, "What's that..."
It sounds like an octave something or other. I checked out the last link and I couldn't pick it out from the list. Is it the dod? whammy? small stone? Ive never used any of these so Im in the dark. Help?
Booyah. Great song.
Here ya go...
what happened to the rat? does anybody know during which albums he used that?
HEY! I use that tuner!
I think that you hear some Whammy octave up effect there, but from Ed's guitar rather than Johnny's. They both play the same descending melody an octave apart on the fretboard, although it sounds like two octaves apart because of the Whammy. Johnny also uses his small stone for this part live, I'm almost sure I've also heard him use the DOD Envelope Filter for this part sometimes in live shows.
Jonny never used a rat on tour. Thom was using a rat for awhile in the Bends/OKC day, though no real clear pedal boards photos of his set up has turned up recently.
This is a great forum for radiohead gear.
Thank you! I didnt hear the second guitar there (panned left). The higher octave one is what I was getting at (panned right). So that is the Whammy? I've heard that effect in some other of their tunes, but I cant think of any of them right now because Im just thinking about that guitar riff.... DANG IT!
Thank you for your help!
Why does Jonny wear that arm brace?
Im guessing carpal tunnel. Ive seen some live footy of him with that brace playing paranoid android and EFFING ripped it!! You know that has got to be some kinda uncomfortable. He played like nothing was there at all.
