This is where I stood all night. Full frontal assault from that stack. My ears are still ringing!

Only the two RJS heads were on.

Check out the back of the necks on the white Charvels. Definitely different than the maple on the blue Charvel on the left.

Not sure which of these is the fuzz pedal but I wasn't a fan of the tone when he kicked it on.

The Prescription Electronic Experience in the lower left is a fuzz, octave, and swell...which is an awesome pedal no longer made. But he had a 2nd fuzz pedal on the board at the beginning of the tour too. Not sure what that pedal next to it is or the one in the upper right is...the upper right looks like an MXR one though.
Love that he plays an ES-335 on Chasing Ghosts!
Full disclosure - I'm not a fan of fuzzes so take my comment with a grain of salt. However, when compared to the awesome tone he was getting with just the RJS head and whatever drive he was using for a boost, I was disappointed in the tone with the fuzz.
When comparing the pedal board pic from last night to KidManDude's from earlier in the tour, it appears the MXR Analog Delay, Analogman Bi-Chorus, MXR Chorus, PE Experience, and Majik Fuzz are still on the board in the same spots. The Boss tuner is now in the middle of the chain. The silver box between the PE and tuner is new.
Killer guitar tone.
On a side note, I wonder if Jake is having some wrist issues. He had both wrapped with KT Tape. I have Carpal Tunnel issues in my wrists and sometimes playing is extremely painful in my wrists and hands. May have to try wrapping them.
First of all thank you for the videos and THANK YOU for finally somebody posting a pedalboard pic.
The pedals are as seen in the upside down picture:
Top Row in pic
Majik Box Body Blow with Jake E Lee Mod Overdrive; MXR M134 Stereo Chorus, Analogman Bi-Chorus; MXR Carbon Copy
Bottom Row in pic
Prescription Electonics Experience (Fuzz/Octave/Swell); Mystery Fuzz, Boss Tuner
The Mystery Fuzz (mystery because I don't know what it is) showed up after the first or second show when it replaced the Majik Box Bipolar Fuzz.
Would love to know what the 'Mystery" pedal is.
Lastly on top of the rack sits a EHX Stereo Memory Man with Hazarai
Please take this comment as a joke as I'm truly poking fun here, but...
Are you a pedalboard stalker?
Cloverdale is a mighty fine guitarist
Lol, not really, but I considering this is the Gearpage and considering how many guitar players are going to see the Red Dragon Cartel shows, I am just completely flabbergasted that there haven't been any pedal board pics anywhere. The only one we ever saw was the official one right at the beginning of the tour.
I am a Fuzz addict though and I was really curious what Fuzz Jake would take on the road besides the Experience to get those album tones live. I also really like all the tones he got on Patina. If you listen with headphones you can hear all these little places where he uses Vibe, Flangers, Choruses, Tremolos etc. etc.
So listen, look and learn
Timely info! Thanks to all. I’m headed to Greenville next Friday night to catch the RDC show and wonder about the opening acts...have they all been local bands or is somebody traveling with them? I don’t see anything on the bill or anywhere else.
2 Local bands in Angola.
yes, Local bands for all shows. No other band is with them on the road.
Are you on tour with them Bobby?
Killing it........ I don't hear it. IMO his lead playing and songwriting was so much better back with Ozzy. Jake can't even play the his own outro-solo to BATM. Neither can I but I didn't write it either. The band (RDC), the songwriting and the album are OK. If they came around these parts to a small theater I may go just for the fun of it.
The tones! THE TONES! Yeah, I couldn't agree more... actually working on a blog post re: Patina and that's definitely something I'm going to call out. Lots of different colors and shades and he did that a little in the Badlands days too ("Streets Cry Freedom" is a great example). Lots of sweetness all around on that disc.
