    Does anyone know? I heard it on the radio today and remembered how I like the tone he gets on man who sold the world.

    Yeah Eric, his go to pedal was the DS-2 so it wouldn't surprise me. Lithium has a green russian muff.

    Interesting, I may have to check out a DS-2 then, or wait, the proper TGP response is:

    Who makes a hand made DS-2 clone with True Bypass? ;)

    I'll give you partial credit. :)

    It's a Boss DS-2 and a Small Clone Chorus.

    Not an opinion either, that's what he used.

    I was about to ask if you were going to be bidding on THE Martin to pair with the pedal ;)
