    The Try! album with the trio is a smorgasboard of sweet tones, but the tone on "Out of my mind" really sticks out (in a good way). What is he using on that song? I've seen some videos of "Out of my mind" where he plays a strat, but those doesn't sound like the cut from the album. Also, what's going on pedal wise? Is it a fuzz..?

    Thanks Gregory,

    for some reason I though it was a SG the first time I heard that song. Close enough I guess. Regarding the pedals... are you sure there isn't a fuzz in there? I've seen the Trio pedalboard too and sure, there's no fuzz in sight, but that song has this slightly rolled back fuzz tone to my ears. Is that the modded BD-2 I'm hearing?

    it could be any combination of those pedals along with the dirt channel of the custom reverb sig two rock he was using at the time! but to be honest no i'm not sure there could be a fuzz. Definitly the neck pick up for most of the tune though.

    The keeley bd-2 that he used can really get some light fuzz tones with the gain maxed out. It was also DEFINATELY the 335 on the CD.
