    What effect is John using on the solo to Dani California? I know he uses vintage stuff, but what will get me that sound? Is that an Octave Fuzz? Thanks

    DS-1, fuzz factory, Big muff?...When I play that solo I use my ff with strat and phase (I use phase 90 evh edition) he uses a moog 12 stage phaser. Thats for the first part, then for the second part I think theres more phase, or maybe flange?...Well Id just use the ff or big muff and a phase 90.

    He's feeding his guitar tone through some sort of modular synth throughout the album.

    He doesn't necessarily use that stuff in the studio. I read in an interview with him in one of the guitar mags that he used a modular synth quite a bit on the album.

    Alright, I was just guessing anyways, your probably right though, wait you are, I read something about that in the guitarworld issue this month or last month with him on the cover, theres a whole thing on how he uses synths and stuff in the studio...your a genius!

    Perhaps the coolest thing about the Moog stuff (aside from the tone!) is that the pedals combined with the Control Processor basically form a modular synth of sorts. 8^)

    I know he uses a lot of EHX stuff, too. I've seen a Big Muff and a POG on his board, which could explain the octave fuzz.

    Wow, maybe I should add a control processor onto my board too, Ive got the MuRF and ring mod, I still want to get the low pass filter, then maybe the CP251...if it does what you say it does I would really like to have one! I havent seen a POG on his board?...maybe in the studio, but there definatley is alot of EHX stuff!

    Read more on the Moog site about it. It's really cool.

    About the POG, I found this (kinda bad) pic on another forum:

    Count about five pedals back on the bottom row. :^D

    I could hardly make out all of the moogs lol, But I see it,next to the ibanez wah. I have the Ibanez wah aswell, he has the WH-10 and Ive got the WF-10 fuzz wah but can be used as a normal wah, I dont like it to be honest, its built very cheap, plastic. But, the sounds you can get are very cool.
