First: “The Mathematics Of Love”
Squier Stratocaster Deluxe (believe it or not a $300 guitar)
the pickups were changed to Dimarzio Hs-2s w/ Dimarzio Chopper in the bridge & bone nut added – otherwise stock.
strings- set starting w/ .009.
Swart Space Tone 5 watts into an 8″ speaker
Way Huge Delay
Drive/Boost pedals include an Xotic EP Boost, Xotic BB Preamp,
MI Audio Blues Pro, Mi Audio Crunch Box
Fulltone OCD & Plimsoul.
I used different drive/boost options for different tracks during this live recording (we did a number of songs that day).
The Ep Boost was a constant, the Crunch Box was used sparingly.
Typically the drive pedals would be employed one at a time although sometimes the EP was added to a milder overdrive for emphasis in certain sections
The EP is a cleanish boost, The Blues Pro is a milder drive, the BB & Plimsoul are bolder, the OCD has a range of drive & i used it w/ a lower drive setting generally……
Then “See That My Grave Is Kept Clean”
Same gear was utilized as “Mathematics” except the guitar is a Fender Custom Shop Tele Jr
w/ pick-ups changed to Dimarzio Virtual P-90s, otherwise stock.
I am riding the guitar volume for dynamics as well as for the amount of gain
