Lives for gear

It's in all probability not about pedals at all. I can't speak to Carlos's recordings but I am aware of how dedicated he is to live technique and live, he really only ever uses a buffered wah (buffered in providing a high Z input to properly load pickups much like a tube input stage does) with the single exception of extremely rare use of a delay. Carlos counts on, Hell! demands!, a tube amp turned up loud with moderately high preamp gain but the capability o drive the power section pretty hard. His main "effect" is his touch and his guitar Volume control.
