Vai Master Class Pedal Board

#1 Post by Classic 59 » Mon Sep 26, 2011 8:42 am

Does anyone have any pictures of the pedal board Steve Vai is using for his 2011 Master Classes? I know what he uses during an live concert however, I am very interested in knowing what minimal pedals/effects he used for his master classes.

Thank you very much for your time.

From the send out of the back of the main Legacy head
1. that goes into the Little Alligator Volume pedal
2. from there it goes into the Whammy pedal
3. from there it goes into the stereo chorus pedal
4. the stereo outs of the chorus go into the DD-3's
5. the outputs of each DD-3 delay return to each Legacy

Out of the front of the amp
1. the cable goes into the Cry Baby
2. out of the Cry baby it goes into the Jemini
3. out of the Jemini it goes into the guitar

Thanks for the great information :D
muchly appreciated.

I went to an alien guitar secrets awhile ago and I was lucky enough to watch Steve set up and warm up before the session. Stupid me i didn't take any photos except the one with me and him.

Thanks again.
