Yet MORE new
gear for The Edge.
This reported per U2 Recording site member Jason:
"I just got back from my very first trip to the Chicago Music Exchange. It's a really great vintage
guitar shop only a few miles from my place here in Chicago. Played a bunch of nice 70's strats, LP's and a
got to talking with the owner near the stompbox display. I just happened to look in the case and saw a mint Kay Fuzz, which
is what Edge used on the Elevation intro. Price? $650. Ouch.
Anyway that got us talking about U2. Turns out Dallas
was JUST in the store on Monday. Bought a few interesting items.
Evidently Dallas was so taken with this pedal he talked the shop owner into GIVING it to him!!!
How can you say no when the guy is paying top-dollar for 4 vintage guitars for The Edge??
- 6 string
Rickenbacker 4005 bass (perhaps this is for Adam?)
Rickenbacker - [unknown
Fender Telecaster - vintage - with Bigsby trem
Will be interesting to see how/if
the Kay Trem is used.
Dallas told the shop owner that they have an arsenal of like 10 of those old Kay Fuzz pedals.
Odd since it's only used on ONE song."
DIVIDED by THIRTEEN? NEW AMP for THE EDGE !
It seems that The Edge is experimenting with some new amps. Fred from DIVIDED BY THIRTEEN tells me that
The Edge has acquired a JRT 9/15 + 1x12 amp. Even after 25+ years of U2's recording history, The Edge is still an inovator
and still seeking new sounds, new tones and new equipment to inspire him to make the music that inspires so many of us.
