Hi,

I will like to know all the effect pedal that used Green Day.

My actual equipment is:
Gibson Les Paul Junior Signature Billie Joe Armstrong
Marshall 1959 SPL
Marshall Cabinet AV

Best Regards

I read an article once where Billie Joe said he doesn't use any effects whatsoever, but that was back in the American Idiot days. Perhaps he's changed, but I don't recall him ever using any effects except for Amp Overdrive/Distortion. Maybe a volume pedal.
I can only listen to so many breakdowns and "spoken word" vocals before I wanna puke.

I find Jennette McCurdy attractive, but Elizabeth Gillies and Debby Ryan much more so.

That's enough, Djent people. We get it.

But for example in Boulevard of Broken Dreams he uses a pedal for the intro of the song. Which one is?

The effect you're thinking of is a tremelo, and it was prolly from the amp.

I hate you. I would kill for that guitar. I have no idea what he uses, but I have a Boss Metal Zone and it can get pretty green day sounding.

according to M theory gravity might be a stronger force from another dimension leaking into ours and its weaker here


in what ****ing dimension is your mt-2 coming from to sound like green day?
#10
^ This.

There's a tremolo and a wah on Boulevard of Broken Dreams, wah on Restless Heart Syndrome, an EQ pedal to cut out certain frequencies to get those radio-y tones at the start of songs such as Homecoming and East Jesus Nowhere, you might want an overdrive or boost for solo parts but apart from that you're pretty well set already.

Well in my experience, even though it's called a metal zone, it works brilliant for punk and grunge music.

Person with a Gibson and Marshall plexi reissue wants to know what effects to use to play Green Day through it.


Troll?

Better yet, maybe this guy actually IS Billie Joe.

Oh. At first, I thought the guy just messed up the Les Paul anagram. Guess not...

It seems that he uses a Line 6 DL4 for Boulevard of Broken Dreams. For what I saw in the video they posted earlier, he mainly uses the distortion/overdrive from his amp and sometimes the Boss Blues Driver

The DL4 is a delay pedal, pretty sure you can't use it as a tremolo. Anyway... Jason's guitar tech said for the most part the intro for Boulevard has been a backing track since they've been having trouble sync'ing the timing. (and that that track is the only track they use... )
