Does anyone know the effect that Steve Vai uses in songs like "Building the Church" and "For the Love of God"?

What pedals that is.
#2
Gonna have to be a little more specific there. Both songs are completely different.
Someones knowledge of guitar companies spelling determines what amps you can own. Really smart people can own things like Framus because they sound like they might be spelled with a "y" but they aren't.

ummm, ok, well, its hard to explain, its kind of delay i guess...... im not really sure thats why im asking.
#4
it's a combination of the right pickups, the carvin amp, no treble and full bass and mids, high gain, delay and reverb and a good set of hands to pull that one off.
#5
Lots of wah are used in both as well

You guys are both wrong

Bogner XTC101B (it's in the back of stage LOL), Ibanez JEM, Ultra Skinny Boney Fingers, ................................. TC Electronics G-Force, the rack which Steve swears by !!!
Tone is all ...... well probably 75%, in your fingers.
The rest depends on your wallet's thickness !!

Keep the faith, baby!!
