he uses an crybaby. il look up which one

he uses a custom one in a ernie ball pedal body

EFFECTS

1. Dunlop Crybaby Wah-Wah pedals - modified (dunlop electronics enclosed in ernie ball volume pedal bodies)
Roland VG-8
EMB Audio Remote Wah units
EMB/Ernie Ball Wah Pedals - custom
Multiple Foot Pedals Custom Rackmount
Rocktron RSB-18F pedal boards
Ibanez Tube Screamer
Bradshaw Switching System
Bradshaw Patch Bay Custom
Lovetone Meatball pedal (for the Wah like sound in the opening riff of "I Disappear")

that would be the effects. and for guitars. alot. and pickups. emg 81/81 or 81/60/ I Think

he uses a crybaby in a Ernie Ball volume pedal case. As for distortion, he used Mesa's slaved in Marshall's, then used the pre-amp's from the marshalls?

I am pretty sure a single Tubescreamer and an EQ won't get enough gain/the right tone for Kirk. If you meant he used them to boost his amp's dist channel, then yes, you could be correct.

He has a signature amp head made by Randall. His name is also on a smaller SS practice amp (meh...).

i belive he uses the rackmounted crybaby wah nowerdays. In terms of amps, its mostly triaxis stuff, but in recent videos you see his rectifier preamp lying in there, always a marshall too. You can sometimes see his signature randall sitting on top of his rack, dunno if he uses it. But generally, i think he gets his tone from a triaxis, oh and 'Big Mick' thier live sound engineer, and many thousands worth of recording and processing equipment in the studio :P

When you guys are done arguing about kirks distortion perhaps you can read the OP where he asks about kirks WAH

something like a 535q crybaby would work for kirk hammett's wah tone
