The pedal next to the Whammy is just a cut off switch if I'm not mistaken, he had 3 made for him by someone, analogman or something to that affect and he did use them in the stripes although I have see pictures of that same board with out the cut off on it.

Patrick is playing ....

Thank you!

Jack's other electric seems to be the Airline version of the pre-Resoglass Supro/National Val Trol.

Thank you!

Just an observation-

Thanks but if they're not using it live it's not really relevant.

I haven't noticed the POG being used at all in the Raconteurs. It's on the pedalboard but so far it appears to have gone unused.

The micro amp and the tuner are on the board and the other pedal is just a cut-off/kill switch and he DOES use it (or at least a different colored one) in the White Stripes.

I'm still leaning towards a PS-5 for Benson's pedal, mainly because it has the white lettering on it.

Doesn't that look closer? The only problem I see is that Benson's pedal looks like the knobs have a gray top to them which not all Boss pedals have, then again that might be a trick of light.

Edit-I'm actually haveing second thoughts on that myself now. A list of all Boss Pedals with pictures might just help us out. Pretty cool site to boot.

the cut off switch is a custom made one by Analog Man, he's got 3 of them, a red one, white one, and red/white swirl one. they are at 3 different locations on stage. i think its one at his main microphone, the marimba and maybe one at the other microphone by meg, or the organ

Just an observation-

In the "Steady As She Goes" video, at approximately 3:52 (right when they strike the final chord), there is a National Glenwood (map-shaped resoglass) guitar visible behind Jack, up against a wall, and some sort of resonator or acoustic to the left of Jack Lawrence. I unfortunately don't know how to post screen captures. If someone else can, I would very much appreciate it.

Posted Image

They had a spare guitar at the Glasgow show which looked as though it was white. I presume it was a backup in case one of the other guitars broke. The guitar tech tuned it before the gig and it was sitting offstage just behind Little Jack during the show. The guitar on the left of the screenshot might fit that description.

The acoustic on the right doesn't look familiar though ...

I seem to recall that Brendan was using a sans amp DI box when playing the acoustic guitar. I think you can make it out in the corner of this picture (if you crank the brightness a bit!).

Posted Image

Its probably the Para or Acoustic DI:

Oh, I almost forgot Little Jack, I'm pretty sure he uses a Boss TU-2 and an EHX English Muff'n.

I think the acoustic in the video is the Gibson L-1 that Jack has used live on the GBMS tour?

A couple more thoughts after watching the Astoria DVD...

Jack plays the 3 pickup airline (as seen in the steady as she goes video) during steady as she goes... the one over by Dean Fertita is still visible so there's more than one of these

Dean Fertita also plays an acoustic guitar during House Is Not A Motel... any ideas what make?

I know Dean isn't *in* the band but it's all part of the overall sound, ie that kickass overdriven organ thing used in store bought bones, who knows what that is? It sounds amazing, i want a sample bank of one!!

Battery operated magnet that you place over your strings above the pickup, it vibrates the string indefinitely, and then with your fretting hand you can slide around and get violin and synth type sounds. You can only sustain one string at a time though which is a little disappointing. I think Dimarzio came out with a pickup that you put in the neck position that does the same thing. I owned an Ebow a while back, never got much use so I sold it for a pedal hah. Cool thing though to mess around with from time to time.

Yeah there's a Fender Rhodes there... but there's also a couple of other keyboards I can't identify, one on top of the rhodes, and the other at 90 to it (which is the store bought bones one)

I'll have to rewatch, you could well be right about the hummingbird (not hummbingbird ;) )

Ah yes!! I've heard some really incredible sounds come from that thing. One of the guitarists from a band I know called Me Without You uses one. Some of you might not like their music because it's too "emo" or whatever. It's labled as post hardcore, but there's nothing hardcore about it other than the fact that the lead singer yells his lyrics more than he sings them. But it's not screaming.

Their Purevolume Page

Very different kind of music if you can keep an open mind.

Sorry :offtopic:

Bensons' guitar looks like a Guild Aristocrat, probably from the mid to late 50's. The black knob on the 'horn' isn't stock. It could be a master volume control, or possibly some type of rotary switch. Here's a picture for comparison... http://www.lucchesiv...roducts/1_0.jpg


I'd like to add that I've seen a couple of pictures of Brendan Benson (Pre Raconteurs) using a red Guild Aristocrat with the same master volume modification, so he may be using more than one with The Raconteurs.
