Recently I hung out with Dave Weiner, guitarist for Steve Vai, during the “Story of Light” Tour at the Old National Center in Indianapolis to talk about his gear. Dave has lots of awesome effects, some really great amps, and some really killer guitars! So I wanted to take just a quick minute and run through everything and see what Dave is using on this tour.
When the touring board gets talked about, keep an eye out for the Ego Compressor and the Dual Fusion. Dave likes a “chewier” clean channel and the Ego Compressor allows him the great response and feel that he wants. During this tour, there has been numerous overdrive pedals being put on and off his board– the Dual Fusion as Dave’s consistent “go to” drive pedal.
Check out Dave’s awesome Guitopia site, one of the best guitar teaching sites available!
