U2 Guitar Tutorials



I've had a little site for a while now, since 2005-06. Here you can find some info on delaytimes, guitars and tunings used by The Edge. You can find some backingtracks and listen to recordings from members of the now deleted U2 Recording Yahoo Group. A closer look on the CAE switcher here



CAE RST-40 Midi Foot Controller
Boss tuner
Kay Fuzz/Rab Fuzz
Digitech Whammy-1
Boss FV-type volume/expression pedal
Dunlop volume/expression pedal
Mission expression pedal 
2 pedals to start/stop sequences/backingtrack


The Edge's current rig, at least as it was when Bob Bradshaw of CAE shared it on Facebook in April 2015. Thanks Bob! Although it seems he had to remove it, I wonder who told him to do that. He and Fractal Audio have said that he will use both amps and amp modelling. The TC2290 is just for A/B testing with the Axe FX. Some confirmed and non-confirmed gear:

Furman Power Conditioner
Korg tuner
4 x Fractal Audio Axe FX 2 normal and XL. All 4 in use. #1 and #2 main units. #3 for shimmer and #4 for TC2290 type delays and some crunch tones according to Bradshaw.
Line6 DM4 Pro
Korg Sdd-3000 rack version of pedal
Universal Audio UA2-610 Dual Channel Tube Amplifier

Pedal trays (unconfirmed list):
Boss Cs-2
Skrydstrup Bufferooster
Eventide H9
Diamond Vibrato (purple pedal)
Ibanez TS-9
Vemuram Shanks (According to Edo, Bob said this is gone now)
Malekko Vibrato (small yellow pedal)
Digitech Synth Wah
Digitech DL-8 Delay (just a placeholder according to Bradshaw)
Digitech Hardwire Looper or Reverb?
Pigtronix Rototron
Black pedal of some sort (Edo said this is a filter according to Bob)

Boss FA-1 and DBA Harmonic Transformer still in rack according to Bradshaw.
