I've admired his tone and playing for a bit, but always wondered what he's using. I know he's a 335 fan, but what about the amps and pedals. He has a real unique tone/sound..
Cheers/Thanks!

Pretty sure he used a AC30. Don’t know about pedals.

I saw them back in the 90s on their reunion tour. As to be expected, it didn’t capture an ounce of their glory days. Eddie was using a super Strat with a Zoom multi-effects pedal. Lots of shreddy, extended solos too. Singer did this really campy bit, where he spray painted a giant canvas during “Painter Man”. 😑

This might help a bit.

I remember reading that Jimmy Page really enjoyed The Creation. I wouldn't be surprised if he borrowed the idea of using the bow from Eddie.
