I think with Sunn o))) it's definitley more about the amps than the effects pedals. Sunn head units (hence the band name) give a really distinct, growl-like tone. The 3 or 4 times i've seen them they usually have about 14 cabinets and about 10 sunn heads with the treble turned off and the low-end turned up. I never really noticed any pedals but then it's hard to see as they fill the stage with so much smoke! I think they produce their sound through just having such a large amount of amps and sunn heads and just turning it up really fucking loud.

I might be wrong though!

Not sure if it's live or studio setup, but I know that Greg has a Buzz Box in the mix and O'Malley uses a Zvex Super Hard-On. It's all about the Model-T amps though.

From 2004 interview with O'Malley:
What are your current rig setups?
The current Sunn O))) live rigs are as follows (ideally):
MYSTIK KLIFF MACABRE: 2 Sunn O))) Model T heads + 2 4x12s
MK ULTRA B: Sunn O))) PS-20 Beta Preamp & Carvin 1204 poweramp + 2 x 4x12s:
DAWN))): Ampeg 800 watt bass amp + 8x10 & 2x15
REX: Korg midi Controller, PC Laptop, Ampeg 800 watter + 8x10
We also try to use the PA as an instrument as much as possible.

And Les Pauls right?
Greg has a gold top, I use a Silverburst.
Dawn uses a Jazzmaster 3/4 scale bass, I think.

What pedals do you use? I noticed a few
Currently I'm using a Electroharmonix Holy Grail, DOD Overdrive & Line 6 Delay modeler.
Greg is using Rat, Buzz Box, Morley AB
Dawn uses a volume controller and Big Muff.

The Khanate rig?
I use 3 x Sunn O))) Model Ts + 3 x 4x12s, Travis Bean 1200s, Holier Grail, Rat, DOD Overdrive, Morley AB.
James uses Ampeg 2 & 8x10 and a Kramer bass with the inlayed aluminum neck.
And of course they downtune their guitars alot.

some of the stuff is a mystery, but i can make out:
boss tuner
earnie ball volume pedal
zvex superhard on thingy
akia headrush
i think a electro harmonix small stone and maybe a big muff

is the bottom left a blue box?
and no idea what the top left is? anyone know?

going by this article(which came out before black one)

http://s10.photobucket.com/albums/a147/ ... =984-1.jpg

i would guess the e/h pedal you thought was the small stone is actually a holy grail. and the pedal on the upper left i'd assume was this
bluebeard bass distortion, though i can't find any pictures of one, and the guy who runs the company only has a myspace site(again no pictures of pedals)

and what you thought was a big muff might actually be a rehoused rat. this article says he uses a rat(and most geetarists are usually gungho about the rat or the big muff,usually not both). and the knobs look relativly rat like. but i would guess that was a bluebox as well. [/url]

Ive seen Sunn O))) live twice and I made it a point to look at their gear both times.

It's a relatively simple setup; Vintage Ampeg bass heads, Marshall Jcm 900 guitar heads, Sunn Model T guitar heads Ampeg, Sunn & Marshall speaker cabinets (about 15 or 16), Line 6 Delay unit on the bass guitar, and lots of new and old Ratt pedals strung together, almost like The Rita's approach, and lots of line selectors to send the signals out to all the amps. Eq pedal, I think Boss can't remember; Guitars. That's all they use. They kinda let the amps play themselves. Moog Synth.

Actually I believe the first time I saw them was around 2006, long before I wasted any of my time in places like this.

oh yeah, well, that's just like your opinion, man.

By the way, I'm aware of the irony of appearing on noiseguide forum in order to decry it, so don't bother pointing that out.
