Say what you will about Jack White’s technique, he is a modern guitar icon. Being known for his two-piece guitar-drum work means he’s working overtime to fill in the bass, guitar and vocals slots.
Jack White’s pedal choices not only contain the essential effects that allow him to fill out the sound, notably with octave effects, but also all match to a certain color scheme! All of his pedalboards follow a color pattern. In the White Stripes, all of the pedals are white or red, similar to his band’s chosen colors. While he seems to favor pedals with those colors, he’ll also paint certain pedals to line up with the palette. The most interesting look however is most certainly his Raconteurs pedalboard, which he had all pedals finished in copper, a service provided by AnalogMan.
Jack White seems to keep relatively the same pedals throughout his bands’ careers. However, it is between his different bands that you will the bigger differences in the Jack White’s pedalboard components.
