UPDATED: September 10, 2013
Slash is perhaps of the most iconic guitarists still active today. His being still active today is a testament to his abilities; not only is he one of the world’s greatest lead rock guitarists, but he has enough songwriting ability to have a few solo ventures under his belt. In front of every great guitarist is a great pedalboard, and the Slash pedalboard is no different.

The Slash pedalboard has remained fairly stable over the years, except for big changes that have been noted in the last few years, during his solo career.
CURRENT: Slash’s 2012 Pedalboard
This is the latest pedalboard we could find. Very similar to his 2010 pedalboard, however.
And now, a look at past pedalboards…
Slash’s Guns N Roses Pedalboard
The first Slash pedalboard list consists of what has been used during his Guns N’ Roses years, though much of this has been kept through his Slash’s Snakepit years. There are varying accounts to exactly what edition of each pedal had been used on the Slash pedalboard, though it is also perhaps due to Slash changing the edition as well.
|Pedal||DD-5 Digital Delay||GE-7 Equalizer||535Q Crybaby Wah Pedal||Heil Talk Box|
|Notes||For Solo Boosts||Used on Mr. Brownstone and Civil War||Used on Anything Goes, Dust And Bones|
|Alternative?||Boss DD-7 Digital Delay||Available New||Available New||Available New|
Slash’s Velvet Revolver Pedalboard
The next Slash pedalboard consists of effects used during his Velvet Revolver years; in fact, it remains intact except for the addition of two new toys, most notably the octave, which will become essential as time moves on.
|Pedal||DD-5 Digital Delay||GE-7 Equalizer||535Q Crybaby Wah Pedal||Heil Talk Box||OC-2 Octave||FSK-401 Sustainer Pickup Kit|
|Notes||For Solo Boosts|
|Alternative?||Boss DD-7 Digital Delay||Available New||Available New||Available New||Boss OC-3 SUPER Octave||Available New|

|Alternative?||Available New||Available New||Discontinued||Boss OC-3 SUPER Octave|
Slash’s 2010 Pedalboard
This pedalboard is based on accounts from 2010, though much of these pedals have also been revealed on the Dunlop/MXR website. In fact, nearly the entire Slash pedalboard of this time had been somewhat sponsored by MXR, including the signature Slash Wah, which unlike other artists with signature pedals, Slash actually uses it.
Slash Pedal Settings
From Adam Day, Slash’s guitar tech:
The E.Q. is basically just set as an upside down smile, meaning the mid-range is boosted, fading off at the high end.
Normal Delay settings:
- Level: 9.30 o’clock
- Feedback: 10 o’clock
- Delay time: 10 o’clock
- Mode: 800ms
Slither Delay Settings:
- Level: 11 o’clock (sometimes 12 o’clock)
- Feedback: 13 o’clock
- Delay time: 13 o’clock
- Mode: 800ms
