Only a select few have the cash necessary to recreate the rig of their favorite musician. Still, If you’re looking at getting a similar sound, it’s a good idea to start with pedals.
One who’s rig is very complex is Trey Anastasio of Phish. In honor of their reunion tour, I will be profiling what has become his standard set-up.
An integral part of Trey’s sound are his Ibanez Tube Screamers. (That’s right, Screamers, pluralized). This trick, used by many guitarists, is to set up two of the same distortion pedals one before the other. Each Trey Anastasio Tube Screamer would have different settings, allowing for one to be used “cleaner” while the other to be used to kick the sound during solos.

The Trey Anastasio Tube Screamer is a “Silver” modified TS-09 version of the Tube Screamer. The TS-09 is the more “collectible” of the versions, although many other versions are available, which can be more affordable than a “Trey Anastasio Tube Screamer”.
