Dan Auerbach, guitarist for the Black Keys, has brought a breath of fresh air to the Blues. Being only one of two musicians on stage, Dan relies a lot on effects to have his guitar cover more ground. He is noted for saying that he owns over 100 pedals. With so many pedals, the Dan Auerbach pedalboard seems to be changed often, with pedals rotating in and out.
Looking at the list of pedals he employed through the years, you can tell at what is important for him: Fuzz, Tremolo and Delay. He also doesn’t seem to favor a particular pedal, as they seem to get replaced fairly often. Even when they aren’t replaced, you might also see a different pedal next to it offering the same effect.
