Noel Gallagher: Pedalboard Oasis

In view of Oasis' recent tour announcements, we thought it would be a good time to look back at Noel Gallagher's set-up for the 2000 Standing on the Shoulders of Giants tour. Gallagher's reliance upon effects pedals has grown significantly since Oasis' recording of the Definitely Maybe album in 1993. At that time, the Oasis guitarist primarily relied upon a Roland RE-01 Space Echo unit and a Jim Dunlop Crybaby Wah Wah pedal. The introduction of Leslie-rotating speaker and backwards guitar effects on the song "Gas Panic!" and "Who Feels Love", respectively, necessitated the follow additions to Gallagher's set-up for the SOTSOG tour.
  • Effects Pedals:
    • an Ibanez TS-9 Tube Screamer pedal;
    • a Jim Dunlop Crybaby 535Q Wah Wah pedal;
    • a Way Huge Electronics Aqua-Puss delay pedal;
    • a SIB Echodrive Digital Delay pedal;
    • a Boss DD-5 Digital Delay pedal - for the reverse guitar effect;
    • a Hughes and Kettner Rotosphere pedal - used on the song "Gas Panic"; and
    • a Boss LS-2 Line Selector pedal.
  • Rack Mounted Effects:
    • a Line 6 Pod Pro Guitar Effects Processor;
    • a Line 6 Echo Pro Studio Modeler;
    • a TC Electronics 2290 Dynamic Digital Delay;
    • a Korg DTR-1 Digital Tuner; and
    • a Furman PL8 Power Conditioner.
  • Amplifiers:
    • a Fender Blues Junior;
    • a Fender Bandmaster head- 60s black-faced head;
    • an Orange Overdrive 120 head;
    • a Vox AC50 head;
    • two Marshall 4X12 Speaker Cabinets - powered by the Orange and Vox heads;
    • a Fender Bandmaster 2X12 Speaker Cabinet; and
    • two THD Electronics Hot Plate Power Attenuators - one for each of the Orange and Vox heads.
Comments and corrections welcome.
