Rory talking about his effects

Found an article from Raw magazine (rock magazine from the late 80s) in which Rory talks about the effects he uses on stage.

"Yes, I still tend to use the Strat most of the time, although I've had to have everything on the guitar redone because I've played it out. I have a 57 Strat as prime back up. Actually, I'm starting to use the 57 model a lot more these days because it allows me to be a bit more precise".

"Gadget wise I have a DOD analog delay, which is just a real old-fashioned thing with 3 knobs on. I also have a little booster on the Vox because I don't use the brilliant input on the Vox amp, I just use the normal input.

I also have some gadgets out front, although I'm still very wary of them. I'd say that 95% of the time I play straight through the amps. I do have a Boss Octave unit, which is nice for slide work. I also use a Dynacomp sound compressor, that is on almost all the time, to cater for the long guitar lead wire that I use, this acts as a signal booster as much as anything else.

I also use an old Ibanez Tube Screamer for my more manic solos, but it tends to be more of a tone boost rather than a fuzz unit. My last bit of equipment is a Boss Flanger, used very rarely to pad things out in a couple of places".

Is there a picture of Rory's pedal board? I know there are some pedals visible in footage from the early 80's onwards - looks like 3 or four units - just wondered if there are any pics of the set up showing the order they are wired in etc.

Wouldn't Tom know about that? He was the main guy wasn't he, to set up Rory's gear before a show. Now there's a man who could write a book about Rory that I would love to read! (Still waiting on Donal's, but writing a book isn't all that easy)
