The pedals, which I believe are really old Italian made effects, are actually no longer on stage but off to the side. At least they weren't last time I looked. He uses a stomp-like pedal box with preprogrammed effects buttons that are patched to the pedals. He made that change several years ago. He talks about it in the Star Licks video and in a coupla other interviews since. Hey, I just double checked his website and apparently this is still the way he does things. Check it out.
