Not sure either what all he uses, mostly the red fender. Occasionally you see something different, especially when he plays close to home. He has one that is painted like a zipper that is pretty cool.

Brad emailed me his Ozzy-era gear list once, and from what I remember he was using Boogie cab(s) with mkII (?) head(s) with a digital delay, while his tech also had a remote for lead on/off in case Brad was away from his pedal board during solos. I think his Strat is a '62, and I think the neck is a different year with an added fret, and PJ Marxx pickups. The Yahoo group should have more details, and perhaps he was using Boogie combos during recording, at least from few intereviews I've read.
On the SOTD video, you can see a Marshall cabinet off to the side of the stage, as well as his black-sunburst (black/red?) Strat (for Eb songs), and Les Paul with a Floyd Rose for Paranoid.

I hope that ties you over for a bit until we get the complete list. lol

Look for Brad's guitar instruction video on emule or kazaa, he goes pretty in depth about his equipment on that video...

i think the guy who listed his equipment earlier was right on the nose-but i think he used more than a digital delay for the pedal board-you can definitely hear different sounds on the live speak album-he did get a excellent sound-i dig this speak album-excellent for the covers of sabbath-top notch i say--------------------------------
Thanx jaymz 1968
