Jeff plays on 0,011" - 0,048" Ernie Ball strings, tuned a half step low. His vibrato bar is set up for a pull-up of a whole tone on the high E string, the back edge of the bridge plate being about 1/4" above the body in rest position. His lower tone control is wired to work on the bridge and middle pickups. Jeff plays through a Snarling Dogs wah-wah and a Marshall JCM2000 DSL50 amp with a 4 x 12" (Celestion "Greenbacks") speaker cabinet. He also uses two 2 x 12" Marshall wedge monitors at front of stage, driven by a DSL50 power amp. Delay and reverb effects are added at the mixer. Beck does everything else with his bare hands.
