Hello and welcome to Trabantland…

This site is a place to collect and share some of what I’ve learned over the years in the search for U2-inspired guitar tones and the technology behind it.  Mainly it is focused on electronics projects.

Cheers and  I hope you enjoy your visit!

If you have any questions you can contact me through the form below.

Pricing information for pedals can be found at my commercial website: www.dts-art.com

Best Regards,

    I have the FA-1, TC dual band parametric which really gets me close. What is Edge’s effects chain that he used for Joshua tree? do you know???

      Hi Alex,

      He uses different guitars and effect chains for different songs – it’s not the same for the whole album. If I had to, I’d guess most of that album was recorded using the Korg SDD-3000 delay. (It doesn’t sound much like the Electro-Harmonix Memory Man to me, and 1986 is probably too early for the TC2290). Tone-wise, you can’t go wrong with a Stratocaster into SDD-3000 into a Vox AC30.

    Hey Dave,
    what’s the current draw for the SDD-3KP and for the FA-2 respectively?

    Hi Dave,

    i order my pedal on last December.
    Is there a different between the sound on the new 2012 model?



    • trabantland says:

      Hi Chris, No the circuit inside is the same as your pedal. The changes on the 2012 version are cosmetic.

      Best Regards,
