Re: help identify old effect
who's got one of these things??? Gotta figure out what the transistors are!  
Everytime I have seen shellac, he's used that silver boos harmonic exciter on stage.  
As far as his guitar sound goes, I'd say it has more to do with a coles 4038 than anything else in his rig.  
As for the bassman, the one in his head is from a blackface, and he's only using the preamp, the power amp for his amp is solid state, you've got it backwards. Well, this is at least what he was doing in shellac in 1994 or so, I think thats the last time I saw them.  
perhaps his tone comes from the fact that he wears his guitar strapped around his waist... Thats about the oddest thing I have ever seen anyone do...
