As part of our coverage of this year’s Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival — currently winding its way through North America — we’re bringing you a series of “Rigged” columns in which several of the tour’s musicians take you on piece-by-piece guides of their current live rig setups. Check out what Machine Head’s Phil Demmel had to say about his super-sweet rig last week. Here’s Unearth’s Buz McGrath:

Greetings! Let’s have a look at the rig I’m using on this year’s Mayhem Festival.

The guitars: two ESP Horizon NT 7 seven-string guitars and two ESP Horizon FR-7 seven-strings:

I use the Samson UR-5D wireless. This is an older unit and has been discontinued, but I’ve stuck with it because it’s performed great for me over the years.

My pedal chain is a pretty standard set-up. Boss tuner to Ibanez tube screamer to Boss NS-2 noise gate:

I use the EVH 5150 III as my main amp. This is the head I have been using live for the past two years. Chris Cannella is my dude at EVH and they take great care of me.

I’m giving the Engl Powerball a test drive, which you can see in the above pic as the lower head. Sounds pretty sick so far.

These days I’m using the EVH 4×12 cabs for the first time. They sound awesome!!!

Thanks, everyone. See you out on the road!
