Digitech Whammy II
James began using a Digitech Whammy II in his live setup starting with the touring for MCIS. In an April 1996 interview with "Guitar School" magazine, Billy states "...there is a bunch of Whammy on the record. James uses a Whammy for his solo in Zero."
James also said the following in a December 1995 interview with The Guitar Magazine (TGM) magazine "We tried to be a bit more obtuse, varied, and interesting. Like on XYU I was using a whammy pedal and I kept getting these intermittent breakups-like dang-dan-dan-dan-dang-dan-dan-dan-dang-fllllplplplplplsh! You just step on the pedal and it destroys the sound! It's like a tape machine going haywire or something."
