    Might be a filter or a pitch shift. I’d rather use my foot for that, but maybe it’s part of the performance.

    That’s what expression pedals are for haha. But there can only be so much room on a pedalboard, hard to fit those fatties. Definitely pitch shifter because at points you can here it come back to the key they’re playing in. Probably a little phased running in there too somewhere.

    Bring hair metal back!

    Yup you guys are right. I think it’s part of the show too. I re-watched several times and looks like she is tweaking at least 2 different knobs maybe 3. I found a video where she goes thru her pedal board (on Reverb) and she has a Pog and a long delay pedal and she said she likes to tweak the delay especially to get the outer space sounds.

    She seems to have a bunch of these live videos up from her current tour. All of them are amazing. In fact it’s like one of the tightest stage shows ever. Her tour manager/guitar tech is switching her guitars over her neck even while she is singing vocal runs. She’s tweaking her guitar knobs for amazing dynamic range also while singing these crazy runs. just amazingly tight transitions. Cant imagine how much work they put into stage rehearsing and charting out all the changes. More pro than many pro’s!
