As with his guitars, the amplifiers and effects Knopfier uses reflect his practical and straight forward approach to music. I try different amps here and there," he says, ,,but at the moment, I'm using a Music Man with two 12" speakers. Also, I use a Morley volume pedal, which I like because it's so dependable, and an MXR analog delay, the little green box: I used it on the beginning of ,Down To The Water Line' [Dire Straits]. And I never use a phaser, or wah-wah pedal, or things of that ilk. My playing is fairly straightforward, really, and everything's pretty much standard no frills or special effects."
