Yngwie Malmsteen is currently in the midst of his Parabellum tour promoting his latest studio album, and the Swedish speed demon recently took time out during a soundcheck to showcase his current pedalboard setup.

It’s a Boss-heavy rig, controlled by the brand’s ES-8 Effects Switching System, which is used by Malmsteen to recall eight of his most-used live tones.
