    Thats pretty much what he uses. The MXR ZW-44 is similar to the SD-1 but less harsh and less noisy.

    He runs it all into a modded JCM800 2203 (I think) he doesnt use them JCM800 2203ZW stacks you see onstage


    EDIT: Zakks agressive picking and active pickups will really contribute to his tone.

    I got close to his tone with my JCM900 by cranking the gain and volume on the clean channel, then adding a SD-1 infront with the level dimed and the gain about 8 o clock, using a Les Paul with the ZW pickup set.

    You can get close but you'll never nail his tone. The icing on the cake when it comes to tone is in the fingers.
