Joel Stroetzel plays guitar along with Adam Dutkiewicz in one of the better heavy bands around, Killswitch Engage. Joel has a relatively simple rig, but it sure does sound good. Joel also plays with Times of Grace.

Let's look at some of the gear and equipment that has been seen in Joel's Killswitch Engage guitar rig.
