They play with screwdrivers and maybe some sort of tremolo kind of thing. I don't think so though. I've tried to do it, and it took me a while to figure out, but the closest I came to recreating it was with a screwdriver and a lot of reverb and really clean distortion.
what do they do with the screwdriver?
