Electronics (Studio and Concert)
Here we have an aerial shot of what I look at every day in my studio. This is actually a combination of my concert electronics and my recording looping set-up.
The amplifiers I am using are all based on the older Fender tube amp designs (Blackface and Tweed, as well as the Dumble style amps.) These amps use the 6L6-style power tubes, which is the sound I prefer. From left to right they are the Carr Rambler, the Brown Note D’Lite 44, and the Red Plate CD2. These are all called combo amps with one 12-inch speaker each.
Though there are literally thousands of pedals available on the market, after a lot of testing, I have settled on a selection of gain, overdrive, modulation and delay pedals from an assortment of boutique companies. (Itemized list to come.) The larger pedalboard on top is the one I am currently on tour with along with the volume pedal/tuner (lower left in photo.) This board is controlled by the button strip at its bottom, custom designed by GigRig in the UK.
