Ness' current live setup includes 70s Gibson Les Paul Deluxes (two-goldtops), a '67 Fender Bassman head going through two Marshall 1960B 4x10 cabs. The only pedal in his setup is a Boss SD-1 Overdrive. Wickersham's setup includes original '60s Les Paul Juniors and a '50s Telecaster that run through a Satellite head and two Marshall 4x12 cabs.
As we all know, Mr. Mustaine uses signature Dean Guitars (with 6-on-a-side) and Marshall power amps and cabs. To keep things simple and preventing from a lot of moving pieces that could break down, they both use DigiTech GSP1101 preamp. The only thing different in Chris Broderick's rig is his guitar, he currently is using a Ibanez Prestige. While Broderick preferes the RG series, he's rolling with the Prestige because of the trem system.
Joe walks us through several Gibsons, including his JB model # 001 (which he calms is his favorite), a "Gary Moore" Les Paul, another JB Goldtop model (with traditional white hardware), a cardinal red Firebird and an old Flying V. In addition, he shows off some Ernie Ball models like his Petrucci baritone and Steve Morse loaded with DiMarzios. To top it off, he breaks out a double-neck ... just for good measure!
He demos some of his favorite amp and effect setups including a Way Huge Pork Loin, a Fuzz Face (custom-made by George Tripps), a replica of an old Whirlwind phaser, a BOSS DD-3 Digital Delay, a TS-9 Tube Screamer, a Fulltone Tremolo and a rackmounted TC Electronic TC2290 delay.
In this video segment, Joe shows off his amplifier setup during the 2009 tour. The four amp collection includes a 20 year old custom Bogner Uberschall, a Marshall Jubilee, a JB-100 Carol-Ann (1 of 10) and a Van Weelden Twinkleland, which according to Joe is the only one in the US.
In this segment, John 5 walks us through his current live rig used for the current tour, including his plethora of Fender Custom Shop teles and siganture models, which all feature Dimarzio pickups or a Twisted Tele for the neck spot. He rocks a MINIMAL pedalboard (3 pedals and a wah!) and runs all that through various Marshall heads.
