We go over the semi-filling, arena-rocking loads of gear that John Shanks, Phil X, and Hugh McDonald brought on the road to support This House Is Not for Sale.

Phil X tours with a trifecta of rocking heads starting with his signature Friedman 100-watt, single-channel head that is loosely based on the Brown Eye but allows Phil to cut the gain. The amp’s overall tone is less compressed, and Phil requested a second master so he could boost his solos at smaller shows in clubs.
