Go inside one of the hottest pop tours of 2018 and dig deep into the gear that Mike Scott, Elliott Ives, and JT himself take on the road.
Ives runs his guitars into a Shure Axient wireless system that sends the signal to his effects. The signal chain is: Ernie Ball VP Jr. volume pedal, EarthQuaker Devices Palisades overdrive, Dunlop Cry Baby 95Q wah (A second wah is operated by a tech when Elliott’s away from the board.), Decimator rackmount noise-reduction unit, and an Xotic EP Boost. In the effects loop, Ives runs an Eventide ModFactor, an Eventide TimeFactor delay, an EarthQuaker Devices Dispatch Master delay/reverb, and a DigiTech Whammy. The acoustic guitars run into a Shure Axient system and then go to a Boss TU-3W before hitting a Neve RNDI. A Vans Evers power conditioner keeps everything running smooth.
