Rig Rundown: Revocation & Gargoyl's Dave Davidson

He fronts two menacing bands with his “Ferrari-like” signature Jackson, but he’s also got a soft spot for his vintage ES-335.

Davidson has played through countless amps including original Pitbulls and 5150s (from the other company), but for almost as long as he’s been with Jackson, he’s been rocking EVH heads. Of course, this beast roars, and he loves to riff in the red channel, but what sold Davidson on it was the complexity, liveliness, and warmth packed into the clean channel.

He’s played through 100-watt stacks onstage and used the 6L6 variants, but for his at-home setup he’s been spending some quality time with the above EVH 5150 III 50W EL34 head and matched 2x12 cab. (For those keeping score at home, Davidson loves both tube setups, but he prefers the “modern sounding” EL34 head for Gargoyl and goes with the 6L6 for Revocation.)
