Guitars
Hinson brings a duo of his Reverend signature model guitars on the road with him. The guitar is based off of the Reverend 290 Club King, a semi-hollow guitar with two P-90 pickups, Bass Contour control, maple neck and fretboard with bat inlay, and locking tuners. The two guitars are identical other than the headstock veneer. Hinson says he prefers the P-90s because they can clean up and twang or get fat for more rock tones.

Amps
He plugs into a Fender Super-Sonic 100 head and 2x12 cabinet.

Effects
For pedals, Hinson keeps it simple with a Vox ToneLab LE. He uses it as a Volume pedal as well as chorus, overdrive, and tremolo. He prefers this unit because it's all-in-one and easy to travel with.

An overachieving overdrive that gets way bigger than its name suggests.

Sweet balanced crunch tones. Dynamic. Sparkling, full, and clean at attenuated guitar volume. High-quality build.

Pretty expensive.

Overdrive pedals don’t often set my world alight—even great ones. But I’ve spent a month with the England-built Great Eastern FX Small Speaker Overdrive, and it remains attached to the other end of my coil-y cable. Ostensibly, the Small Speaker is meant to be a variation on the tweed-Fender-Champ-in-a-box theme. However, both the pedal’s name and the Champ associations fail to do justice to how large and alive it sounds and feels tethered to a bigger amp.
