Rig Rundown: Widespread Panic

A chilled-out look at the road rigs of guitarists Jimmy Herring and John “JB” Bell, and bassist Dave Schools—32 years after the legendary jam band’s first gig in Athens, Georgia.

Widespread Panic

The rest of School’s pedal feast at Nashville’s Ascend: a Catlinbread SFT Ampeg-voiced overdrive, a Walrus Audio Luminary Quad Octave Generator, EarthQuaker Devices’ The Depths optical vibe, a Catlinbread Echorec, a Caroline Guitar Company Kilobyte Lo-Fi Delay, and, on the floor, a Carl Martin Octa-Switch. He’s also fond of envelope filters, but not for this gig. And Schools uses an Ernie Ball volume pedal to mute before tuning, and a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2 to run his rotating roster of stomps.
