Isn’t there some mystery/debate about the Wah being a Crybaby or a Teese RMC3 built into a Crybaby shell?
To be completely honest, I wouldn’t be surprised if Teese started this rumor himself.
The RMC3 is supposed to be tunable to “any” wah sound right? So obviously it COULD be a RMC inside that Crybaby, but no. I don’t think it was.
Does everyone really think that Trey is so obsessed with gear, and hiding it from people so they don’t steal his tone, that he actually had someone gut both wahs and switch the guts out? But yet we’ve known for decades it’s been two tubescreamers? A ross compressor? None of that adds up. Especially considering he did a gear tour in 2010…
I kind of figure that when he did that tour, *and was still using this “Crybaby” wah*, he would have mentioned that if it was something special. He didn’t, he says “my wah pedal” and moves right on.
Any insight on what speakers he had in the Bruno back then? I’ve read but never confirmed that they were possibly Celestion Gold. It seems like that would be too much unnecessary power at 50 watts per speaker when just the Deluxe is pushing them. Thoughts? Thanks!
I always heard they were “Tone Tubby Purple Hazes”. Now if only boutique speaker companies would post their frequency spectrum analysis…
A higher watt speaker is used when you want the amp tone replicated “clean & pure” with no speaker distortion.
So a 22w Deluxe pushing a 50w Speaker is a common setup.
I remember the big box was pulled out for a 2.0 song. discern? or something like that
Pretty sure the Nova Repeater wasn’t available in 2003!
Sound like the Pick-ups for this era were different. P90s ?
Maybe I’m just missing it, but what did Trey use for his octive pedal during this time? He used it a lot during that time but I’m just not seeing how he did it.
The Whammy II.
any body have details on the hollowbody? does trey still have it?? last time it was played live??? did someone buy it????
