Though the pedals lay out out a bit differently here and there, the rig appears to remain stable through much of 2013, and summer tour looks a lot like fall/Halloween.

A bit grainy at this zoom, but in this SPAC shot (7-6-13) you can clearly make out the Mark III Long Head atop the Shiva Combo with the un-covered 2×12 speaker.  Behind that is the SWR solid state and the vintage Goff Leslie.  The rack is behind and to the left of the amplification, and has no pedals atop it.

bogner switches
Here are the footswitches that control the Bogner Shiva.

TB switches
These two True Bypass switches add two loops to the CAE switcher.  The one on the right is a bypass for the TC Electronics Nova Repeater delay + the Whammy.  The one on the left simply says “Rack” and presumably accesses the Alesis reverbs in the rack.

CAE Switches
Here are the CAE switches, and they’re changed from what we’d seen previously.  The top row of switches (which all control the DM2000 is all the same.  But below it, DIJ/CRAP is gone in favor of BOOM/TREM.  The UNIVIBE loop is in the same spot, but the “MICRO” loop is gone, lending credence to the theory that the “RACK” switch above controls the Microverb.

rack and amps gorge 13
Here’s a good look at the rack, amps, and speaker.  From top, the rack includes the Furman power conditioner, Korg Tuner, Ibanez DM2000, Black cat vibe + Trem, and Alesis Nanoverbs and Microverb.

This is 7-5-13 at SPAC, and you can see the pedal array stays fairly consistent with Fall 2013.  Later in the year, the Boomerang would move in closer to the CAE for more of a fortress-like appearance from the pedals.  But it’s all here. The Ross is more clearly visible without the ‘Rang blocking it.

This shot from Bangor (7-3-13) shows the Victoria Reverberato, an external reverb and tremolo unit (left) up against the rack.  This also appeared in the January 2016 Guitar World photos (discussed here).
