Halloween was the culmination of a fall tour in 2013, so the rig appears to remain fairly stable through the fall tour and the AC shows.
Amplifiers: Mark III Long Head, Bogner Shiva Combo, single 2×12 un-covered Languedoc cab. SWR solid state amplifier. Vintage Leslie rotating speaker.
Floor pedals: Goff Trek II Leslie Controller, CAE Switcher, Whammy II, TCE Nova Repeater, 2x TS-9, Wah, Ross Compressor, Boomerang, Tremolo control, Teleprompter control.
Rack pedals: n/a
Rack: Furman Power Conditioner, Korg DTR-2 Tuner, blank space, Ibanez DM-2000, CAE Black Cat Vibe/Super Tremolo.
In this shot from 11-1, you can see the Mesa Long head on top of the Shiva, with the 2×12 to the side of them. Behind the 2×12 is the mysterious SWR solid state. Behind all that is the vintage Leslie. Note the rack is out of reach and no pedals are on it. The Fulltone and Uni-Vibe are not yet introduced.
A nice angle on Trey’s pedals. From left: Goff Trek II Leslie Controller, CAE Switcher, Whammy II, TCE Nova Repeater, Wah, 2x TS-9, Ross Compressor, Boomerang, Tremolo speed control. The three-piece pedal on the extreme right, which also showed up at Fare Thee Well, is a controller for Trey’s Teleprompter. You can see the prompter screen in between Trey’s two monitors. You can also see Trey tapping these pedals to scroll through the monitor here. (Extra special thanks to TGR reader Brandon H for pointing this out!).
This is a good shot from 10-26-13 in Worcester, MA, that makes pretty clear that the right-most expression pedal controls the tremolo speed. It’s marked “Uni-Vibe.”
Above is the rack during the Wombat premiere on 10-31-13. From top, Furman Power Conditioner, Korg DTR-2 Tuner, blank space, Ibanez DM-2000, CAE Black Cat Vibe/Super Tremolo.
Do you know what the teleprompter was used for?
He uses it for lyrics for the newer songs.
Ah now that’s interesting. I always wondered how he could memorize all those lyrics so quickly, I thought he was a mad genius…Wait, he is 🙂 Cool , thanks!
The SWR is a 2×10 bass combo amp that I believe contained Mike’s signal, like the GK and Ampeg amps that have served the same function. Page had one in his too for a while. I’ve also seen Mike using one in backstage practice room shots
Also, the 3-way switcher in front of the Bradshaw controller is for the Bogner (ch. select, reverb, and boost).
Any idea what the electronic unit is strapped to his guitar strap that his guitar seems to be plugged into? Some sort of buffer or line driver? Seems to appear in the 2010-2013 era sporadically
