Amplification: 2 x Bogner Shiva heads; 1 felt-covered 2×12 cab; Leslie G-37 rotating speaker. 1 combo amp for the hourglass jam (blackface-style; un-ID’d).
Floor pedals: Boss OC-2; Beigel Soundlabs Tru-Tron 3x; CAE RS-10 Audio Switcher; Boomerang; presumably the Whammy II is down there, as well, though I don’t have a shot of it.
Rack pedals: 2xTS-9 (one is clearly Analogman); Way Huge Supa Puss; H&K Tube Factor; Shin-Ei Uni-Vibe. There’s an Alesis Microverb underneath the Supa-Puss.
Rack (from top): Furman PL-PRO DMC E Power Conditioner, Korg DTR-2 Tuner, Ibanez DM-2000, TC Electronic D-Two, 3 x CAE 4×4.
Here are the Shivas (one may be backup), the 2×12, and the G-37. The Ibanez DM-2000 is third unit from the top in the rack and the TCE D-Two is directly below it. The top two units are a tuner and a power conditioner.
A nice, clear screengrab from the LivePhish feed of the rack. The blue pedal is clearly a Way Huge Supa Puss. Nice views of the Uni-Vibe and H&K, as well. Also a clear look at some of the floor pedals, including (from left): Boss OC-2, Tru-Tron, CAE, and Boomerang. Presumably the rack is blocking the Whammy II, as Trey doesn’t leave home without it.
In this screengrab of the rack rig, you can clearly make out an Analogman “Sunface” on one of the two Tubescreamers. The H&K is the wedge shaped pedal that is facing us sideways. Behind it is the Uni-Vibe and counterclockwise from those two is the Supa Puss. The Supa Puss is distinguishable from the Aqua Puss because the Supa has the second footswitch for tap tempo. Though it’s often obscured due to its positioning, this shot gives us a pretty clear look at the Alesis Microverb I sitting underneath the Supa-Puss.
Above are 2 screengrabs from the “Hourglass Jam.” In the second, you can see the combo amp (left) Trey used the hourglass jam. At his feet, you can see (from his left) another Tru-Tron (white), an OC-2 above it, the Whammy II, and 2 TS-9s. At his far right in the bottom capture above is the first bit of his Boomerang and on top of that is a pedal I’ve yet to ID. Trey has a stand on his right with another Way Huge Supa Puss that he tweaked during the jam as well as what appears to be a Boss TU-2. Watch Trey tweak the Supa-Puss and get results right here.
From behind Trey, you get a better look at the Boomerang on the floor to his right and the mystery pedal above it. You can also see the back of the blackface style combo, which appears to have a single 12″ speaker off-center.
Can you tell us anything about the mods to the Aqua Puss? Seems like an extra footswitch and front jack added.
Interesting; yes I see it now. Not sure what that’s about but I’ll see what I can find out.
So given the second switch, I’d say this is a Supa-Puss rather than an Aqua-Puss. The cable in front appears to just be reaching to the battery compartment. Thanks for the feedback! Good eye! I’ll update accordingly.
I think he has it modified to utilize an external tap tempo switch. This way he can control it from the floor while keeping the pedal mounted with the others for more tweaking. Analogman work?
Possible, although I’ve got a lot of shots of Trey tweaking the tempo by hand by reaching to the rack. Analogman says the following of his work on the Puss:
“We did some Way Huge SUPA PUSS mods for Trey in 2015, as the BLEND on them comes up too fast, he just wanted a little delay so we found a mod to make it easier to dial in.”
I’ll see if I can get to the bottom of this.
It’s prob the cable for the tap tempo box that would be on the ground so he can tap it with his foot ?
In the final picture of this post the mystery Combo Amp appears to have two 12 inch or 15 inch fender speakers in the cabinet. The blue fender donut style logo gives away their origin. Oddly enough, the cabinet looks more like a matchless Chieftain from the back. (The shape of the lower back removable panel looks very much like is that of an old Matchless.)
This website is fantastic! I could spend days here….lol!
Mystery Pedal above The Boomarang looks like an original Univibe

Do you know if he used the EL-34 or 6L6 shiva?
