Guitars: Sunburst 1943 Martin D-28; this is a new guitar for Trey. 1968 Martin D-35 (natural finish). These guitars would both have Brazilian Rosewood back and sides, given the years of production.
Pickups: Trance Audio stereo transducers (likely the Amulet) mounted inside the guitars and a Sunrise full range magnetic pickup in the soundhole. The Trance and the Sunrise are sent to the Mackey mixer where they are mixed down and sent to the Whammy, Boomerang, Victoria Reverberato, and then to a Radial Direct Box and out to the soundboard.
Floor/effects: Whammy II, Boomerang, Victoria Reverberato, Oatmeal Can. A source involved in the tour production tells me: “[T]here’s a can of Irish oatmeal out there as a foot rest. It’s the only thing that works. We tried all the professional foot rest models.”
This passage from “Theme” in Northampton (3/8) gives you an idea of the mild tremolo Trey is getting from the Victoria Reverberato; he engages it by clicking the Fender-style reverb/tremolo pedal just as the video begins.
In this passage from “Frost” in Northampton (3/8), Trey samples his rhythm track using the Boomerang and then solos over it; he’s also using the tremolo and probably the reverb as well. It’s a beautiful overall sound.
This solo section from “Stealing Time” in Northampton (3/8) has Trey using the tremolo for his rhythm part, which he samples to the Boomerang. He then uses the Whammy II for his solo, including the octave/harmonizer feature and the pitch bender.
The “46 Days” from Portsmouth (3/11) included an extended Boomerang-supplemented jam during which Trey sampled his vocal to the Boomerang and harmonized with himself. The entire jam is worth a listen.

Just simply incredible as always!
Wow! This is amazing.
What do the notes say on the monitor?
I don’t have that level of resolution.

Anybody know what that black power strip is with the fat chord?
So when Trey records a loop on the Boomerang, the sound seems to then be “matted” / flattened for him to solo over. Any idea how he achieves this?
