Can anybody see Oteil's new rig?

    I watched the Dead & Co. tour kickoff last night. Oteil is still using a pile of Epifani cabs, but he's added some single 18's in very large front loaded cabs. I imagine that low B is pretty killer on stage. As usual, the cameras are on John, so it's hard to see exactly what he's got. Anybody seen any stills?

    ...he sounds great on anything.

    Back in the day (here), Oteil used a G-K 800RB head with a homemade 1x15 cab (& a stock Fender Jazz)....and killed.
  3. How was the show ?

    I watched only a short amount of the show but am pretty sure that he has added Meyer Sound cabs to his rig, logo was visible in one of the close ups of him singing.

    I think you'd have to be standing about 20 feet in front of those subs to really feel the effects of having them :) I noticed he was at times standing on a "Bass Board" for a tactile low end response... and he's got IEM's.

    While I love me some Dead (and Co.), Oteil and Jeff seem to be the two holding everything together. Billy and Mickey are pretty spent.

    Billy and Mickey are so laid back, but still always on top of things. We're just not used to seeing drummers so relaxed.
