    I'm not sure what his setup is but I think I remember hearing he uses a Tech 21 RBI though. I know I've seen him use Mesa 8x10s as well as ampeg cabs in the past.... as well as some unknown beat up 8x10. I think the only standard in his setup is the Stingray.

    SVT & Mesa 8X10 cabs. Obviously the Stingray too...with a pick (very important factor to his tone).

    I heard he was using Bongos for a little while too

    Thanks for the responses. Sansamp huh? sounds sweet. I heard in the past he started touring with an ampeg preamp and a crown power section and a fridge. It's kind of a mystery what he used but I suppose an RBI can nail it.

    His live rig IIRC, was Mesa Big Block 750, into Mesa 8x10's...and it sure sounds like it!
