    Anybody have an idea of what he usually used? I also would like to know what amp/cab is in this video:
    Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks for the info! I've looked around a ridiculous amount about the rig he used, but the only info is on his pedals, never on his amps or cabs.

    Is a collection of photos that will blow your mind if you strained your eyes checking out the studio pictures in Check Your Head you will love this. Specter and jazz into a GK(400rb 800rb?) peavey cab 215&210 or 218&210? I'll have to look and a Mesa head (mark III) into a univox 810
    weirdness I bought the book just for the picture.
    Totally worth it, totally framable.
    Then there are shots of a scaled down live rig.
    I'll snap a pic this weekend.

    Check Your Head era was Spector NS2 or Fender Jazz into GK feeding the Peavey cab described above.

    In the later years I recall an Ampeg rig, (maybe a SVT?) with transparent acrylic paneling.
