    Yeah, I hate that that page went offline...did anyone happen to save it?


    Anyway, if I remember correctly:

    Pedals:
    EHx Big Muff Pi (x2)
    MXR Phase 90
    EBS Octabass
    Boss DD-3
    Retrospec Compressors (x3, inculding one prototype; customized with external transformers)

    Rack Effects:
    t.c. Electronic G-Force

    In small rack (on top of his main rack):
    Emperical Labs EL-8 Distressor
    t.c. Electronic FireworX

    Switching is CAE/Bradshaw...I think there was a DTR-1 in there also...

    Here's his RS-10:

    The RS-10 has instant access switches labeled GForce Chorus, GForce Delay, and GForce Reverb...but of course he could be using it for anything. The confusing thing to me about his rig is how the two channels are setup. There are inputs for the different basses, but two channels...so I'm guessing one is for the basses and bass side of the stick, while the other is for the melody side of the stick...now if I could figure out whats where...I have a good idea, but I'm still not sure about some stuff.

    I think this was his most recent setup...I know he was using the same stuff on his solo tour, and I know this rack is in the studio pictures from the LTE stuff...I don't know if he'll change anything going back into crimson (I think the last time he was playing with them he used mostly a pedalboard)...and you can't really see the rack on the newest PG video...so I don't really know.
