Richie Sambora's Rig! lots of pics

Thought you dudes might appreciate this even though its not metal or 7 string related.
I work for a crewing company in Melbourne called Gig power, Today we were loading in for Bon jovi and I managed to have a huuuuge chat with Richie Sambora's guitar tech . I thought, man the org dudes would probably like to see this rig, so he let me take some pictures.
Enjoy


I was surprised that he was using JCM 2000's. I was under the impression they were crap?! The guitar tech said the first year they were made they were really good. Any thoughts?



Richie is rockn the iso cabs with a Celestion Vintage 30 in one and a Celestion Gold in the other. Mics were a Sennheiser 421 and Shure SM57 inside. He had some standard Marshall cabs on stage too.




He also had a hammond Leslie rotating speaker in another rack case



Rack action! Richie has a axess electronics Midi foot controller on stage so he can screw around when ever he likes and one back stage with the rack gear so the tech can make all the main changes.


I was so stoked when i saw the talk box.







Close ups of the rack





The thing with this is that, the other half of the guitars are out of the picture...






Hope you enjoyed kids!

Yeah man he was one of those dudes that had been in the industry for years. I asked him if he'd worked with any metal bands.. He laughed and told me he started of with the bay area thrashes. I was like i love you.

I wouldn't say the JCM 2000's are crap. I'd prefer a DSL over the TSL, but still wouldn't be my first choice when going Marshall.

Thanks for the pics! Sambora is a beat.

Nice pics, sooooo many heads!!!

I have two jcm 2000 dsl, and they ARE great amps! just not for metal, and not if you want that classic marshall sound. But somewhere in between.
For what I do they great, like this:

Its a mix between the dsl and a rectifier.(my band)

He was using Herberts until 1-2 years ago, and switched then to Marshall.

du bist die beste!!!!!!

it's all the same
only the faces change...

more seriously : i thought in his BJ days he was a marshall / fender endorsee... and i always thought he had remained with Marshall..obviously not!!!

i would have expected the Diezel to be a bit too radical for his style of music, wouldn't you say? (i don't expect him to use a VHS4 by the way!!!)

Not really, i mean: of course its easy to make the Herbert sound brutal, but its also very easy to make it "nicer". For example - i use Ch1 for pure Clean stuff, Channel 2 in "+" mode for tight and dry rythm, and Channel 3 for small lead parts where i need abit extra gain and compression - for tappings for example! I use the midcut function, but also have the mids in the channel EQ very high, and of course use a guitar and pickups and a cab that "support" a brutal tone.

Sambora used his Herberts: Ch 1 - "acoustic clean", Ch 2 in "minus" mod eonly, gain almost completely down, jsut for crunchy clean kinda sounds, and for the rest he used Ch 3 with low gain settings and also the volume knob on the guitar rolled back! He didnt use the midcut function either.

With he right guitar and pickup combination, you get pure classic rock sounds out of the amp that way!







Oh, and i'm can get really "awkward" for poeple around me whenever i had some drinks and "Wanted" is on...i end up yelling my lungs out, getting down on my knees and administer the epic solo on my brand new sprakling air-guitar.

i KNEW that was coming. well, to be honest, "not yet" - we are trying out some clean parts here and there, mostly some short "jazzy" /"psychedelic" parts.

But before every rehearsal i play my "standard" stuff, to get warmed up - mostly the same 3-4 songs since 15 years. (GNR, Skynyrd, Black Sabbath..and: who would have guessed: Wanted, dead or alive)

Also in non-band-situation i actually play a lot clean.

sambora gear

Hope you enjoyed kids![/QUOTE]
hi!
thanks a lot for that info...iīm searching hard for as much details in richies gear as possible...
do you maybe have info about the two miced speakers...? are they both his main speakers for the dry sound and both of them turned on all of the time, or is the v30 only for high gain and the gold for cleaner sounds...?
and whatīs the trick about the two mics to one speaker...? (is that actually the v30)
his stage amp cabs seem to be miced as well...??? so whatīs going to the pa...the iso cabs, arenīt they...? so why do they mic the stage speakers...is that a fake...?
iīve once gotten the info (itīs been said via his guitartech chris "lumpy hofschneider") that he always actually played a custom audio electronics preamp and used his fender and marshall heads as power amps only...???
thanks a lot,
rudi

Cool pics

So just because Richie uses it you now think they're not crap?
Why some people think just because somebody is famous he has the best tastes/opinions/ears etc?
Personal tastes = everybody have their own.
Just because something is good for Richie(famous dude) it doesn't means you (I) have to like it.
I couldn't care less about what Richie/Vai/Satch whoever uses or thinks about his gear,I try and if I like it...........I like it.
BTW I hate marshalls,I love mesa boobies
