    Would love to know what the other delay pedal he has other than the TC Flashback.

    Holy .... that's great. This is actually a really successful band and he can't be bothered to mount his pedals to a board hahaha.

    Ty Fury does have a pedalboard for US shows, but the fact they are over in the UK on a low cost tour, his pedalboard might have just been too costly to ship. They had two beautiful Warwick basses for Pete, Chris has one Framus going into a AxeFX with a Tech 21 Midi Moose (3 channel controller thingy) and Ty had his Tele, Framus and a PRS CU22 thats been around the block and modded to hell. The cost of all that would be mega. They were using a Rental drum kit, Ampeg SVT & 810 cab and a 5150 into two Mesa 412 cabs.

    Shipping 8 guitars (two backups that Ty never used) and a AxeFX would have cost quite a bit. If they are flying BA, each extra item would be £40/$60/€50 at the airport, £20/$30/€25 or online at for the first bag and then £34/$51/€43 for each additional one.

    Say they are traveling with say 25 items, thats an extra £1000 in cost. That may just break the tour financially. It was only about 8 or so dates, so if there was 250 at each night at £12 per night, its about £24,000. Take off van rental, gear rental and air fares and other costs, they will make about £12,000 off of it. Each guy may make about £3,000 each tops.

    Tours need to pay, and for their first ever proper tour in the UK, its probably the best way for them as they play to about up to 2,000 people each night in the US from shows I've seen on YouTube.

    Bare economics will be the reason why its only two delay/echo pedals, a wah and a tuner using the amp as distortion as well. Strip out as much as you can and save what you can.

    Yes Trapt are successful in the US market, they haven't even started in the UK market, i have followed them since 2002 and been wishing a show since then in the UK. More successful bands in the same genre I've seen recently have packed out an arena with 8,000 plus paying £26 a ticket so can carry more gear to/from the US to the UK. Look at Mark Tremonti, his Alter Bridge rig must cost thousands to ship, but for his solo gig he ships enough guitars and plays with a Mesa Triple Recto and a small pedalboard i think. This may change in the future, but it saves them money.

    Id love to see a full US production rock/metal show sometime, but till then I'm happy with a stripped down more raw performance. Then you see the true band performance, and Trapt do that better than a couple of bands I've seen play to many more thousands of people in a larger arena.

    So much love for people like myself who spend more time staring at the setup and pedals than the playing.. xD had to lol when realised almost every shot doesn't have any artist involved, mostly before or after show and we're busy scanning the setup and taking photos - who needs shots of them actually playing? :) I'm being serious by the way xD

    Not sure if already posted but King Buzzo is using QSC/Crown amps now - I respect anyone that uses PA amps for guitar :)
