    Wow - Nordegg is a mad genius. Of course, you kinda have to be one to hang that long with Zappa and Vai.

    That's what I figured, but I didn't want to offend anybody on the off chance that I was wrong.

    Diamond Eyes era (2010) update from Stefypoo on his current touring rig:



    I think it's really cool that he's got the VST rig set up as a backup double for everything (he's using it just for the Diamond Eyes songs) in case something goes awry. Pretty awesome. :yesway:

    The AxeFX is hooked up with the 4 cable setup, and is used for effects only.

    And just in case you're wondering, there is a cable going to his footrest because Maddi (his tech) installed a driver inside it so JP can actually feel it vibrating like a normal monitor wedge would!

    Yeah, I doubt he'll ever stop using Mesa though, he's been with them for nearly 20 years. It would make on hell of a practice rig though, an AxeFX just for warming up:lol:

    you haven't seen anything until you have seen his train of thought era rig!
    Separate stereo rigs for clean and distortion, each with its own rack of effects
    EDIT: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDo-28_o7mA
    thats part one of Mark building his TOT rig, fucking epic!

    Yeah, I remember those. I saw a vid of Mark Snyder building it, it was on youtube a few years ago.

    Srsly dude, look at all that stuff! WAY too much. I mean, if you're in the studio, sure, that's the way to go. But live, people won't notice the beautiful Lexicon plate reverb from the G-major one. Again, it's just ridiculous to carry around all that gear when the difference is barely distinguishable, considering how much it costs to haul gear to the other side of the world.

    It's funny because he admits to not using all that much out of any given box. Just what he needs for one thing here, just what he needs for one thing there... he simply has the money (and crew) to have the best of the best on hand. :yesway:
