gear and equipment page
Gear We decided to take a modern approach to gear and use several digital processing systems for our guitars and PA system.


Wedge Wedge relies on a Peavey EVH Wolfgang Special to unleash his sonic assault. Luthier Ron Pace has worked his magic on this ax by performing fret leveling, custom setup adjustments, and double wax-potting the pickups. Curtis uses Fender Stainless Steel Bullets .09-.042 strings.

Wedge has an Ibanez electric for his backup guitar and a Takamine for his acoustic guitar.

For amplification and effects Wedge uses the Line6 POD amp modeler with the Line6 Floor Board directly connected to the PA system. This cool unit lets you emulate 32 different amplifier models along with 16 digital effects. We'll get Wedge's patches online in the near future.

For backup vocals Wedge uses a Samson S12 microphone with reverb, chorus, and delay effects provided by the Digitech Studio Quad 4 effects processor.


RobinRobin is our awesome "chick bass player" and performs most of the backup vocal chores. Robin plays an extensively modified, black Fender Squire Jazz bass. Again, Luthier Ron Pace has transformed this bass into a thundering work of art by upgrading the pickups with EMG-J Active Bass pickups and installing the EMG-EXB Active Tone controls. Ron installed a Hipshot BassXtender Key and a Schaller bridge. Ron also leveled the frets and customized the setup adjustments to Robin's specs. A custom red pickguard and a chrome control plate completes the look.

For amplification and effects Robin uses a Countryman 85 direct injection box to connect to the PA system. Her signal is routed through a Nady GEQ-215 equalizer and a dbx 166XL compressor.

For backup vocals Robin uses a Samson S12 microphone with reverb, chorus, and delay effects provided by the Digitech Studio Quad 4 effects processor.


LightingTo help keep things visually interesting we have a couple of racks with 4 par cans each containing colored lights with an American DJ controller and a strobe light. We have two Martin MX-4 scanner lights. We also make use of an American DJ Volcano fog unit.
