PLUS ...

DigiTech VL 2 / VL 4 harmonizers with a TC Helicon Harmony G and two Fender Champ amps and a HealthKit "build your own tube amp" from the late 1940's my Dad had built.

The other Whiners:

Both Dave and Jamie use Fenders and Yamaha.

Dave is the strat king and Jamie has a fretless - for gigs, though, Jamie usually brings his Yamaha or perhaps his new (as of late 2009) short scale bass and/or Epi bass. This is the Epiphone SG bass (think Jack Bruce-like). Sometimes, he'll use KEITH's Rickenbaker 4001s (Paul McCartney) bass. Dave also uses a Yamaha acoustic and a BOSS all-in-one effects unit. KEITH will have to get the model number off of him to list it some day.

Dave has a Traynor tube amp he'll haul out for live gigs to give him some of that electric snap we so love. Dave also has a few other odds and ends acoustics and electrics including a Fender 12 string electric and a Dan Electro long scale number. Actually, Dave has a whole whack of gear too, so KEITH shouldn't feel so alone.

KEITH provides a Mackie 1642 VLZ 3 mixer for the road and we use SM 58 mics (didn't like the Beta versions of these so we are tried and true of the original SM 58s).
