Model Description Owner Codes
Ampeg Guitar amp. SS-70C. Branden 1
Budokan Guitar amp. 50 Watt. Doug  
Marshall Guitar amp. 100 watt Valvestate. This baby can really can get some sweet distortion out of it plus has a footswitch to switch between Clean/Overdrive and OD1/OD2. You've got to be nice to Matt to use it! [grin] Matt  
Mesa Boogie Guitar amp. It's 2x12 and 100 watts. Brian  
Peavey Bass amp. 15" Superchorus - Big, loud, etc. Sean  
PA, 4-channel. Not much to look at, but it'll amp the vocals pretty well, and doesn't sound too bad either. Sean  
Sonic Monitor. For the PA. Sean  
Other Mixing board. 8-channel. John  
Epiphone Electric. Strat Copy. Cuts out occasionally. Probably an internal problem. Don't swing it around too much it should hold, especially if playing stationary. Matt  
PRS Electric. The kind Alex uses, no? Brian  
Other Electric. Branden is bringing his axe. Branden  
Electric. Doug's crappy guitar. Doug
