    i saw dr. dog the other night. it was an uproariously good time. i caught a few pictures of their pedal boards and amps. sorry they're a little blurry.

    Scott McMicken's amp (on the right of the photo):

    it appears to be a sommatone amp: http://www.sommatone.com/artists.html

    his pedal board:

    boss digital delay, boss tuner, boss graphic equalize, boss octave pedal, boss phase shifter (i think), volume pedal, some unidentified black pedal (probably a dirt device)

    Frank McElroy's amp (the tweed-y one):

    his pedal board:

    boss octave, boss tuner, ehx sitar pedal, proco rat, blues drive, ibanez graphic equalizer, boss phase shifter, and two other bos pedals i can't identify from the photo

    Saw them in SD last night. Guitars sounded huge. Seems to be mostly them, their amps and those hollowbodies to blame.

    Seeing them on Friday. Was planning on snapping the exact same photos. Did you get a look at Scott's board?

    yeah. that first pedalboard pic (with the volume pedal) is scott's board.

    he was playing fender coronado for most songs. i definitely preferred that sound to his normal gibson 335-ish guitar.

    Brainfart. Somehow completely glossed over that. :rotflmao

    I've always thought the two 335 approach was way too loud for the small club gigs they do. Big wall of sound they can put out has sounded crummy when I saw them last. Good to see Scott messing with a Coronado

    Someone remember to walk up to them on a break and inform them they're using Boss pedals and therefore experiencing toan suk. And wear tan pants of course. LOL

    I love stuff like this. A band known for having great tone using gear that the majority of this board would consider "beneath them."

    ^^^^

    yep!!

    love how these touring bands that are creating great music use plain old boss pedals....meanwhile, TGP bedroom warriors are nitpicking every little thing with booteek pedals.

    i would guess that the two unknown pedals on Frank's board are some kind of delay because of the L and S for Short and Long

    bumping this thread up because i'm seeing them in boston next week. one of my favorite bands in the past 5 years. the new album is great too!

    i'm hoping i'll get a chance to meet them. our band does an annual "dr. dog show". the four of us go together. it's one of the bands we're influenced by and we'd love to someday share some dates with them!

    i love seeing the boss stuff! makes me feel like a little bit of an idiot since I do have a mostly TGP board, but it reassures me that they know how to make their rigs work for them, and that they themselves are awesome musicians in their own rite.

    LOVE Dr. Dog. They sold out the venue here in Louisville, KY last week. Good for them. I caught them last year in a 50-person venue on the Shame, Shame tour.
