    So I saw the Eagles last night for their "History of the Eagles" tour which was amazing! All the guys definitely have still got it, so happy I finally got to experience them live after being a fan for so long. Of course I tried to get a look at their gear, our seats were at the side of the stage so it was pretty difficult to get a good clear look at what the guys were using - but there were big screens with close up shots of the guys all night so I would take a glimpse there and check it out. The stage was 90% Fender amp (various tweeds, an original blackface Deluxe amp, a silver face twin) and Vox's. It looked like Joe was playing through primarily an AC30 but he had 2 what looked to be 1x12 cabs each side of the Vox and a head sitting on top of one cab. At first I thought it looked like one of the new silver faced Marshall MG amps! Obviously I was appalled but hey, Joe can do whatever he wants haha!
    Then I thought it might be one of the new Suhr PT100's, there was gaffa tape covering the logo on the head and the camera never got quite close enough to get a decent look, but it definitely looked like a PT100!
    Anyone have any insight? His tone was great, but its definitely 90% mojo dripping from his fingers.

    If these shots capture the amp your referencing then i would have to say no.
    Having owned one I would have to say no.
    For starters the "red" channel is all the way to right.
    But hey, who knows?

    Yep thats what it looked like! Certainly doesn't look like a PT does it? Hmm any other ideas? His tone was really good but to me it didn't sound all that voxy. I swear something else was in the mix

    These might interest 'gear' people as well. Steuart Smith's is first and Joe's is the next set.

    Great thanks for sharing. I really like that all the guys are using mostly Boss stuff... its refreshing to hear great tone coming from working mans gear. Of course as someone will be quick to remind me again, the talent plays a massive roll too.

    Yeah, the world of professional musicians is not that gear oriented like the world of basement players is. Most of them use gear that is readily available, road tested and road worthy, and easily replaceable, with the exception of vintage stuff.

    When you work with real pros, you'll find that Boss is probably the number 1 represented pedal brand because the pedals do exactly what you want, no surprises.

    I play with Steuart in Don Henley's band. I have no idea what Joe uses with the Eagles though. But I can tell you Steuart uses Classic 50's and mainly boss pedals and sounds just awesome. I love playing with him- it's an honor. And he's just one of those guys that's above the gear- he's an amazing guitar player.

    Nice company you keep, Pete!

    Steuart is amazing.

    I first saw him years ago backing up Shawn Colvin and he always sounds great.

    Steuart was amazing on the night no doubt! When he played Felder's parts in the Hotel California solo I got goose bumps, his tone was fantastic and the way he phrases is so tasty.

    That's one of the things I've tried to do my whole playing career. I can't count the number of times that someone has been nice enough to complement me on my playing and sound, see my rig, and then proceed to tell me "you know what would sound really good?"
