First thought. It's like he's digressed. From pedals nicely racked with a controller and techs that could fix shit behind the scenes to sloppy pedalboard with odd effects and a tiny tuner I doubt he could see ;)

All of the Dead and Co. gear is very crude and "club bandish" compared to the Space Shuttle cockpit that was the Grateful Dead stage setup.

I dunno - I respect you guys but don't get the whole 'cork sniffing' attitude. If it works for them and sounds good to the audience, what does it matter?

I was talking about how the cables are being ran. They're twisted and some are too long. Just not pro like. I could care less what pedals he uses.

I would like to check out the H9. I think it has a really cool concept.

I'm not sniffing corks regarding his pedals. His setup is a mess: cables run poorly, long cable runs, cables against knobs, power loaded on top vs under, etc.

After enough years you'd think he'd at least run a GCX or Cutler setup or something to keep his gear in a good spot behind him and if tweaking is needed at eye level.

I would think he's either compensated for the difference in tone or figured that its negligible. Looks like any other pedalboard to me

my bad. My guess is he just wants to be able to swap stuff out on the fly to suit his whim.

There IS something kind of comical (or perhaps ridiculous) about the fact that there are likely a dozen or more people on this board with nicer "Bobby" rigs than Bobby himself.
