Monitor for either the keys or guitars, I bet. Doesn't look bass-related to me and they've been running some things that way lately - an SWR Redhead with just bass in it for Chimenti, etc.

It's gotta be lead guitar fill.

Even better yet....what's with the $149 digitech pedal to the left of the obama cab? I've been wondering that for some time. It's always there.

That's a good question. What kind of pedal is it?

it's definitely a Digitech pedal of some sort. It looks like it's from the same family as the RP100 guitar multi-effects type I bought about 12 yrs ago for $99. It also has an expression pedal built in, which obviously doesn't get used since its 6 feet off the ground. Just cant imagine what he uses it for, but it's always there, propped upright, with 2 cables plugged in to it. It doesn't blend well with the $12,000 bass. :)

I'm stumped. Maybe some special effect in Space or something?

I know a lot of Phils rigs over the years has gone through Peter Miller at CAE. That cab would be something he built. As for the digitech, there's a youtube video of him at a NAMM show playing with it. I'll try to dig it up.

+1 on the youtube vid. I saw that awhile back and he is using that pedal just like we would. Crazy to think about all of the gear he owns or has access to and he went with a cheapo! Makes no sense, it must just sound good.

I have a little digitech unit that, might even be the same one. Bought it a while ago when I started playing electric and then it sat in a closet for 3 years or so. Recently I brought it back out and found it had a couple nice features on it that are very useable. There's a single coil emulator that cleans up my humbuckers very nicely (might just be a high-pass filter) and the compression is pretty solid (much more transparent than my boss cs-3).

Like Stevo, I had a cheapy digitech that I used and liked and found super easy.

Oddly, there is 1 sound that was on it that I miss to this day.

If I played on a big stage and had a road crew I would put it in a dedicated loop for that 1 effect alone.

It's definitely not a VOCAL monitor. Could easily be a guitar-only or keys-only monitor. From what I've seen of their recent stage setups this sort of thing is fairly common.

I'm wondering how many of those 10" speakers get miked for the PA. He's running 16 10s, and I assume he's not doing a direct out or anything. Think all four cabs are even connected, or might some be spares?
...things we've never seen will seem familiar...
