He wasn't using it at Fare Thee Well, it looks like he swapped his Pigtronix Class A Boost for it, though I guess that could have been some time during DeadCo.

Did anyone happen to catch the name of the new amps he was using last night?

I was wondering what amps he was using as well. After zooming in on some hi res photos from last night, I'm pretty sure they are Fat Jimmy amps.

http://fatjimmyamps.com/

There are only three adjustment knobs visible on the amp on the left and a single toggle on the right by the power light. The amp on the right has two adjustment knobs and a toggle (on the left side) and two toggles on the right side.

I liked his tone last night. Curious if anyone has any more details on the actual specs and cab/speaker config.

I suspect it's redundancy. Seems like all pros have two amps these days.

Not sure... it looks like the switches on the two amp heads are slightly different.
