Hard to see completely - but here's 89, still with the Twins (silver face), and the yellow Boss pedals clearly visible. I see the Mu-Tron and a Boss OC-2 octave pedal for sure. I guess the EQ's could be in the back row? With the pedals on the shelf of the rack it's really hard to find a pic that shows them all. Bummer.

And yes - 94 had its moments for sure! I remember shows in 95 mostly with sadness, however. Musically and otherwise

Yeah you’re right I don’t see any EQ pedals on that one!

Funny how we all think his tone was really great in ‘89-‘90 but he felt that he needed the EQs for some reason. Wish they had Rig Rundown YouTube back in ‘91 hahaha - the Jerry episode would be priceless now!

When Jerry went to the GrooveTube preamp he was going direct, and the band was using in ears. The McIntosh was only at the bottom of the rack to serve as a weight to keep it balanced. AFAIK.

Hey Jon, check out this bad boy - it’s got a Stratoblaster circuit, an Orange Squeeze Compressor circuit and a ProCo Rat circuit in one pedal! So cool...
I have only played the Rat on my old Boss OD-20, but I remember that I was pleasantly surprised by the transparency of the drive and that it was highly adjustable from medium to super high gain.

The week those were first announced, I put myself on the mailing list for it and got one of the first 50 or so. I did everything possible to like the pedal but I could not. I sold it a couple of months later for close to what I paid for it. I'll resist explaining why I disliked it. It would be a long and idiosyncratic story that shouldn't influence anyone else who might feel differently than I about the pedal's basic tones and interactivity between them.

Yes, I do.....well it’s a take on the improved RAT circuit. It’s the aqua-green pedal lower right. It’s awesome, made by Tavo Vega of Nocturne Pedals and amps. That whole pedal board is pretty much all Nocturne pedals with a couple of exceptions. Besides the qtron + and Phase 90 I have, I don’t really have any other Jerry inspired pedals. I never got into that rabbit hole. Having a Wald Modded Twin and a Shakedown Amp I’ve pretty much nailed the clean tones and that’s good enough for me. Other forms of overdrive and distortion do just fine for me.
