Q: JJ what amp and pedals do you use?
A: Generally, when I'm touring the states I use a combination of a Twin Reverb amp and powered Bose subwoofer as my amplifier rig. When I'm touring internationally, I generally run everything through a Roland Street Cube amp, into the stage PA, via a DI box, because it allows me to reproduce the stage tone consistently without relying on backline gear, and because it's battery powered I never have to worry about possible issues with converting to different countries' voltage. My pedalboard is setup like this: •BOSS EQ Pedal •Ibanez Tube Screamer •Ibanez Echo/Delay Pedal •Micro Pearly Gates Reverb Pedal •BOSS Loop Station
