The Preachers' Gear
I have had a couple of people ask me what equipment the Preachers use, so here's brief overview for you. You know, in case you are wondering too...
I use an early '70s Fender Vibrolux Reverb to blow harp through. Mics are either a Shure SD545 or my new recently rebuilt Astatic with a controlled reluctance element (thanks again, Lauri!). I use Golden Melody harps.
Guitarist Tim Sherman plays a Custom Shop Fender Stratocaster or a Gibson ES-345 guitar through a '70s-something Fender Super Reverb amp. He doesn't use any pedals.
Guitarist Steve Yonck plays a Fender Stratocaster of a Gibson Les Paul through a Peavey Delta Blues amp. This is the model with the single 15" speaker. He doesn't use any pedals either.
Bassist Patty Mey plays a Pedulla bass guitar, through a Genz-Benz Shuttle amp and an Eden cabinet with two 10" speakers. Bass players have really benefited from technology - this setup works just fine in every size room that we play. Remember the refrigerator-size cabinets that had to be hauled to gigs back in the day?
Drummer Conrad Ormsby plays a Boom Theory trap set, made here in the Northwest. Check out that long kick drum - it sounds like a cannon going off! Conrad also uses a very small floor tom.
That's it kids, see you at the nightclub!
