Line 6 – M9 Effects Pedal
Digitech Whammy Pedal

The gear I use with DMB is more in depth, but for my solo tours (and w/Bela Fleck & the Flecktones) – DPA clip on mics that go into a Shure wireless transmitter…from there, into a Q-Tron envelope filter (the ‘wah’ effect). From the Q-Tron into a Line 6 / M9 pedal. Then, I send a  mono signal from the M9 thru an active DI to the soundboard.  This is my ‘chain’ with occasional alterations.

MICS/WIRELESS:
DPA mics – the best clip on’s I have ever used!
Shure Wireless Receiver
Shure SM32 condenser mic…great all purpose mics.

CAMERA:
Canon 5D Mark III w/various killer lenses.  I especially like the 70-200mm (2.8 fixed), and my iPhone : )
