DCFC Chris Walla's Gear

Searching through a few emails, I found one that I recieved from Chris after the Bonnaroo festival, I asked him what gear he had used for it. Thought I'd post it for some of you "Gear Geeks" and Death cab fans. Here ya go:

Hi Phil!

Thanks for the nice e-mail.

Here's the setup right now:

That 'black 335' is the new Vox Virage... They brought one to me to
try out in New York. I was dubious at first, but it's really a
fantastic guitar. I've been mostly leaving it in the neck position,
using the 'P-90' type thing they've got worked out.

http://www.voxvirage.com/

The Telecaster is my 2001 '52 reissue, with a Harmonic Design Z 90 in
the bridge; the tobacco burst is actually an ES-335, with SD 1959s in
both positions.

Two amps: One is a stock 1964 Fender Tremolux, through a Dr Z 2 x
10; directly in front of that (post pedal chain) is a ZVex Super Hard-
On that stays on all the time. The other amp is an Orange Tiny
Terror; it's been modified significantly by Mr Jesse Quitslund (all
the ****ty resistors have been replaced with carbon film; mostly just
parts and tubes swapped out, though there's one additional capacitor
right behind the input jack).

Pedals: Very simple - a boss TU-2 tuner; an MXR micro amp; A
Fulltone Full Drive (compressor in FM mode); a Keeley true-bypass
modified Ibanez AD-9 delay; and a Whirlwind switcher to split the
signal to the two amps.

That's what I know... Thanks again for the e-mail. Hope you're well!

- Chris

That's cool of him to go out of his way and send you that detailed e-mail. Cool to see he uses a tiny terror

I love Chris. They're really tight live, and he's a huge part of that. Not to mention he's a whiz in the studio.

Yeah! I was totally suprised that he was that detailed, one of the most down to earth guitarists ever. What I also liked, is that all the gear he uses is "relatively" affordable to the general public.
