I thought I heard somewhere that he just plays through the PA. Is he using amps now?

I'd heard this as well...

He hasn't used Ampegs in decades. He usually goes from a SansAmp RPM into a Palmer Speaker Simulator and then into the board. He's got a Trace Elliot somewhere in his signal chain to use as sort of a monitor / last resort if his main signal chain fails. According to the press release, he is going to use Orange amplifiers onstage for the upcoming tour. I don't know if he will use them in the studio, but it is still quite a feather in Orange's cap. Geddy Lee sets a lot of trends among bassists and those people want to use whatever he uses.

he's not used Ampegs for yeaaars.Pretty sure Geddy just Di'd into the FOH or something along those lines.

Yeah, he just DIs.

This makes amp choice a lot easier for me...except for the money part.

I wonder if his tone will actually be much different now that he'll be using Orange...

Yeah, he would have to choose the most expensive bass amp they make. I'm looking forward to hearing him play through it, though.

I played a gig through one before. Pretty amazing. I was scared to change any knobs though, didn't wanna ruin the settings of the owner but he had it set up good!

Was pretty awesome, cant remember the exact tone tho, this would have been about two years ago now...

The thing I hate about sponsorships, is that sometimes they can be off-putting. For everyone who wants this or that 'cos Mr X plays one, there's peeps who baulk at that association.
Now I love Oranges, and had only just recovered from the Oa*is association, then they go and do this!!! Ah well, it's not a big miss...I'd have rather had a Hiwatt DR201 anyway.*


*Doubt Orange are too fussed anyway, given that my spending power is measured in buttons!
