Dan & Mick's Latest Rigs For Gigs [Pedalboards, Amps & Guitars]

Published 31 May 2024

"The TPS Band did a run of live shows in May 2024… What gear did we use?

Welcome to the show. We were fortunate enough to do a trio of live dates in the UK with our dear friend, Andy Timmons. It’s the second time we’ve done it and despite various obstacles conspiring to upset the organisational applecart, so to speak, we finished three great nights of music on a high. Massive thanks to each and every person who came out to see a show – we are extremely grateful!

People have asked to get a closer look at the rigs Dan and I used for the gigs… so here they are.
We know a lot of you would also like to see recordings of the shows, but we didn’t film or record anything properly, mostly because it’s too much hassle and expense to do it right, and would basically take me out of the band - Mick here. We're of the opinion that gigs are gigs and they’re best consumed analogue, in person.
And… really sorry I forgot to play the Jam Wahcko! Doh.
Enjoy the episode!
