This is my favourite... Tony Franklin's bass rig from the 1989 Japanese Blue Murder Tour...



(that's his tech Laird in the photo btw.)

Cheers,
Christian

There's loud...there's louder...then there's Entwistle!!

There is a web site that exhaustively explores the gear Pete, John and Keith used over the years; a visual feast for the tech head and guitar maven in all of us. When I saw John Entwistle in 1996 he had the bass rig his crew jokingly referred to as "Little Manhattan". It was a wall of Trace Elliott gear if I recall correctly.....when he took his solo in the middle of "Shakin' All Over" I thought I was getting CPR!!

I am sure that it is far easier these days to get a great sound on stage that gives you the tone you want without caving in your head

I wonder what Manowar bassist Joey DeMaio's rig looks like? I'm sure it's colossal.
