I would be sadly neglecting though not to say, why spend so much money on recreating somebody else's rig? Why not build your own?

That being said, holy shit, that's impressive! I'm green with envy. How much did it cost?

And even more importantly, how is it all controlled and how do your rout the signal? Since I'm working on my own rig, I'm always curious as to how the routing goes. Because that is something you cannot see on pics.

Edit: Oh, and your roadie must hate you!

It cost a small fortune but its well worth it to be honest!!!!!
There are 2 main signal paths that go out to 2x ac30 and 2x tweeds i have foh thru one of the pods plus shimmer and ce-2 from the h3000.Its all routed thru CAE custom switchers and mixed thru the line mixer before going to the amp selector it then gets controlled via an expanded rs-10 and a rocktron rsb18 switcher.
Its a lot easier than people think to use a rack like this.The hard part is getting all the options like wham wha loops and custom amp selectors etc but once its there evrything else falls into place.

Its not just used for u2 sounds as you can imagine this rig can produce a combination of styles and sounds.

I need a Dallas Shoo if your interested???????

What can you offer?

Seriously, if I can make a decent living I wouldn't mind being a roadie.

Your rig alone would be worth it!

Alas, I'm on the other side of the pond.
But let me know when you guys cross over for a gig and I'll swing by.

Doesn't work for me - my browser just hangs during the d/l. . .

To the OP: put these on picasa or some reliable internet server for us all to ogle at!

Believe it or not but Edge uses 2 2290s together to make 1 program there are 2 pods because 1 for front of house another for sound effects like leslie on one etc.

Come to think of it, why use 2 outdated Pods when the XT is a superior beast? Surely double the number of presets is better, as is the greater choice of amp and effect models to choose from. Or was that purely based on what Edge used?

Also, and this goes to all you Edgies out there, where do you get a good Edge-like woolie hat? I can't seem to find any.

The absurdity of it all! Through clicking a link at the top of this site you can get U2 jewelry, T-shirts, those stupid Bono sunglasses, but the coolest items, Edge headgear, they omit. For that it must seem I have to turn to evilbay.

Surely if some online store can stock Bono sunglasses they can stock Zoo TV/Elevation/Vertigo beanies, Joshua Tree era pork pie hats, Lovetown bandanas and coolest of the coolest, Popmart cowboy hats?


Edit: Found this on evilbay browsing for U2 clothing. I had to share this.

Oh and they need to make sure they have plenty of free text messages with there mobile phone contract your gonna need em"
