For his solo work, Reb has used Mesa Boogie 4x12 speaker cabinets for some years. Larger in size than a regular Marshall cabinet, Reb's Mesa cabs are loaded with 30 watt Celestion speakers, which he mikes off-centre from the speaker cone. His taped guides for mic placement can be seen in the photo above. For his live work with Whitesnake, Reb has been using regular Marshall straight front cabinets with vintage weave grill cloth with 4 cabs used in smaller venues and 6 in larger arenas. The Marshall heads in the photo above are dummies and are not used. Many thanks to Reb's tech on the Whitesnake 2004 Tour, Matt "Maddi" Schieferstein, for allowing us access to Reb's live rig.more
