The rig that Grohl and, of course, Beebe now swears by on stage is much simpler than the one Beebe inherited: a four-channel Mesa Boogie Road King head with a 4 x 12 Mesa Boogie cab, three pedals — a Boss DD-3 delay, an MXR Phase 90 and Boss TU-2 tuner — and a Shure UHF-R wireless system with “auto-assigning belt packs.” “I got rid of the extra amps,” says Beebe. “Before, when he [Grohl] wanted a cleaner sound, the A/B box would get a signal from the Vox AC30, which sounded great. When he wanted a dirty sound, he would go to the Mesa Boogie, and there was a Marshall that was in the mix every once in a while. I got rid of that and I bought a three-channel amp at the time, and now we use four-channel amps, so I can get a wide range of tones and sounds. I like the Mesa Boogie Road Kings because 1) they sound good, and 2) they’re bullet-proof. We’ve dropped our racks off the loading docks, and when you fire them up to see if they work, they actually sound better! And they’re a big company that have a lot of gear in every country and you get a lot of support. If I need anything, they really take care of us!” - Joe Beebe (Grohl's Guitar tech)more
