"After the sampler purchase we continued to make improvements to our individual rigs. I started playing Schecter guitars and stuck with them through the end of the band (and, after putting up with the many flaws of an annoyingly unreliable Groove Tubes amp, bought a small Marshall tube combo that I stayed with til the end). Eric eventually gave up on the Eden and the Jazz bass and replaced them with an Ampeg SVT-II Pro and an older Precision bass. Travis started using Peavey Classic 30s instead of the 50, and switched to my old MusicMan guitar for a while until it was replaced with an SG. During the majority of the shows we played during 2003, he used a new Gibson Melody Maker and a Fender Blues Jr. When the JX-1 finally needed to be put down, we attempted to replace it with a Fatar that didn't work correctly, and eventually bought a Midiman Radium that we used during the last few tours. Travis' controllers went through various iterations as well, but the majority of the time he used Yamaha PSS series keyboards. We also used a laptop running Halion through Cubase as our sampler for while, but reverted to the esi-4000 for our final tours." - Jason Caddell on the band's gear
