Bob Bradshaw Switching System – Made by Rocktron, was personally owned and used by Phil. This was not only used live on the Adrenalize tour, it was also used for some of the Adrenalize recordings. This system is also mentioned in the November 1992 issue of Guitar School under Phil’s “Rackology” on page 22. “After many months of trying out almost everything on the market (and realizing that what might work in the studio won’t necessarily work in a live situation), my trusty tech Stan Schiller and I blagged, borrowed and bought the following list of equipment and had Bob Bradshaw put it together in a rack for us. The rack is operated by a switching system that Stan kicks and steps on below the stage during the show.” – Phil Collen / The 7-Day Weekend Tour Book.
