[MusicalEquipmentGeekeryFilter] Can anyone answer my questions about the stage equipment of the band BORIS

1. Takeshi's and Wata's preamp/amp stacks?
The linked vid is, I think, more-or-less what I saw live. Wikipedia lists: Wata — Orange heads and cabinets, as well as a Matamp head and an Ampeg 810 cabinet; Takeshi uses Sunn Model T amps with Marshall 412 cabinet and an Ampeg SVT II bass amp.
Is Wata running a signal into each Orange amp head? Or is it a preamp/amp? Is there some sort of octave shifter involved in Takeshi's bass sound?
2. Michio Kurihara was often using an EBow; he had also had some sort of console in front of him and I was wondering if the console and ebow were connected?
3. Do they use another PA that they control from stage? At some point, there was crazy reverb on the kick drum that didn't seem to be there before.
Anything else? I'm not so interested in pedal fx but speak of them if you must! (I know you lurve pedal fx!!!) Or links to nifty blogs or whatever 'splainin it all; teh googles, they do not satisfy.
Thanks, and \m/ !!
