    Hi all,

    just for fun, lets see your favorite/preferred Amp/guitar/pedal setup

    i'll start: heres my Hw1 full 70s tele, my modded valve junior ( done by a fella here in the uk) makes a hell of a difference, and my pedals the ever present bad monkey and an EH holy grail reverb.

    I use this setup for recording on the whole so i dont need loads of power, still manage to get nice tones out of it mind and its portable too.

    Lets see um!

    heres a pic...

    Telecaster > 78 SFDR.

    I have an old slap delay that I'll throw into the chain if I have a rockabilly job.

    I've never found a pedal that I enjoy using. So, here is my favorite combo:

    Here's mine. '72 Custom RI into a ZVex Super Duper 2in1 into the homemade 5E3. It might not be the best looking setup but it's by far the best tone I've ever had. My hands are the weakest link in my signal chain.

    My studio rigs.

    '62 bassman with silent speaker cab
    Rackmount fx/looping rig with Marshall poweramp and Carvin 4x12.
    Heavily modified 90's Fender Prosonic with 2x12 Marshal extension cab.

    Pedals:

    Ernie Ball Volume, Fuzz Factory, Vox Wha, Whammy 1, Ibanez Octaver, Voodlab Superfuzz and Sparkledrive, Ibanez Analog Delay, Line 6 DL4.

    All the pedals are true bypass and most of them have been modded for higher fidelity.

    I also have a Frostwave Ring Modulator that is in line between the pedalboard and the amps which can be seen in the big pile of cables.
    Yes, I know I am messy- I just got back from a rehearsal.

    Playing live I just use the pedalboard and either the Prosonic or the Bassman.

    ok, at the, not so small, risk of sounding stupid what is a 5e3 and how would one go about building one? How much would it cost to build one? I am not to technically adept and light on cash, but want a nice amp to play on at home and take out, should I ever meet my own expectations of competence to do so...:rolleyes:

    I currently use a Mesa Boogie V-Twin, Keeley Compressor, Klon Centaur, Boss DD-6 Delay through my '56 Fender Vibrolux.

    Any blackguard will do!

    Sorry for the poor quality camera phone shots.

    OK, here we go:

    The Thinline Tele is built from Warmoth parts: the body has a rosewood top on a swamp ash back, finished with TruOil; Bigsby B16, Wilkinson roller bridge; Fender Nocaster pickups, no-load tone pot, 5-way Superswitch; neck: pau ferro board on maple; 1-3/4" wide Graphtec nut; SS med. jumbo frets; Kluson locking tuners.

    Pedal-board: Ibanez tuner, Danelectro Wasabi Rock-A-Bye delay, George Dennis GD125 tremolo & vol.pedal, Siggydrive (Fulldrive 2-clone), Barber LTD overdrive, Marshall Ed compressor, self-built A/B->C/D switcher (input switchable between my lap steel and the Tele, output between tuner and amp); Collins power-supply.

    Amp: JTM45-clone built from Weber 6M45 kit, headshell built from scratch; speaker cab: 1960s German-made Hohner Box 60 that I got with broken speakers, which I replaced with a 10" Eminence Legend 105 and a 12" Legend 121.
