I see your point. I guess I inadvertently made this a show all your stuff thing.
Not a problem. Just wanted to know what to show
My latest gig rig:
Inspite of a room and closet full of gear that has been acquired painstakingly over many decades, this has been my whole rig for the last 3 years or so. It travels well too.
Back to basics.
All my stuff will never be all together unless my wife gathers it all to sell after I pop off. I have stuff at band HQ, in the basement, and upstairs in my office. Mainly when I play it's one guitar and SFDR. I have a pedal board now which is quite recent.
I bought it after it was modded with a 10" alnico. It came in a rather beat up homemade cab with the black tolex starting to come off. My brother wanted to make a new cab but I had no idea he wanted to go all out. Besides the woodwork using solid oak, the back has two-piece doors for a closed back or partly open.
My rig as of 5/5/16, with the exception of the Rogue Delay has been replaced by a DD3.
Pic is from my basement practice space.
Mine's on the right.
Great pic you look right at home in the Photo! nice set up
Pretty simple stuff for me. We don't play very loud lol.
Epi 339, VHT Special 6, 2x10 with some old speakers, tuner, trem, delay, boost.
This is a pic of my whole rig right now. It's all I use, and it's all I need. For a complete gear pic, I'd have to go out in the garage and take a pic of $4000-$5000 worth of gear that is just collecting dust right now.
That's Amplitube3 for the amp. Cheap speakers for the monitor. An American Special Strat for the guitar. The pedalboard has a lot of Mooer pedals on it. Tuner->Filter->Comp->TS Boost->BD-2 clone->Fuzz->Blade->EQ->Reverb. And the Zoom multi for anything else that I'm not picky about. Amplitube takes pedals surprisingly well.
Black_Doug Please tell us about your Champ. Is it just a custom cab or did you do mods and a bigger speaker?
This is what it looked like when I bought it. The speaker is a 10" alnico from an organ and my brother built the new cab using plywood and some oak for the trim and logo.
Here's what it looked like before:
Love everything about that room. Great collection of smaller amps and the Kustom to rule them all. Plenty of space and the barn wood (my wife had me putting up shiplap everywhere - she has to stop watching the remodeling shows).
And the topper is the poster of the Master of Space and Time. Leon is the musician's musician. Arranging, composing, distinctive vocal and piano styles, the Shelter People, James Burton was his guitar coach, stole the show at the Bangladesh concert...What a career.
Or as Leon put it, “I wish I had gone into industrial plumbing."
Beach wedding rig:
Band gig Rig (except I sold the Super Champ and have been using a Blues Jr.)--
That's right--no pedals. That's what the knobs are for.
So where exactly is the delay knob on my guitar/amp?
This is what I take when I go out. Either a AVRI 62RI, CIJ TL72, or Gretsch Power Jet, then the pedalboard is TU2 > Analogman Mini Bi-Comp > Bearfoot Honey Bee > '87 small box Rat > Earthquaker Grand Orbiter > '80 DM2 > EHX DMM. The amp is a SF Vibrolux Reverb. I haven't really changed too much for a year or so, except to add some guitars.
I have a few more amps and a couple acoustics, but they don't make it out of the house much.
This is the typical gig rig. I don't have a lot of shots of the "Twang-Master Esquire" so I used it rather then the G&L Tribute ASAT Deluxe Carvetop that I've been playing lately. Pedals are BBE Comp > MXR CBMOD > Maxon SD-9 > TC NOVA Modulator > EB VP (with KORG DT-10 Tuner wired from the tuner out jack) > Digitech DigiDelay > Peavey Backstage Plus with TC Alter Ego X2 in the loop. (Gibson Lap Steel in the back)
That's pretty dang cool!! I like the convertible open/closed back option. I've never heard an oak cabinet. Enhanced high end?? Anyway, cool amp and cool story behind it.
I gotta admit, the idea of walking in with my whole rig under one arm if needed is pretty intriguing. How does it sound? Is it responsive at all to touch, tone and volume adjustments?
