    if I could smuggle one more item in my pocket I’d add my TC Ditto Looper pedal (it’s always in my practice signal chain)

    there was an amp-only thread like this recently and I could not answer. Can't answer this one either.

    My amp requirements change depending on where I'm playing and can range from a Champ to a 4x10 Concert *plus* another amp - I set my amps at near-maximum headroom and my guitar volume rolled back about 20-25% so I can control lead volume and drive from my guitar.

    And the guitar will change depending on the style played, band size AND what amps will be used.

    And pedals are usually "music specific" - stuff needed only for what's going to be played. So I'd have to know specifics before I'd even know what gear options I have (errr...yeah, I *do* have a rather large amount of gear - but when I was gigging it sure did come in handy!).

    Ok I'll play.
    Maybe an ES 175, Dual Showman with a 2/15, and an Echoplex.
    I have a yen for a Showman, 1/15 which is stupid since I never leave the house.
    GAS doesn't know any better.

    Today, it would be an ESP Les Paul variation, into a modded DS-1, then into an AC30.

    Tomorrow may well be different.

    Pretty close for me, just swap a Cabronita tele with TV Jones Classic trons in for the Les Paul.

    1) An old style Tele (my 52 AVRI will do, as also my Baja 60s)
    2) Tube Screamer
    3) a nice BF amp (I guess the desert island one would be a DR) or a 5E3 (I have yet to try one… next on my to-do list). If I have neighbours I might disturb, change that to a BF/SF vibro champ and 5F1 or similar

    Sorry! Not that original!

    I'm good with one of my guitars, any Goodsell amp w/ reverb and tremolo and a tuner.

    I'm not a weirdo, but I can play that role.

    I am currently pretty happy to have assembled one rig that can amplify my guitar, bass and lap steel equally well to my ear. This sort of addresses the OP's parameters since I tend to focus on one instrument at a time.

    Zoom B2 modeling preamp pedal>Peavey M-3000 power amp>AudioKinesis "Birdhaus 48" cabinet (a 4 x 8" bass cab equipped with some pretty great FaitalPRO 8PR200 drivers). The Zoom is flexible enough that with a little tweaking I can get pleasing clean guitar and steel sounds, and the cab can do both "deep" and "bright" at pretty loud levels if I want it to...with intuitive and easy EQ tweaks (my old lap steel likes a little more scooped EQ and a little more top end extension than my guitar does...but the differences are, to me, surprisingly slight).

    As a bonus, all the pieces are reasonably small and light too, and as soon as I get that power amp into a rack bag with a shoulder strap, I will be able to do one-trip load in/load out with it.

    I'm on the verge of saying "My other stuff is for sale." One of each instrument and one (admittedly odd-looking) rig that serves them all.

    1 decent Telecaster – right now it would be my George Harrison Tribute but I would be fine with my American standard or AV52RI, too
    1 decent Fender Tube Amp – I use a "Custom" Vibrolux but would be happy with a Twin or deluxe or even a Blues jr.
    1 decent TS-type pedal – although I need / use it only every once in a while when I do sideman work, I'd choose my Joyo/Harley Benton Vintage Overdrive or just an old ts 808 or ts9. Or just the verb/trem pedal of the vibrolux (though I don't use / need that, too).
    Oh, can I just skip the pedal?

    • Jazzmaster with a good trem.
    • Vintage Bandmaster Reverb.
    • Since the amp has a fine 'verb, Echoplex is the pedal.
    But wait! I mean, a Tele!
    And a vintage Deluxe Reverb!
    No, a vintage Supro! A Gibson Falcon!
    Hall of Fame!
    MY MARTIN!
    And...!
    This is cruel, you know....
    Can I at least smuggle in some capos?

    The setup I use for 90% of the time during gigs just now:

    • American Elite Tele
    • Vox AC15C1
    • ABY switch for Normal/Top Boost/both

    ...so long as I’m allowed to use 3 guitar leads, not 2!
