    This is from a campground show. That's my Rivera to the left of the amps of all the metal gods that were there.

    +1.

    I'm not a big Marshall guy but the DSL I've played through sounded great.

    I posted the double stacks just to be a jackass.

    I don't have any current pics but below is basically what I've been using for the last year and a bit. I've replaced the pedals on top with a TU-3 and a DD-5, plus I usually bring an SG and LP. I sometimes use a Recto 2x12 instead of the mini-stack. I prefer my Recto to the Mark V, but the Mark V produces better tone at less than optimum volume levels so I usually take it unless I know that I'll get to play loud.

    Oh OK, then in that case I utilize this oversized 2x12 w/ 120 watt Eminence V12 Legends along with whichever amp I choose. Sometimes I also use one of my 4x12's.

    How do you like those V12 Legends btw?

    I'm thinking of a new 2x12 and the V12s are top of my list to try.

    I really like them. Nice enough change from my usual V30 usage. They don't have the upper mid thing and have tighter, bigger lowend. Smooth highs too. I like them because they can take A LOT of volume and remain clear under lots of gain. I can pour a lot of mids, lows and highs into them with an amps eq and they never get overwhelmed.
    I still prefer V30's, because I'm so used to their aggressive punch and cutting mids and presence. But the V12's are my second choice.

    This is what 14+ years of G.A.S. does to you. This is my finished rig (well, eventually the acoustic will be upgraded, but that's not anything I'm rushing to do).

    I had no idea you had a 335!

    Thanks for the info.

    I'm thinking of them to use in a 2x12 with my SLO clone as V30s don't really seem to work with that amp very well.

    Thanks, she's just a plain old 2001 USA production ES-335 (nothing historic/custom shop), but she does sound really good and is constructed better than most of what I've seen coming from Gibson. I've gotten burned on too many of them, so I hand picked this one at a local store and the honeymoon period has been good (I've had it for probably the last month or so). There's a sound there unlike anything else I've ever owned. I think yours is probably my favorite guitar on the forum, though!

    The Tungsten Crema Wheat I just got in a few days ago. Given your love for Fenders, I think you'd probably like it Kinda hints at the 5e3 thing, while fixing a few things that were probably less than desirable by a lot of folks (namely the loose low-end and lack of headroom). It's got some very cool things going on that make it the perfect compliment to the Vibrolux.

    I thought that was a Crema Wheat...I miss having a 5E3 around as they are such cool amps...I've thought about getting one again, I hear the Tungsten stuff is super nice!

    I agree with your stance on 335's...I just love the tone of those guitars and I feel super lucky to own mine! Thanks BTW!

    Thumbs up for erksin. This is a guy after my own heart. I have a Skylark, a Princeton Reverb, and an Ampeg Jet.

    This is (or was till recently) my most common gigging rig. '68 on the left and '95 on the right.


    I don't always use the tremolo pedal. The Pickup Booster and the Screaming Bird are in the Decimator's loop, and the Shape Shifter comes after the Decimator. All pedals run on batteries, though I'd like to change that soon, and build a board to hold them all.

    But now I have this amp, and it greatly simplifies my setup. I don't use it with the Pickup Booster or the Screaming Bird. That also means that I don't run anything in the loop of the Decimator (except for a patch cable to complete the "empty" loop), and it means that I only carry one amp to a gig. The only thing that is more complicated about it is that I run the Shape Shifter in the amp's effects loop instead of up front.

    My rig is basically a guitar into a tuner and a tremolo pedal, noise gate, and then into my amp, if I am using my new Mesa. If I am not using the Mesa, it's usually my Ampeg Jet, so I will add a clean boost and a treble boost to the pedal chain, and maybe take out the trem pedal. Sometimes I will slip a Hot Tubes into the pedal chain too, but that is mainly for recording, not playing live. Same with my Deluxe Memory Man, though I use that far less often.
    Yeah I'm pretty damn lucky to have found those amps. Guitars and pedals can come and go, but it's soooo hard to find truly great amps.

    So why the noise gate? Do you play with a lot of gain or something? I've never been able to see the appeal of those things because they screw with your dynamics so much.

    All listed down below. Only now Im using the Plimsoul instead of the RAT and I've got a line 6 compressor ahead in the chain. I've also got a MXR blue box that I sometimes use instead of the tweak fuzz. I've still also got the Bugera V5.

    I currently don't take either of my amps out because most clubs or studios I play in usually have a decent tube amp or two I can use clean with my pedals to get a good tone. I had to set my pedalboard up with that in mind.
    Gear:
    Fender '03 CIJ Antigua Strat
    Epi Dot Natural
    Partscaster blackie
    Breedlove Passport Mahogany
    VOX V845 -> MXR Blue Box -> Boss CS-3 -> MXR Phase 90 -> Paul C. Tim OD -> Fulltone Plimsoul -> Boss CE-3 -> EHX Memory Toy -> SD Deja Vu Delay >
    Marshall Artist 30 4202 or Bugera V5

    I don't play with a lot of gain. And I felt the same as you about noise gates until I tried this particular model. It tracks the signal extremely accurately, so it is very transparent. I leave it on all the time, but it's only really working between songs.

    Basically, it's biggest benefit was that it helped to keep my OCD bandmate with weird sensory issues from having a meltdown.

    Bass gear to left. Guitar gear to the right.



    edit: I add all my amp/pedal/cab gear to the picture. Bass and guitars are not shown.
