What's your slide setup?

Y'all come on in and sit a spell. All things Slide and alternate tuning. Celtic, country...whatever. Get your fill of DADGAD, open G and whatever tickles your fancy. Strictly on topic please.

What's your slide setup?

Hey all :)

I'm new here and I'm sure this thread exists somewhere lol but I'm specifically interested in what your equipment setup is for the sliders out there :)

I guess I'll start.

Mostly playing my G&L ASAT Classic Bluesboy with a set of 12's on it in Open E.
I play with no effects straight into a VOX AC4tv and use the volume and tone to move between sweet singing and overdriven fuzz. I prefer playing on the neck position pickup (SD Seth Lover).

I use a custom made Diamond Ultimate slide on my pinky.

I have some other guitars but this is the setup I prefer right now. Looking to get a reverb in this little setup as the VOX doesn't have any built in. Maybe the FDR-1 Fender '65 Deluxe Reverb pedal (if anyone has any input to influence my decision that would be great!).

So watcha rock'n?

I play lap steels. all are vintage relics that play and sound great.
1940 Epiphone Electar Zephyr tuned open E
1938 Rickenbacher Model 59 tuned to a modified C6.
they all go thru my 90's Fender vibrolux.
a modded Tubescreamer, delay, and a modded MXR helps them to sound fantastic.
