This is currently my effects set up. I don't use everything at once all the time. I tend to do some dancing sometimes when I am jamming to find sounds. This set up is used for heavy rock, doom, and metal.


It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!

Amen to that - left to my own devices, I could sit and drool at them all day! Sid's Schechter looks cool, as does GS's Jaguar. Pedals, I know absolutely NOTHING about - but some of the pedal boards I've seen on here could make a one-string solo sound like a rock orchestra!!!

:D :D :D

Vic, I am actually trying to cut back and trim down on the pedals to simplify my set-up. However, if you happen to have questions about pedals, I'd be happy to try and help with some info.

Thanks, I might just take you up on that offer. I am very definitely in favour of keeping things simple - but if I ever get to the stage of playing live, and I have to switch from, say, clean to distorted mid-song, it's going to be a lot easier standing on a pedal than changing amp settings (I use a Cube 30X) mid-song!

:D :D :D

Hey guys, that Schecter plays and sounds as good as it looks. I got a smokin deal at guitar center, $349, it's Korean.

I suppose I could take a pic of the Peavey Bandit and the Vox amp. Lookin to upgrade my Zoom 1010 pedal to a Boss GT-8 pretty soon and maybe a Peavey Valve King.

Gotta sell the Bandit first. The Jackson Soloist should be home tomorrow, sent it in for some nut work and fret level.

Ok, here's my main rig. The guitar is a G&L Tribute Legacy Premium. The amp is the first Testament MK-I I've built. I'm selling Testament MK-I's if anyone is interested. If you order one, it can come covered in a variety of coverings...tweed, aged tweed, and about a dozen different colors/styles of tolex including snakeskin and either the Fender-style cabinet and hardware shown or a Marshall-style cab with the appropriate hardware and trim.

Haven't got a pic of my pedalboard right now, I'll try to get one up soon.

Cheers!

Strat

Sid, i'm not very familiar with Schecter's models but that's a Diamond isn't it? Does it come with coil tapped Duncans? How different is this from a C-1 classic which retails around 700 if i'm not mistaken?

Great thread, and I can finally post!

Jay Turser JT-133 (ES-335 model)
VOX DA5 amp

Forgot how much fun this is and so much of what I knew, but to learn the fretboard, real chords and actually know what power chords I've been playing is fantastic! :D

Well in all honesty, I didn't build it just for me to have a nice amp. I'm building these amps to sell. I just get the "perk" of having one of the finest-sounding amps in the world around to play! :mrgreen:

Cheers!

After years of gear hoarding and a bad case of GAS, I'm finally stripped down to the essentials:

Line 6 Variax 500 (leftie)
Washburn D10SCE (leftie)
Vox Tonelab LE
PC running Magix Music Studio Deluxe 12

I don't gig electric these days, so the Washburn straight to PA takes care of live stuff - and the Vax through the LE covers everything I'll ever need for recording purposes!

Actually its a Gryphon limeted, sorry about the price misprint. it listed for $349, I paid $279. Yes it has coil tapped pickups, they are Duncan design though. I'm gonna try both a JB and a Tonezone in the bridge to see if I can tighten up the highs just a bit.

I know for fact the Tonelab sounds wicked but I'm still a bit scared about the Variax. But man, the options the Workbench offer keep winking at me, I swear! I've heared some of your recordings and I know you've got your chops, how do you think the Variax weights up to the 'real thing'?
