Well I sold everything I owned guitars,amps,etc except my Carvin and the new Jem77FP in favor of doing some tone whoring.. Now keep in mind im on a budget that would make most of you guys laugh.. This is going to give me versatility and also recording abilitys without spending more money.
$399 Pod XT Live
$100 Upgrade said PodXT with Model Packs
$100 Art Tube Rack Compressor and Tube Preamp
$100 Behringer Rack Tuner
$100 BBE Sonic Maximizer
$60 Furman Power Conditioner
$80 Misc Cables and Accessories
$30 Floor Standing 12 rack stand
Grand Total Spent
$969 Yikes but it will be worth it in the end.
Plus I am getting a pedal custom built by a pedal maker on a forum I go to which will be incredible I wont say nothing I will let the tone speak for itself.. I got to design the case and the name.. I will give you a hint on what the tone will be like, its named "Damage Control"
I will post pictures of the new set up when the rest arrives. I got the PodXT Live and the Art rack unit last night. Let me tell you that Tube compressor and tube preamp ran post PodXT is fricking incredible.. Its got 2 tubes one for the compressor and a seperate for the preamp. It really brings life to the PodXT. And I borrowed a friends Sonic Maximizer last night and its just WOW..
Now it might not be for the true tone whores but for a home setup on a super tight budget it sounds incredible.
I need to finish things up by buying a power amp and then some monitors for it to be complete. Right now im running it thru a Onkyo reciever I had laying around and thru some Cerwin Vega DX7's I just restored. 2nd hobby is home audio
WOW thats a lot of typing to not have pictures
