First off, I'll start by saying I have two rack set-ups: one with just a couple pcs for my 5150 head (I'll post another thread for questions about that later..) and my all rack rig.
The all rack rig is as follows:
Furman power supply
Sabine RT7000 tuner
Digitech 2112 (with the artist upgrades)
Mosvalve MV962 power amp
sometimes a BBE 462 sonic maximizer
AKG WMS40 body pack wireless
ART X-15 floorboard
Either 4x12 customized 400wtt cab or Peavey Wiggy 2x12 cab (I had it custom covered from the factory to match a XXX cab)
I'm not really pleased overall with the tones and feel it might be the power amp more so than the Digitech. The Digitech is capable of some amazing stuff having two independent processors built into it with a 12ax7 warming the overall tone in the preamp. The Digitech lets me change patches without cutting the tails off of my delays and effects. I also get some "radio frequencies" and immediately pulled my wireless but the problem still existed.
I like the tone in my 5150 head using a BBE462 in the effects loop but I love having the flexibility of the processor. I can set up presets for acoustic gigs or monster tones for the electric stuff. Lately I have been doing both to offer a variety at my recent acoustic gigs. I just don't want to give up the flexibility or spend 1000's. I have read about the VHT power amps and the Mesa power amps and they both sound as if they would probably kick the crap out of my Mosvalve! I don't have any stores that sell either of those so I could try them out - so I can only go on what I've read so far.
Any advice on any part of this topic would be greatly appreciated -thanks!
