Re: Tell us about your set-up (guitar gear)
My setup these days isn't very exciting when playing live.
Guitar : 1994 Jem 7V - stock aside from SD Full Shred in bridge, with the 2nd position wired to give me the bridge humbucker single coil.
Amp : Line 6 Helix floorboard into the rack running ableton live straight out to the PA, in-ear monitoring.
Monitoring : Shure SE535
In the past I used a traditional pedalboard into a Peavey 5150 and later a Cornford Hellcat but now I just use the Helix. In the past I played in metal bands playing original music so a 5150 was ideal, now I do more session work and covers because I need to pay bills, so a Helix was an obvious choice. Especially as during 2017 I had some pretty nasty pain in my back after carrying my Hellcat combo, could barely get out of bed for 2 weeks and have had it return 1-2 times since then, so I'm in no rush to go back to carrying amps when I get amazing results with my Helix (though I still have to carry PA speakers, etc).
There has been talk of some reunion gigs with my band from over a decade ago, I think if that happened I'd probably get my 5150 back in action.
