What is your dream rig?

I'm always interested in learning about new gear and the best way to learn is to find out what other people like. So without further ado, what would you have in your end all be all rig?

For me it would be a 10-space shock mount rack containing (from top to bottom):

Furman PL-Plus power conditioner
Dunlop DCR-2SR Crybaby Rack Module
Mesa/Boogie TriAxis
CAE 4x4
Pedal drawer with an NS-2, Small Stone, BF-2i, CH-1, and DD-3)
Mesa/Boogie 20/20
Mesa/Boogie Simul 2:90

2 straight 4x12 Mesa Stilettos loaded like the MK cabs of old

Pedalboard would consist of (from left to right):

CAE RS-10 Controller
EB VP 250k Volume pedal (Controller for Wah)
Boss TU-2
EB VP 250k Volume pedal

Re: What is your dream rig?

Amps:

Marshall JCM800 2203 (Modded with an effects loop)
Mesa Road King Series II
Mesa/Boogie Mark II C+

All run into Mill's Acoustics Afterburner 412B (4x12) Cabs

Pedalboard:

Teese RMC3 Wah
Vintage Japanese Boss DS-1
Keeley Tubescreamer TS9DX

Effects loop:
Boss CE-2 Chorus
BBE Sonic Maximizer
A nice rack mounted delay/tremolo/reverb unit

That'd be fine for me.

Re: What is your dream rig?

Nothing much actually but just to restore my jem and repaint my gio and have it fitted with a tremol-no, I've already got uber metal(best distortion ever) a ge7, echo park, boss tu2 and a bad horsie 2 which is really really enough for me

Re: What is your dream rig?

Nothing complicated.

Small rig:

Laney LC15/LC30 Tube combo
Boss GT8 or PODXT Live

Big rig:

Mesa Boogie Tri-Axis
Mesa Boogie 2:90
2x12 cab

The small rig is all I need though. The big rig would be complete overkill for me, but I listed it anyway.

Re: What is your dream rig?

I dunno, I'm fairly content with my ENGL Fireball. Just sounds incredible.

I suppose I'd consider upgrading to an ENGL Special Edition head, but I'm hardly looking to buy anything else right now.

Re: What is your dream rig?

At the moment, im very very happy with my current rig:

TriAxis
G-System
2:90
Palmer Speaker Sim
Phonic Power conditioner.

I guess, if weight (and money!) wasnt an issue, then it would be :

TriAxis
Dual Rectifier Rackmount (Racktifier!)
Carvin Legacy Head
+ the stuff from above .

Re: What is your dream rig?

I'm mostly good with my current rig.
Dunlop DCR Rack Crybaby -> Triaxis ->Mesa 20/20 power amp into stereo 4x12
Mesa FX loop to ART SGE Mach II--> MXR Digital Time Delay-->Loop return

I'd like to upsize the power section to a 50/50 or 2:90 and I'm in the process of acquiring a G system (selling off and saving stage)

I think maybe updating my cabs with some nice Mesa or Bag End cabs.
I wouldn't complain about having some other combo amps for flavor, like a Roland JC-120 or the usual Fender Twin Reverb and a couple ZVEX toys for fun.

I'm mostly good with my axes, and my main guitar issue is upgrading old gear to newer goodies in some cases. I'd love to grab one of each new RG puzzles, an RGA model and either a parts made Strat from Warmoth or find a nice Ash or Koa bodied job with upgraded hardware and Lace sensors and scalloped fretboard. I'm hooked on scallops, that's all I play any more.

Re: What is your dream rig?

I'm happy enough with my current setup as well, but would love to have:

Fuchs Overdrive Supreme 100W head
Mesa Mark IV Head
2 2x12 cabinets (Celstion vintage 30's in one, EVM-12L's in the other)
Boss GT-8
Yamaha Motif ES-8

And a stereo PA, not too big. Whatever comes 2nd in the Carvin catalog

Realistically, if I could get my hands on a Fuchs head I'd likely forget all the other stuff anyway!
