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

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

A nice rack mounted delay/tremolo/reverb unit

That'd be fine for me.

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 :)

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.

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.

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 :).

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.

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 :D

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

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

I'd pretty much stick with the gear that I currently have, but I'd love to be able to pack it all into a shock-mounted rack case.

-Bogner EL34 Shiva
-Matchless Chieftain (Mark Sampson-era)

Ideally, I'd have both heads running through a splitter that would allow for them to be used either together or independantly with (2) different inputs (for piezos.) I'd run the Bogner through a Shiva 2x12" cab and the Matchless through a 2x12" Matchless cab (custom Celestions).

I'd also like a super-cool Trailer Trash pedalboard with a light-up Matchless logo (http://www.trailertrashpedalboards.com/).

On the board would be more or less what I already have:
-(2) original Ibanez TS-808 Tube Screamers
-Zvex Super Duper Boost
-Teese RMC3 Wah
-Boss TU-2 Tuner
-Boss NS-2 Noise Filter
-Line 6 DL-4 Delay modeler
-MXR EVH Phase 90
-Fulltone Ultimate Octave
-VooDoo Labs Microvibe
-Ernie Ball Jr. Volume Pedal

Pretty simple really. More a matter of repackaging what I already have :)

Laney VH100R, Orange 4x12
Cornford RK50H, matching 4x12

And a nice long cable.




No pedals, racks, or any other gadgets for me. Just the fingers.

Why the 20/20 and the 2:90?

At this point in time I'd like:

Dr. Z Stang Ray and Route 66, each with a 2x12 (got one nice one already), and a switcher to switch between them.

On the floor I'd like to have a:

Maxon AD9
Another overdrive (modded TS-9 or SD-9 maybe?)
Ernie Ball Volume pedal
Teese RMC1 wah (or a Wizard wah, or both)

For noise-making needs, I'd like a:

Big Muff
MXR Blue Box
Boss DD-20
Boss RC-20/RC-2 or Akai Headrush.

I would also like to get a Mesa Studio Pre, a Rocktron Intelliflex, and a good MIDI controller for my current rack. A Yamaha DG-1000 and maybe one of the Yamaha DG 1x12 amps would be nice to have too (I love the Yamaha DG stuff).

I would also like a Behringer FCB1010 for my laptop looping/guitar/electronica rig.

I haven't actually tried all these amps, but they just seem like they'd be right up my alley. I'd also like to try the Suhr Badger...
