What do I need.

I mean. What are the essential things do you think. 2 guitars, 3 guitars, just one. 50 watt amp, 100 watts. 4x12 2x12.

Just whatever you think a person needs for a live setting will be needed. Trying to figure out what I will need, so I don't buy unneeded things.

And hell, mabye I'll never go on stage but I'll have a kick butt rig. (Hope this isn't the case though)

Good topic TJ. smile.gif

Most of the time I use only one guitar but it depends of gig,
there are situation when I need more than 2 electric and few acoustics.
Acoustic guitars go through DI box while I use my regular stuff for electric,
2:90 Mesa power amp,Triaxis and G-Force(Prophesy was before that),custom 2x12 cab(100watts each)
or/and Marshall 4x12(70watts each).

Pedals are Midi Mate,Morley Wah,Whammy,TU-2 and few other things. smile.gif

What I need is: my guitar, my cube 60 amp, my effect-board which consists of VOX wahwah, BOSS TU-2 Chromatic Tuner (VERY VERY HELPFULL), BOSS MT-2 Metal zone distortion and a BOSS CE-5 Chorus ensemble. And an adapter for the effect board, and a power cord-lenghtener just in case. And a lot of pics! I like to change pick as often as possible as they get warm and sweatty.

It's a dificult question, it depends for the particular situation. With my last band I use to have one guitar, but now I use 2 guitars and maybe an acoustic, and I use to carry lot of pedals XD

One should never gig without a backup (guitar/amp) but never the less I always go with one guitar and one amp. I do bring a set of strings and some tools, not the pneumatic drill but some screwdrivers and pliers.

There are a few ways to go about a live rig.

Pros with solid state amps is that you won't break it, tube amps dislikes to be moved around too much. There's a bigger risk of a useless amp with broken tubes.

Amp
-----
2x12 or 4x12 cab plus 50W tube head or >100W solidstate head
or
a 2x12 combo same wattage

Rack
-----
Same wattage as above. Preamp, poweramp, effectsunit inbetween unless the preamp is also including effects.
Drive the poweramp to a cab or the preamp through a PA

Floorunit
----------
Run it to the PA directly


A good way to go about it could be to go for Amp or Rack and bring a floor unit as backup.

I need my guitar and the cable when going live. I like Marshall sound, but I can adjust to any amp found on the site quickly if I had a tone rehearsal. I can play all the stuff without effects, but it would be good to have at least a footswitch for the amp. Wah is welcome too.

On the other hand, I think 2 guitars, good pedalboard, and a good amp/cab are all that a guitarist needs most of the time. Unfortunately one must find a compromise over quantity. I would love to have all the interesting gear, but I can't carry it around too easy. I already have troubles carrying my pedalboard, small combo amp, and a guitar + the stands and a backpack. I don't really need or want any more gear just because of this reason.
