I have been given a load of gear for my birthday but my problem is that I have only ever had a guitar and an amp. I now have a boss br 600 recorder. 100 watt marshall valvestate stack amp, fender 200 watt amp, behringer effects mixer with video board, sony cd writer, tascam da 30 mk II recorder, behringer drum machine.
If you reply to this please bear in mind that I am only used to a guitar and amp how do I get the best out of all this gear? I know my way round the boss cos I had one before but its putting this gear together and using it properly?
cheers people.

I'm not sure I understand the question. If you want the most out of your gear, use it?

It seems that you got a lot of semi-pro gear that is suitable for rack-mounted use in studios. Possibly a gear from a bit outdated studio? When I say outdated I don't mean it is bad, on contrary, all the gear listed can have significant value. However, this value depends on what you plan to do with it. You mentioned all the gear but you didn't give us a hint what exactly are your goals. Do you plan to open a studio for recording? What do you want to record? Do you want to create songs?

When you tell us this, THEN we can suggest what would be good and what not for your specific usage.

I think you should start experimenting with those amps you got first in search for the tone YOU like the best. Once you get that, you can hook up a mic to that behringer mixer and record everything on the boss recorder. Good mic for recording guitars is Shure SM57.

You should concentrate for now on getting the good tone out of those two (different) amps.

Can you tell me that behringer's drum machine exact model number so I can search info about it. I've been looking for some nice external drum machine lately smile.gif

think of signal flow,

starts on the guitar, goes to whatever pedals so want, then amp, then recording mixer/software, and maybe all the little things you can add in between, but the point is what things do you want to use and when in the signal chain would they go
