Here are some delayed pictures of the gear I hopefully will be (ab)using in a long time now biggrin.gif . The pedalboard was completed today by the arrival of the MXR carbon copy, and I added one photo to show how I installed the fuel tank under the board.

A close up pic by my pedals:

How I installed the fuel tank:

The only catch by installing the fuel tank as I did, but it`s invisible to my while playing and I don`t think anyone else cares wink.gif

Very good setup man! Pedalboard looks awesome. Do you like that EHX Octave pedal? Did you try it with bass, I wonder how it sounds? smile.gif

It sounds awesome with guitar! It does not track 100 % clean, but it adds a gnarly effect which is equally cool. I tried it on my last rehearsal with bass. On the low e-string, the octave became to low for my cabinet to respond properly, but when I moved an octave up I managed to pull of some real funkyness biggrin.gif
It`s not particularly expensive, so I would recommand you buying one to play around with for some funky FX etc. smile.gif

THIS SETUP IS NOT FOR EVERYONE AND SOME WILL FIND IT CRAZY.

I play a 7 string Ibanez with a low B and it's very deep. I found guitar speakers just didn't have enough bottom end for me. Even cabs from KRANK, MARSHAL, etc. All seemed to be tuned to bottom out around the range of a standard six string E frequency. So I picked up a trick from some Death/Grind players and tried a bass guitar cabinet with a 15 inch driver. BINGO! Deep thick tone. I did have to EQ some mid back in though. Eventually, I found a fairly cheap combo Bass amp (Crate brand no less) with an onboard E.Q. I only use it for amplification and speaker color. All processing is done either in software or by my GNX3.

Once the tone is dialed up, I use a fairly cheap Condenser microphone (MXL brand) set off axis, six inches back and tilted up slightly and turned in a little. I've spend countless hours moving mics around cabinets and speakers and found this somehow yields the best results for semi close mic work. If you jam a condenser mic in the middle of the cone, it can frap, and just sound kinda crappy. By setting it back and off axis, you allow the condenser some breathing room and pick up more color from the speaker which is kind of the point of not going direct.

The good news is, this setup is not expensive. Amp was about $300, mic was about $75. And yields great tone. To get similar tone in the traditional way, you may end up needing a Mesa Head/Cab/rack compressor, eq, etc. Which costs thousands. I've tried it that way and it can be done. But as I headed toward doing more and more "In the box" (using software and modeling) I found I was using my cabs/heads/rack less and less Eventually I sold most of it and bought more software, guitars, computers etc. Here is a pic of the amp/mic setup.

Here are a couple of pics of my home studio setup.
