What would that piece of gear be? smile.gif

For me it's tubescreamer or processor (depending on the amp and situation).

I would say - guitar strap! I do not know why - but he's always first on the list of "what I shouldn't forget" before gig !

Well, ignoring things like cables and picks, I would have to say my computer.
It records my attempts at music and plays the music of others.
Plus it brings me GMC. smile.gif

I would have to say picks, because I've gone through bags of them from thick to thin, big to small, round to square. Just to find that certain one that I can use.

Ooo tough one. I struggle without my V pick small pointed, possibly more than not playing through the Axe Fx Ultra.

Talent > Guitar > Amp > Effects

Yourself and a lot of 'correct' practice to be able to play at a skilled level.

The amp is also quite important as it's where everything comes out of, if your got a decent guitar, your wasting it on a blurry amp. Effects last as they just cover up or boost overall tone (but yes, they make the biggest change).

Definately our mastering monitor chain.

TBH I think a lot of people believe that mastering engineers frequently use a lot of special stuff like multband compressors etc. We don't, the piece of outboard that gets used the most is EQ, followed by broadband compression. Nonetheless even before we can decide on how, if at all, to use an EQ we have to hear the audio presented properly and that really means our monitoring chain is the most important. If you can't hear the audio accurately you can't decide what to do.

TBH the brutal truth is that people who attempt to master using 'normal' recording/mixing monitor chains are doing themselves no favours, and if they charge others to do it well...

Also pedalboard is very important because your pedals and your hands make a unique tone! So my Fender amp and my pedals!!!!:)

For me, the most important piece of gear after the guitar is the right guitar pick ! smile.gif

Ever tried to play with a pick that is too thin or the edge is too rounded off ? You can never play to your full potential.
