I`m new here just curious about what people are using to get their sound?

In my into I mentioned I am used a 1974 which is an 18 watt Marshall combo, For the most part it is on my latest rehersal clips but my main amp and one that I gig with is a 1959 Marshall 100 watt superlead and 4/12 with greenbacks.


The superlead is my main amp for giging but for practical purposes not being used at band rehearsals, I should say right now with my current project.


I am a night owl and sometimes only in the wee hours does the writers block lift, thats when I`m using Logic pro and loops and amp sims working on my latest. Running low through the monitors or just head phones. I can play for hours and bother no one which is great.

Sometimes If I need the sound of my superlead I plug into my attenuator, set the attenuator on load using no cabinet and use the line out to my interface, great tube sound, eq and effects to taste, and I`m running my 100watt silently at three o clock in the morning. smile.gif

I am pretty boring and basic in the guitar department, I own a black Les Paul Studio (hate the binding look) and American Standard Strat, I also own and use an Ibanez 8 string.

So what have you guys been up to?

Short answer:

Only amp models via Guitar Rig5.
Guitar is Jackson cow-6

As soon as we move out to better house I'm investing to at least a valve amp.

Nice Marshalls btw !!

Kemper Profiling Amp on an Alto TS115A
Ibanez S-770PB (Standard Tuning)
Ibanez RGD 2127Z (Eb Tuning)

Guitars are both mains for me, I don't go oh I want this or that. More or less what tuning I wish to play in.

As for amps, I kind of like most of the DV Mark Triple 6 amps I've run. They just seem to really cut through a mix when I practice.

Ibanez RG920QM (Black Ice) , Ibanez S770PB (Natural Flat) , Ibanez RG470XL (Black Perl) , Squire IV Jazz Bass (Sunburst)

Playing my new PRS SE custom 24 which I absolutely love.Amp I am playing through my Blackstar HT5R with a Ibanez TS9 tubescreamer which I am not to happy with right now.Soon I am going to get a Hughes and Kettner Tubemeister 18w head and a custom 2x12 cab.

I really want to get a Marshall but I only play at home and the only Marshall that will probally be quiet enough and sound good will be the Marshall 1w. At £500 to £600 they dont come cheap.

I'm using Gibson Les Paul Studio and Line 6 Pod HD 500 for my lessons at GMC. When I play live, I use the same guitar connected to many pedals (overdrive, phaser, wah wah, volume, delay) and then to my Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier. My cabinet is a Marshall 1960b 4x12.

Very cool gear guys, I also sometimes use Mesa pre-amps in front of my amps but a Marshall 4/12B cab is a huge part of my tone, whatever amp I`m using.

My gigs setup includes a pedalboard :

Attached Image

going to this amp :



Pedalboard gear :

* Crybaby bass way
* Digitech Envelope Filter
* Digitech Driver (overdrive/distortion)
* Markbass Super Booster Pedal (for DI out + boosting/tone shaping features)
* Korg Tuner

Amp : Nemessis NC115 amp - 250w going to 1x15 speaker

Guitar : American Fender Jazz Bass Deluxe

I find this setup very practical and good sounding. It is also relatively easy to carry to the gigs. Amp is powerful but somewhat light, find it lighter then most of the combos I tried. If I would upgrade it, I would add another 2x10 extension cab for better definition and punchy response.

This is my main louder/heavier rig.

I also do a lot of small club gigs.

Various guitars though - I'm not too loyal to any of my girls.

I change it up quite a bit but when I'm playing at home for my own amusement it's usually this '59 Martin



When I play electric I either like a 58-60 Gibson Les Paul Standard or a cool old Fender but I usually always use the old Fender amps.

For most band gigs these days I'm using this modified Traynor Guitar Mate. This amp originally had EL84 output tubes and put our around 15-18w RMS but has been modified with a 1950s Stancor output transformer and now has 6L6 output tubes and a big magnet Jensen 12" speaker. It loud enough for most venues. I used to run an extensive pedalboard but these days I just plug straight into the amp.



For bigger venues I use my old standby which is a 1965 Fender Twin Reverb with factory Fender branded JBL D140F speakers. I bought this amp in 1966 from Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead and it has long been my mainstay. cool.gif



For guitars on band gigs I generally take the trio below left, which are (left to right): 1954 Gretsch Country Club (main guitar), 2000 DeArmond Starfire Special (spare) and 1972 Gerlach with sound hole pickup (slide guitar). For solo acoustic gigs my main axe is the re-topped Martin D18 below right. I generally run it through a SansAmp Acoustic DI into the PA and also mic it.

Sometimes I plug into my little valvetronix practice amp with either my Fender strat or my Epiphone Les Paul (with Gibson Pups)

Or I just grab one off the wall. The electric guitars are usually played via s USB interface into My PC using Reaper/VST arrangements.

Yeah, 1982 Yamaha XS650SJ with 750cc big bore kitted engine. Cafe bars. Rear shocks are about an inch taller than stock for more cornering clearance and quicker steering. Stock appearance, below.

I use mostly Hufschmid and Mayones guitars. Got some PRS Santana SE and moded Squier for some jamming and cheap gigs (I mean...when I'm afarid I can loose the guitar - forget, stolen or something tongue.gif ) I also have my custom Bloody Mary with EMG's for drop tunings.

As for the amp I usually use Cornford RH30 with 4x12" custom Clamor cab (2x V30 + 2 x Greenback) + T.C G-major in the effects loop.

If the pub / stage is small I just go with a little H&K Club Reverb combo.
