Useless features of your rig

Have anything useless about your set up and like to tell GG&A post it here.



I bought a tuner with a built in metronome but I can't play to a metronome

Bought a polyphonic tuner, but I still tune each note individually.

I haven't used my tremolo on my Alexi 200 more than twice. I have my morley wah which is more or brand new because I haven't used it for anything other than the voodoo child intro and for when I wanna sound like Zakk Wylde (so pretty much less than an hour of playtime)

Standby switches, they have pretty much no use on any guitar rig that employs 100 watt or less amps.

Out of my rig, I have a bunch of pedals I don't use, but in my rig \, I don't use the momentary footswitch on my Whammy DT. It's kind of a weird idea.

The handle, rails, and tiny wheels on that refrigerator Ampeg SVT810 cab. Nobody is moving that beast anywhere.

That or an Arion SFL-1, I only use it when I'm being particularly obnoxious.

My Vengeance has 3 1/4" jacks on the back for non-factory footswitches, it has MIDI capability, my can is stereo enabled, and I can use my effects loop on my clean channel. Other than that, I use everything, including making good use of my standby switch, since my amp is 120watts

Tons of amp models on the axe-fx. Never used the clean or dirt channel on my engl pre-amp, only the lead.

Any of the several hundred banks available on my midi controller, i have 1 bank setup with 5 patches and 5 stomps.

The second expression pedal on my midi controller, the first I use as volume. The second has never been setup.

The DS-1 in my GP-8. Terrible, terrible pedal. And being inside the GP-8 I can't really mod it either, ****ed if I know which part of the board holds the DS-1 pedal.
Everything else gets used. Well, I tell a lie, I don't use the auto-wah in it either any more. If I need wah I use my Morley.

Amp heads are awesome and unique for parking your coffee mug or beer.
