You use exactly as much gear as you need to in order to get the sounds you need. Big bands have big setups because they have to deal with power differences between countries and they like to emulate the tones they used in the studio so they have delays, reverbs, overdrives, phasers and switching systems to deal with all that. Once you factor all that in it's a lot but you don't need most of it to play a show if you like your tones simple.

This; a lot of the musos I know might own a shedload of pedals and stuff, but generally use only 3 or 4 live(including tuner and a volume/other pedal to cut the signal going to the amp).

Venues mic up the amps anyway. Or at least they do around here. I've played about 100 gigs with just a bass and an amp I played in an Opera House with just an amp. You don't need anything else.

Recording what exactly. Very different equipment is needed for recording pop music or acoustic folk music or punk or jazz. Not only the genre, but exactly what type of instrument and your budget are very important to know as well.

a lot of bands have cabinets full of expensive mixers and rack units (reverbs, virtual amps, etc) that are separate from their actual amplifiers. mostly this stuff is there to help the band get a very specific, controlled sound, but for the most part if you're not playing huge venues or don't feel the need to tweak your sound to a super-duper-professional degree you don't need any of it.

Get a cheap usb to guitar thingy and Guitar Rig (the free kind if you know what I mean). It won't cost you much.

Given that you're playing a vypyr I very much doubt that you're playing "the good kind" of BC Rich.

Judging amps solely on their ability to survive falling down stairs? That's a new one.
