you have over $13,100 and you want a valveking?
spend much more on the amp. eliminate pedals you don't need, specifically distortions. screw the epi lp if youre getting a gibson anyways.
Ibanez S320 with Dimarzio Fred + Seymour Duncan 59-> Weeping Demon Wah -> Ibanez TS-7 -> Homemade iBoost x3 -> Keeley DS-1 -> Visual Sound H2O -> MXR Ten Band -> Traynor YCV20

why the fudge do you want 3 crappy Boss distortions, two of which are the same? And why would you want 4 crappy VK cabs...in fact why would you ever need 4 cabs at all?

Dude, you're idea is absolutely retarded, you need to do a serious rethink....buy a couple of bits of good amplification gear instead of an absolute crapload of wank.

You would spend way too much on guitars.

If you're spending 13 grand, get a Diezel and a Splawn as your amps or something.
and you can do a whole lot better when it comes to effect pedals.

I think TS needs to do some research.
How about getting JUST a JCM 800, ONE cab, and the tubecreamer?
Will sound much better, and cost much less.

What the **** are you going to do with 4 POS Valveking cabs?

I have to ask. Why exactly do you need 4 Valveking cabs where there's only gonna be one amp? And yea ignoring the fact that the Valveking isn't a high end amp by any means, what's the deal with the Epiphone and the Ibanez? I don't get it.

Ok. Ditch all the ****ty pedals. And the ****ty amps. Forget about a custome ESP.
Find 1 solid guitar, one really nice amp (I always suggest Splawn) and some high quality pedals. Then build from there.

Not sure what you play but I the Splawn Quickrod is a great, versitile amp. and ONE 4x12 Spalwn cab. Find a good guitar. The gibson is really nice of course. I'm not really a guitar expert. For effects, I suggest a Fulltone OCD, RMC Picture Wah, MXR 10-band eq, small clone chorus, EHX Holy grail and a DD-7. Not sre about the Flanger or chorus, mstly because I don't use them
#18
You sound like a 14 year old who is listing their dream gear. Not a big deal, thats cool.

But your priorities are going to change drastically, and even if you had the money for all of that gear, you would kick yourself later on for getting the Epi, the Valvekings, and all of the boss pedals.

If you have that much money, why not go all-boutique/high end? Fulltone, Keeley, and others for the pedals

Mesa/Marshall for the heads and cabs

and of course Gibson USA/Custom Shop and Fender USA/Custom Shop for guitars.

Want my opinion? You've made some silly choices, and you'd be wasting your money if you bought all that stuff. For that budget, you could have an elite level amp AND guitar and only the pedals you actually need. Instead, you've chosen a lot of mediocre stuff.

Mark: Nice work, in this thread.

relicmusic1990 -

Either

A. You are young and are flipping thru a catalog / web site with no idea what you are doing.
B. You fell into some money, like an inheritence, and you are doing A. above
C. You just got signed by a lable and you need gear to hit the road with and put the amps at the bottom of list for consideration and you are doing A. above
D. You are trolling

There is no way someone in their right mind would spend $13K on that list of stuff.

You have to be trolling... this is just too grand...

I'd say get one 5000€ Gibson and some 3000€ ENGL head with some 1500€ cab a tuner, a delay, flanger (whatever effects you want) and an OD or something for hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh-gain.

stuff all the pedals get a vg99.

Oh and BTW get 2 guitars - a gibson LP custom and one from your local luther - fittem both up to run the vg99

Then?

Get a deziel.

people on here might be assholes, but that doesnt make them any less right (or any less hilarious in mark's case). the idea of buying ten thousand dollars worth of guitars and then playing through an amp thats around half a grand is just incredibly stupid. i would get 2 guitars, and not either of the custom ones. get a better version of the other two, like a nice $2000 gibby instead of that epi. or even a single cut PRS, seeing as how those are hella-nice.

so lets say youve spent $5k on guitars and you now have at least that much left over for amps and effects. something like a diezel, splawn or engl would suit you much better. and heck, just because you are rich, buy yourself a nice fender twin or something for cleans. ok, that leaves us at least a grand for effects. you want something more like the following:
overdrive: maxon tubescreamer
distortion: modded boss ds-1 or something like a demonizer
wah: one of the RMC wah's, whichever sounds nicest to you
eq: mxr 10 band eq
reverb: line 6 verbzilla
flanger: ehx deluxe electric mistress
chorus: rocktron tsunami would be a good start, look into boutique stuff
delay: line 6 dl-4 and a maxon ad-999

now none of those pedals are really even extremely high end and you could do better, but those are the kind of things you can easily find. all are much nicer than what you have. the amps will blow the VK out of the water, and 2 guitars that cost between $1-2k are going to do you much better than a $6k guitar next to a $500 one.


or just buy yourself $4k worth of vk cabs and build yourself a fort.

Dude.... Boss?

Couldn't you be a little more, uh, intuitive?

Boss usually sucks. Look into boutique, or if you don't want to, at least look into brands such as Electro-Harmonix, ZVex, MXR, Rocktron, Digitech, Fulltone, Way Huge, etc.

Ditch the ValveKing and the Ibanez.

Get a Gibby or a Fender, a nice Marshall head. Or maybe a Vox.

Splurge your ass off and buy a Diezel, they're amazing.

Buy GOOD pedals; don't buy ****ty generic Boss pedals 'becuz every1 haz them lololol!!!!!!111".

Do you see Bostonrocks and HighwayToHell's rig plans? Now THOSE are valid gear plans. You've got your amp as the least important factor in your tone. Forget about all of those pedals and focus on the amp FIRST. I say this far too often actually.

Who is everyone? Boss pedals are very good. This is something I have never, EVER heard before - and I worked for 2 years at a major music gear retailer!

As for the whole issue, here - do what you want, TS. Experiment. If you want a VK and a bunch of Boss pedals, then GO FOR IT. There is no rule/law that says you have to but 'this' or 'that' - George Lynch used ss randalls for a good part of his career, and Dimebag uses solid-state... why everyone bags on the VK specifically, I will never know...
