Okay I did this awhile ago but I"m gonna do it again with some updates.


Amp:
Splawn Competition 1000 (used)

Cab:
Avatar 2x12 (speaker suggestions?)-300?


Pedals:
TS9
MXR Dist+
Boss DD7
Rocktron tsunami Chorus


I think this is all I want for this year I'm trying to keep it under 2k. I would like Suggestions for everything here if you have a better idea, btw Chorus is for nothing more than fattening up (Doubling) so don't recommend some crazy chorus.

the Splawn is pretty much set in stone unless you have hard evidence that there is something better for 70s and 80,s Classic rock (Van halen, Boston, GnR ) AND can do Metalish stuff (Pillar, Skillet, Kutless>

I'm also really hoping to get another les paul ( with a P90 maybe) and a strat (from hatebreeder)

How about a reverb pedal? Not sure if the Splawn has it built it or not. That looks like a solid rig to me, assuming you've tried out those pedals and have chosen them out of preference.

More saturation, the TS9 is just for a boost the Dist + is actually for a bit of dirt

nothing
couldnt find the thread
there was a guy who decided to make a thread for his rig called rig of doom or something relatively similar,

the next day his tube amp head fell off his stack or something and basically stopped working, thus,
dooming his rig

The Tsunami is a very good chorus, so you wouldn't need any more. I personally think you should change the TS9 for an OD9 or an Xotic BB Preamp. The delay should most definitely be analog, so go an MXR Carbon Copy or a Maxon AD-999, you want something clean, yet characterful. There really isn't a need for a distortion pedal IMO, and if you do, I would get a fuzz for a different sound (though I know you do make fuzzes, so that would be pointless)

Maybe an EQ or 2.

My gear goal this year is 2 MXR 10 bands

Edit: Good choice on the DD-7, I've got one. Didn't think I'd need all the fancy extras but I actually use the loop function a lot.

What EQ do you have? I'm trying to get a lot of opinions before I buy one (or 2) myself.

Are you getting a new Dist+ or a vintage one?

Go for an OD808 in lieu of the 9. Splawn has built in boost. What features of digital delay would require DD7?
Can't speak on the rocktron
#27
okay 808 it is, I want the tap tempo and the loop the most.

but I might just get a G-major instead.

I don't see a point in buying a Splawn if you're going to use a stompbox for distortion really, call me crazy

Boosting it should get you more than enough dirt.

The Splawn has plenty of OD on tap on it's own but a clean boost (of level only) is the shiz nit. Ask Kevin Saale. The guy I bought mine from specifically told me to get a Bad Monkey for this purpose and I was like...





Check. Yep, got that already.

Check out a Line 6 DL4 for your delay. Its got 3 preset delays options on tap and a 14 second looper. Its like a hundred bucks more than the DD7 but since your not getting the Dist+ you could probably afford it.
Sig What?
#34
I like the DL4, always have but there is alot there I don't need, so I don't think so.....
