I'd say go for better cabs

EDIT: is there any reason you are getting the LTD and ESP versions of the same guitar?

I'd say the head wouldn't work together.
They both sound great in there own right, but if you were to go from clean to dirty in the same song it would just sound awkward.

I really wouldn't go for the Behringer EQ - not only is their quality control horrendous and their components as cheap as humanly possible, but their products just generally aren't aimed for anything more than a cheap play around/a beginner. Invest in a better EQ (MXR make a few nice ones, or you could go for sopmething a bit more expensive).

Also, I agree about the cabs. If you have the cash to spare, I use Hughes & Kettner VC412A cabs... best sounding cab I've played yet in my opinion, apart from maybe a huge Orange cab I played through once when we couldn't fit all the band's gear on a backlline and I sadly was supporting and had to use the headline band's cab :/
Hey, look. Sigs are back.

Not a single coil or P-90 in the lot.

Also, I can make out the Furman, but what else you got in the rack?

It depends on your budget for that particular part of the rig, but would something like this be ok?

No problem I've used them a couple of times as a sound engineer at uni and found them pretty nice to use.

Well, I think you'd be better of with pretty much any cab except for the Peavey's. Get some Matamp Cabs :stickpoke

And why an Alchemist for cleans? They sound good, but if it's just for cleans, why not get a Sound City or something? Save some dough, and get a amp that's purpose is to be loud and clean.

They're basically the same as Hiwatts, only cheaper.

I'm serious about the Matamp cabs.

Custom, hand made in the UK cabs for about 400 quid.

Check them out :stickpoke

They might be cheaper, though.
#26
needs better cabs, avatars?
some of these effects are poor. the behringer eq (wait, is it rackmount? still..) isn't really reliable enough to gig with, and i'd say you could do better than the boss overdrive.
youve also chosen four similar les-paul style, two humbucker guitars. maybe something different would be better for more tonal versatility?
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
#27
My two cents:

- Don't get the Sonic Maximizer, that thing is an instant tone sterilizer that will make that whole rig sound terrible.
- The Boss OD should be fine IMO, especially if you can mod it down the road.
- Get one guitar with single coils. You'll be glad you did.
- I don't care if it's a rack EQ, DON'T buy Behringer.
- Follow other people's suggestions about the cabs.

i might do away with the rack units except the power conditioner for powering the heads.

Im looking into putting a rack shelf in and setting up an mxr 10 band eq for the peavey effects loop

and the hardwire chorus for the bogner but have that on a board along with a trex replica delay pedal.

<b> THE CABS ARE GOING TO BE CHANGED WHEN I GET MY TAX REFUND IN APRIL I WAS USING THE PEAVEY ONES BECAUSE THEY MEET THE BUGET I HAVE ATM WHICH IS £500/$750 FOR TWO. I WILL BE SELLING MY LANEY CAB SO THAT WILL ADD MORE MONEY TO THE POT<B/>

my new buget for the cabs will be £850/$1200 for two of them.

for the guy who said get single coils
I'm an LP shape man and always will be. i could go for p90s in an lp shape but not the strat route. and an lp with single coils would not look great

one question, does that have any sort of switching system? because to me, it looks like your pedals are in a drawer where you wont be able to turn them on and off.

and ditch the VK cabs, your current LV412 is better, so get another laney or an avatar or something.

why are you set on an amp you've never played? i think you should also add a bit more variety in the guitars

the pedals you see are on the floor in front of me

i have a switch blade to change amps and a humdinger to fix ground loop problems

As guitars go i have found that LP are for me i play metal ala BLS, Machine Head, Disturbed, Staind and these guitars (which i have tried except the carvin and the ltd as it was a ec500)
do what i want of them.

I love mark tremonti and pretty much all he plays is LP PRS's

My reasons for liking them isn't that, but pros find a guitar that works for them and go with that im doing the same but with shape. No doubt along the way i will pickup up some other ones but ive been doing that all my life with every different shape from Flying V and ML all the way to Musicman axis and SG's. ive done the superstrat and strat thing and nothing felt better than when i had my les paul strapped on. im not saying they sound better than others they just feel better for me.

I say this is a plan of my rig and not set in complete stone.

Im probably going to change the alchemist to a sound city sc50h as i can go and play one any time and its cheaper so i can spend more on cabs

Don't use Laney cabs.
Swap the Peavey for an Engl.

Honestly, I don't know how you managed to spend £5000 on such a mediocre rig. I'd rather get a Vetta and one great guitar than lots of average stuff.

Thanks for the update pal.

If I had that budget, I'd get a Vetta head, a Diezel or Bogner cab and a PRS Custom 24. I guarantee it will sound 10x better and be far more versatile than your rig of fail.
Don't buy 4 guitars you don't need, or pedals that just aren't necessary. Get some good shit.
