So im working on getting my setup where i want it, and im wondering if i should venture into the world of racks. Ive heard several people say "never get rack gear unless you gig 24/7" but the convenience sounds like it would amazing in the studio (where i am most the time, or transferring from studio to studio). this is sorta a budget project that i'd like to add on to slowly.

Ive heard about these power conditioners, ive googled, and i think i understand them. At home, i get a slight grounding hum from the outlets in my studio. This would fix this right? also, does this protect my amps/effects from power surges? power surges happen all the time here, we've replaced two computers and numerous phones over the past 5-6 years because of this, and yes, it is the power too, not just the phone line ****ing it over.

how's this? LINKY LINKY

now then, im also looking for an EQ of some sort, i'd prefer to have more than one channel so i can have a setting for electric and another for accoustic/piezo equipped electric, or have two so i can have one for after the guitar before the preamp and then another before the power amp. The next amp i get will be a egnater rebel 20 or 30, for studio use. i would be getting a seperate power/pre amp any time soon.

i have no clue where to start on an eq, it would be nice to also be able to use it for voice too.

that's all i can think of right now, i have access to an 6 or 7 space rack box for next to nothing, that's not a problem, i may add a wireless system later, but not now. the only other thing would be drawer for my stomp boxes, i got that covered.

this would be great because i would have extra space to fit the amp in the rack, so whenever i moved to a different location, all im carrying is my guitars, a cab, and the rack box, with the head inside.

thoughts? any help is appreciated.

tl;Dr: suck my dick

Keep in mind racks are FREAKING HEAVY. I had to move my school's rack once and it was hell. I think it was 100+ lbs.

i understand, i'd rather have one 100lb rack on wheels, and only have two things to keep up with for my amplification (cab+rack) than have a pedalboard, extra picks/tools drawer, power supply, amp, and cab all in seperate containers.

im prone to loosing things.

edit- idk if it matters much, but the rack case im getting is light as hell, probably not more than 10-12 pounds.
