Hi! I'm planning on playing a lot more shows now, and setting up tiny little patch cables and whole bunch of pedals just isn't working for me, so I decided to have one entire rack setup. The thing is, I don't have the slightest clue on what brands are good, what is not good, etc, so UG is where I turn to .

My budget would have to be $100-200 per rack and yes, I am willing to go used (i'm so used to this phrase from asking for amp advice )

So what would be the best

a) EQ rack
b) Tuner
c) Noise Gate

(I'm going to get all three eventually, but I'm more focused on the EQ for now.)

and also last question; is there such thing as an "overdrive" rack? I love the sound that overdrive pedals (bad monkey, tubescreamer) do to your overall sound, how it boosts it up and tightens it up, so are there "overdrive" racks?

Thank you!

I think boss used to make a rack overdrive, the ROD-10, but it'd be pretty hard to find.

The closest thing to a rack "overdrive" would be a rack mount preamp used for overdrive purposes.

A peavy rockmaster might be an option. It's essentially the preamp of a peavey ultra.

Get a rack mounted ISP for the noise. If you can't afford that then get the pedal version and stick it in a 2U rack drawer.

I switch my ISP on an off quite frequently. I dont care what anyone says, ANY noise gate will cut sustain..so on slower leads i'll tap it off. I only keep mine at -40db as well, which isn't even halfway.

EQ? - BBE Sonic Maximizer....
Tuner? - Korg DTR-100
Noise Supressor? - ISP Decimator.
I've bought, sold, and traded more gear than I care to admit.

DBX 215 should be more that enough for your needs, pretty good value for money too considering its pretty much the same price an MXR 10 band pedal but you get a 2 x 15 band eq.

Shame theres no foot/midi/relay switchability.

Why not just get a pedalboard (or make one) and be done with it?
