What are the biggest or craziest gig/practice/whatever sound set ups you've seen? Doesn't have to be original pics just whatever you know of, can even be googled. I don't know where to start so I'll let you. Cheers!

Matt Bellamy also has a pretty impressive setup.

Cause Marks are really middy amps?

Cause that's how the Marks work. You keep the mids running high on the normal EQ and scoop them on the GEQ. It keeps it tight and not sounding nasally. That's the reason most people don't like them when trying them; they just don't know how the EQ works.

And as far as big rigs, http://www.customaudioelectronics.com/rig_show.

Pay more attention to the Steve Lukather, Eddie Van Halen and Michael Landau rigs. They be massive.

And of course, David Gilmour: http://petecornish.co.uk/pfrig.html and Lou Reed: http://petecornish.co.uk/lrrig.html

That's how metallica gets crushing overdrive.
I love all 5 (sold a couple) of my Carvin X-100b's.

Im not sure but I would think thats what his guitar tech uses to tuner guitars with, possibly daisy chained to a korg tuner? Just a guess.

Find any pic of Status Quo. There's always a wall of Marshall stacks and the sound is actually coming from an AC30 hidden around the back. Eventually he (I forget which one of the two of them it was) shovelled the AC30 circuitry into a Marshall cab so he didn't have to hide it.
Now THAT'S crazy shit.

Probably monitors for the tech. Easy to hear when something goes wrong.
