Tell me what your rig consists of.

I play a 1964 Kay Truetone 302 through an A B pedal to a Silvertone 1482 and a Haynes Jazz King. The Silvertone has a super fuzzy mid tone with built in tremolo, while the Haynes has a very clean, warm tone. In addition, the Haynes is ran through a Marlboro Quadra Sound Blender, which gives it a very splashy, surfy reverb. The end result is a very sixties garage, surf sound. It's not a versatile setup at all, but it's exactly what I'm going for.

Now what do you use?

Charvel so cal into a joyo pxl pro. Loop 1 has dime wah, whammy dt, green rhino, and swollen pickle. Loop 2 is just an M9. Loop 1 goes into a ISP decimator gate, and loop 2 goes into an mxr 10 band (once it gets delivered...lols). All this goes into a Peavy Valveking 212, which will soon be switched for something else (something marshall).
Charvel So-Cal (SH6TB/N, killswitch), Jackson RR5FR (TB6/Jazz, Drop C). Joyo pxl pro.
Loop1=Crybaby from hell, Boss PS-5, Seymour Duncan 805 or Green Rhino, EQD Hoof or Earthbound Audio Super Collider. Loop 1 into ISP Decimator II.
Loop 2 (FX loop)-Line6 M9, TC Spark Mini. Loop 2 into mxr 10band. All into a Peavey Triple XXX 212, Ibanez IL15.

my main guitar is a PRS replica a friend of mine made with a SD JB in the bridge and.... another SD in the neck, can't remember which one. Both are coil tappable.

Going into a VOXAC30C2. Am in the market for one celestion blue to replace one of my greenbacks with. I think the blend of the two will go well.

As far as pedals go, I have a homemade compressor that is a replica of Ross apparently (made by pedalparts.co.uk), a T-REX Mudhoney 2, crybaby, a delay and that's pretty much it.

Pretty standard stuff

I have collected way too much stuff over a lifetime of playing live.

My most common gig rig:

Shure SM58
2004 Fender USA Tele- bone stock
Boss tuner
Cry Baby wah- used twice per night
OCD pedal- for blues on the edge tone (Think Mike Campbell)
Boss Flanger- used once/night
Boss stereo chorus- not used in my current live set
2005 Mesa F-30 amp with 3 gain stages- on it's second set of tubes

Versatile, quick setup and break down, very repeatable tone and effects night after night with no surprises.

my main guitar is a 58' epi explorer with a jb/59 set and it runs into a bad horsie 2 through a ts9 and ns2 into a line 6 m13 running in 4 cable mode. one bank runs up front while the other 3 are in the fx loop. also in the fx loop is a mxr micro chorus, a tc electronic transition delay, a bbe sonic stomp, and a korg pitchblack tuner. that whole hot mess runs into a peavey 5150 and a blackstar 2x12.

My most recent rig for my now disbanded metalcore band that I mainly played lead for was:

My 2006 PRS CE-24 going into my Dunlop CryBaby (want to replace with a Morley Bad Horsie), into my CMATMods Signa Drive (to add some more gain to the clean and dirt channels), into my Bad Monkey (to get a more modern scooped metal sound on my high-gain channel) to my Mesa Boogie Mark V, and then into my Voltage Amps closed back 2x12.

In the effects loop I had a Boss TU-3 (board and cable space was limited), into my TC Electronics Corona (for a subtle chorus and for clean chordy faux-acoustic sounds) into my Boss DD-6 delay (not used often, usually with more pronounced leads), and then back into the Mark V.

I picked up a Strymon Timeline just before we disbanded so I haven't even had the chance to use it in a band setting. The main intention of my rig was for versatility, and for being able to play whatever I wanted, even if its 5 or 10 years down the road. I like to plan ahead, haha.

I play around with different setups at times, but mostly...

Guitars...

Fender Squire Strat made in Korea probably late 80's (the guitar in my avatar)
Peavey Patriot made around 1985
Cort CL1500 made about 2000 or so
1966 Harmony Bobkat
No name telecaster semi hollow with who knows what pickups
Takamine EGS-330-SSC acoustic
1940's Electromuse lap steel, not gigging with it right now though.


Amps...

1973 Fender Super Reverb
1974 Fender Champ
1980's Peavey MX into 1967 Kustom 2x12 cabinet

Pedals...

Arion Analog Delay older than most of the guys on here
Ibanez Phaser
Marshall Bluesbreaker Overdrive at least 25 years old, I've had it that long and got it used
Boss DS1 distortion modified for more of an overdrive, kind of semi overdrive and distortion
Ibanez SD9 Sonic Distortion
Schaller volume pedal
A/B Switch

Sometimes I run just the Super Reverb, patch the A/B switch into each channel and set them for different tones.

Right now trying out dual amp rig using the Super Reverb and Champ, the gigs we're playing require very low volume level, last weekend I actually didn't max the Champ out and it worked well. Champ for loud tube amp, Super Reverb for clean, worked well.

For louder situations I use the Peavey MX for cleans and Super Reverb dimed for raunch and roll.

Finally found out I can use the 110 outlet built onto the back of the Super Reverb for the other amp and avoid the loud hum I always got from the ground loop created when running two amps from the same outlet. That helped a lot, and for the low volume gigs it looks like the Champ and Super Reverb rig is going to work quite well. It was almost dead quiet last weekend.

The Champ has been modified to take a 6L6 power tube in place of the original 6V6, pretty simple matter of replacing one resistor to bring the plate voltage in line for what a 6L6 runs on. Fatter and grittier sound but no more wattage or volume. It's also running a 8 inch speaker from a Gorilla practice amp, it had no speaker when I got the amp. Not bad for 8 bucks at a flea market...

The Super Reverb has been modified to eliminate a couple of bad things CBS did to the silverface amps, but it can't be completely blackfaced, wrong transformer. Removed the "tone sucking" capacitors they put on the power tubes and used one in a different location to deal with oscillation, changed the value of the bass filter capacitor to tone it down, it had such loud boomy bass at 2 on the knob at first it was useless. Sounds great now, after a couple of minor mods, and a complete rebuild.
Hmmm...I wonder what this button does...

cool, i have a 1482 as well

those amps get catch some flack but i like mine quite a bit. btw, i heard the circuit is based on a Fender Tweed Deluxe 5E3 circuit.

let's just say i play a bunch of different stuff. my setup is whatever the hell i feel like for the day. i think i plugged a '84 G&L ASAT deluxe into my '66 epiphone embassy the last time i plugged in.
punk isn't dead, it's always smelled that way.

I use a fully stock Schecter C-1 Artist II and Fender Telecaster Deluxe 72 RI. My pedalboard consists of TC Electronic Polytune 2 into a Fulltone Full-Drive 2 (want to get an FD3), into a non-nano EHX Double Muff, into an LPB-1. I run a Digitech DL-8 (soon to be a Malekko Ekko 616 Dark) into a TC Electronic Hall of Fame through the effects loop of my amp, which is a 100W Peavey Valveking 212.

I play hardcore-ish music.

Depends on what & where I'm playing...for most gigs, my faded Flying V w/ Mojave Amp Works pickup into a Lexicon MX200 rack echo/reverb & my custom made 20W Soldano mini SLO 1X12 combo.

If I'm playing Van Halen covers, I break out the crazy re-amp rig like EVH's. Early '80s Kramer Frankenstein into a Fulltone OCD (full volume/almost zero drive), 1978 MXR flanger, & phase 90 into a fully cranked 50W Mojave Scorpion connected to a load box. Scorpion line-out runs into the MX200 & then to a power amp & cab. Huge VH1 sound. Brown all day
