Feel free to do anything you want with this mods, as you are incharge.

Theres a bunch of Best Rig and Professional Rig threads, but I havent seen a Worst Rig Thread. All I know it that theres a bunch of people bashing certain amps around here.

What you do:
Post the rig that you would want the least. This includes ONE amp, ONE guitar, and a few effects. Maybe any extras. You can post a few rigs, if you would like, that you would hate to have.

So heres mine:
Amp: Marshall MG15 DFX
Guitar: BC Rich Warlock
Pedals: Those FAB pedals by Danelectro

(My friend actually has that amp and guitar. The amp has the worst sound ever, and the guitar has a rusted bridge, strings are gross and cut your fingers, and has fret buzz.)

Your Turn :

ummmm well an invisble amp with an air guitar that somehow gets feedback......

haha. But I bet you have one of these crappy rigs so thats why your jealous.



Not quite, but not the best ever (and not better than yours), thats for sure. Just imagine that some people may actually own the rigs listed there.
Anyway, I think that the worst rig is an ooold rotten acoustic (only 3 strings left. And rusty as hell) with a bad electric guitar pickup screwed on and run through a pc speaker in a cave. Now that's some natural reverb
#29
I'd probably go with a westfield HSS strat (if they make one) retrofitted with a Duncan Invader bridge pickup, and two hot rails

Marshall MG amp.

Aye, that'd suck.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

You don't argue with tubadude on Washburn-related matters, he flosses with the G string from a set of 0.12's y'know....and it's WOUND!
#32
instead of just making it up, post "your" bad rig or someone you know


a friend of mine had a crappy ass broken down Aria with a small 10w crate amp from the 90's with intermittent cables and no effects.............. and his wife bought him one of those cheesey $1 guitars off ebay which wouldn't even make a good childrens toy its so bad.
#35
I'm going to be honest here, I'm not going to go for cheap stuff:

Amp:

One of those high wattage solid state Randall things... Honestly the worst amp I've ever tried bar none, how people pay for that trash is beyond me. If it's got to be tube then for the price either a Krank or the Mesa Mark IV IMHO, they both sound cheesy, have no dynamics and sound way too much like a synthesizer.

Guitar:

PRS hollowbody, I'm not a fan of their solid bodies really but this thing is just in a whole new league of awfulness. I've tried at least 15 and not one has hit me as mediocre, even the finishes have been awful (on the most part.) And don't get me started on the lifeless sound with absolutely no balls and no dynamics. For the price I'm expecting something slightly better sounding than an Encore.

Effects:

Keeley's Katana boost is awful, it absolutely ruined the sound of the black face I was playing it with. The Voodoo lab sparkle drive is just plain harsh. The Jaques Spin Archer or whatever it's called sounded like a throbbing heart not a spinning speaker. The fulltone OCD sounded mediocre at best, certainly not worthy of the price tag or the hype (as with all his pedals really.)




EDIT: No offence if you own this stuff of course.... Although you may want to think or replacing a few things.

Worst rig I've ever seen at a gig?

PRS Custom 513 (or whatever the real name is)
Marshall MG 30w (one of those tiny ones)

I hated that kid the whole time he played (at least you couldn't hear him, if anyone played he was drowned out) The funny thing is, I don't think the sound guy even mic'ed his amp, he knew it from the start.

It's better with no teeth, trust me. Much fewer scars on my penis now that I've switched from seniors in high school to senior citizens.

The rig I posted is my rhythm guitarists. He just doesn't understand why I roll my eyes when he says he wants to play this song. The boy's gotta be tone deaf, he thinks it sounds "crunchy and awesome".

my co guitarists recording rig in one of my bands Jackson King V>Boss MT-2>Marshall MG30DFX

He insists that this sdounds great however everytime he sends me his guitar tracks for me to mix i end up having to scrap them because his guitar tone makes the entire mix sound bad.

+1 on the krank sucking, lewis. Still haven't tried a mark IV though.

I quite liked the sparkle drive to be honest....

but yeah, it was a bit treblier than a maxon od808. Maybe the amp I was playing through (JMI vox ac30 clone) calmed it down a bit.

still, the klon centaur is where it's at from the OD's I've tried. Pity it's like £300+.
