Well, over the next year or so Im going to be completely replacing most of my rig. I play mostly metal and punk (rise against type stuff), with the odd classic rock. But Id like some opinions or suggestions on how I can improve the setup, or if it will work for me.

Guitar:
Ibanez SA120 (Will be upgrading P-ups, possibly new guitar though)

Pedals:
Vox V847 Wah (replacing Dunlop Crybaby)
Boss CS-3 (Already have)
Boss TU-3 (Purchasing today)
Boss DD-3 Digital Delay
UNKNOWN BRAND (Looking for a good AB switch)
UNKNOWN BRAND (Looking for a good OD Pedal for some extra boost)

Amps:
Marshall DSL100 through 1960A cab (Used mostly for distortion/OD/crunch/lead)
Vox AD50VT (Used for cleans)

Opinions or suggestions?

Anyone's AB switches are good, but I recommend Boss(it can select loops and stuff), Morley (It's an AB/Y switch. You can run one output or both together) or DOD if you wanna save cash.

AS for an overdrive pedal, there's the famous Ibanez TS808 tube screamer. Also, the Boss OD-3 is good.

Remember to buy patch cables, too.

I thin kthat looks fine. Are you really going to need to use the Vox for cleans though? Seems like it would be too much to carry around.

For an OD, I use the Boss SD-1. It works out well. I get the boost and it adds the crunch I want. You have to play with it a little because with the tone on middle, it adds a good bit of treble.

The Vox isnt neccesary, and Id probably only use it at home, but itd be better for home cause its quieter :P

Although the vox has excellent cleans, you can find better for below that price range.

I would check out some small fenders.

EDIT: Check out a small fender tube combo. If you're recording it will work well for recording your cleans because it's so small, and for live situations you can just mic it and it will be great.

I definately would do something wiser than the vox for your cleans. The vox excells mainly in it's crunchy rock tones.

^Well, if you're only going to use it for cleans, sell it. Then buy a small fender.

if you get a fender tube combo, you can operate it as a head, it has an output in the back, and you can use the a/b/y switch to switch between the fender and the marshall
#11
You mean run 2 heads (well 1 combo used as a head) into 1 cab, and then switch between heads?

well i have the two inputs on the cab, so when i run with the a/b/y, its either all 5150, or all blues junior.
When using both inputs (stereo), each head has 2 speakers each, as far as I know.

And yeah, if you're gonna have a second amp for cleans, and the headroom of the 100w isn't all that useful, then get the 50w.
These go to eleven...

I was thinking of maybe instead of running 2 amps or amp heads, just improving on the Marshall cleans with a chorus or EQ pedal.
