gotcha
I'd invest in a delay pedal. (only because rack delays are like 300+ bucks)
Maybe a phase shifter.

Furman power conditioner
Rocktron hush or ISP decimator rack noise reducers
Korg tuner
Carvin EQ

There are a ton of neat accessories out there that don't really affect your actual tone (except the EQ of course).

Maybe a G-Major would be a good choice if you want some effects. IMO, I would prefer something like that over pedals because it's easier to control.
Major of 7 String Legion 7 > 6

Carvin DC747
Ibanez RG2228

Didnt you say you were going to play through a PA?
Why would you need a power amp? ( I assume you're talking about a tube one, yes?)

Well until I get the Bugera 6260 head, I'm using my power amp....
I can reccommend the one I have , it's made by "Ultra Linear" - a 400 watt 2 channel power amp.

Pics & stuff are in my profile.


But be sure to use an FX proccessor or preamp with it, straight in, the tone is very bright and harsh. (and maybe an EQ too)

Hope this sort of helps .

and one more question would it be easer to buy a rack case (if so reccomend me one) or to build one. I'm pretty good with wood and stuff so ya

Isn't that power amp one that you would use for a car audio system? And TS, if you wanna go all out on a tube amp, the Mesa 2:100 or a VHT power amp will rape your ears. And if you want Solid State, Crowne power amps are amazing...

I run a G-major in my FX loop and it is great. All the effects you need in one unit.

Thats what I would recommend.
Framus Cobra
Marshall JCM 900
peavey 5150

Mesa 4x12
