Petrucci's rig costs ten thousands of dollars. Don't even think about it. On a budget, try something like a Peavey Valveking.

Petrucci's rig actually doesn't cost tens of thousands of dollars. You have his sound down with a Mesa Mark IV and his EBMM sig which can be had for a total of very roughly 4k. Anyways, what gear do you currently have? And how much money are you willing to spend?
