Show us your... guitar rig!

this is part of it - the home recording side with stereo signal (L=effects, R=dry) going through DI's with cabinet simulators, tube A/D converter into S/PDIF, mesa v-twin tube preamp

pedalboard has tube DI buffer to prevent pickup loading, several stompboxes, noise suppressor, rack tuner, isolated power supplies for the pedals

Just enquired about one, i know they are meant for condenser recording mic's, but how well do they do the job for guitar?

My set up is simple LP classic w/ emg 81 bridge and 60 neck, into marshall dsl 100 with a boss eq in the loop. i need a lead boost...does a tubescreamer sound good when put on top of distortion?

Looks like im in tha market for one.
thanks.

Here is my current rig.
Hope you like!


Not shown is a 65 Twin Reverb Reissue when more wattage is needed.

Pair of Andersons too? Very nice setup, can you show us a diagram of the setup, nice to see how you loop it all together, good quailty monster cables too, i keep trying to tell Tim about the importance of cables, but he still swears by his 'Supermarket trolley dash' Cables.

Anyone else echo the importence of high grade cables?

As far as cables I do use Monster for the guitar and amp connections. I can hear a difference between those and less expensive cables such as Planet Waves or the typical bargain bin types.
The pedalboard though is wired with George L's. Easy to assemble and sonically pure to my ears anyway!
There is a difference as far as i am concerned, but its what i want to hear. Some people don't care. Clean, quiet reproduction of my guitars tonal nuances, which the Andersonsons have in abundance is what i want!
BTW the TA Tele has the Kinman Broadcaster pups installed. Very fat and noiseless single coils. He got it right!

Very nice setup, your VHT box, is it a valve preamp? some people say your Modulating effects should come after your distortions but i notice you have them before and after, thats the beauty of individual effects, you can see what works and what doesn't, and its always changing too,
im always looking for new pedals to try.

Lee,

thanks for the compliment.
The VHT Valvulator is a Tube buffer that drops the direct guitar signal from high to low impedence in order to allow the signal not to be affected by the loading of your pedals.

As far as placement, I think there is quite a bit of flexability depending on what you want to hear.

Cheerio!

that's exactly what i use the tube DI for - works a treat

you can go nuts with cable - if you have a trebly spiky guitar you can smooth it out by using the longest and cheapest cable you can find

coaxial cable is like a capacitor (low pass filter) i.e. as the frequency increases the impedance to ground decreases, therefore the high frequencies go straight to ground and the low frequencies go through to the amp - capacitance increases with length

i use high bandwidth cable tv coax - it is the lowest capacitance cable you can buy and make my own leads, makes a huge difference

i also use a heavy mahogany body guitar with high output pickups through a mesa dual rectifier :D

You use Coax cable for patch leads?
