List your gear!!!
Post by tekbow on Mar 14th, 2010, 10:14am

Hey guys, always good to start a new thread as i say, and given this is the soldano forum we get lost in the amps sometimes. so was wondering is anyone interested in a list your gear type thread? not so much pics, just what stuff you own, what you have owned in the past, anything notable about the instruments

i know people sometimes stick this in their introduction threads (mod can we have a sticky intro thread for new people??), but thought it might be good to get it all in one place, am wildly interested in gear smiley

let say, only 1 pic per post if any, and it has to be a group shot if you can?

owned:

ESP Mk II deluxe (old style with slanted neck SC)
Peavey wolfgang standard in black
Ibanez JS1000 (factory freak, had a gorgeous flame neck)
MIM Fender 50's strat

Peavey bandit 112 (my first amp)
Marshall valvestate VS100
Marshall anniversary series head
Marshall TSL 601
Peavey 5150

Own:

1993 MIJ fender squire strat (one of the last MIJ squires i think)

the stuff in my sig at the bottom grin

The PRS has a brazillian board.
I'm convinced i've never seen a better quilt on an axis.
the MIJ 62 RI is actually my favourite (dont tell the other guitars..)
The Kotzen tele is one of the last also as its been discontinued and is signed.
The TS808 is vintage chipped.
The Ramhead cost way too much money.
Oxfuzz is probably the best Fuzzface pedal i've ever heard and nothing behaves better with a wah.

Seeing a lot of these ISP decimators, they're intelligent noise gates right? how do they sound

Set the level and it eliminates signals at that threshold. (hum/hand/vibrations) YouTube them. I think it and judicious use of a good compressor (Barber) help me sound a bit less like a hack and more like someone that plays a little....

Good thread! - And mine are...

Fender Strats (two similar): bodies are alder with brown/black sunburst, necks are left-handed/reversed 'large' headstock with the rosewood boards. #1 has x2 DiMarzio Tone Zones. #2 has a DiMarzio Super & x2 stock singles. Each guitar has a volume only; the tone circuits are removed.

Soldano Atomic 16 combo's (two): both black, JJ tubes throughout, stock speakers. These amps run together so nicely, A/B footswitching; one clean, one dirty.

Soldano Hot Rod 50 head: black, Sovtek tubes throughout.
Marshall 8412 cabinets (two), with stock 35W Celestions.

Vox V810 Overdrive, Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail Plus, Boss NF-1 Noise Gate. Oh, and Klotz 'KIK' cables.

Taylor 214 acoustic (early model); soundhole pickups DiMarzio Supernatural and Elemental, or mic'd with Shure SM-57.

I find the two A-16's so much more dynamic (and fun) than the HR-50 rig... Hm, so after 15-ish years, it may be 'decision time' soon!!!

Edit: Dumped the Telecaster and Explorer, picked up two more amps, although not Soldano. So, to compliment my moods, I now have a Marshall Vintage Modern and a 2010 revision Mesa Dual Rectifier in addition to the Decatone. Mesa because I was so damn impressed with the newer Rectifiers I couldn't see me not having one, and the Vintage Modern because I think it's one of Marshall's best amps, definitely of recent times. KT66 JTM45/100 based with master volume/loop/gain boost and mid boost. With these 3 amps, I have everything covered....that is until I start looking to get a SLO!

Also changed my primary speakers to WGS ET-65's, and put 2 V30's in a 212 cab.

Guitar wise, I'm set on the PRS DGT. I've thought about fine tuning with different pickups for different situations, but the stock pickups are incredibly versatile and work well for me.

Along with whats in my signature, I've got a Hammond XK-3 keyboard organ and I really want to check into the new Hammond SK-2 keyboard organ.

For the future, I'd love the luxury of a Decatone practice/rhythm guitarist amp with all my lead stage amps being SLOs or Soldano mod'ed SLOs for different voicings. Hell I'm even day dreaming about a custom Soldano amp head into a custom Leslie speaker cabinet. shocked

A killer Squire Strat and a 20 watt Crate amp, with one of those coily cords, who needs a expensive PRS and a soldano..... with my DOD distortion pedal it just sounds awesome, as good as any Soldano or Bogner smiley and I saved alot of money to boot

Seeing a few MCartys around, wondering why these are being chosen?

Especially interested in views on the DGT as it was based on a Mcarty trem
