Guest Posted November 18, 2000 Share Posted November 18, 2000 I noticed a few people getting away from another thread to post their rigs so I thought I would run this to give us guitar players a place to confess our love for our favorite rigs. Anyone else feel free to jump in, I'm a novice piano player too. I have a Korg N-364 but want to get a good digital piano, The synth action isn't good for piano practice. My favorite guitar is a 60's reissue Strat that I've mod'd with a graphite nut and saddle, locking tuners and removed the string tree. Most of this was to to keep string breakage to a min and preserve tuning when using trem. I also have a G&L that might as well be a Strat, it's also a great guitar that I enjoy playing, they both have a rosewood fretboard. I have a Washburn P-290 with a carved top & Buzz Feiton tuning system but I've come to really not like it very much. It sounds great but guess I just got too used to that Strat feel, can't beat it http://www.musicplayer.com/ubb/biggrin.gif For strings I use D' Addario( is that spelled right??) 11's now but when I get with another band and my fingers are in better shape I'm gonna switch to 12's, gotta love that TONE (standard tuning). for pedals I use a Dunlop Crybaby (though I'm thinking of getting a Vox, I heard one the other day and I really loved the vocal like range of the sweep), a Boss Blues Driver for gain, a sansamp direct pedal for real solid state sounding distortion ( plus I can use it to run direct if my amp goes down, beats plugging straight into the mixer ) and an inline pedal tuner, Pretty simple. I use the reverb on my amp, it sounds pretty good. for amps I have a Crate VC 5212, 50 watt all tube amp. Does anyone else use Crate's?? A lot of locals use them but I haven't seen too many national acts running them. I think mine has GREAT tone and it's LOUD, many local players that sit in have commented how good it sounds. The clean and dirty channels both rock as far as I'm concerned. It does weigh a ton though, one of these years I'm gonna get smart and put wheels on it!! Well, that's my 5 cents, what's everyone else using?? Phil. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
