    Vince's new rig (pics, video, awesomeness)

    Being into modelers the past few years, I found I was spending more time getting trippy sounds out of the Axe FX instead of actually making music, and this year I set my sights on getting back to a tube amp and going a bit simpler. As I expected, I'm incredibly inspired by the new amp and I'm writing again. I just set it, and go.

    So this is me going simple. Still fairly damn complex I play live, I want a dynamic sounding rig I can unpack and set up in less than 2 minutes, and that's exactly what I have here.

    The lowdown:
    3 channel Mesa Triple Rectifier w/ Series loop mod
    Line 6 POD HD500 attached to a Pedaltrain 2 floorboard
    Pedalsnake 18' cable that runs MIDI, one stereo Y cable, one mono cable, and powers the HD500 all through one cable that packs up fast into the rack.
    RJM Mini Amp Gizmo to make the Mesa MIDI switchable
    and I slave out the Mesa to Chris' favorite gaudy-ass dB meter

    I'm running the 4 cable method with the HD500 and the Mesa, so they're in each other's FX loops. THe HD500 is simply for pre and post preamp effects and changing channels on the Mesa. The gate, overdrives, delays, and wah in the HD500 are awesome and I love using them with this amp. The sound is just enormous.

    I'm liking the red channel more for rhythm guitar and the orange channel more for lead, but I made sure to keep an orange channel rhythm patch ready to go as well because sometimes I like variety.

    Here's a few pics of the rig:

    the artistic shot (for Drew, he likes these sorts of things)

    the full rig, kinda resembles ET


    pedalboard plugs

    and of course the gratuitous blinky lights pic for Chris and Rog

    I couldn't have demoed it better myself:

    Gotta love the boy I'm starting him out right, he can sing "Run to the Hills" all by himself.

    That part where he switches pickups is priceless.
