Things change. We all know that. But I have been in a turmoil lately and have been switching my live rig, gig by gig for the past year.
Last Saturday I put together what I think was the best solution for me in years.
Here it is.
It is a two amp setup. With my main amp being a Kingsley Deluxe 30 into a Two-Rock 1x12 cab loaded with a Celestion G12K-85. The second is an old HiWatt 50 watter going into a Sound Motion 2x12 Leslie style cab. My pedalboard is (in order of chain) Boss TU-2 tuner,Seymour Duncan Pickup booster (for a clean boost), an old Rat, EH Big Muff, Boss DDL, Budda Wha, Digitech Expressor pedal and then into a Radial Tonebone A/B/Y switcher.
The small Roland amp on top of the Sound Motion cab is for my acoustic guitar. I use it as a preamp and monitor. I shape the EQ and effects and then go post EQ and effects into the board.
Here is a couple of pix.
What is your latest live set up? Show us some pix.





cheers

This is my live rig. I'm only gigging on a worship band these days at a 2600 seat church, so I can open it up pretty well.

Still do. But I lent it to a friend back in the spring and I haven't seen it since.:frown: I'm sure I'll see it soon.

By the way.......NICE amps. Every one of those are top drawer.

Well I can't speak for tomorrow but today it's the following pedal board: Wah is a Teese Wheels of Fire.




and that's my LP leaning up against a '69 Bandmaster Reverb and a 1 x 12 cab with Scumbag speaker. Sorry for the big pic.

I just SCORED a bottom cab to go with my 2-12 JTM60, so here's a pic (not my rig) of what it'll look like in a few days:



Finding the matching cab was a bitch, took a very long time. 2 - 12 Marshall Heritage Celestions 70w ea.

Channel switching handles most of my overdrive needs, for pedals I use a Boss tuner, SD-1 (just in case), Cry Baby, and a Dan Echo.

99% of my guitar time is on the R-9. The strat on a couple of tunes. But I seem to find myself playing the Hammond more and more, close to 1/2 the songs now I think.

Thanks, yeah they only lasted for a couple of years ('95-96?), then were superceded by the JCM600 series I think it is. I've read about guys cooking them, but I've never had a problem. The Canadian ones were shipped with EL34s, US with 5881s.
I prefer the tone of my JCM800 4010 1-12 combo, but for gigs I really like the channel switching the JTM60 offers.
If anyone finds one in good shape, they are a good amp for reasonable $. If it's imported from the US, make sure it's been changed to 34s.

Edit: received my cab today, looks really good. Bit of a beer stain on the grillcloth (but isn't that what a Marshall is supposed to look like?) a couple small tears in the tolex that I can repair in a flash. Speakers sound fine (and yes of course I popped the back off to confirm they were Marshall Heritage Celestions).
