Top 5 most essential gear.
 
You have your half-stack, guitar, and a cord that connects the two. What are the top 5 most essential pieces of gear you need after that? Ok so the strings, plectrums, straps, and other little things are a GIVEN. What about rackmounts? Preamps? Equilizers? Compressors? The list goes on and on.

Plectrums are fairly handy...
Oh, and make sure your guitar has strings on it!

metal_monkey 2006-05-26 03:44

picks, strings, extra guitars, guitar strap, strap locking system

Equalizer

1) tuner
2) strings
3) picks
4) guitar strap
5) something to hang yourself

strap is given... so its considered 0 in my 1-5

1. duct tape... straplocks arent strong enough for a les paul thats guna be swingin around like a sledgehammer

2. 31 band equalizer in the fx loop

3. chromatic tuner (preferably pedal)

4. Delay, nothing sounds cooler than well calculated delay

5. booster pedal or a channel selector switch... anything to get those solos louder than the rhythm

equalizer, good pickups, noise gate/reducer, plectrums are nice too ;)

other than the basic amp, guitar, cables, picks, strings, ect...

footswitch
tuner
noisegate
whammy(wh4)
dl4

basically my pedalboard.

That's the only thing required.. the soundguy will handle the rest...

a tuner could be handy ...

and a delay ...

Slabbefusk 2006-05-26 14:36

Guitar -> Cable -> Amp -> ROCK!

ThornsOfHeaven200 2006-05-26 15:32

How is duct tape stronger than a straplock, because i too have had a straplock rip out of my guitar when i swung it around my back, flew like a damn bird, quite embarassing.

Soulinsane 2006-05-27 01:42

Please, stop slinging guitars around. The straplock might hold together just fine but the guitar wood will not. At least use longer wood screws, pre drill the holes, and put wood glue on the screw threads when installing the strap buttons. That will help more then anything else.

In no order:

Boss NS2/similar noisegate.
Boss DD-3 Delay.
EQ Pedal/rack(ie: my Fish n' Chips EQ).
Volume pedal.
Dead silence... that's when inspiration comes to me.
