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.

Last edited by 29A : 2006-05-26 at 13:08. Reason: Ok so there's the given.

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

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

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.

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.

Dead silence... that's when inspiration comes to me.
