K so this is actually my first time at attempting to start a metal band. Ive played in many punk bands but that music has gone too complete swamp. So i still have my old Epiphone SG which rocks hard, the pick ups are great and i can get a sweet tone out of them but i just recently ordered an ESP-EC-500 in flat black.. I am going all out on this no hold barred. I also just bought a Randall G3 head which i will probably run on Marshall 1960 cabinets.. I will get a slant first then a flat faced. But what i was curious and what this thread is all about is fine tuning your gear to suit your death crunching, ear slaying needs. Personally i am gonna try and get a road case (which is why i asked about them in another thread) so i can have the head and some rack units, such as; Furman power conditioner, Korg rack tuner, Alesis compressor and a graphic eq of some sort which i will research further into.. Whats everyones else preferences? Stomp box's racks whatever gets you blowing down walls.. Bassist and drummers can apply as well. Also any cool ideas and shit are welcome. L personally i am only gonna use the 4 switch midi box i am gonna get with the head so im not really into the stomp boxes. And also if anyone knows of a decent rack piece with multi effect such as harmonies and shit. If i must i might get a boss pedal but other band mates on the font (Singer, Bassist or other guitar player) Kick shit around so..
