    Long time listener, first time caller...lol. I've lurked on and off for years and always found really great info and conversations, but until relatively recently I've not been playing a 7, so I never joined.

    About 6 months ago I was listening to lots of Gorguts, Artificial Brain, and Ingurgitating Oblivion and I really got the itch to try a 7 again...so due in great part to the info I found on the epic thread here, I took the plunge with a used Schecter KM7 MK1. I've barely touched my 6s since.

    And then a couple of weeks ago my band that has been on hiatus for 4.5 years (honestly I thought it was over forever) got back together and we decided to write all new material on the 7. So now I'm in full-on 7 writing mode, and wanting to be part of a 7 community...

    At any rate, thought I'd share a pic my current rig by way of introduction.. 7StringRig_Feb2018_Small.jpg

    Running a stock Schecter KM7 MK1 into an EB Jr. Volume pedal, into an Axe FX 2>Matrix GT800>Mesa Recto OS 4x12. Using the Fractal MFC-101 MK2 with three Dunlop Volume X expression pedals. I run samples and noise tracks via the Digitech Jamman solo on top of the rack and occasionally break out the Ebow for some drone-y stuff...

    I basically use the AxeFX to replicate a Dual Recto/Pedal Switcher/TC Electronic G-Major rig from a few years ago. Loved that rig (still have all the parts) but it was getting too much to lug around and too hard to record at home. Main sound is built off of a Recto Red Modern model with a boost and a handful of fx that get sprinkled in as needed. And I'm on an ancient firmware..19.00? I just never got into the FW hype over there, I'm happy with my sound and don't feel like chasing it back down...

    Band is tech-y death with an experimental/proggy bent so I actually use a handful of mid-gain, clean, and weirdo patches.

    I can't say enough about my love for the KM7. Such a great instrument. Looking forward to it being my main guitar for the re-formed band. My only little complaint is that I wish the locking tuners were a little better. Takes a bit more back and forth to tune than I'm used to.

    Anyways, just wanted to say hi...looking forward to hanging out here!

    It is....my wife (though then girlfriend!) got it for me for Xmas when we were in grad school...such an awesome weird pedal. Nothing else quite like it...


    Thanks for all the kind comments! The Craftsman was one of the best gear purchases I've made. I have a lot of pedals that I don't really use regularly but want to be able to grab and hook up without digging through boxes and shelves. Being able to fit the Dual Recto head is a big plus too...keeps the dust off of it, but when I get the all-tube itch, it's just a matter of plugging it into the cab, or running a line out from the THD...

    That's actually a great idea for a road case. Probably cheaper too. I'd remove the left drawers and make that rackspaces. Use the right ones for pedal drawers and and cables. Drill holes and anchor the head thru the feet and to run the cables up thru from the bottom.

    Again, thanks so much!

    Gotta say, the Craftsman is indeed an awesome gear storage hack. Problem is, I've already filled it. Although, I could probably fit a Mark V and JP2c side by side in it...hmmmmmmmmmm....

    Does your band have similar sound to the bands you mentioned because I'm always down for some of that. Gorguts are peak death metal to me personally
