One of the best modern rigs Ive seen on here.
Helix AND Seymour Duncan Powerstage 700. Jeez.
You win the internet today sir.
appreciate the kind words lewis!...It was definitely a work in progress for a good while, stoked to have it all done. I'm super happy with the results as well.
you are very welcome dude.
I love it when it all comes together. So rewarding.
Suffice to say we need plenty of video demos of this rig in action now though haha
Updated the bass pedalboard a bit. Started to rethink the whole "dual-amp" situation and decided to run it all through one amp, so I'm using the A/B-Y backwards to mono-sum the two signals from the POG. This keeps my bass tone intact throughout the whole chain and lets me overdrive the "guitar" octave-up tone seperately. Just gotta pull the back off to feed the power cables through, the gap is just ever so slightly too narrow. The Monoprice tuner is a new addition, it seems to work well, which is a pleasant surprise given the price point ($20 USD).
looking at the rack setup again, you should get some LED backlighting in there for dark stages. Would look great seeing a colour glow around that Powerstage
light like that only works for me in certain setups, but would in that for sure imo.
I totally have a bunch of LED strips and stuff left over from a prior 6505+ 112 conversion I did...may have to put some in there and see how it looks.
oooh thats handy haha. Look forward to seeing that
edit: would then go very well with the colour/glow of the floor controller too
This is my 5153 with a vintage USA Fender cab. RG520 in that pic as well.
My OR with vintage SG systems cab. I really need to get a Orange PPC212 ordered one of these days.
Here is my rig updated since Oct 2017
added a EVH 112 cab, scaled it down from 212 to 112..bedroom friendly a bit
Otherwise would be Line6 G10 wireless;
Dunlop EVH 5150 drive as preamp;
Seymour Duncan powerstage 70
Sony bluetooth used as Background track play back - but really dig this little monster, really loud and clear with BGM
my rig rundown
playthrough of the rig
I can't stop building pedalboards.

How are you liking the MS-3's effects? Been on the fence about ditching most of my board for one of these, the small form factor + amp controls is very tempting.
So, you're feeding the octave up from the POG into the Boss OD, then summing it back with the dry signal using the A/B-Y box?
Interesting idea. How's it working out? I know lots of people use distortion with clean blends to preserve the low end but I don't think I've heard of someone doing it with an octave up before.
I'd like to know the same thing. Been thinking about getting one as well.
Traded in one of my Rectifiers in on a TC-50. Took a new group shot.
Exactly. It's not so much to retain any bass tone, but to actually create a pseudo-guitar effect for choruses, solos, etc. Works really well, to be honest! Really fills out the band's sound, since we only have one guitarist and he's a pretty shoegazey player.
I do a more traditional blend on the Source Audio After Shock, which is my main "bass channel" distortion box.
Just bought a 4 x 12 cab to go with my JSX
The cab comes with V30s which match perfectly. Looking forward to gigging this thing this weekend.
JSX is with a tech at the moment. It's developed some weird popping sound so hopefully I get it back quick.
