    That's a lot of shit! I'm glad I can get most of what I want out of a 2u rack unit.

    When you have a lot of money, full time techs and top security, why buy an Axe Fx when you can buy 2-3 of the real thing. Of course if your sound guy, or your album producer sucks it does not matter what you play, something a lot of people forget when they hear a tone they hate or like. The chain from their fingers to our ears is pretty long.

    Although I envy the option of doing things that way, I'd never have a rig that big. It's just not practical. You can sound just as good, or even better, with a lot less. I see no point in doing things that way.

    To me, a lot more gear = A lot more weight + a lot more setup time + a hell of a lot more chances of something going wrong.

    I'd happily have a separate rig for each style I play though. That would make my life a lot easier.

    Of those 3, JH looks like the winner for me. I'm surprised he's not taking his Roland amp for the clean stuff. He's used that thing since I've been listening to Metallica.

    That's kind of what they're doing though. Guys like Iommi who have 40+ years of material and have to plays songs from different eras, records, etc. sometimes need multiple amps in a live, touring situation. I doubt these guys sit with epic rigs like these in there bedrooms. You can't tweak an amp when playing live in between each song, so when you like the tone of one or two (or even three) channel amps, sometimes you need a to bring a few along to have all your bases covered, not to mention, you'll always need a backup amp or two. I also bet half the rack is used for routing, minor tweaks, and to get the "studio tone" live.

    Although I don't envy having to move all of the SH*T around, you have to admit, there's something about going to a show and seeing a WALL of amps and cabs behind them. It somehow doesn't do it for me when I don't see that (Meshuggah). Then again, I'm a (gear) whore.

    Also, they probably get paid big bucks or free equipment to show off their endorser's gear.

    That's not really my cup of tea, but I understand what you're saying.

    As far as stages go, I'm not really into the whole wall of amps. I really can't explain what I like in a show, but regarding how the stage looks, I love Tool's stage, or Porcupine Tree, that sort of thing. Very little gear, a lot of visuals and cool lighting.

    Dino hasn't used that rig in a while. His current rig is basically this:

    Tom, you forgot to post his bass rig:

    [​IMG]

    :lol:

    Seriously, though, hearing him warm up backstage, Dino's tone is insanely anemic, but that shit works when you've got a seriously tight bass player with a lot of frequency fill in his sound. 1+1 = 10 :agreed:

    I hope to God I NEVER become like Malmsteen...

    The way he treats those guitars is just criminal... laying them out all resting on each other... and like the 50s and 60 strats, just puts them down like I would throw down my microphone stands.

    Too many guitars so that the sentimentality and attachment to the instrument as an extension of oneself just dissapears...

    No wonder Malmsteens playing is so stale and rigid:squint:

    It's funny how Dweezil's rig diminished from 1000 pieces to 1.

    E: And yea, I hate also the way Yngwie treats that stuff... Man, he's got some freaking antique in there and he just doesn't give a fuck?

    Jeff has a nice rig, to bad he doesn't care about his playing anymore. He's solos are gone and I think he has given up on palm muting lol.

    Goes with my theory that the older you get, somehow you need giant racks of shit.
