    I'm making the jump to rack rig, again. Tired are the days of hauling head, cabinet, pedalboard, pedals, etc...
    Currently running Pod HD Pro > Matrix GT800 > Marshall 1960 w/ V30s. Too afraid to ditch the cab yet. Spend a lot of time programming patches, but it sounds just as good as my Mesa or JVM did.

    Current rig:

    Guitar > Line 6 G50 > Korg Pitchblack > Boss NS2 > ENGL Savage > Cab

    Dream Rig:

    Guitar > Line 6 G55 > Axe FX II > Matrix GT1000FX > Cab + FOH + Wireless in ears

    Love the ENGL to death, but at this point I'm not gigging enough to justify a tube head. I'd rather have a lightweight setup and the ability to record at home silently.

    Current Rig: Guitar > TC Hall of Fame Reverb > Way Huge Aqua Puss Delay > Peavey JSX > Randall XL 4x12

    I have a 6 band eq I use sometimes but I havent gotten around to tweaking it yet.

    My dream rig is essentially an Orange 4x12 with a Rockerverb Head and my effects. Oh, and a Jerry Cantrell Wah.

    this one

    I go direct stereo from axe-fx.
    the poweramp + cab is purely for my monitoring needs. I ask for kick +bass + hihat in my onstage monitors.
    works great.

    We can honestly say our favorite rig is the new setup we built for the past tour =) Played on mix 'n match gear forever, and now we finally have something that covers all our needs/wants for the live shows.

    Full custom Aftershock cab backline with RGB Lighting sequenced to the click, custom dummy bass cab rack, twin Pod HD Pro setups. No heads on stage, no cables on stage =)

    I love mine; not exactly a standard "metal" rig, but I get some great Scale the Summit-esque tones out of it.
    Ibanez RGA121 with Seymour Duncans into a Mesa Express 5:50 with a MXR Carbon Copy and a MXR 10 band eq. Very simple, and sounds exactly how I want it to.

    My current live rig consists of an EMG81-7/60-7 loaded BC Rich Platinum Pro Warlock (A standard), an EMG81/85 loaded BC Rich NJ Deluxe JR V (C# standard) and an EMG81/60 loaded BC Rich IT Speed V (drop B), run into an MXR M135 Smart Gate, MXR Carbon Copy analog delay, Dunlop Crybaby From Hell, MXR Dime Distortion and an MXR Micro Flanger, Peavey foot switch, all led into a Peavey 6505+ head and two Marshall 1960A 4x12 cabs. You may call me old-fashioned, but that's what works for me.

    so basically, BC Rich-> MXR-> Peavey/Marshall

    This is the last time I played live:
    super modified Jackson DKMG -> Bogner line 6 -> direct out to 6505

    The line 6 volume was controled via line 6 pedal and was on constant solo mode (my solo settings) while the 6505 volume never changed. When I soloed, I jsut turned the Line 6 up to just over the volume of the 6505.

    Incredible tone. Like, Incredibruh.
