You had me at IIc+ Coliseum
This is the coolest thing ever. Hetfield used a coliseum, but this amp belong to fucking PRINCE?
I didn't know it was his when I bought it. More of a pleasant surprise.
Guitar Player magazine did an article on it right after he passed away. I sent to Mesa for a checkup. They're the ones who took all the photos seen in the article. Thats me quoted in it too. Its a fun read. Check it out.
lol dude wtf! Marshalls, Marks, and loooots of cabs! It's like my greatest hits presets in my Axe Fx. Unreal!
Maybe he's trying to build an analog rig with the options of an Axe FX. Hmmm....
New amp has joined my ENGL family.
Wow! What a clean looking 5150! I'd really like to own another one someday, they rip so hard.
Yeah, it really has very little wear and tear.
That's the most brutal-looking Oreo I've ever seen
Overhauled the main board. Should be enough to cover 2 albums worth of sounds.
Looks amazing Bloody Inferno.
Admittedly it's still a mess underneath. I haven't properly tidied up the wiring just in case inspiration hits and I have to swap a pedal or 4. So far this is the "simplest" big board I've assembled. By simple being all my switching only happens with the bottom 4 pedals and it was the easiest in terms of midi programming.
You have some great pedals on that board. How’s the freqout & whammy?
Both are great. I've been a whammy user for a while since I bought the Whammy IV many years ago. The DT is my favorite of the lot. The Whammy V is also great, but I went with the DT because of the unique Detune feature. I've written 2 songs so far that requires both sides of the pedal.
As for the Freqout it's not quite Ebow/Sustainer pickup but it's still awesome. Definitely convenient for instant feedback and does open for a lot of possibilities.
Looks great I’m sure they all work well.
It's a shitty picture, but i'm really enjoying this rig right now. I have a second 7-string from Wood Guerilla coming in next week to top it off. And i have a 2 fenders for more standard sounds. But this rig can pretty much do anything.
Both cabs contain a V30 and a G12h-75 creamback, the Ygon (left) is a custom cab from a Belgian builder. It is more forward sounding while the zilla super fatboy sounds like a 4x12 and has more bottom end, so they complement eachother quite well.
The pedal tray contains a precision drive i rarely use, Fortin Fuzz, Fortin Zuul, and atm a maxon od 808 i never use. So 2 pedals will probably be replaced by some strymon stuff and a whammy 5 for better tracking on the whammy
The Helix midi switches my amp channels and settings.

Recently I realized I had all the gear, minus the actual pedal board, to build a portable 100 watt all-in-one board.
Guitar with Snark Super Tight Tuner (works with all guitars and bass)
> 1 of 3 different flavor boxes.
TC Eyemaster for chainsaw, Joyo OD (tube screamer clone) for regular boost and Metal Zone for extreme thickness and girth.
> Mooer 15 Brown Sound (5150 in a pedal IMO!)
> Danelectro Fish N Chips EQ (same settings I used when I had it in the loop of my real 5150)
> TC Iron Curtain Noise Gate (not as good as the ISP but good enough and 1/2 the price)
> "100 Watt" power amplifier -- $5 on ebay so I bought 5.
> Marshall MG412A cab (cheap, light and sounds great IMO!)
The actual board was $27 on Amazon and came with the velcro already applied. (Pedalboard DIY Make By Aluminium Alloy 15.7"x5.1" Guitar Effect Pedal Board - Sold by: GraceBuy Music)
I'm very happy with this! I don't know if I'd trust the "100 watt" pwr-amp to a live show... but it certainly rocks at home.
I left a bit of a gap in the middle because I have a LoFi pedal and Chorus that I'll throw in "the loop" once in a while.
Yup, it's sitting on my big, fat, heavy, amazing modded 5150. I understand that I can get 'bedroom' volume out of my 5150.
I just don't feel the need to flip on the monster when I'm just noodling at home, plus I had all this stuff not being used.
*For recording I'll still go 5150 > TwoNotes Captor > interface for the real deal, and for live/jam I'll still use my 5150/Mesa 412.
That cab is wild
