    Thought it would be fun to talk about our favorite setups (which must include Marshall somewhere in the chain, of course). I'm talking the basics that you deem as your preferred tone. Tracking many have large pedal boards, etc. but obviously not all pedals in a 20 pedal chain are engaged at the same time.

    I'll start:

    -2015 Gibson Les Paul Traditional Limited Edition (slim taper neck) w/'59 Tributes
    OR
    2011 ESP Eclipse w/EMG 60/81
    -Straight into JVM410HJS w/Tung Sol Power Amp tubes and EH12AX7 Gold in V1
    -Mesa 2x12 cab with UK V30s
    -Turbo Tuner ST-300 and Nunaber Wet in the loop

    Your turn.

    Most Basic:

    Gibson Les Paul => Polytune Mini => Tube Screamer Mini => MXR Reverb => Marshall SV20C

    More Flexible Setup:

    Gibson Les Paul => Morley 20/20 Wah Lock => Polytune Mini => Tube Screamer Mini => TC Spark Mini => Echoplex Delay => MXR Reverb => Marshall SV20C

    Traditional band / show volume - LP Standard - touch of delay - 1959 - 2 1960B with Greenbacks.

    Current show volume LP Standard - optional compressor + boost or OCD or Archer or RAT [depending on mood and room] - touch of delay - JMP2203 - at least one 1960B with Greenbacks.

    Townhouse volume - LP Standard - optional compressor + boost - Empress Heavy - more delay - 1959 - 1960B with Greenbacks or 1x12 with EVM12L.

    Small travel rig - LP Standard - optional compressor + boost - Empress Heavy or OCD or Archer or RAT [depending on mood and room] - touch of delay - Satellite 'Cuda [think JTM45 with Billy Gibbon's sweaty balls of tone] - 1x12 with EVM12L.

    Minimalist, just to play at home...
    ESP 400AT > Marshall SV20H (or SC20H) > 1960A (with Helatone 60L's)

    Minimalist, for playing a gig...
    ESP ST203 FR > Marshall JMD:1 > 1960A (with Helatone 60L's)

    I can have fun with just my Charvel Fusion (£370) and my VS65R (£69) that I fitted a 16 ohm G12T-100 into.
    Spring reverb onboard, Clean is clean, OD chugs, Tone Zone and EMG-HZ singles cover most bases.

    My needs are few, but my wants are many!

    Rock n Roll and Blues setup:

    Orville Les Paul Custom with Suhr Aldrich set --> Peterson Strobostomp HD Tuner --> Boss SD-1 --> 1982 Marshall JCM 800 2203 --> JCM 800 412 with original Celestion G12-65s

    Hard Rock and Metal setup:

    ESP M-II Candy Apple Red with Suhr Aldrich/ESP Hotrail --> Peterson Strobostomp HD Tuner --> KHDK Ghoul JR. OD --> JCM 2000 DSL 100 --> TC Electronics Spark Mini (for solo boost) --> JCM 900 412 with Marshall UK V30s


    As you see, as long as I have a Marshall, my tuner and a boost pedal I'm set. This is of course keeping things simple.

    My current homestudio pedalboard looks more like this:

    Minimal? Guitar, of some sort, dont care which overly they all rock, to an amp. Minimally would mean small to me so the 6101 combo. Possibly the mini Jubilee head with 1x12. As an option, the Zoom G3xn multi pedal in loop.

    Between? Smaller venue.
    Two guitars,, one with a whammy, to say the TSL122 or Jubilee 2558 combo or JVM 410 w 2x12.
    Small pedal board with Zoom G3, mini Morley wah, mini OD, wireless, mini tuner.

    Most venues.
    Pick an amp, they rotate. Large pedal board with larger versions of above goodies plus EH Micro Synthesizer, wireless.
    3 guitars, 1 with a whammy bar.
    Outside possibly the 4010 or JVM halfstack.
