Marshall MG412 Cab
(the cab they sit on is just to keep them off the ground)
In The Pile:
First Act 10 Watt amp (converted into head built into cab)
*used only for Fuzz purposes (the speaker in the cab has been slit by a razorblade as an honor to harsh fuzz and the kinks; can get that great bassman blasting sound)
Behringer 90 watt bass amo (for bass only)
Fender Mini tonemaster
all amps, cabs, and pedals are stock. except DS-1, i changed the switch to a Radioshack momentary switch spst. has a bit more treble and bite to it (never leaves my board)
the vox is miked with a senneheiser 835 vocal mic at a weird angle. (didnt have a stand so i just snuck it onto it)
the MG's cab is miked with a Shure SM57 at a more common angle on the top right speaker.
tons of fun has been had with blending the overdriven amp and clean amp combinations with the mixer.
The mics from the amps run into the mixer and run into my pc and i record, edit, and maim them in audacity.
for fun and modeling purposes, i have a Line6 Toneport UX2. (the headphone out goes into the mixer to record into audacity)
my mixer is a Samson MDR 1064.
Caitlyn was my most expensive and she can do some amazing things. she's stayed stock and is perfect the way she is, and is never gonna change; I love her just like the one and only woman in my life that she was named after. (Fender Pure Nickel Wound .10's)
Emily was my first electric. full black and boring. over about two years, ive dismembered and violated (messed up) her in so many ways, its hard to remember some of them. the result was this angry (almost bitchy) guitar with alot of bite (an honor to who it was named for). i did a "poor man's scallop" of the last 10 frets. the kiss my ax was the first mod i ever did (walmart stickers). all thats in her is a Seymour duncan Phat Cat, a Gibson 500 K pot (both from Nashville GC) (Ernie Ball Rock and Rolls .10's)
Sebastian was won off of eBay for $98. I used a left over neck pickup from Emily as
sebastian's bridge p'up and the neck and middle are dragonfires (also from ebay ~$45). i sanded the neck lightly, lowered the action; still a bit of a strugle to handle the neck (had to sand the allen wrench to make it fit), and removed the tremolo cover. (Ernie Ball Rock and Rolls .10's)
The Epiphone is my little devil. brass bridgepins are the only thing not stock. great sound unplugged/mic'd, the only complaint is the piezo dont really like it, but i have the Samich for that. (D'addrio's EJ16 light phosporous bronze .10's)
I think I've said about all I can, anything i missed can be seen in the pics. s103.photobucket.com/albums/m133/knives490
