I just got my first decent amp, a Traynor YCV20WR. Nice 15W tube, 2 channels with shared eq, reverb. Simple but nice sounding with my 2001 Ibanez Artstar AS120 and a Pro Co Rat for some of the distortion or just the nice sound of the amp. Just wondered who else rocked out and what you play. Bass players are always welcome.

I have an Ovation 1771LX, Fender GDC 100 SCE, Fender MIM Strat (2000), Crate MX120, small Digitech modeling pedal.. I have those German locking tuners on my Strat and I also have SD Hot Rails in the bridge. I want to get Fender Noiseless or Lace Sensors for the neck and middle pickups. I also want a nice small tube amp one day.

For the small tube, the Epiphone Valve Juniors and even Blackhearts are a bunch of fun for almost no money and skip the noiseless and go lace sensor or anything dimarzio or seymour duncan. Noiseless are a bit overrated and strangle the sound.

I have an Ibanez AS200AV, and a Melancon Pro Artist with Blackface Lollars pickups fitted with a strat 5 way Voodoo Tonecustom pickup switching to make the single coils act in parallel, and a mid boost, etc.

Amps I have a Roland Cube 60 (quite nice for small gigs) as well as a Suhr Badger 30 head with Divided by 13 cab. For effects I have Boss DD6 that I use for a stereo setup between the cube and badger for certain gigs.

Planning on buying a Ceriatone ODS amp in the near future.

Nice thread by the way.

I just threw a TubeWorks Real Tube overdrive in my chain. Its different but kinda cool. Need a few days to mess around with the tone. @ bloodydoorknob, i am truly jealous of the little setup. Nice freakin guitar.

I need to get a new guitar. I have only been playing for six months. Had to give a friend their guitar back. I enjoyed playing, but it was hard to find my own style. My teacher had a classical background, and it just make learning a little boring.

I think my next guitar will be a Seagull S6. I had one prior to my friend loaning my his and it was a great value.

If anyone lives near a Guitar Center in the US, this is a good weekend to go browsing as they have a ton of great in-store markdowns. I walked into one tonight and asked what were some of the best deals they were offering on amps, and wound up going home with a used Marshall MG250DFX for $175 ($500 new). I had to get out of there before I would up buying a beautiful Martin guitar for $500. If you're looking for gear, this is the week to go. They probably have some deals on IEMs, too.

They are having their labor day sale all weekend.
I scored a pork pie drum throne for ~40% off their regular price. They didn't even have it marked, pays to ask.

I was tempted to buy a few other things as well.
