    Looks cool @316ms, what is the multi switch thing and the orange bit? Also, is that a wah? I am looking for a nice one, if you have a recommendation.

    Have also been considering wireless, can you give any thoughts on your setup for that?

    The looper/switcher is a Switch Dr. Has 4 loops 2/3 functions switches and midi. So one pres of one of 4 foot switches.midi preset, amp channel, and 1 or up to 4 pedals.. example. Clean channel to lead channel.with reverb/delay with wa on. Best one I could find without spending as much money as an amp cost. Made by decibel 11. Great switcher!! Wireless the G50 is great, tried the g30 and noticed tone degrading, had I not had a g50 1st I may not have ever known the g30 wasnt as transparent.. orange pedal is a gogo tuner. Big bright display for old shits like me.lol hope the explanation helps. Cheers

    Is that a 2x12?

    If it’s a 4x12 that headshell is huge...

    Its Friedman BE100. It's not highly regarded because of the dimensions. Check the tone then get back with me

    WITH the side-armor!!

    You don’t see many of those; they were so cool when Mesa offered that package.

    I actually force myself to do this. Last week, played two songs with the bluegrass boys. Needed twangy lead tone for both songs. Did I take....Carvin Bolt T HSS? Tokai 68 replica Strat? Music Man Cutlass? No, took the Custom 24 and played one song in P2 and one in P4 on the 5 way switch. And it was GREAT.

    The BExxx is stoooopid-fantastic! If amp GAS were to accumulate again, it would be for a BE50. But the 100 probably has stuff I haven’t discovered in my Kemper profiles.

    Dammit. There’s that familiar abdominal cramping again...

    Lol, yea the BE is a monumental amp for me. I've flipped some really good amps to arrive and finalize with it. Had a smallbox for a while. It was awsome but not as much bass or gain. Thought I preferred having the sat switch on most of the time with the BE until I discovered the Buxom boost.. good gosh it takes the amp to another level and adds more gain. Which I found interesting for a clean boost.. As Dave informed me it has no diode clipping. So more gain with no squash, so its raw and mean, and of course cleans up into juicy vintage sounds, only downside it does hiss but the feel is euphoric, at least for me.
    The Kemper is a piece of gear I want!! Came close a couple times but then a guitar walked in front of me, like a 17 year ol at the beach right!! Seriously tho.. I'd love to a/b a Kemper and my Be100. I know a player whos mr old school modded marshall who plays one so it must be as regarded as posted!!

    I haven’t seen one with it on their site in a long time, but I’m no expert. Maybe they do still offer them.

    I always thought it looked cool on a stage.

    Michael Britt has beautifully soaked a BE-50 in his Crank-n-Go pack for Kemper, which I’ve been using for several months now. Yes, it is a little saturated at times, but it takes any guitar with any pickups and lets it shine in its own way. Oodles of fun! There isn’t a BE-100 in there, but I wouldn’t doubt he’d do it if it were available.

    It's not much of a rig at the moment, nor will it ever be I guess. But it provides a bit of enjoyment for me.

    That's my Maton EM125C up on the wall.

    On the floor is my SE Custom 24 in Whale Blue, through a Mooer Echolizer and Dunlop CryBaby wah pedal, into the 8080 Valvestate.

    Still plan to get some sort of drive or boost pedal, chorus, and a fuzz. Which will do for now.

    My three main guitar influences have been Eric Clapton and Lindsay Buckingham, neither of whom use a lot of effects, and John Frusciante, who uses heaps.

    Since I am heavily into mfx, I just had to try an FRFR...

    So, this is how my current rig and newly acquired Headrush FRFR-112 looks like!

    I only got to play it for 10 minutes, but I was amazed with the clarity.

    I look forward to play with it more! Not sure when...

    Inspired by Les' clean space, I've finally gotten around to tidying up. I set up a pedalboard that I think cost me more than the pedals (Evidence Audio cables ... man), and added a couple of solid pine 1x12 cabs by a local builder here (http://www.mergili.com). So tidy now!:
