I am considering selling all of my very expensive pedals that mimic high-end studio and buying the real-deal studio equipment to use live. Am I crazy?! First off, I am a spoiled musician that gets to play at church every week with the same set-up, reliable power, quality sound equipment, and high-end in-ears. If I am not playing at church, then I am at home recording. I have been recording more often and was considering purchasing the sweet sweet tube analog outboard gear that we all love. The thought occurred to me that if I kept an LA-2A compressor, 1073 mic pre, and a power conditioner in a rack, then I could easily roll into church on Sundays. This way I could sell my Noble DI, Cali-76 TX compressor, and a few other pedals to help fund the new gear. Of course, I wanted to get y'alls opinion first. Do any of you have similar setups? Other than the weight of lugging this gear around, what other downsides are there?
