    Just curious to see the average price of what stage players are paying nowadays. For quick reference, lets assume that a "stage rig" is comprised of an amp/cab or combo, rack and rack components (if applies), cabling and any other amp-related equipment. Basses, effects, etc. do not apply to this poll.

    Notice that the poll is private; your answer is anonymous.

    Guess I need to change my vote if y'all are throwing in tuners, wireless systems and pedals. Probably closer to $2500 if that's the case.

    I just based mine on the OP's criteria:

    "For quick reference, lets assume that a "stage rig" is comprised of an amp/cab or combo, rack and rack components (if applies), cabling and any other amp-related equipment. Basses, effects, etc. do not apply to this poll."

    My amp, wireless, and tuner are all in one rack - and I don't use any pedals/effects...
