    Everyone has that odd, weird piece of gear that they love, mine is a Randall RB212W cab. I cant find any info on it, have no idea what power rating it has, its an odd 2x12 folded horn design and it weighs as much as my car but sweet baby jesus does it have lowend and volume to spare!

    Whats yours?
  2. DIY pedalboard, 2 tiers of ply on two ply runners, 1 flat and 1 angled, solid as a rock and weighs almost nothing.

    I'm sort of partial to the thing I made to keep my top cab stable on the bottom one..

    I really love my weird 70's Peavey 212G cabinet, loaded with EV Force 12's. Crazy clear and great musicality!


    I am more than likely going to buy a larger set up one of these days but my current amp set up is perfect for the small sessions I'm doing now!

    And then there's this:

    It's a double pick.
    Two picks in one-slightly offset.
    They hit the string close together.
    On guitar this can give you a bit of a 12 string sound (Not fully-as you don't get the octave)
    when you give it some dirt it cranks it up a notch.
    So I love it for distorted power chords and and for clean open chord strumming.

    A nightlight plugged into on open outlet on the back of my Furman PL-Pro, providing beautiful illumination to the entire backside of my rack system.

    This old Elpico tube amp, only 5watts out of a 6sl7 and a 6v6 with tube rectifier, no flash EQ only a tone control.
    The sound it gets re amping bass is very subtle saggy and compressed way before very progressive onset of distortion and when you give it large it's a filthy little beast.:)

    My weirdest piece of gear is probably a smokey amp that runs on a 9V battery.

    Pretty farty with a bass. I run it with different speakers to help with the sound.


    Along the same line, this is an Eico 147A signal tracer. It has a small speaker and an instrument can be connected to it. Mic the speaker for a unique sound. It has a magic eye.

    Hah, nice tape echo. Does the tape ever get tangled up?
