I was using my Warmoth WGD with Joe Barden PUPs --> T-Rex Dr. Swamp --> Mutron (Haz-labs) --> Lexicon MPX G2 (mostly for delay) --> Mesa Mark IV (at least it sounds like the Mesa, I brought my Twin to that gig also but I think I set it up for a guest player to use). Pretty much the same set up I use everywhere (though the studio stuff I use an amp simulator in Logic not an actual amp). The volume may have something to do with the tone though I usually set the amp at 25w and crank it about to the same place as I did here but had it at full power (100w). It's also only a 1x12 combo with stock Boogie speakers - I want to get my old Mark III to the shop and get it up and running again I have a 2x12 Mesa cab and a 4x10 Marshall that it sounds cool through - but more crap to haul around in the truck.
I hate to admit, but I get pretty lazy about my tone a lot of times I just plug the guitar in and play and don't even look at where the knobs are set unless something sounds strange.
Can't wait for our gigs down there this year - only 3 weeks away! Got old members coming in from PA, CA, HI, FL, & NC to join in the fun. Also a couple of extra percussion players. Plus, the usual stragglers that come in off the beach. I'm gonna try to bring my video cameras down this year.
