A friend just turned me on to this site, I've posted over on Gearheads for a while. Great info here.

I play lead in a band in Boston called Playin' Dead. My rig is:

Lefty Resurrection Tiger guitar (DiMarzio Super II pickups, CAE original buffer amp, onboard effects loop) ->

Mid 70s Twin Reverb head with blackface mods ->

Hard Truckers 2X12 cabinet with JBL E-120s

Effects: Vox Clyde Wah, Holy Grail reverb

Effects loop chain: Q-Tron -> Boss OD2-r overdrive ->
MXR Phase 100 -> Boss Octave -> Boss DD6 delay -> Boss EQ (set flat with slight boost to even up the effects loop signal with the non-looped signal).

Samples can be heard at http://www.playingdead.net ...

Peace,
Vic

Not to bust your balls Vic but, new to Rukind? You've been on the web for quite a while and this site has slipped under your nose??

Anyway, nice rig! I need to catch you guys sometime.

hey.. you're a great guitarist. I've watched your videos, even playing along..lol you've got a great feel for the music. joe

Great Rig...

I play something similar. I'm 90% through my own custom Cripes style bolt guitar.. I was using the Qtron and recently got an EMMA Discumbobulator and am in love.

I'll have to venture off the island and catch you guys. from the vids. and clips it looks like a great show and a good crowd.
