  • Time for Another 'Post Your Rack' Thread...

    I'm looking for new rack ideas, particularly in the 6-10 space or "girlie" sizes. Post away...

  • #2
    Girlie?! I'm insulted. My rack is powerful but compact, :P effective simplicity defined.

    Furman AR-1217 voltage regulator
    Mesa/Boogie Triaxis 2.0 phat modded
    Eventide GTR4000 w/ 172 sec. internal sampler
    Mesa/Boogie Strategy 500 Stereo (can NOT be girlie in any way)

    So, yeah, that's what I use. Along with that I have a B.C. Rich Warlock standard as my main guitar, occasionally use an old DOD Corrosion pedal when I want more abrasive solid state distortion and Monster 500 rock & jazz cables throughout.

    The speaker cabinet is a gutted Crate GS412S with the original drivers replaced with Celestion G12H-80 speakers, the wiring replaced with Monster "New" raw speaker cable and the casters replaced with industrial 4" casters. That runs in stereo, of course.

      Here you go:

      (6 Space Rack)
      Samson SR-2 Wireless (Yeah I know its a cheap model)
      ADA MP-1 Stock
      ADA MP-1 Modded
      ADA MQ-1 Programmable EQ
      Rocktron Intellifex

      (Home made 4 space case)
      Peavey Classic 60/60

      Going to add a BBE maximizer and a switching device so i can switch between the 2 preamps when I need to. Also maybe a small tuner and just rack it on a face plate.

      Will get pictures later on hopfully.


      enjoy,

        VHT GP3 -> G-major -> Mesa 50/50

        I might eventually be adding a power conditioner.. I'll also be picking up a POD XT PRO in a couple of weeks that I might swap in and out of my rack but it's more for bringing to friends places and when I go back home for 3 months every year.

        There's also a tiny pedalboard with that

        Teese Wizard wah -> Axess GRX4 (with Roccaforte Bastard pedal in the loop)

        Everything controlled my an Axess MFC5

                That's what I'm talking about... do you have any problems with it not being shockmounted?

                  El Grinder, as you know I have a strategy 500 too. How effective is your rack setup for your shows?

                    Shows? Unfortunately my life sucks at the moment and I've never actually been in a band that stayed together long enough to play shows. Pretty pathetic, huh?

                    I just do this for myself. The Strategy has no problems handling the loudest of drummers with that cabinet though.

                      I'm selling the Alesis 3630 and the 2 switchers. (moving down to a smaller top rack.)

                      Marshall JMP-1 > TC G-Major > Mesa Strategy 500 > Mesa 4x12

                      The rack does an amazing job live. I get so many compliments on my guitar sound.

                        Dude you are so much better off doing a few smaller racks than a giant rack... anything over 8 spaces. Especially if its not a small and light rack like SKB. I know SKB racks totally suck and do not offer any real protection... thats why I use them... well not really. Its all about portability to me. I had a 16 space, a 10 Space and an 8 space at one point or another and it was a total pain in the ass to move and set up. I like the SKB racks because they are smooth and fit in a car eazy and the handles are in a great location and don't **************** up your wrists like the other racks with those suck ass butterfly handles. The likelyhood of dropping an SKB rack is so slim as opposed to losing control of a weighty rack on some tricky stairs. I have also designed a strapping system that locks, quite neatly, my 4 space and 6 space down on top of my Marshall 412.

                        There are many ways to effectivly rack so weigh all your options before you start the rack journey... it will save you time and money.

                          Never had a problem yet. Never dropped it onto the ground, or out of the back of the truck, or anything else stupid either though. I typically carry my own gear, and it's got to fit in the back of my MX-6 when I don't feel like driving the van... so shockmount is out of the question for me currently.

                          The worst this stuff has seen: I was wheeling my two 2x10 cabinets and both racks on a handtruck through a bumpy parking lot (dirt/rocks, no pavement). Hit a dip and the whole stack fell right over. Took quite a hit, right on the corner of the rack case (the racks were on top of the cabs). Everything worked great when I (hesitantly) powered it all up; my 9V adapter for my Sennheiser fell out of the Furman though.

                          I don't think I'd fly them in these cases, even though they're ATA-300 approved.

                          Also, that 6U rack is heavy as ****************, with the Yammie poweramp weighing around 39 pounds on its own I believe. I bought the 4U to put the poweramp and drawer in, but the drawer weighs almost as much as the Yamaha... it was like moving a solid steel block with only one handle!
                          How about a mother****************ing crocodile pit instead of those titty ****************s !
