  • 2012 Gear Purchases - a year in review...

    So the 2012 New Year's gear resolutions thread got me thinking.... How'd everyone do? What'd you buy? What'd you sell? What'd you keep?



    For me...



    What I started with:



    Guitars - Benford Tele, Benford Custom Dual Cutaway, Reverend Flatroc, Larrivee OM-03re



    Pedals - pretty much this, but was probably slightly different...





    Amps - Gabriel Voxer V18, Marshall Class 5



    Cab - Emperor 2x12





    .....Aaaaaaaand fast forward to the end of the year.......





    Guitars - G&L ASAT Special, Gibson Les Paul Standard, Larrivee OM-03re



    Pedals - this...





    Amp - Gabriel Voxer V18



    Cabs - Emperor 2x12, Stagecraft 1x12





    So yeah... Guitars are COMPLETELY different, but I'm much happier with 2 amazing electrics as opposed to 1 great electric and 2 decent ones. Pedalboard got downsized significantly and I'm MUCH happier because of it. I'm gonna bookmark this thread, and I'd be willing to bet that my board will look only SLIGHTLY different at this point next year (might swap the SP Comp for something else... But that's all I'd prolly change. I'm finally satisfied with everything and the controllers really simplify my live playing. The Gabriel has been with me for over 2 years now, and won't be going anywhere. I'd like to add a 2nd amp in '13, but only to compliment the Gabriel. Cabs are here to stay as well.

              How are you liking that Xotic SP? What other comps have you used and what would you compare it too?

                traded Fuzz factory for CWM and bought an M5 and an expression pedal. Added 10-band EQ to board. slow year for gear, bu the M5 sated a lot of potential pedal urges.

                  I bought way too much stuff to list here in 2012...especially compared to what I sold which wasn't very much. It was a big year for guitars, pedals, amps and studio stuff. This year won't be as spendy since I had to pay for my dog's back surgery recently but I'm planning on picking up either the AxeFx2 to use as an effects processor or the much speculated and anticipated Fractal Audio M-9 killer. I'm giving them until April to deliver the goods and I'm pulling the trigger on whatever's available at the time.



                  For guitars I'll probably buy at least one more NAFTA-Caster Cabronita Tele, a pair of Johnny Marr Jaguars and another pair of Edwards 335's and I'll be done buying any more guitars.



                  I'm also considering a pair of Fender Princeton Reissues and a pair of Vox AC-15 handwired combos and maybe another pair of Mesa TA-30 heads and then I'm done buying anymore guitar amps unless I can get a good deal on a Hiwatt head and cab and a Marshall Silver Jubilee head. I might also pick up a couple of Mesa Lone Star 2x12 cabinets and a Mesa 4x10 Lone Star cab. That being said, none or only a couple of these amp purchases may happen if I start focusing more on studio hardware this year.



                  For pedals, there's not a lot on my list for 2013...maybe an Empress Comp, and Xotic SP comp and a few duplicates of the pedals that I use a lot so I can build other boards or have as backups.



                  If the paying bass gigs continue to come my way I may pick up an Ampeg SVT head and maybe another bass or two and maybe a Mesa Bi-Amped bass rig...but only if the paying gigs keep coming. Otherwise I'll probably put it off until 2014 and I may just get the SVT and skip the other stuff.



                  Of course the **************** cold hit the fan somehow and none of this could happen but if all goes well, this is what I'm looking at. After that, with the exception of studio gear, I'm pretty much done buying any more guitar and bass gear. At that point I might buy a nicer drum set, but the one I have is cutting it (and I'm not that great of a drummer...mostly the drummers in the bands I'm in use it at rehearsals) so it's not high on my priority list.

                      To the OP, nice progression man. I would like to emulate how your incorporation of independent controllers. Sometimes I get concerned with preserving the toanz while playing my big board not to mention tap dancing. Your solution looks like a great cure.



                      Also, why did you have to introduce me to the Naga Viper?! Haha.
