Heres a request for help on what I should get next... I guess...
I play in this band http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qvB9vHC7NE
...recently the bands been moving towards the direction of... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eN7h5fRBPm4
Here are my past guitar rigs... still have the gear too...
... and a halfstack v30 cabinet!
1st guitar setup (band before the one now)
> Ibanez Prestige RG > Marshall TSL-100 (straight)
2nd guitar setup
> Ibanez Prestige RG > Sansamp GT-2 > Marshall > FX Loop w/ Boss EQ7
Ive recently realised that the GT-2 has a damn swish sound, but as its an amp AND cab/mic sim, a lot of the punch is lost in the mix with my band...
The past week Ive got a new amp (Bugera 6262) with an overdrive pedal (Danelectro FAB - both REAAALLY cheap!!)
Bugera 6262 is pretty much a carbon copy of the Peavey 5150.2 / 6565+ Bugera 6262 vs. Peavey 5150 II - Metal shootout - YouTube
... Checking online Ive found that to get the overdriven amp under control, a noise gate pedal would be needed.. but Id like to see if anyone on this board can give some info or advise me on this...
Ive found that the MXR Noise Gate and the ISP Decimator are supposed to be neat-oh! ... or should I just screw it and get a Behringer pedal? Should be fun
So, current setup (will try it in the studio this Sunday / Tuesday)
Ibanez RG > Overdrive > Bugera 6262 > FX Loop Boss EQ7 (is this even needed!?)
Any feedback would be grand,
