View Full Version : Practice rigs
09-28-2011, 01:46 PM
Hey, I play out 3-4 times a week and hate hauling my rig out of my car on off days to practice so I want to put together a cool portable practice rig.
I've looked at the tascam trainer's and korg pandora's but am wondering what you all are using and would recommend. Pictures of custom rigs would be cool!

For real I feel you. Im actually considereing gettin a Pod HD300 JUST for practice purposes. Im sur eI could dial in 2-3 sounds that come "close" to what my rig sounds like ...

get a roland micro cube. Allot of fun and very handy for practice and testing pickups. Sounds very nice too.

I have a microcube actually., however im looking for something with a metronome and mp3/cd playback support preferably with slowdown. I like the tascam trainers but the amp models in it suck in my opinion. I will mostly be using the rig with ear buds in

I use a Fender Mustang III for practice at home and I will take it to a rehearsal now and then if I need to. It's a great little amp.
Depends on what you need / use. Myself, I have about 12 pedals on my main board. But that includes a few overdrives and delays.
So if I were putting together a practice rig, it would probably just be tuner>OD>delay. The reverb, tremolo, volume pedal for swells, etc., aren't needed for practice.

I would probably look into something Line 6 for portability/simplicity. Maybe one of their mfx.
