    Thought I'd share my current club amp/pedal setup. This is when I bring one cab and switch heads via an Axess Headswitcher.

    Zendrive is for bridge leads on humbucker guitars and the Blues Devil is for Strat leads. The Wizard is my humbucking amp and the OD100 Classic is my strat amp. There is a Hot Plate that I use in parallel to tame the Wizard a bit.

    This is at the Crystal Bay Casino, killer live venue. Meyer sound system, all the sh*t!

    The Hilton has yet to put the tix on sale, but I'll be there. Come on up!!!

    They remind me of a much better Silver Jubilee. The first channel is the Vintage Classic, very big and open, not much gain. Perfect for those Jimmy Herring comps. The lead channel is an animal, lots of throaty gain. It can get a bit bright for me. The humbucker neck leads are just killer and I roll my tone knob off a bit for the bridge pickup. I kick in the Zendrive, not so much for more gain, but to "soften" the bridge leads ala R. Ford/Bonamassa.

    In a nutshell, fat, aggressive, tons of complex tone. A great live amp, just HUGE sounding.

    Which pedal controls the head switcher? The Fender single switch?

    Man, that looks like WAY too much work, to me. LOL!

    Gimme a guitar, a cord, a tuner and a Tweed Deluxe or a Super Reverb, and I'm as happy as a pig in ****!

    The head switcher is actually by my guitar stand. When I switch guitars, I switch the heads. The Fender FS is just for switching the Wizard's channels.

    Dave, it is a lot of gear, but I actually like all the tones I get. I don't mind.

    I understand the OD100 has much more gain than the Wizard, but the basic Wizard voicing is more aggressive. Is that right?

    BTW what cab is that? Also is that a Voltage regulator on the floor by the cab? Nice rig anyway!

    The OD Classic has less gain and is less agressive. It seems to have more low mids and works well with singles and humbuckers. I have alternated heads/guitars and they both work well. I just like EQing the amps specifically for each pickup type.

    That's a Furman Pro, just cleans up the power, I may get the AR1215 though.

    That is a Divided By 13 cab. It has Celestion Heritage G12H30s on the bottom and G12Ms on the top. Sweet cab.

    I love the Clearsonic, lets me play up to the amp's sweet spot and get the power without killing the soundmen/audience. I rarely get told to turn down. I can hear great since the sound slightly bounces up to me and it doesn't kill my ears.

    Brewbeck uses one too, right?

    Oops, I didn't notice the OD was a Classic. Have you tried the regular or SE OD100 and how does that compare to the Wizard, as far as gain, aggression, etc?

    No, I really like slightly lower gain amps. The Wizard has gain to spare, but it really kicks and has punch and doesn't compress out.
