I'm hitting the road! But it's all fly dates, and no crew... so no 'big iron.' Here are the parameters: (1.) It's rootsy music, but I'm a tweaker so I need to have great tremolos, tape echo, reverb etc. Think Black Keys meets Ry Cooder. (2.) I need to incorporate at least one electric and one acoustic, so the rig has to be set up to handle both. (3.) Running around these huge airports with guitars and heavy bags SUCKS. So I have to strike a balance between taking essentials on the plane and checking some of it as luggage. Thoughts: I could just go with a pedalboard, using the Liverpool pedal as an amp sim and my Radial PZ-Pre for acoustic. I also have an M13, which in my opinion has killer old-school stomp effects. OR I could try to make it a little more 'real' and get a Mesa TransAtlantic 15 head, and use rented cabinets or a speaker sim. OR I could just say forget the whole mess and try to get my hands on an Axe II. Thanks for your input, lads!!
