atta boy!Being a hippie, or hipster I guess you can call it. I subscribe to a philosophy of minimalism. Making the most of a small amount of whatever, this includes guitar gear. This means more time playing and less time stringing and tweaking guitars, worrying about cables, and reducing probability of error by keeping things simple.
My one and only amp has only 1 input, 1 speaker, is fairly light, doesn't have too many tubes (Vox AC15CC), and I use it for practice AND gigging. More often than not, larger venues mic'd my amp, making a high wattage amp unnecessary. (It's also surprisingly LOUD) All pedals fit in an easy to carry pedalboard, can be setup in 5 minutes, and it can all fit in my VW Golf.
Anyway, this ALL my guitar gear. Seems to cover all the sonic possibilities I require. A nice mellow '12 Fender American Standard Stratocaster for single-coiled goodness, a lovely '78 Fender Starcaster with really awesome humbuckers, and a Martin Acoustic-Electric. Enjoy!
less can def be more, but is not necessarily more better.....Indeed less is more.
