    If you want to see a lot of rack setups of forum types and also pro rigs, visit www.hugeracksinc.com. ALong with TGP, it is a terrific site with a ton of info on gear. Enjoy!

    Pedalshelf has: Barber Tonpress and LTD, Xotic RC and BB, Fultone Mini Deja and Octafuzz powered by PP2
    The SPX, RSP and G-force are run thru the DMC mixer so all in parallel. SPX is used for symphonic (chorusing) and micro pitch shift, RSP phaser, chorusing, pitch shift and finally the G-Force for delay/reverb/weirdness.

    No photos, but I confess to being a rack user:

    Furman power supply
    Dunlop Rack Wah DCR-1SR
    Rocktron Hush Super C
    Mesa Boogie Triaxis preamp (with custom array of NOS tubes)
    Rocktron Replifex
    Rocktron Intellifex
    Line 6 Echol Pro
    BBE Sonic Maximizer
    Mesa Boogie 20/20 power amp (4xEL84, again with custom NOS tube set)
    Rocktron All Access midi controller
    Mesa Boogie shock-mount rack


    And a smaller rack:
    Lexicon Signature 284 amp (again, custom NOS tubes set)
    Boss DD-20 delay in the loop

    Speakers are two Mesa Boogie widebody 1x12, each with WeberVST AlNiCo speakers (Silver Bell and Blue Dog)

    I used to run pedals (fuzzface, Digitech PDS 8000, Tube Screamer, MXR Flanger, etc.) in my larger rack, and switch them in and out with a Rocktron Patch Mate. But these days, what with the NOS tube upgrades I've done in the Triaxis, I've put the pedals and the Patch Mate on the shelf (in the studio, not in the rack).

    In the back, there's a GCX and a power conditioner. Box hanging under the Echo is an Axess CFX 4 for switching control functions. Tuner and wah sit on the floor with the Ground Control Pro.

    Wax-

    What rack are you using? how deep?

    Is that an SKB pedal shelf?

    Regular 6 space SKB, Yes, SKB shelf with the Velcro. If I were to do it over again, I'd probably look for a different shelf. It works, but something less bulky might be better. Pretty sure depth is 16" or so. It's pretty tight in there, but I didn't want 8-10 spaces. I have shallow racks that I use for PA gear, but there's no way the pedals would fit. I thought about building a box for it all. Could be a cool future project. I like that it's all in one box, and I have it set up to work with any one of 4 different amps of varying wattage with a minimum of cables to plug in.

    Hey DT,
    I found somebody that is selling an Electrix Repeater. Are you aware if there is any service available for these units if something goes awry with it?
    Thanks,
    M.E.

    I don't think the grooveking is playing fair.

    I'll bite though, Grooveking,which one is your main rig, which one is your backup, which one is the backup's backup, which one is the jam rig, which one is the backup jam rig,which one is the practice rig.....More importantly.....which one can I have?:crazyguy

    Mine's not anywhere near Grooveking's. It's small and versatile though so I like it. Anyways, it's an 8-spc rack with Furman, Egnater M4 preamp, Mesa 20/20, TC Electronic G-system rack interface, Pedal shelf with Matchless Dirt Box, Menatone Red Snapper, ZVex SHO, TS9 w/Analogman Silver Mod. The TC unit is great. It powers up all the pedals and switches the channels of the M4 as well as having 4 loops for the pedals and one insert for the preamp. Nice little small rack.
