A thread in the amps section got me thinking. I don't tour the country playing music, nor have I ever, so I may be way off on this, but... If I were going to tour I don't think I'd bring an amp with me. Unless it was a big multimillion dollar tour of my dreams (see Pete Thorn threads for clarification) I would put together a pedalboard that would be extensive enough to work in any situation. Everything would be covered: pedals that would be good with high-powered clean amps, small low-powered amps, dark amps, bright amps, even no amp and straight into the PA if needed. I figure that just about any backline is going to provide one of the following: Fender Hot Rod Series something, Fender Twin Reverb, or Marshall JCM somethingorother. Even if one of these wasn't provided I'd have something to run straight into the PA (POD-like device). Does anybody out there do this? It just seems like traveling with an amp would become a hassle pretty quickly. If I had a pedalboard and 2 guitars I think I'd be set. Not saying this would be the "best sounding" rig, but it would work in a live environment and would be a heck of a lot easier to transport. What do you guys think?
