    What did that cost you, Zach? And, who do you play with?

    It wasn't FREE, pardon the pun. It actually costed me less than it might cost someone else, seeking to build something similar today-starting from scratch. I already owned some of the components for several years, before updating my rig to the current version.

    I got several of the components for free, and didn't pay retail for anything but the Custom stuff I had Bob build me.

    Suffice it to say my accountant has contemplated Hari Kiri.

    I play with a group called the Piranha Brothers, though the big rig is usually used for studio session work, for various clients.

    Thanks, and I'm glad some of you found the video useful. The TC sounds Killer. The Tri-Stereo Chorus in the Eventide sounds KILLER too, and when the two are used in tandem, it produces a really neat effect. I LOVE the 1210. :BEER

    Way too complicated for me.

    You should have told us you were just a bedroom guitarist for a laugh to see what reaction you got!

    hehehehe... :D I do have fun playing with the rig at home too :BEER

    It's really not complicated to use. The design and setup was the pain in the butt part. Using it is VERY simple... No more complicated than any other setup. It's easier in a lot of ways, as the snake for the foot controller is labeled as is the Rack Interface. It takes a couple of minutes to plug in everything and then one button flick powers up everything. Then just selecting the pre-programmed presets.

    The programming of the individual processors isn't that out of the ordinary. The Matrix of the Lexicon and the Eventide took a while to get used to but now, it's not an issue.

    He definitely knows his stuff. There is no noise reduction being used in the rig at all and it is very very quiet.

    Killer rig, and thanks for sharing the video.

    I'm curious ... Did you and/or Bob consider a Switchblade GL when planning the rig?

    That's a great rig. Bob built my rack in the early 90's & it has worked perfectly, noise/problem free to this day.
    Thanks for posting the pics & video.
