What gear did you use on your NYE gig?

I used my home-made Supro 1688Tn, Les Paul Classic, Thorn R/S and my pedal board loaded with an EB vol pedal, a Deluxe Memory Man, Timmy, Cry Baby and Okko Diablo (a few other pedals don't get much use).

Gig went well...but man...tight fit...we had a small horn section for two sets and my amp was wedged in a corner next to an ancient pot-belly stove!!

It was a day or so before, but close enough (for me, ha ha). I used a Carr Imperial (discontinued 60 watt, "double Rambler" model) that I've been using for many many years with a succession of boosts/drives in front of it (EP Booster, Klon KTR, Fulldrive II Mosfet), a Lovepedal Karl Fuzz, a way huge Aqua puss for slapback and a Fulltone clyde wah. Only guitar I used was a Koll Superglide Almighty with Bigsby and TV Jones T-Armonds.

I could play this combo for the rest of my life and be happy. We started out on a large outdoor stage for 2 hours, and then played the remainder of the night in a dive bar. It was a fantastic night.


I brought my '92 Marshall 6101 combo amp, Korg DL8000R in a 4 space rack, Zoom G9.2tt effects floor processor, 1990 Hamer Chapparal Elite 90 guitar, 1994 Hamer Diablo II guitar, and a Reverend Eastsider T with EMG T pickups/ SPC module. The Eastsider T is a new guitar in my collection and I played it out for 2 sets in my Top 40 cover band gig. The guitar plays well, sounds good with its new pickups, and doesn't have hum/buzz with the lights onstage. I had a fun gig last night.

Our bass player had an earlier gig that overlapped with our later one, so I borrowed his Fender Dimension bass and his amp for our first set to fill in. Much as I love playing guitar, that first set was probably the most fun I've had on stage in a long time. Plus, it took all of 45 seconds to set up. :D I really need to get more bass gigs.

Second and third sets: Gibson Les Paul Standard with a Fralin P92 in the bridge and a Suhr Thornbucker in the neck and my Charvel-a-like with a Floyd for guitars. Amp: my brand-spanking new Fargen DBC-50, which rocked like a champ. Pedals: MXR Reverb in the loop, and pedalboard with an RMC10 wah, Phase 90, Mooer ElecLady, Xotic SP comp, and Timmy in front. Covers a ton of ground for our band, which covers lots of 80s-2010s tunes.

It's fun to hear what everyone was rockin' at the show....so many ways to get it done!

I played my '52 Hot Rod Tele into a Mini Z.....the board is Fulltone Fat Boost>Nocturne Nail Head tremolo>AquaPuss II>Boing reverb>Astro Tone fuzz. Big sounds that rocked hard. The guitar changes but the board and amp pretty much stay the same. :)
