    Trying to keep it simple and practicle:

    For rock and roll band:

    Nash T63 or Lucille (both with rotosound 10s) -> Creepyfingerz fuzz bud -> RMC3 -> Fatboost 3 -> Marshall 1974

    For R'n'B / soul band:

    Nash T63 -> Fatboost 3 - 1974

    Keeping me happy!

    oh and I use Jim dunlop 60's or 73's (the grey ones)

    Boss tuner

    Amp:

    '56 Relic, born in 2005, Taos Turquoise finish, Mark Kendrick designed pickups. DR Pure Blues "010". Bridge decked at the moment so no trem bar.

    Fulltone Gold Standard (10' to pedals, 10' to amp)
    Evidence Audio patches

    Pedal Power 2+
    • Fulltone Clyde Standard
    • Boss TU-2 or Intellitouch headstock, haven't decided yet (Pitchblack is in the shop)
    • Fulltone OCD or Fulldrive 2 depending on my mood
    • Either footswitch to Black Pearl set up for clean boost if I use my amp, or Fat Boost 3 if I'm using a backline
    • T-Rex Replica.
    My trusty Genz Benz Black Pearl or whatever amp they have for me so I don't have to haul it in.
    Shure SM57
    Shure IEM
    Some kind of cord from the mic to I guess the soundboard. Probably a split happens somewhere between the monitor board and the mains.

    All out to the unfortunate listeners' ears during church. Captive audience.
