Your Ideal 90's Era Rig

I played similar stuff to the OP (old thread; he still alive?) and got it all done with a Carvin Ultra V (Seymour duncan JB in the bridge) into a Crate Stealth, 4x12 with G12S-50s and a Digitech RP6.

I had, at the time, a Boss DS1 and Arion SCO-1 chorus but never used either.

All that said, my tone is much better now than it was back then.

Not sure about ideal 90s set ups but typical 90s set ups starting with the grunge era was pawn shop gear. Peavey VTM amps and vintage but no name brand guitars and the return of the stomp boxes.

Then the PV 5150 and and Classic 50 amps became frequently used.

Post SRV saw a huge uptick in tweed and black face fender sales.

Mesa Boogie rounded out the decade with the Nu Metal bands.

I’m not a tremolo user but the Schaller sounds really nice. The word lush comes to mind.
If you dig the Schaller trem, check out the Parabola by Caroline Guitar Company. It's so damn good. I sold the rest of my Trems.

I'm alive but I don't frequent TGP as much anymore. Not my demographic much anymore, apparently.

Lol....I feel ya, bruh. Actually, it's not so bad if you stay outta the pub.
Well, I was. Then some people in power that frequent said pubs came in and make the threads that I hung out in not so much fun. It is what it is. Makes me miss the GuitarGeek forums.

Anyone who names their pedal after a Tool song is alright in my book. I’ve been wanting to try the Hawaiian Pizza.

You got it just right on the guitars and pedals, but I remember almost everybody playing Marshalls back then. Just my opinion.

JCM800 half stacks were all over the place back then, even on some of the stuff you mentioned.
Yep. Even at the teen center where I saw local shows. Everyone played JCM 800’s, the occasional Sunn amp too.
