Digitech RP-12 and RP-1, and I use the Vht Valvulator to add analog warmth to those ones and zeros. I got an old Univox Univibe fron the 60's that I love and rarely use. Go to my band mix profile to see my sonic toys.

Guitar to amp

Shure Wireless
DOD Compressor (need a better one bad)
Dan Electro Rocky Road
Ibanez SD 9 Sonic Distortion
Marshall Bluesbreaker Overdrive
Volume Pedal
A/B switch

A to a Fender Super Reverb, el rauncho deluxe, B to a Peavey MX with a 1967 Kustom 2x12 cabinet, clean as it gets, Arion analog delay in the Peavey's effects loop, thinking about moving it to the pedal board.

Fender Squier Strat, straight single coils unmodified
Peavey Patriot (2 single coils unmodified)
Cort CL 1500 (2 humbuckers unmodified)
Washburn BT 2 standard tuning or drop D (2 humbuckers unmodified)
1966 Harmony Bobkat (some sites say Silhouette) 1 single coil
Telecaster copy tuned to open D
Telecaster copy tuned to open G
Electromuse lap steel in open G
Takamine acoustic electric standard or drop D

Various brass and bottles for slide.

The strat and Cort get played the most, the others either when one of those drops out of tune or I need alternate tunings.

Amp: Marshall TSL 100 all tube three channel.

FX is where I made the mistake.
Got the TC Electronics G Major.
Great efx in the box but...it's not designed for instrument level input so, it goes in the loop between the pre amp out and power amp in.

That's great...well, not so much.
Time based efx sound like dog crap if they are applied to the already amplified signal.
Delays are good...but flanges, chrous, and phase shift sound like crap.

Can't plug into the G Major though or you'll get nothing but hiss and crackle.

They fixed that with a much more expensive box called G System.
You plug into the box then to the amp.

There are four break outs where you can send a feed from a patch somewhere else and bring it back again. (expression pedals, vintage stomp boxes, etc...)

But....for sure the compressor and/or EQ have no place AFTER the pre amp.

This thing is built like a tank. About quarter inch thick aluminum box.
Switches which are bright green if they're not selected and bright red when they are. You can find them on a dark stage for sure. And you can hit the switches with a hammer and they'll keep on workin.
Not so for the G major which used, what had to have been second thought parts....I've got $350 in repairs just to the encoder wheels on the G Major...

Biggest mistake I ever made. Unfortunately, the G System (used by the guy who plays for Flower Kings among others) is about $1,500 US.

I just use 4 channels in my amp:

1) beautiful crisp clean sound with just a tinge of chorus

2) overdrive with slight echo and when needed, very smooth flange

3) powerul bass and mid with insane overdrive without reverb. (If you haven't guessed yet, I love metal)

4) exact same as 3 with reverb basically used for solos.

I just use a simple pedal to switch channels and use the wah/volume pedal mainly for volume control.

I hate using outside pedals these days... pain in the ass to set up and take apart every stinkin' gig. I love the fact that most amps nowadays come with effects built in cause I only need the crazy ones for a song or 2. I mainly just use clean and overdrive!

I don't run my tone THROUGH any effects. They'll just destroy your tone, especially in bypass mode.

I run my preamp into one channel of a rack-mounted mixer. From there I split it to a bunch of ART Multiverb SEs and a couple of Alesis Midiverb 4s (one for crunch and another for clean, since they seem to like different settings). All the effects' outs come back in through the mixer, so that they're added to the sound but the main guitar sound never goes through any effects at all.

It's all controlled by midi with expression pedals, so I can mix in effects with my feet. Quite handy, and it doesn't destroy my tone.
