Hi all, I just wanted to share my new "fly rig". I do occasionally have to fly to mainland Europe for some gigs and as some airlines are not that sympathetic to musicians (Ryanair are the absolute crappiest worst, whereas British Air are among the very best in this regard) I needed something small, which could possibly even fit in my hand luggage, and which could yield all the required sounds also bearing in mind that you're never 100% guaranteed what amp will be provided, and this one does that in spades! Joe at GigRig advised that I placed the Rat first in line; I tried placing it after the buffer but the difference is quite remarkable, it went from sounding ok-ish but very mediocre (after the buffer) to sounding absolutely exceptional when placed at the beginning of the chain! Night & day. So there you go, Pro Co Rat - TC Bonafide - Roger Mayer modded 60's Vox Wah - 80's Ibanez CS9 - TC Electronic Alter Ego; that's all I really need, I can go "from Joe Pass to Joe Perry" at a whim, it's so dynamic it allows me to control 90% of the sounds with the controls on the guitar & the way I play, and it sounds so good I even started using this rig in place of the other (ever so slightly bigger) pedalboard. Simplicity rules!
