I'm following Kim's lead here, using a link to this post in my signature instead of having all that garbage at the bottom of each and every post

ADA Gear
Preamps: MP-1 Classic, MP-2
Power Amps: Microtube MT-200, MicroTube 100
Pedals: MXC control switch with Quad switch and CC pedal

Gig Rig (wait 10 minutes, it'll change)
Hughes & Kettner Grandmeister 40 Deluxe head into two Yamaha 1x12 cabs. I use a Boss MS-3 for effects and as a midi footswitch for the amp.

When I have enough room onstage, I bring the H&K stack and my H&K Switchblade 50 combo and run them on either side of the stage in stereo  :metal:

Backup rigs: Hughes & Kettner Switchblade 50 combo, and a Peavey Classic 20 Mini Head with matching tweed oversized 1x12 cab (this amp rocks) - each uses the Boss MS-3 for effects and switching

Great setup dante! I remember the microtube being a pretty sweet little preamp, but I don't remember if you can run to 412's off it?

Sorry man, I guess I didn't see your message there ....Hell yeah, the Microtube can power 4x12s! Shoot, my Peavey sounds great through one too  :lol:

The Microtube is a power amp, not a preamp, btw

Pedalboard & Signal chain: It looks complicated, and I admit I had some extra time when I did this, but it's pretty straight forward. See the attached diagram below, here's an explanation;

The Boss MS-3 runs/controls everything. All FX (except a couple pedals) are in there, and all external stuff runs through it somehow...It has 3 loops

Loop 1: Outboard effects (Wah pedal, Octaver & Mojomojo OD)
Loop 2: Amp (via 4 Cable Method)
Loop 3: not used

Notice I have the stomp boxes before the amp, and I have another loop available if I want anything after the amp, but before my stereo delay pedal....

When the signal leaves the MS-3, each output runs into the Echolution 3 L/R. That signal runs out to the amps for each side;
Side A: to the FX RETURN of the main preamp I'm using
Side B: Into the FX RETURN of the amp I'm using as a slave (bypasses the preamp, just uses the power amp this way)

ADDED: pic of the pedalboard put together

That's pretty cool how you did that layout!

It looks like you photographed your gear and cut and pasted it to a clipboard, then connected all your lines somehow. Nice work!
I only have two brain cells left, ...and I'm saving them for the weekend!

@Harley: I used two photos; one of the Flying Vee I gave my nephew for xmas and one of my two ADA rigs, the rest of the photos are from the web, which was nice

I kinda needed to lay this out for my own brain to comprehend where I was going to add the delay pedal in the chain and still achieve the 4cable method (probably ought to do a thread about the 4CM). I need to add a pic of the back of the ADA rigs.....someday

Dante,

I could tell a couple were photos of your rig(s). I wasn't too sure about the others though.

Still, really nice work man :thumb-up:

Thanks man, I updated my diagram with actual pix of my MP-2 rig. Also added a 4CM post with a diagram for reference.
