Nice rigs. What drove you away from the rack setup? simplicity? How does the RK setup sound compared to the rack?

For one thing the rack was just to much. It was the amp I had dreamed of when I was younger. But, It was to large, I could not load it in a truck by myself, I only played it here at my home, If I would have ever gigged with it, I would have easily took half the stage at any bar, club, or ballroom. It did sound really cool though. I could dial in all the sounds I would ever want but, It was just to much. I did learn alot with it though... Like what I really want and need to acheive MY tone. For one I don't need a $4000 effects unit (yes one unit) for a good delay and reverb. With the rack it would take hours and a three ring binder owners manual to dial in a preset, with my head and pedals I turn a couple of knobs and play for hours. My abilty has progressed greatly with my new rig now because, I am playing the guitar insted of with the amp. As for the sound comparison, I feel that there is no comparasion the Road King and pedals DO sound better than the rack. It is more tone, good tone and not processed. I guess it is a lesson that all guitarist learn at some point... What they really need. A cool riff sounds just as cool dry going from guitar to amp to cab, than it does through a rack of processors. It took me years to learn that....

Understand completely. At one time I had a stereo Marshall rack with the 50/50 power amp and I think a 9001 preamp. I've always been a Rockman freak so my chorus and delays where Rockman half racks. Ran this through 2 Marshall 4x10s.

Lugged that sucker to a gig once then sold it the next day. Been using combos ever since, however that's about to change. Had back surgery in December and now have weight limits on what I can lift. Depending on what amp I go with it will be head and 2x12 or 4x10 cab.

is possible to have tons of tone with big racksystems!!! Check this thred http://forum.wolfgangregistry.com/viewtopic.php?t=176

YES it is big and YES it is heavy and YES it fills out half the stage BUT it sounds better than any system I've played anywere!!!

Wet/dry/wet is the way to go if you want lots of tone and super effects!!!
