Instead of a normal NGD thread. I thought I would shake it up a tiny bit. You see this isn't just a NGD for me. This was a drastic leap in quality and sound and I honestly didn't think it would happen. It really is my dream rig. So it got me curious as to whether or not anyone else finally got their dream rig after a long wait. So please share your story on your dream rig. The only rule is you have to have acquired your setup or it has to be on your way. These are for the success stories. Pics are very much encouraged. So with amps and cabs I have mostly stayed true to tubes. I think the furthest I went off the rails was a few modeling amps when they first came out and recently I was using a spidervalve MKII. But in between I had several awesome amps including but not limited to, Engl Invader, Mesa Mark V, Dual Rect, Krank rev, Krankenstein, Carvin V3, V3m,legacy 2, X100b, Marshall DSL, TSL (orginal 2001 year versions) 6505+,6534, 5153 (50 & 100), Genz Benz diablo and the list goes on and on. I LOVED every single amp. For about a month or two. I just get bored. And with my limited income I cant afford to keep a large collection of high end amps. I ended up compromising (a lot) and got a spidervalve MKII. But it just doesn't have the nuance, feedback and dynamics of a really good Tube amp. It had monster volume and punch seeing it had a full tube power section. But I got the impression the tubes in the preamp section have minimal effect except to complete the circuit. So after doing a bunch of side by side videos between the AX8 and kemper I blind bought the profiler. I have had it a little over 1 month and it really and I have not stopped smiling since. I can crank it up through my headphones at night. Crank it through the recto cab during the day and I have a dedicated laptop for rig manager. It really is Christmas every day. I can find a sound for any mood I am in at that moment and the sound I get blows the doors off the spidervalve. The noise gate alone was worth the two thousand I spent on it. I just never thought I would own a good amp again. I sold my Mark V a couple years ago for an invader. I ended up keeping and regretting the invader purchase. What really pisses me off is I had both amps side by side and could have just sold the engl but no, I convinced myself that it was the amp I needed I just needed to spend more time with it. I hated the engl. It just had no character. So I sold it and got the SVMKII. Instead of a good amp I got a couple guitars and went with the cheap but versatile amp. Bad Idea. Then I sorta got locked into that as my expendable income didn't allow for a $2000 investment in a better head and selling my guitars at that point wasn't happening as I just got them. Had some recent good fortune and I just am so happy that after the last 3 years of playing the line 6 I finally had the opportunity to not only get a new better amp, but that I was able to buy my absolute dream amp and not owe a dime on it. I seriously look at it and shake my head everyday in disbelief. And my recent guitar is like a huge cherry on that sundae. So what piece of gear did you finally acquire that you never thought possible?
