So I'm in the market for getting a big boy rig now, as I only have a Boss Katana 50 and a few pedals. I've been interested in getting an AxeFX for the last few years, but I realize I'll need more than just that to use it in a live scenario. For the hell of it, I priced out two rigs to see what kind of value I could get for my $$$, and I'm not really certain what to go with. I play mostly prog metal and pop punk. (Prices are for a new item, but I have no issues buying used) The t00bz rig: Peavey Invective MH - $699 Zilla Fatboy 2x12 - $750 Ernie Ball VP JR (since Invective MH has no master volume) - $99 TC Dreamscape (for chorus/flanger) - $169 Total is $1720 The AxeFX rig: AxeFX III - $2249 Yamaha DXR10 FRFR speaker - $599 Crown XLS1002 poweramp - $339 Furman ML-8x power conditioner - $150 Gator G-PRO-6U-13 rack case - $189 Total is $3527 As a note, I already have distortion/reverb/delay pedals so not factoring those in. Now I'm not certain if I've chosen the best value for my money with the AxeFX stuff, but from what I've read these are pretty solid pieces of gear. I would love some external insight into which of these rigs would be more worthwhile, especially considering the AxeFX setup is about twice the cost of the tube amp setup. Thanks in advance!
