Amps
I currently practice with and gig with a Peavey JSX Signature head and cabinet.

Head
The head sports 120 watts in 16, 8, or 4ohms (switchable)
Four EL34s and Four 12AX’s
Three Channels, Ultra, Crunch, and Clean
Master Volume as well Channel Volume with an over all Presence and Resonance Dial
Noise Gate control
It’s built like a tank and weights a ton. About 60lbs just for the head!

Cabinet
4X12 slant Cabinet
400 watts continuous power handling
16 ohms mono
Four 12 inch custom JSX speakers rear mounted “closed back”
11 ply birch Baffles
Mic simulated XLR direct output
This is also built like a tank and weights a ton for a 4X12. This cabinet weights in at about 90lbs

Effects
I run a pretty bare bones ship when it comes to effects. I like the grit of stock distortion on the JSX so I use my head for that. I run boss pedals through my loop. I currently am running with inline Chromatic Boss tuner, Boss DD-6 Digital Delay, Boss Digital Reverb, Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble, Boss BF-3 Flanger, Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor. I also use an Ibanez Weeping Demon Wah pedal. I run all of this through a Furman Power Conditioner and call it good.
