James Wal­lace, ex­eter Gui­tarist reader:

Guitarist - - Pedalboard -

I’m a real fan of many of the early-90s shred-era le­gends such as Paul Gilbert and Steve Vai. I’d like to get that re­ally sear­ing but stu­dio-qual­ity high-gain sound that play­ers like Vai got on Pas­sion And War­fare or Sa­tri­ani got on The Ex­trem­ist, plus some of the mod­u­lated clean sounds they made great use of. How­ever, I’m a gig­ging gui­tarist and would like to do this with a fairly portable combo or small stack and a small­ish ped­al­board. How would you ap­proach this and what ped­als would you go for? I’ve got a de­cent bud­get, and I just want to get the most com­pact, po­tent rig I can to cap­ture those in­cred­i­ble sounds.
