    Chime on in, folks. What equipment/setup do you use for worship?

      Thanks for the vid! Looking forward to more.

      I’m using a Les Paul into a Vox AC15C1. My board goes: Tuner ->JHS Double Barrel (Morning Glory is typically an always-on for me, I only get a little grit from it) ->Custom OD that is similar to a RAT ->EB JR Volume Pedal ->Micro POG ->DD-5 ->Carbon Copy ->RV-5 ->Strymon BlueSky.

      What pedals were you using? I paused in the close up and saw a few, like the OCD and TC Delay, the polytune and compressor. Didn’t recognize the other two – black and orange. Any other pedals used during the taping of this?

      Thanks again!!

      I use a Vox Valvetronix VT40+ amp. I know guitar purists do not like modelling amps, but this one has nothing to do with the normal Line-6ish stuff. The tone is great and it is very, very flexible. You can lower your volume without losing the tone qualities.

      With it, I actually don’t use any pedals at all, only gain from amp models and some built-in compression (it’s not the best, but good IMHO). It works great on my 4 guitars: Strat, Tele, Epiphone dot and Ibanez.

    I try and keep my electric setup fairly simple for Church. I run a Telecaster through A Blues Junior or Classic 30 into a tuner, Fulltone Fulldrive 2, and a Delay. If I can be bothered, I will add a volume pedal for swelling and a tremolo for extra ambience. Most of the time though, I find the drive and delay to be enough. 95% of tone is in your fingers.
    In the time I have played electric in Churches, Telecasters have always come out on top in terms of sound and cutting through a mix. Mine has a maple neck which makes it extra bright, but the Filtertron type guitars (Gretch’s etc.) also work really well. LP’s have always been mud in the mix when I have played them at Churches and Youth Events. Strats have been 50/50 for me.
