My guitars are all relatively cheap - the most expensive is the Prophesy, followed by the now ancient Antoria, then two Harley Bentons and a modified Affinity Strat. My acoustic is a Lidl special - to be fair it plays OK and sounds amazing, loud, deep and bright all at the same time. My basses are a different matter. The cheapo one is an Ibanez, again plays and sounds better than it ought to for the money; the other three are all Hohner Professionals. I've still yet to find any other brand of bass that sounds as good (to my ears). My favourite of those is my 1000+ gigged 4 string B Bass with a Steinberg snap-off bridge.
Amps for guitar are two Fender Mustang 3s, bass amps 2 Trace Elliot heads (500 stereo and 200 mono) and a clutch of 1x15 cabs, Hartke A100, and Harley Benton 300 (which is the one I use for keeping my hand in - can't recommend it highly enough: stick a 1x15 cab on the bottom and you have a gigable rig). I only have multi effects pedals, both Zoom, a G2 and G3. Bass pedals are my old faithful Boss BE5B and Digitech 200BP. Used to have a whammy pedal, but that died.
I am trying really hard not to look at the Thomann or Andertons sites. Honest.
