    Sustainiac simulation?

    Freq out pedal will probably be the cheapest solution as mentioned; just thought I'd throw out the PC1 and agree about the price being up there, but they are truly great super strats with their own version of a sustainer (believe it morphed from the technology in an early Floyd Rose-design that...

    Best wireless system to work with the Axe2?

    G90 is the best around for the money. Upgrade the cable to a neutrik silent jack and you can get by with one tranmitter and silent switching between guitars; I've used one for over 100 shows; multiple guitars and one transmitter.

    Mission pedals output level lower than normal output? (without pedal)

    Scott/gents - I screwed up; recalibrated (and paid more attention this time) and all is well. Both my new missions started at 0 and topped out at 116 which explains the issue; after calibrated for the 3rd and 4th time (just to be sure), I'm good to go! Looking forward to using the new rig...

    Anybody else do gigs without miking or going direct to FOH?

    Slightly differing opinion; if you have any instruments going through FOH/PA and not the others, you will have an uneven sound quality in any venue. - most importantly with keys and guitars. Bass will carry and isn't necessary to go direct or mic up unless you are in a large venue; drums follow...

    Suggestions for compact PA-System

    If you want something ultra portable, take a look at Carvin's RX1200 powered mixer; the new model is the RX1200L - it used to come with an Anvil-style road case which you can buy separately. Good bang for the buck and 4 powered channels, so you can have two separate monitor mixes if you so...
