Default What enhancement gear do you use as a solo act?

Hello. Just wondering what pedals and other gear you use to help you live?
For instance: harmony vocal pedal, percussion, backing tracks, looper, etc.

I have a TC Helicon Harmony G-XT and A Salgo Footdrum system. I also have a Zoom G3 to enhance the guitar sound. I'm not sure if I'll use the Harmony and the Salgo live, but they are fun for practice.

Thanks!

Tonedexter for the guitars, TCH Play Acoustic for voice, harmonies, reverb and looper. Body Rez is zeroed out in favor of the Tonedexter.

I also use a small Mackie mixer.

I get the sound I need out of my three amps in live performance; Roland AC-33, AER Compact 60 and Schertler Roy.

That is, without any DI.

Pigtronix Infinity looper, Strymon Blue Sky Reverb for solos, QSC touchmix 8 to EQ, compress slightly and dial out feedback.

I try to get enough of a groove going that people will clap along and provide their own enhancement. For a while I tried handing out percussion toys, but sometimes people don't give them back. And you have to be careful who you give them to -- not easy to make snap judgments on a person's sense of rhythm.

Hi BC

Cut Capos to simulate DADGAD or CGCGCD tunings.

Clip on tuner…

Outboard preamp…

No enhancements.

On the rare times I do a solo gig, Loudbox mini charge, Sure PG81 condenser mike. That's all.

Acoustic guitar > BOSS pedals > Fishman Performer amp.

Boss Ch 1 Super Chorus

All pedals fit neatly in my BOSS BCB6 case. Can get everything in and out in one trip!

Guitar, amp, vocal microphone, mic stand, wireless guitar system, stool and me sitting on it. Enhancements: a touch of reverb on both amp channels. Reverb is available on the amp. A slight mid scoop on the guitar, everything else flat.

One shot of tequila....only one
That and a K&K dual source set up with an onboard pre (mic and Mini)
99% of the places I play have a decent sound system and an ok or better sounding room.

I do have a guitar coming that has an L.R. Baggs Lyric so look forward to trying that. But I prefer to take the minimalist approach
