Is there a company that will consult about a rig online without sending everything to it?

I have been trying to sort out a live rig for a few months, and I have found the amp combination I want.

Now, I need to figure out the following:

1- I need an ABY (I'm thinking Radial?) to switch between/combine them

2- I would like to use an old tyme Fender Reverb Box in front of one, but maybe in the FX loop of the other if possible (?)

3- Need on/off switch for Reverb and would like to pair it with vibrato on/off and channel switch (?)

4- Need core petal bored. Have the petals (not a lot) but need to hook them up and make the cables

5- Want bored on a battery - have battery, need the power cables

6- Probably a few other things.

I don't want to ship everything to Nashville or LA to do this. Does anyone know of a service that can help with something like this?

Probably will dump the tremolo because I have the amp one which is better. Maybe dump the yellow overdrive for something different if I can find one I like better. I want to keep the Boss suitcase, which is really nice. I have a tape echo I would like to use but it's not practical so I'm keeping the petal. I'm not into crazy flavor of the month FX and would rather stick with simple off-the-shelf things that IMHO work better.

I have the big plug in Boss chorus, but the new one sounds better and can run on the rechargeable batteries I want to use with the bored.

Buy an old tweed tube amp and plug in direct. Problem solved, thanks for doing your part to save Rock N Roll.

Not very practical when you're trying to replicate album parts and need specific sounds for that.

Nice set of basic pedals. Is that the board for the suitcase, or does the suitcase only have those pedal sized nooks? I haven't seen one for many years...

That reverb unit sounds best in front as it interacts great with input first stage.

seems like you have what you are talking about set up by yourself if you are ok with soldering and figuring out the few basic switches that you want. The boss pedals all go together with those simple metal Male/Male connectors (no cords needed for those) you could solder some nice custom patch cables maybe with switchcraft 90s to keep the small footprint.

Thanks, This is a new suitcase Boss makes. I usually make my own boards but I like the rolling feature of this one and it's well made so I figured I would give it a try.

Get a GigRig and you can switch amps, ampfx and pedals on and off at one click. Still have to make cables but that's not that hard.
Thanks. That's a little too complicated for what I want, but it looks like I could pay for a couple hours and have them give me some advice. I think I'm going to do that.

I'm sure you could get someone at sweet water to consult with you on this. it's a pretty bare bones setup.
