I've been lax about posting new gear for about a year and a half now, since I kind of grew out of using forums for talking about actual gear, but I forgot that it can be fun sometimes. So here's a fresh acquisition. Awesome forumite traded me this (and a sick Keeley DS-1 I will try instead of the Maxon OD808 I have been using for years now some time in the near future) in a deal involving my Broderick. The Whammy functions don't really appeal to me, since all my guitars have double locking tremolos and I wouldn't be looking to replace those with a pedal, but I fucking LOVE harmonizers. I mess around with the built in one on my shitty Peavey Vypyr all the time. I've wanted one for a while now, but couldn't justify dropping the money for something that I would just use to sound horrible. But you know, I figured I would have to get one eventually and the time was right. Dunno how the harmonizer on this compares to other pedals, but I find it tracks well enough.
And here is a little shitty late night jamming. This 1982 BC Rich Mockingbird Elite is my favorite guitar to play, bar none, as long as I am discussing gear I forgot to post about when I got it. When I first recieved it I was unaware it was the extra short BC Rich 24 and 5/8ths scale and I strung it up with 48-10.5 tuned DGCFAD thinking it was 25.5 (had I known I would have dismissed it as too loose without even trying it) and it's a very unique, easy to play feel. Most of my other guitars are 52-11 (25.5 or 24.75) for "real man tension", but the light tension and short scale on this inspires all kinds of stuff I would never try on my other guitars, so I can't bear to switch it, though you have to seriously adjust your picking technique to not knock it out of tune on more aggressive rhythms. Trills (which I am incredibly fond of) and vibrato are particularly effortless on it. This is just sloppy late night shit into EZ mix II's stock "lead" amp sim (too much delay for anything involving rhythms, but I was just messing around), but I am definitely already enjoying the harmonizer function way more than I should.

That's a pretty killer pedalboard
Also, I think you need a green screen to stand/sit in front of when doing videos so you can add fantastical backgrounds.
