I didn't even know this place existed until yesterday, when I googled Boss NS-2 vs. MXR Smart Gate. After finding Stitch's thread on how awesome it was I kept browsing and it seems like this is a cool community. I'm also a member at the Seymour Duncan board.
My name is Nick, I'm 21, and I live in Waterloo Ontario about an hour southwest of Toronto. It was actually Weezer's blue album that pushed me toward metal, then after seeing the video for I'm Broken by Pantera I knew I was going to head there for good. Right now some of my favourite bands are Nevermore, In Flames (pre-RTR), Metallica (pre-Load), Arch Enemy, Pantera, Jag Panzer, Necrophagist, Ensiferum, Wintersun and Killswitch Engage.
Anyway I look forward to my stay here.
