  2. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Was looking at the Moog Theremins thought about getting one, but then came across a pedal version by Electro Faustus. Since actual theremins are big investments and require a learning curve, thought I'd get the pedal for my training wheels period for now. And obligatory crappy clip demo...
  3. Music: Other Instruments
    Weak link in my ekit (other than snare but that's not vital) has been my kicks. I upgraded from the stockers to a Pearl Powershifter Eliminator pair with KD-7 triggers, which have been nice but the rubber head and the inverted beater made like they were fighting gravity to bounce back up and...
  4. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    Crunchlab/Liquifier 7's in an RG7421. These are by far my favorite pickups I have ever played. The Crunchlab especially. I wish I found these sooner.

    Heh, it's been a while. So why not. Been wanting to get myself a good Chandler Tube Drive clone for a while now. Was waiting to get a Butler Real Tube but missed out on it when the usual store I get my pedals from stop supplying them. So I checked a few other clones and came across the...

    I ordered a Rat clone from Build Your Own Clone (called the Mouse) last year and finally put it together last week. I didn't time it but I'd say it took about four hours. I was worried I wouldn't have the patience for it but I had a blast doing it and can definitely see trying a few more of...
  7. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    These arrived a few weeks back, but only just got the guitar back from MDV, as I didn't trust myself to route without fucking something up... I'll have some clips up over the next few days, before I do a video demo. Overall sound reminds me a LOT of an EMG 707, but with a little more crunch and...
  8. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    Been having some good guitar karma lately. Since Josh was so generous with the warmoth, I gifted my gold Washburn to a friend that is starting to teach students guitar. In return he sent me a EarthQuaker devices Plumes OD. Kind of awesome since I just gifted Bigdave a tube screamer mini. I...

    Got this a while back, and just remembered I never actually posted about it. It's pretty sweet. :yesway:

    Today I got a little gift in the mail, a Mini Tube Screamer! DBWells on here gifted me a pedal, paying it forward, much thanks! You guys know how these work so no suprises but I love how something as simple as a good boost can add a variety of sounds to 2 simple channels. With my MXR 10 band...

    It's been 9 or 10 years since I had an Axe FX, and this new device does not disappoint. I had it pre-ordered since it was announced and thought it was a great natural progression to be able to take the best amp modeler in existence and make it small enough to fit in a backpack. My old Axe FX...
  13. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    Its been a while since i last posted any sort of NxDs around here, but thought i should probably consolidate a few into a single thread. If Matt can do it, so can I :drumpf: So last year i picked up an atomic amplifire, but i didnt post that i also picked up an old Siggery Heresy off e-bay...

    Saw this announced and had a chuckle. Then I read the concept and thought, that'd be cool to have. So I ordered it and got it. Obligatory crappy clip. Basically Mythos Pedals built a signature model for session musician/teacher RJ Ronquillo (who has a pretty solid resume). The silly slang...

    Got this in a massive sale. 30% off and I couldn't say no. And a quick crappy impromptu clip testing it. It's cool for TC to combine the EHX Micro Pog and the Boss OC2 into one pedal. All octave ranges track great, and the sub 2 is cleaner than the OC2 or even the MXR Bass Octave mini...

    Finally got myself a Black Winter a few months ago and was so overwhelmingly disappointed with it that I figured I needed to sell it and replace it asap. Since the Elysian Trident II was on my short list, I reached out to Adam and he hooked me up with a great deal on a hand wound one. It took a...

    I felt my pedalboard was getting a little out of control, so I wanted to condense a bit. It came down to either the HX effects or the Fractal FX8. Had the FX8 not been discontinued or had it's last firmware update 3 years ago, I would have given it more serious consideration. I had the MS3 for...

    Got this whilst trying out the new Free The Tone Direct Volume pedal. While the latter is coming, well, later down the line, this thread is about the former. And obligatory crappy IG clip. This monstrosity is a collaboration between Third Man Records (namely Jack White) and Gamechager...

    Another delay pedal. Though more geared towards the classic analog tape echo persuasion. The time I spent just tweaking about was rather brief, but lovely time well spent. Lots of tonal options and I love the playback/feedback button options. I'll probably use this as a mostly studio...
  20. Guitar: Gear Discussion
    I was set in just going in and out of the store with just the Apranoid as a noisemaker pedal. But the store also got me to try out the Meris Hedra. Trying them back to back, they're not remotely the same but, I did enjoy the Hedra with all the ridiculous sounds it can produce. The most fun...
