Re: Let's see those pedalboards!

I've just put A DSM/Humboldt Simplifier on the end of my home/practice/testing pedal board for silent playing, especially in the evening It may even do hanging off my main board for rehearsals or maybe even for fly dates where I don't want to put my amps in the hands of airport baggage handlers if y...

Re: $7,750 pedal....

I love the JHS "can you pick the expensive pedal" series of videos

they did one with a $7000 Klon and a $30 amazon clone

the listeners chose the $30 pedal!

Re: BOSS Pedals you sold like a fool and are thinking of rebuying!

I've bought a few OD-3s in my time. I never use it, but I'm not selling the one I currently have

Re: Guitar Cab Mics

I ended up with a NOS black 609 and a brand new 906

I got the 609 really cheap - and then discovered what people are selling them for these days!

so I decided to keep it safe in its case for now, and get a modern disposable 906

The 906 on its flat setting sound identical to my ears to the black 609

Re: Exterior Maintenance

I would hit that with a bit of non-abrasive car polish. For battery corrosion and proper rust, I clean the area up with vaseline. That neutralises the corrosion and leaves it looking black and clean rather than brown and crusty

the KORT covers are just brilliant

Re: BOSS Pedals you sold like a fool and are thinking of rebuying!

I sold on a FZ-2 I got from you on the TDPRI forum Jim, and wish I'd given it a bit longer. My taste in fuzz continually evolves, I shouldn't ever sell fuzz pedals!

Re: Guitar Cab Mics

I gather the current e609 (silver version) is quite a "bright" mic, and that the e906 on its bright EQ setting is equivalent to that sound. Good for country and metal, i am led to believe (I love the way country and metal guitar players often have the same tone requirements) The 906 on its flat sett...
