Re: New BOSS pedals!

That is sooooo cool!
Rarely seen time machine gear is just as exciting to see as wildly beat up gear in my book. You don't see many older pedals on the extreme ends of condition.
The battery is a trip! It's a dry cell/carbon, right? I had forgotten about the 80s era "BOSS" labeled batteries.

A real treasure has fallen into my laps. Watch my very first unboxing video here! :D
Amazing find! It's a time machine from 1980!

Re: Isolated power supply

9.6V is the voltage of a fresh 9V battery and the output voltage of a Boss PSA power supply. Does 9.6V versus 9V really matter? Can I tell the difference? No, not really. Why did I make the mod? I had the device open and it took almost no effort or parts to do it. The more interesting question migh...

Re: Isolated power supply

What is the benefit of the 9.6V regulator over the 9V regulator? Since they are regulated, they don't have voltage drop or sag, do they? Is it to emulate a fresh 9V alkaline (which all seem to be around 9.6V)? I have read some things, but some of what I read seems like opinion and speculation (espec...

Re: New Non-BOSS Pedals

👍 If you ever get the chance, try a Hotone TAPE EKO! It sounds absolutely awesome. 8-) I will! It seems really cool. I had a search on ebay and reverb for 'Hotone Eko". Lots of Binary Ekos popped up. The Tape version never popped up. I imagine everyone that has one is holding on to them. :D

Re: New Boss IR-2 Amp & Cabinet

Having the long chip DD3 in the IR2 loop was not working great, it would lightly clip on the initial attack, at all settings and levels. I ultimately wanted both EQ and delay, and there weren't many options if I were to use the small upper compartment for one of the pedals. There doesn't seem to be ...

Re: New Non-BOSS Pedals

Picked up another Hotone Skyline Eko, got this one for the IR2 headphone board.
I like how the EKO sounds, but I like it's super small size even better.

Re: Isolated power supply

Nice. A hot rodded power supply! Very smart to use the lid as a heat sink.

Re: New Toys

Yeah, 2204 pricing went through the roof! Understandably so. Such a great amp! After having and letting a couple really bad ass Marshalls go in the late 90s (83 2203 and 69 1959T), I did find a cool substitute: the DSL50. Green Crunch mode gives me 85-90% of what a JCM800 2204 provides. Best part i...
