I have now doubled the allowed size for uploads. Maybe that helps to post pictures.

1. look at "properties" of jpg to see size of image
2. make a rough estimate of what percentage reduction is needed to get it to 200kB
3. open jpg in MS Paint and resize according to rough estimate percentage
4. save as a jpg
5. recheck properties to see if rough estimate reduction resulted in an image size under but close to 200kB
6. do another small reduction if necessary

there is probably a much easier way to resize jpgs, bit i have been using paint to edit images for ages, so im comfortable with this method
Same method as me. ;)

Yay! One of my pet peeves about this forum :D (to be more accurate, you can put me in the "takes three tries to hit 200kb" club)

I already had the Simble Overdrive and added the Predriver today. Quite useful with a clean amp to fatten it up and really juices up the overdrive pedal. Looking forward to trying it with other pedals. Reminds me of the Dingotone HZD but with nothing like the level of control that pedal gives you.

Recently got a Wampler Plexi Drive Mini.
I buddy of mine loves his Plexi Drive, even through BF/SF Fenders, which tend to really polarize many drives and dirts.
I don't have a proper Marshall In A Box, so I picked this one up. It's great! Sounds really good with my modified Bassman Ten, which was what I hoped. I really wanted to get a more Marshall-y drive for that amp.

JDM pedals "Elektrika" Mk1 Tonebender/Zonk

I think the Fat/Tight switch on the side qualifies it as a Zonk (which I gather is a Mk1 with some different capacitor values(?))

Its nice and raw, doesn't clean up like a Mk1.5 (which is essentially a two transistor fuzz face circuit)

Looks cool! I didn't know of this German boutique builder.

I hope it's okay for you that I edited your posts. ;)

Totally cool, Pepe, and thank you. I am embarrassed that I had so quickly forgotten how to do that properly

I’ve had my eye on one of these for a while.

I wanted something to leave on all the time that would make my clean tone more responsive. This does that job really well. These days I’m playing with more bands where the emphasis is on a good clean tone with light overdrives.

In the past it’s been mainly heavy and classic rock with some kind of high gain or other. I’m still doing the rock covers stuff but also trying to expand into other types of music too.
