    I'm not a good guitar player, don't practice at all, but love playing guitar, jamming, writing songs. Anyone else?

    @Cosmic Cowboy Thats really pretty great advice..! When I was younger, quite a bit younger now I should say. I started at roughly 6-7yrs old and heckled my father (a serious real studio pro, but lousy impatient teacher) to show me just enough to play the Punk Rock, Grunge.. Green Day, Silver...

    -Mark Sampson (designed first rugged, roadworthy, Hot-rodded Vox Ac-30. Creator/designe; Matchless, Badcat, Star amplification +Others) -Tony Rice- The gentleman’s gentleman! Totally changed the world of Bluegrass, Showed us how true genius could be captured by one man with alone in a room with...

    Went to Guitar Center yesterday.

    Hey @Ben Harmless have you checked out Matt’s Music down towards the south shore? How about The Music Emporium in Lexington? Absolutely drool worthy stuff I never see outside of photos online, and magazines. You may already be aware of it this. But if you’re going to make the trek to NH, skip...

    Went to Guitar Center yesterday.

    I go to nearby GC's every 6 months to remind myself why I don't go to GC.......works every time. ^^^Yess! Exactly..

    Soldering irons...

    X-Tronic absolutely best bang for your buck! The performance is really good (nearly as good as a Hakko FX888d!!) and this model was what I used after I’d moved beyond the 11$ soldering pencil stage but wasn’t ready to drop 120$ plus on soldering equipment. ** Now here’s what’s especially...

    Bad Cat Paw, Victory Copper pre, Kingsley squier TB Anyone own one? How do you run it?

    Hey guys I’ve been dabbling with both ends of analog & digital amp modeling.. Experimenting with all possible connective configurations to hopefully discover the best ways to maximize the sonic capabilities of a specific designs.. But I’ve been thinking about going a different route. I’m a big...

    Now that Dumble is RIP... I'm curious

    Haha, I wouldn’t trust GC to repair a clip on tuner, much less an obscenely expensive Dumble or vintage amplifier!! 🤣

    Now that Dumble is RIP... I'm curious

    Hey, I wanted thank you for posting this I hadn’t heard of Mr Dumbles passing. It will certainly be interesting to see how his passing will effect the already obscene prices of his amplifiers. I don’t know how long it’s been since his passing, but I imagine the average value of a typical ODS has...

    Looking for a bright glassy, low output “50’s wind” Strat pickup Klein 59’?

    Haha, yah the up close shot probably made it appear worse than it really is. I’m a tad OCD about the care and cleaning of my guitars. I even deoxit the jacks & clean the enclosures underneath the knobs of the pedals on my board regularly (nearly a dozen I remove the knobs, the whole nine!). The...

    Looking for a bright glassy, low output “50’s wind” Strat pickup Klein 59’?

    Thank you! Yah, I’ve pretty much made up my mind and plan on going with the Klein 58’s. I was already heavily leaning in that direction to begin with.. And everything I’ve read and been told suggests that the 58’s not only fit what I’m looking for but seem to be the overall favorite in the Klein...

    Dude you definitely gotta put a cloth to that pickgaurd.. Those pickup covers look to be growing a new species of mossy fungi!! Haha 😁

    Finally found a satisfying univibe

    @neilybob100 Well I was perusing this thread to brush up on univibes currently popular/available and figured this thread has run its course, and I hijack at times myself (yah I’m a rebel.. ;)) but the short answer your question is; running two univibes in series is not a good idea.. Regardless...

    Looking for a bright glassy, low output “50’s wind” Strat pickup Klein 59’?

    YES!! That was one of the models I was looking into..
