    Pedal board build

    Polytune=>PitchFork=>Odie=>Velvet Fuzz=>Flashback=>Mini Trem=>Mini Chorus=>Topanga=>HOF=>MXR EQ=>RC3 This is it for me. Still trying to see how I can include the Odyssey. I had it between the Odie and the Velvet Fuzz but the "tone suck" of the board increased dramatically so I had to take it out...

    Why is Sam Ash's website so horrible?

    Sam Ash's used gear website takes foreeeever to load, and you cannot even get an idea of store inventory for new gear. Compared to Reverb or even GC (or anyone else for that matter), their website is abysmal. I imagine they must be losing a TON of business. Is this some weird business...

    Love the Pro Jr but it's too loud for practice. Would a Champ do the trick?

    After many years as a tube snob, I have discovered the Boss Nextone Artist. The stock speaker needs to be swapped out for it to really sound like a tube amp. I put a Texas Heat in mine (also tried a Cannabis Rex and Swamp Thang), and now it is really indistinguishable from a tube amp. Now it...

    When did separate "bedroom amp" and "gigging amp" become a thing?

    If you can crank a Princeton to 7 your neighbors must be quite some ways away, and your family longsuffering! I can't crank mine beyond 3 without my teen reading me the riot act! So I bought a Z Air Brake and a Tone King Comet 20 and now we're all happy campers.

    Why are Gibson ES-335's so expensive?

    I will have to disagree with you on this one - from experience. Over the years, I tried virtually every 335 substitute cheaper than a Gibson (and a couple more expensive), to see if I could get the 335 tone mojo for less. No way. They do not sound like a Gibson 335. No amount of setting up...
