    This is Bella our 3 year old Soft Coat Wheaten Terrier rescue dog. We adopted her two weeks ago today. Lucas our beloved 13 year old Lhasa Monster passed away last February. She’s a great addition to the family. Very glad to have gotten her.

    King of Tone

    Well after waiting better than three and a half years, I finally got my KOT. I played it this evening and am truly amazed at how great it sounds. Went with high gain and external mode switch on the red side and standard gain on the yellow side. It inspires me to revisit the many pedals I’ve...

    BYOC Analog Delay

    Has anyone here built this pedal? How well does it work for you? I just put one together and quite frankly I underwhelmed with the results. It is very noisy and self oscillates with the slightest provocation. I checked everything and it is built correctly. I guess it is not what I was after...

    NCD New Cabinet Day

    This is a shout-out for JD Newell. John recently made me a Dual Showman Reverb cabinet for my 1970 Pro Reverb. I wanted the larger cabinet to match my 1973 Bandmaster Reverb. The new cabinet is fantastic in fit, finsh, workmanship.

    New Old Pickup Day. I recently decided to give the Dynasonic in the neck of my 97 Tele a rest. I've had an late 60's - early 70's Guild Humbucker in my stash for a few years.

    NPD Run Off Groove Umble

    I've just completed building 2 ROG Umble pedals. This immediately has become my favorite overdrive. By far the best sounding overdrive to my ears. No ICs, no mosfets, and especially no diodes of any sort. It is four cascaded Jfet gain stages with a wierd take on a Fender tone stack. Thick fat...

    Guyatone Ga-240 Given to me by my good friend Andrew Scott of Blindworm Guitars. Full recap to replace the old oil caps & filter can. Has the original NEC 12AX7s & 6BQ5 tubes. Rewired AC with a 3 wire cord. The reverb & tremolo both work. What a fun little amp.

    Reverb Pedal opinions please

    I was wondering if anyone has compared The Electro Harmonix Holy Grail Nano with the J Rockett Boing? I'm looking for a simple pedal to use with my Gretsch 6156 Playboy amp. I'm not interested in a 4 or 5 knob infinitly adjustable experience, just some reverb along the line of built in amp...

    What is a good quality Chorus pedal?

    I was looking for some input on which chorus pedal to buy. I want something basic. I was thinking about getting an MXR Micro Chorus or a EXH Small Clone type pedal. I would prefer true bypass. Thanks,
