    A Pre-emptive Biyang Fuzz Star CL buy...

    Just silly posting, as Tuesday, I should be getting a ( local, CL) Biyang Fuzz Star fuzz, and I'm kind of excited! I'm a Biyang pedals fanboy ( years now, various), currently using their Reverb and their Rat clone, and have always wanted to try out the Fuzz Star. I believe it is a Big Muff...

    More volume out of Monoprice 5-watt tube amp?

    Hi folks! I am finally using this wonderful little amp in a practice/jam band context where I can finally hear it 'at volume' ( as I think Brits say) I absolutely love its clean tone at 1/2 volume, and serious crunch and good sustain cranked. The tone is just what I hoped for. I'm ( right now...

    Better contrast between text and background?

    For those of us with aging eyes, Is it possible to have darker (the non bold type) text type? Between the light type, teeny size, and yellow background- I can barely read (or write) since the 'upgrade ' I've been a TDPRI member a long time, love it here, but dang it is hard for me to read...

    My ' Fake Champ Amp' Pedal Kit

    Just wanted to show off a little easy fun project I've been working on, on the cheap. Yet I know I can actually play some of my regular gigs with this stuff. Briefly- I have always wanted a Fender Champ ( my friends have them, I like them- but cannot afford!) as I like they way they sound- even...

    Just 're-bought' a cheap OD, I sold 2 mos. Ago!

    Ok, first: Not the exact same pedal I sold, but same model ( from - I just bought a 2nd Joyo Sweet Baby Overdrive, as ( in my ear), I feel like it may be the perfect low Gain OD to pair up with the Monoprice/Stage Right 5-watt tube amp I just got ( ordered Christmas night-...

    My first NGD posting: '69 Tele Thinline!

    Well, now it's called ' Classic Vibe '60's Thinline,' but it is wonderful! I've always loved the look and light weight of the mahogany-body '69 Tele Thinline- always wanted one... I know this one is orange-y and Nato, but close enough, and affordable. I love my 2004 Standard Telecaster, but...

    Is the Celestion Ten 30 10" a good speaker?

    That's about it! Just curious, as I see this speaker used from time to time in some new amps ( the Fender Custom Vibro Champ, w/10" I think, comes to mind) Last year, I bought a used Fender Frontman 25R that had this Celestion in it, replacing the stock. I just thought it sounded thin, and...

    I just got 2 alerts ( from mods, right?) for deleted posts, deleted because of 'Language' This is a first for me, as yes I may use a 'bad' word (s), and I indeed may want to use those words, to convey what I really mean- but I never spell the entire word, I use **** or $#%#$!!... This is the...

    Does such a 9V Battery tester exist??

    Ok to the point, Is there a 9V battery tester that might accept a 1/4" cable from my acoustic guitars' endpoint jack, to test installed batteries? My situation is I have 2 guitars, each takes a 9V battery, mounted inside soundhole ( end of neck) and there is no way to remove the battery ( to...

    Anyone else having freezing/crashing issues today on TDPRI?

    It may just be my POS cheap Android phone ( I do everything on my phone, not my laptop), but my phone has been really giving me a hard time, crashing just about every time I go to a Forum thread link- all day long! - may just be a dying phone ( trying to clean it up all the time)

    Are most Rats/ Rat clones similar?

    So I'm thinking about pairing up an affordable Rat/ Rat clone with a lower Gain OD pedal ( usually ON) for my small, low-volume gigs as my distortion. I have a TS clone stacked there now which sounds good, but not enough distortion ( even at high Drive), and a Fuzz is just not working for me -...

    A new, cheap, ' Not bad...' FUZZ

    OK, I've become a bit of a cheap pedal junkie in the last two years. I actually am very happy with my long-time Boss board ( 5 pedals/ use 4 at gigs), 20+ years now. But last year, after a few years of constantly reading good reports on Joyo, Caline, and Donner pedals, well, I started buying a...

    My wife just told me ( no info yet) that James Harman has passed, at 74 ( he has been very I'll with cancer) This fantastic blues musician was who I was told to listen to ( by the guys on the blues band I auditioned in '92), to play rhythm ( some lead) like the guys in his band, The James...

    Ok, I'm just fooling around right now at home with my Epi SG ( 2018 '66-style Pro), restringing for weekend gigs, yay! In our apartment I basically play any electric through my MXR Classic Distortion ( really an OD), into my Micro Cube. I basically run any models pretty clean, and use...

    Nice little Pedalboard ( on the cheap)

    So yes, these are cheap import clones I got last year and this year. I bought a few, then a few more ( sold a few) then figured I needed a board!
