    Nobels ODR-1 First Impressions.

    To me the way to use the Nobels ODR-1 is as a grit pedal for rhythm guitar. The session guys in Nashville who made them famous like Tom Bukovac, all use them for a lower gain rhythm tone for a broken up sound. I rarely see boards with the gain beyond half. Most of them are about 10/11 o' clock...

    Xotic BB preamp

    The BB Preamp isn't as much gain as a Crunch Box I know. I've not tried an SL Drive but from demos, I'd argue the BB has less gain than that one as well. The BB is to my ears a bit Marshally yes, but lower gain sounds. The BB stands for Bluesbreaker. It's not a Bluesbreaker pedal circuit, but...

    What is it about Overdrive Pedals. They probably equal in number All Other Effect Pedals Combined !!! Why????

    I think the reason there are so many dirt pedals is because there are so many people buying them vs something else. Companies like Wampler, JHS, Rockett, etc are going to do a lot of dirt pedals because that's what sells the most. Even Josh Scott thinks that it's getting to be a bit long in the...

    What do you dislike about the Telecaster ?

    My list is pretty small. Now if this were about Stratocasters, which I *do* play, the list might be a bit longer lol. My only real gripe with most Teles is the neck pickup - which I almost always end up changing to either another pickup type entirely (strat, P-90, minihum, humbucker, etc) or...

    Should The Eagles give it up?

    I consider Walsh and Schmit to be original members in the sense they were with the band in the 70s. I never cared for Bernie Leadon personally as a player or the first couple of albums, I was way more into the rockier music and so I gravitated to Joe Walsh who replaced him. I like the later 70s...

    Favorite neck humbucker?

    Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates. It has a brighter thing that pairs great with a Tele bridge pickup and doesn't sound out of congress with the bridge single coil. I have one in a Tele with a Klein Epic 52 bridge and I love the combo.

    Super Bowl food idea's ..

    The local Mexican restaurant has a special for takeout this year and last. You get 15 beef tacos hard or soft shell, cheese sauce, salsa, chips, refried beans, and cheese rice on these big takeout trays. We're doing a box of soft shell and a box of hard shell. That should do it for us. In years...

    Your favorite EQ pedal?

    I boost a lot of 800 and level mostly. I do pull back bass occasionally, especially with Gibson guitars with humbuckers. I never pull back treble. I like a lot of high end in my sound, though. I might actually be inclined to add highs sometimes, especially with say an ES-335 type guitar. :)...

    Your favorite EQ pedal?

    Yeah, I'm usually looking to boost things, so for me that's why the stock unit didn't cut it. I usually like a "healthy" mid boost and level up.

    Your favorite EQ pedal?

    I'm always looking for a mid *boost* though, usually I'm always boosting vs cutting. Usually I'm trying to boost level and boost mids for a solo. I don't think it's possible to have too much mids on a guitar. Bass is the only thing I'd ever cut. I've never had it sound artificial using the...

    Your favorite EQ pedal?

    That's unfortunate. Mine wasn't an issue of hum based on power and just turning it on as much as it was if you pushed any of the sliders up to a boost a frequency, that's when hiss would kick in, the higher the slider the higher the hiss. Also the Analog Man has a bit more clearer fidelity to...

    Your favorite EQ pedal?

    I like the BOSS GE-7 with the Analog Man mod. It basically shuts it up (no hiss), and somehow makes it a little more pleasant sounding on the top end. Turns a good pedal into a great one IMO. Really worth it for the lack of hiss.

    The REVISED tele BRIDGE pickup magnet type poll

    I'm an old school hotter early Blackguard era fan and for me thats A3. More Keith Richards than Don Rich. Broadcaster and Nocaster type tones. Twangy, but beefy twang. And plenty crunchy. Less of that clean, bell like Bakersfield tone. When it comes to country music, I like more of a rockin'...

    JHS Morning Glory v4 - WOW

    The BB Preamp IS very very Tubescreamery if you listen to a cranked up TS side by side. Think of it like a higher gain tubescreamer. Like a Digitech Bad Monkey (which is a TS clone with a bass/treb tone stack also) but slightly higher gain. I'm not sure about the RC or AC at all but from...

    Favorite Tube Screamer variant....not trying to cork sniff, but...

    I love Tube Screamers. Into clean amps, though. My favorite is probably the TS9 actually. A little edgier than an TS808. The TS7 and TS5 don't do it for me. And JRC4558-equipped TS10s are too rich for my blood. Maybe someday though! I hate the sound of gain on gain. Be it a gain pedal into a...

    Eagles- Already Gone, Take It Easy..

    That one is still a favorite of mine to play live to this day in any band. In the tribute band I was in we did it exact as it was on the On The Border record including the modulated last chorus and the only solos were the two after the 2nd verse. Now in the cover band and jams I'm in, it's...

    Eagles- Already Gone, Take It Easy..

    Which one? Already Gone? That was my favorite to do live, 2nd favorite would be Hotel California. I did the Bernie Leadon intro as the Joe Walsh guy in the band. I also played Glenn Frey's guitar solo as our "Glenn Frey" in the tribute band played acoustic only. The Don Felder guy played the...

    Eagles- Already Gone, Take It Easy..

    I was in an Eagles tribute for a couple years before we had to disband for health reasons of one of the members and didn't want to replace him. I use loud clean 6L6 Fender Blackface/Silverface amps and pedals for all of the distortion. I was using a Wampler Paisley Drive in the band, it was my...

    Timmy v. Lightspeed (Or: Two Pedals from the same “Family”?)

    I found the Timmy almost impossible to dial in with my Black/Silver Face Fender amps. It was painfully bright and thin. I love the Lightspeed and the Gain Changer SR. Great pedals. Easy to dial in and warm and musical.

    new jhs pedal line ...

    The boost in the AT+ is 808 based, not SHO based. Josh has said that himself that it's a 808 style with 2 of the knobs "fixed", he based it off of Andy Timmons 808 pedal. Similar to what Wampler did with the boost side of the Plexi Drive Deluxe. It's not like his Prestige (formerly Mr. Magic)...

    new jhs pedal line ...

    I vehemently disagree here. As someone who has had an Angry Charlie V2 and a Crunch Box at the same time - I can tell you they sound nothing alike. Also, the Angry Charlie had 4 knobs, the Crunch Box has 3. I fail to see how they can be identical if the knob numbers aren't the same. At the very...

    new jhs pedal line ...

    With regards to the 3 series, I'm personally not a fan due to the graphics or lack thereof. I am a fan however of the price and the principle behind it. I can't help but to wonder if this was like some kind of social experiment by Josh where he would make a good sounding pedal at a great price...

    new jhs pedal line ...

    No, it doesn't make JHS better but we shouldn't be looking up to Devi. She isn't any better than Josh, and I'd argue that she is actually worse, at this point in time as it stands right now. It's possible for her to change as Josh has. And I'll give her that credit when I see she's deserving of...
