    Only 1 Pedal Allowed

    An EQ pedal, through the FX loop. I've never been more impressed by the effect of a pedal on an amp than that. I actually bought a really nice distortion pedal to run in front of the clean channel, thinking that was the key to happiness for me. But on a whim, I decided to enhance it with a...

    Any good reason not to buy a USA Peavey Classic 30?

    As was already mentioned, the way they designed the "folded board using jumpers" was pretty asinine. I had one with issues there, which I had my tech fix and it's been solid since. My guitarist got the amp from me (for $250) and plays it weekly with great success. Sounds fantastic and when it...

    I honestly wrote off Digitech for years, believing (from the early 00s) that they were kinda chintzy. My dad has a multi-effect pedal from them which I thought was crap, compared to just about anything else I'd seen of its contemporaries. But the build quality and functionality of this pedal...

    Same here. Great delay, but just massive.

    Delay In Finding My Delay

    So @D_Malone definitely deserves a handshake from me because the Obscura was what I ended up with and I pretty much love it. It has all I could want and wasn't super expensive. The ability to "freak it out" is absolutely perfect and I'm very happy with the purchase. Many people mentioned the...

    Tech 21 Trademark 60 FOOTSWITCH, I have questions (and need one)

    Right!? I totally see what you mean. I don't have any reason not to trust my current pedal, it's just fine, but having a $50 "insurance policy" to keep all of the foot functions working for basically my natural life seems NOT crazy.

    Sometimes I think pedals need to be classified in the same level as some narcotics, because the addiction is kinda nutty! I did decide to give the Dual Tap a whirl. And frankly, that is a very capable delay. Well, 2 of them, actually. You can run 2 separate and distinct setups, you can double...

    Don't all answer at once LOLZ! (I'm guessing since there isn't a ton on this pedal to begin with, it's not very popular. Not bad per se, but not widely used) Seriously though, the list of recommendations here has seeped into my head and now I'm basically second-guessing all of what I was...

    I feel like digital is the way to go for me, personally. The analog emulation on most of the digital pedals seems just fine for my level of usage. And I do like the clarity that true digital can afford me. So with all of this said, the leading real contender for me to try out soon is the Visual...

    There's some fine tastes here, for sure! And the Demedash looks really cool. The fact that the video demo I check out first has a dude doing a rendition of the Ghostbusters theme (to tie into the kind of worn out video cassette I would have actually had as a yout') is almost some kind of sign...

    I mean, yeah, that Dig is pretty darn sweet. And compared to some of the others, pushing the $200 level isn't terribly bad. Perhaps part of my reluctance to go much higher on the prices though, is being able to get features that work well for me in pedals that cost less, though they may be...

    Delay In Finding My Delay

    Hey, I had fun with the TC, but it essentially was more knob twiddling than I wanted. I never used the looper and was always a little shaky on what the MASH did in various modes. The crystal mode was awesome, I loved that. And yeah, getting the TonePrints were always pretty effective. But we...

    Delay In Finding My Delay

    So in essence, I don't actually do anything "important" with my guitar playing at the moment, as I'm primarily a bassist. But I've been enjoying learning more on guitar for my own personal satisfaction. On occasion, friends have me record some stuff for their experimental music projects, so I...

    Random tip of the day.

    Good tip for sure, but I gotta add a little extra tip to that: If you have a serial number badge on the back, don't allow even painters tape to make contact with that. Put a piece of tape backwards over that area on the tape so it avoids sticky contact with the serial. When you do peel off the...

    That is an option, and I can try before buying on that one. I do love some Boss pedals in general, it's half my board already.

    Yeah, that looks pretty sweet, but about double my budget at this point. I was stretching it when I got the MXR CCD, in all honesty.

    DIY B-Bender on a Baritone

    I saw that backstop and that was great. We called those "suicide levers" back then. (To those who don't know, they were the extra lever on an old-school 10 speed road bike so you could brake from the top of the bar)

    Keeley is cool for what it does, but I'm after more space, longer time. The Strymon looks awesome, but yeah, I'm probably a few more pedals away from that being on my radar.

    AWESOME! As a former bike mechanic and constant lover of wacky engineering, I fully enjoy what you did there. I may have to copy that move down the line. But it's genius, nice job!

    I've been getting a little obsessed with guitar stuff over the past year and while I've found numerous guitars I like and narrowed down an amp search to one that I finally jive with, my last piece of the puzzle seems to be a delay pedal. Yet this seems like a bit of a challenge for me. - Used...

    MIM Squire with an off-center locking nut. QC?

    I was working on an Ibanez from about the same era and the guy wanted all of the trem/locking nut replaced. Well, the new setup didn't line up at all, as it was going from MIK Ibanez parts to MIJ Gotoh parts. The new locking nut actually used screws to mount from the top now, too, so the rear...

    Show us your Pedal board.

    Still a work in progress: EQ is en route, still need to find a new delay, may have to extend the board itself.
