    New Cabs Day - People Like To Give Me Stuff

    I don't know why, but people like to give me stuff. Several years ago, I was given a 1967 Fender Bassman. A year or so after that, I was given a Peavey Mace 320T Combo. Just the other day, I was given these: - Boss Metal Zone (had one before, not a fan, but what the heck) - Hardwire DL-8...

    Any violin/fiddle players?

    Jumping back to the question that the OP asked... I'm relatively new at learning the violin also, have taking lessons for only 2 years (started when I was 59 years old), and am still struggling with my violin and bow hold. Some people say that when holding the violin, the instrument should be...

    Southern Rock Tone

    For Southern Rock, this is the pedal that I use...but, with Black Widows loaded, it's just a few ounces short of 100 lbs. But, to focus on pedals...your Katana should be able to do it just fine. Depending on the guitar that you're using, you can start with the Bass around 5-6, Treble around...

    Peavey amps

    I've only owned a couple of Peavey's so I won't be able to speak about many of the models, but I would caution you to stay away from Windsor. The price could be tempting because they usually go cheap. They're single channel, high gain, no clean and tend to be overbearing in the mid-range with...

    Peavey BackStage

    I know the thread is about the Backstage and references made to the Artist but this post gave me the desire to post a pic of my Mace 320T. 6x 6L6's.

    Best books to read

    Vintage issues of Playboy. But I keep getting distracted. But to keep in line with the topic, I just finished re-reading The Picture Of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde and am attempting to start on A Tale Of Two Cities again. I generally can't get past the first chapter but I'll try to muscle...

    When I was thirteen years old this was my dream car.

    I wanted one when I was 13 and bought one when I was 16. This pic was taken just before I took it in for new paint. When it was done, it was Burgundy with a new black vinyl top and chrome 5-spokes. If you're a Cougar fan, notice that it is the "GT" version. 1968 Mercury Cougar GT with a .390...

    NGD - Gretsch

    Definitely nothing else like it. I wouldn't mind trying out a G5220.

    NGD - Gretsch

    I think that's what I'll call her. But no...Electromatic G5420T. They had one in black also but the white kept calling me.

    NGD - Gretsch

    Yes, Filtertrons. I'm still getting used to them. Lower output than what I'm accustomed to. More knob tweaking on the amps and pedals to get where I want to drive to be. I've got a Blackstar HT-Boost sitting in the closet that I might drag out and run in line with it.

    Optical vs OTA

    It turns out that I do like it. I find that there is a narrow range of settings that I like, but I do like it.

    Optical vs OTA

    I received the new Dyna Comp a few days ago. I tried these settings, and many others, and ended up going back to this. Thanks for the tip!
