Hey all, Once upon a time I bought a modeller pedal. It was top of the line at the time. I enjoyed playing with it and all the stuff it could do was cool but at the end of the day it just wasn't me. Fast forward to today and I am slogging all this gear to an open air show at the Zoo. The August heat, a 6 hour commitment, upbeat music, working the audience....then hauling that stuff all the way to the car... I was toast. I need a light weight solution. At least for gigs like this. I don't plan on tossing my beloved tube amps but I need a lighter setup. So this is what I have done... I bought a Quilter Toneblock 202 and the Blockdock CB12. Its in the mail. I'm hoping I won't hate it. I also picked up an Ibanez S Series guitar. It was on the island of forgotten guitars at GC. It looked so sad and forlorn like an abandoned puppy, I couldn't resist. I cleaned it up, new strings, and I'm actually loving it! It must weight about 5lbs and plays good and sounds great. Now I just need to figure out what to put in between, pedals, a Pod Go, a fly rig...etc. The thing that really got me thinking of solid state was demoing a Master Series Twin with a Walrus Ages in front of it and it sounded absolutely killer. I would have bought it if the amp box wasn't so big. If they had a 1 channel version, same wattage, 1x12, it would have gone home with me. I'm hoping the Quilter stuff will be good... maybe I'll even like it, maybe, just maybe, I will even love it! Stranger things have happened.
