Hey, right now I play a fender '72 telecaster through an orange bass amp and loads of pedals. I'm thinking about getting a new amp and can't choose between the fender supersonic 22, hot rod deluxe, or Dr. Z m12. I am mostly a pedal player who likes slightly overdriven tone with a lot of delay for indie rock type stuff. Which amp would you recommend?
If you mostly play clean and want something that’ll add just a little dirt in your tone you should go with the Hot Rod. The Supersonic seems like it’s meant to be used with a bunch of fuzz in conjuction with it’s naturally high levels of saturated gain, and the Dr. Z M12 is kinda just a really great clean tone and will only break up slightly if you turn that shit all the way up.
I own a Digitech Hardwire HT-2 Tuner, Digitech Bad Monkey, ProCo Deucetone RAT, Boss CE-5 Chorus Ensemble, Electro Harmonix Memory Boy, Danelectro Reel Echo and a Boss RV-3 Reverb/Delay. I use them in that order, but I've been thinking of switching the order of the Bad Monkey and the Deucetone RAT as well as the Boss RV-3 and the Reel Echo. What would you suggest?
Alright so first things first, throw away the bad monkey and get like a real ass overdrive. The order you have em in currently is totally fine. I personally like to put overdrive pedals after fuzz pedals so you get a thicker fuzz sound. Also get a better chorus pedal.
After 3 years “Love & Taxidermy” is finally finished. We are asking for your support to get this thing out there in physical and digital form.

I have a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and I want another amp to play with two amps. What amp do you think that would combine with the sound of my Hot Rod? I play New-wave, Postpunk
the hot rod deluxe does niether sound particularly well as its really a blues/garage sounding amp, but its okay because they retain value. See if you can pick up a mesa boogie. it has the smooth cleans and angry dirty channels that those two styles really demand. one combo mesa should be fine. speaking with bobby though he suggests the AC30 or fender twin.
could you guys recommend a cheap pitch shifting pedal for adding bass to demos with a guitar? I'd rather buy something than lug my bass to/from my studio. thanks!
what is your interpretation of cheap? the EHX octave multiplexer is the way to go if youre looking for anything under 30 but is never recommended. whammy 4 turn up for 80 quite frequently which is really an investment since it doesnt a myriad of other useful things. if you can find a mini pog then thats also sweet but the cheapest ive seen em is 110 ish
Hey, i've been thinking about getting a chorus and a flanger, and i thought about the EHX Electric mistress, and a Small Clone, but then a friend told me about the EHX Polychorus. Which one should I get?
I have owned a small clone and to date its my favorite pedal period. The other guys on here might not agree with me but i always thought the EVH flange to be pretty cool. thats if you have the resources to get your hands on one. If you have a budget the small clone is still pretty affordable and the BOSS entry level flange isnt so tragic for 40 dollars. hope this helped.
I'm trying to design my board but I need help making some decisions. First, do you guys think that I could get away with using 2 analog delays without tap tempo or anything fancy? I would need to get a dotted eighth sound but I'd be using a Malekko 616 and a Deluxe Memory Man XO with the DMM set up for dotted eighth. Or should I get something with a tap tempo? Second, do you guys think I should be taking the minimalistic approach when it comes to the amount of pedals I actually have on my board?
This all depends on what kind of music you play as well as your personal preferences when setting up your rig in the home/studio/live. i have owned the memory man xo and the memory boy deluxe at different times and its just much easier to have something with a dotted function. makes adjusting settings mid set completely simple.
Well the x4 Flashback is better on paper, but at this point you can buy 3 DL4’s on craigslist for the price of one x4 Flashback. So if you got money to blow go for a the Flashback. It’s a truly amazing piece of equipment, but if you don’t regularly shit money just go for the DL4. It’s a solid pedal, it won’t let you down.
Would you guys go for a vox ac15 or a fender hot rod 15 watt? I play mostly post rock and some indie stuff.
It kinda depends on what kinda sound you like. If you want a brighter, chime like clean, and a saturated distortion go for the Vox. If you want a smoother, twangier clean and a gritty distortion go for the Fender. I’m not gonna be able to declare a winner in the never ending UK sound vs. US sound battle. You just gotta go with what sounds good to you.
Hey is there such thing as an adapter from the normal 9v dc current pedal powers into the older style 100ma pedal power inputs? cause i've got a big muff and a small clone and don't want to buy another power supply or batteries any more. (if there is could you send me a link to where i could get some)
Progress Report - The album comes out in 15 days. Starting to put the finishing touches. I’ve put way more work into this than anything I’ve ever done and I’m really excited for everyone to hear it. Also working on the live set… I’ll be doin a late album release show on November 10. Click the link above for details.
Thinking of purchasing a EHX Cathedral Stereo Reverb? Pros/cons? How does it compare to the digital reverb of the Boss RV-5?
EHX has pretty much always done a great job with reverb stuff. Also, I don’t know why everybody keeps talking about the RV-5, the RV-3 is so much better. Of course there are various levels of good pedals so if you’re trying to be ballin’ out of control with your reverb then go for the Eventide Space and just make all of your friends hate you (we all hate you Richard, eat a dick).
Sup guys, I've been looking at getting some new fuzz, obviously big muff would be my first choice but I've seen a couple zvex fuzz factorys about for like £100. Would you still reccommend the big muff over this? If so, which muff? Also which analog delay would you reccommend for someone who likes simple pedals?
You know what? I’ve been using the Mastotron for a while now and it’s really fucking good. I’ts a solid fucking fuzz pedal that stacks really, really well with pretty much anything. It even let’s you adjust the level of subs you want on it. As for an analog delay; I’m always gonna recommend the Malekko Ekko 616.
Hey, I was wondering what order you guys would suggest for my pedals. EH Metal Muff, Boss Blues Driver, Whammy, Crybaby Wah, MXR Carbon Copy, MXR EVH Phase, Boss Chorus Ensemble, and ISP Decimator Noise Reduction
Amp > Decimator > Carbon Copy > EVH Phase > Boss Chorus > Blues Driver > Metal Muff > Cry Baby > Whammy > Guitar
