Any experience with Boss BD-2 mods such as Analogman, Keeley, or Monte Allums? No particular sound, rig, or goal in mind other than just wanting to try one out because they're cheap but can't decide which route to take.
They’re okay, I don’t know why you wouldn’t just spend your money on a fulltone fulldrive MOSFET.
just bought a Roland RE-201 Space Echo on eBay. cheaper than normal because the reverb doesn't work. other than that the guy had it fully serviced and the delay is perfect. is the reverb going to be difficult/expensive to repair? or is that a "how long is a piece of string?" kinda question?
Sorry without knowing the complete extent of the damage I wouldn’t know.check out fxdoctor.com he might be able to help you.
I've been looking into getting either a Fender Super or Twin Reverb (either a reissue or an original), and I was wondering about how these amps would react to my pedals. I've heard the Super doesn't have much headroom, but the Twin can stay clean as loud as you want. Which would you suggest for a pedalboard that's basically just Drive, Fuzz, Delay, Tremolo, and Reverb? Would the Twin be the better bet simply for the great clean tone?
Twins do stay clean but they have to be cranked the fuck up before they break up well. They’re really only ideal for shows and nothing else. Your board sounds to be about the same as anyone’s so your options should be wide. Take a look at the fender super sonic or the vox ac15.
Looking for a reverb with presets, and a nice spring sound. But I also want to be able to have a nice hall sound. Plus I want nearly complete control of the sound. I've been looking at the EHX Cathedral reverb. But I really like the disscontinued EHX Holiest Grail. Thoughts?
the tc electronic hall of fame is exactly what youre describing. stay tuned for a GEARWHORE exclusive demo of the hall of fame.
i have a potentially really stupid question. I play guitar in a 2 man sludge band with a drummer, a friend recently suggested i get an Electro Harmonix Pog for a fuller sound, (with my budget, it'd probably be a Micro) so would i run the wet output from the pog through my pedals and into my guitar amp and then run the clean output through a bass amp or would i just use the one amp?
i dont think the micro is actually stereo, and if you had it running all the time it might sound a little bit overbearing. the EHX octave multiplexer is a monophonic version of the POG for drastically less, i used to be in a two piece as well with a drummer and me on guitar i would use that when i needed a full sound during really black keys esque riffs and such. just a suggestion, hope i was able to help.
Hey guys, for a clean blues to 80's hardrock (gainwise) type of guy, would you go for a Blackstar Ht-50 of an Orange Dual Terror? And wich speakers, for a 2x12 would match up with the chosen head? ps: hope this is not just for pedals!
I would go egnator tweaker combo. Im not kidding it’s such an awesome amp. It does gain so incredibly and the dual channel makes it really versatile. Especially since it comes with a footswitch.
correction... THERE IS ONE PEDAL BY BEHRINGER WORTH BUYING.... the Slow Motion, a whopping $15 and its damn cool and fun! this is coming from a kid who's life is based off gear and good tone. trust me, its cool.
Bobby sure pissed off a lot of people with that comment about behringer. Sorry but i agree, their stuff is all terrible. You get what you pay for.
What's your opinion on the Tech 21 XXL? I'm looking for a thick distortion for a reasonable price, I've already got a big muff and I want something a little more versatile but still thick and powerful.
Check out the wave cannon. It’s seriously seriously sick and versatile. The mad professor mighty red distortion also super thick and awesome.
You've convinced me of the way of the Big Muff so I've decided to invest. Is the Tone Wicker any good? The tone I generally go for has a lot of treble so I was thinking it might be better for that. Any suggestions of which model to get?
We’ve answered this particular question about the tone wicker several times before if you go through our archives.
