Re: New Amp Day: Orange Rocker 30

It passed the practice test, I ended up using my new Nobels ODR-mini as a gain boost for both channels. I was also testing out my new Strat, might have just been getting used to everything but I found myself controlling my sound with the guitar’s controls rather than pedal settings, which is probabl...

Re: New Amp Day: Orange Rocker 30

Yeah I was thinking of using an EQ pedal on the natural channel (first going to try my Nobels ODR-mini at practice later as a tone control/boost).

Re: New Amp Day: Orange Rocker 30

So no EQ on the "natural" channel at all? Nope! Sick! How does the "natural" channel sound? Bright and clean, on the edge of breakup but not quite. It likes neck single coils but humbuckers/hotter pickups in the bridge. I’ll have a better idea of levels after practice tonight, b...

New Amp Day: Orange Rocker 30

5 years ago I decided to buy an Orange, and in my budget at the time, I settled on an OR15. It was cool because it had an effects loop that I never used, and a 3 band EQ which the Tiny Terror didn't have. I still love the sound of that amp, but being single channel, it wasn't very practical in a liv...

Re: NGD - Squier VM Tele Custom project

Good score! I bought a cheapie set of white button tuners like that for my Telecaster, they might not be as smooth as the real Klusons on my Cyclone, but they work well enough and look nice. I'd say on par with the modern Squier tuners.

Re: Ngd: it’s a Strat!

How heavy is the body? Every bullet with a tremolo I've held was heavy as hell, my bullet was heavy as hell and it wasn't the tremolo that weighed a ton, I took it completely apart and it was the body itself. PIt was probably the second heaviest guitar I've owned after a les paul knock off. Every h...

Re: Ngd: it’s a Strat!

Dots: planning any upgrades?

All the upgrades: am I a joke to you?

(1986 MIJ neck w/Fender tuners, Kent Armstrong TVST62 pickups, CTS 250k pots and USA 5-way switch)

The bridge and body are the only non-upgraded parts left on the guitar.

Re: 1964 Mustang custom order Candy Apple Red, no documentation?

I’m no authority on Fender custom stuff but I don’t know that I’ve personally ever run across a custom color on a Mustang.

Also the color used on the Mustangs of the era was Dakota and not Fiesta red

Re: Jonzing for Squier '22 line

Not so sure. Squier made a “Competition Orange” affinity Tele a few years back, that looks to be the same color more than likely

Nah the stripe is all wrong and the color is off. So close, how is it this hard to mess up?

Re: Building a mini Kurdt pedalboard

Face it though; when we were kids, we wanted exactly what our heroes used because it was super inspiring and fun to use the same tools, not because they necessarily accurately recreated the sounds. Just looked at a 'DS-1 vs DS-2 mode I' comparison and the DS-2 sounds way less harsh, and doesn't hav...
