Re: A plug: Timbre!

This is all Eric Johnson’s fault. Dude thought his Fuzz Face sounded better without the baseplate screws and that certain pedals have to be cocked at a 45-degree angle and elevated an inch above his board on a block of wood, etc... don’t know if he ever cited a specific benefit to this, just that it...

Re: 2022 gear goals

The MASSIVE picture that Kim posted above, it looks like there are two output plates on the side. What's going on there? I think it's actually a powered line out. I don't know exactly how their wiring or controls work but I do know that those Wal pickups have a separate coil pair for each string. I...

Re: Broken-caster $549

The crack coming out of the bottom of the 12th fret slot looks like a pro repair or replacement neck situation. I bet a few of the strings choke out or buzz like crazy when you play below the 12th fret.

Re: Home guitar-time setups

You shouldn’t have show-stopping latency in this day and age if your software is configured correctly/computer isn’t a busted-ass Atari. Try different sample rates. I can use one of these into Ableton/GB/Logic without issue. I also have an M-Audio M-Track Quad but I usually only use that for USB-MID...

Re: Eq pedals

In my experience the little bit extra any Boss compact has over some cheap plastic pedal is not sounding like noise-interferencey dogshit on a pedalboard with a universal power supply. Having said that, literally none of my Boss pedals made it onto my last pedalboard, but 2 Behringers and a Dano Min...

There's not a discussion on Behringer compacts that goes by where I don't remember Hurb knocking one knobs-first off stuff going "c'mon, break, fuckin breaaaaak..." :lol:

Re: pictures of your guitars here

IIRC the Fender version had nutserts in the body and knurled screws holding the ashtray on? No way? Maybe on some US reissue. The old bass bridge covers had foam strips though, so they weren't just covers for looks/handrests but a mute system. They probably only started doing that on the Jazz after...

Re: Cooper FX is no more. But you can get the tone cheaply

Great vid. Not really even heard of the Cooper pedal but this made me want one of those Zooms and also prompted me to bust out my bitcrusher and ringmod solutions for the evening.

DM-2 I borrowed (stole) this one from a venue we once played. It seemed it was collecting dust at the office of the fat drunk venue manager, probably forgotten by a band years ago, so I thought I would put it to good use instead. Sold it for $$$ some weeks later. I guess this doesnt count in my ââ...
