I bought some DIY pedal kits and got around to assembling two of them. The first is a clone of the RAT ProCo distortion pedal. The second is a clone of the Ross Gray Compressor.

Really cool. I wish I didn't suck at soldering.

 A few weeks ago I got my self a new Gibson Hummingbird Pro. Musicians Friend had them marked down from $2100 to $1850, then traded in $450 old guitar and 10% off made it $1215. Its great!

I played my friend's father's Fylde acoustic recently and was blown away. Great guitars, anyone have any experience with them?

I forgot to say I went to Guitar Center and they matched the deal. This is what happens after a few drinks and you decide to post.

I've heard some rather nice things about build and sound but, I have never played or see one in person.

I am beginning to think that I like the sound of old strings on my les paul. When I was younger I would change strings every two weeks. To me ears now they sound too harsh. Anybody have comments on string age and tone?

When I was a kid and still today I change strings when they either break or my fingers start to bleed. Too much of a hassle restringing heavy gauge strings in standard tuning

Just bought a Fylde Magician (used) Lovely piece. Really stunning tone, and plays gorgeous.

I recall that the guitarist for the Doors liked old strings for their tone. I remember Stephen Stills saying that bass stings don't sound good until you rub BBQ sauce into them.

Thats exactly what i've heard. I'll have to look around and see if there are any near me to try out.

My latest pedal hot off the soldering iron - a TS808 tube screamer clone, except this one is MOSFET-driven. Choice of silicon diode clipping, MOSFET clipping, or no clipping; mids EQ swifch; independent MOSFET-based boost circuit with its own footswitch.

i'm guessing that's a BYOC build judging by the knob layout. is the middle pedal a BYOC big muff clone? edit: nm just saw your previous posts
