    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.

    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
