I am waiting on some new stuff for this thread to come soon from England.
I don't even pay attention to any of that shit anymore.
My Fenders (or my 335) + some Marshalls + maybe a few effects like a Big Muff or a little push, and my original Ibanez WH-10 wah = perfection.
Yeah, part of the reason is life takes over. I barely have the time to play anymore let alone keep up with amps and such. In high school I lived it, but now forget it. I recently sold so much stuff I had collecting dust in my parent's basement. Actually, I have been incredibly out of the loop in the music world all together. After college I can't tell you what new bands have popped up.
+1 on no time. My telecaster has a lot of dust on it now, and it's such a shame.
but so it goes.
So today this is happening. Historically accurate hand wound PAF replicas:
So I bought a new guitar yesterday, an Ibanez RG3EXFM1, just to mess around on (and it was only $200 so I'm not breaking the bank). Normally I play Fender Strats and Teles through a Vox AC15 with a Fulltone Full-Drive 2 to get some dirt. The Ibanez sounds okay through this set up but I think I want to buy another overdrive or distortion pedal to get a tighter and more singing lead tone. Any suggestions? I don't really have much time right now to go out and spend hours testing out pedals so I thought that I might ask for a few recommendations to help the process along. Thanks for the input.
These are gonna be nice.
Thinking about getting this. Trying to make up my mind.
That is neat but the price of a mini rectifier is simply absurd for what you're getting.
It's not really my style, but $1000 for a 25w, 2 channel, all tube head isn't too absurd.
I mean, I view a mini rectifier as a simple jam at home amp for the scenario where you are leaving your main rig at your band's practice space or you're just a casual jammer at home. To fill that role I'd just buy a small peavey or something for a lot less money. I mean, shit, you can get a 6505 2x12 combo for the same cost.
It depends on what kind of music you play. Honestly Analog Man's Beano Boost is the only kind of boost pedal I would ever consider using. I don't really like overdrive pedals that color your guitar's sound too much. I like just running the amp very loud and distorted and using the guitars volume and tone knobs to go clean.
We will see, I haven't played them yet.
I've never played this, but maybe look into a Suhr Riot?
This has been my downfall. Used to be able to repeat back any spec of any piece of anything in guitar center. Now I'm lucky if I can strum a bit on the weekends.
Dream setup though is still a late 60's 335 through a vintage VoxAC30.
Classic combo! The new handwired AC30's are awesome.
