    Blackback Advice

    My Blackbacks are definitely a little more sizzle/sparkly than my Creambacks or Greenbacks and also a tiny bit fuller bass. And a tiny bit less "Greenback crunch" to the mids. All 70s G12M 75hz. I have 3 of each so I use the BBs to fill the empty spots for one full stack.. They might add a tiny...

    How Old are Ya Guys?

    My first show was 1976 at 12yo and people were passing who knows what around. I was tripping for Frank Marino and throwing up for much of Foreigner and then getting ripped again for Ted Nugent. :ROFLMAO:

    Warnings/Bans/Consistency

    False alarm. Apparently they don't like the IP address at IBIS Hotel in Amsterdam. But I was non-bant if I was "having coffee". 😎

    Schenker's place in the guitar god hierarchy

    I've heard that. But I thought he also said "I'd like to be the best guitar player in this chair." In any case, it might be a numbers game. Jimi influenced a smaller base of young wannabes...Eddie had a much bigger base to influence. And consider the musical landscape between the two. Jimi was...

    Schenker's place in the guitar god hierarchy

    Earlier I said I thought EVH was most influential but I'm not saying he was the best. He himself knew he could not top Holdsworth but Holdsworth is not an easy listen for most people. EVH is. He just had that 'something else'. Whether it was his unique timing or just the way he attacked the...

    Warnings/Bans/Consistency

    Apparently I just got banned. No idea why. Just says my IP is banned.

    Shipping problems are out of control

    So I got a free hotel night and almost 24-hours in Amsterdam. I am not disappointed.

    Shipping problems are out of control

    It's crazy how things have gotten so fucked up. I'm in a 2-day long line at an airport trying to get a rebook due to delayed flight. Same thing happened on my flight here. All kinds of lost luggage with my coworkers. Zero chance I was checking a bag.

    Who is using buffers on their pedalboard?

    I use a Boss tuner and put it last on my board for the run back to the amp. I agree with try it and decide. I have quite a few pedals on my board and don't need a dedicated buffer in front of and after the board. Just try a super short cable as your base and then compare with your full length...

    Schenker's place in the guitar god hierarchy

    I was a UFO fan but right before 1978 (i.e. VH1) I was always wanting someone to take it to the next level regarding more aggressive distortion and to just let loose...grip it and rip it. Eddie did all that to a degree that it was a "wow" moment when you first heard it. If you weren't there, and...

    Alesis Quadraverb Plus Upgrade

    The Q20 can run a bunch of effects but at some point the memory can't add more. And it depends on which effects you use because some are more demanding than others.

    new Ozzy...

    JB? I could have played that...after beers. And the tone sucked hard. I tried to like it but this is just stank cheese. Nice manicure tho?

    Roe vs. Wade Overturned

    Prior to this I thought we 100% have a new POTUS in 2024. Just too many fuck ups. But now there is a tiny chance we don't. Big mistake..and ultimately all for naught.

    New Fortin TS808

    Sounds like Jose type clipping...maybe very different values but it seems like it would sound similar. But if you run the Drive on 0 then that is out of circuit. There was a recent thread where it was discussed why there are so many $$ TS variants but not a lot of SD-1 variants. And the notion...

    Alesis Quadraverb Plus Upgrade

    Is the Q20 basically the same as the Quadreverb? I've had one since the late 90s (I think) but I mothballed it for years after gigging only to revive it fairly recently for the Load Box rig.

    This place should be more popular.

    There would have been a page of dumbass "mojo sent/et al" posts before a reasonable response. And the whole thread would quickly be buried by "your least/most favorite butterfly" threads. Generally if I want to talk gear, it's here. The fact that there is some knowledge there and it has an...
