In 2021 I bought:

1998 Bogner 101B
1994 Laney GH100S
2015 Metropoulos Metroplex
1976 Gibson LPC Cherry Burst
1984 Gibson LPC Tobacco Burst

I sold:
1971 1992 Marshall Superbass All original
2012 Fender Select
TC 2240 Parametric EQ

Life got in the way and I only sold the Marshall for vet bills at the time. It let me save up for the metroplex afterwards so it’s not a complete wash but that 71 was nice.

The fender Strat I sold to help fund the 84 Norlin LPC. I wish I could have kept it but I never honestly played it anymore - the gibsons get all of the attention.

The 2240 needed restoration and I imported it from Japan. I knew I wasn’t going to get around to restoring it so I sold it.

I bought a Player’s HSS Strat and a JJ Jr.



Bought and sold a bunch of pedals. Went kinda heavy on the Tonebenders this year, only to find out they’re not really my thing. Only kept a VH4 pedal and a Static Effectors custom fuzz.

I sold all my 100 watt heads, and bought their 13 watt counterparts after I read a book on recording home guitar online.
Why did you go through the trouble of that?? You should just follow the expertise of Fluff, throw an instance of Oeksound Soothe on all of your guitar tracks and be done with it!

Good taste with the Kelley and Naylor! The Kelley really is something exceptional. I've tried once my '80 Kelley next to a real '70's Dumble

What is a Bogner BE100? Never heard of that model? Thought you meant Friedman for a second lol

Lol. I did mean Friedman. Misspeak (mistype?) Been a long week at work.

Still getting to know the Kelley. How do you set yours up? What speaker cab? Mine's an 80, too.

With the Kelley, imo the magic really starts when the volume is at least 3 ‘o clock, but preferably maxed out for one of the most beautiful, melodic lead tones out there. I have everything but the put the bass knob pulled out. I either had the treble turned slightly up past noon and bass a little below, but gotta check. Maybe I had it reversed with those 2 knobs lol. Hard imo to dial a bad sound in it. I like its cleans too, but feel my ‘64 Vibroverb outdoes it there, so really just use it for its overdriven tones (which are glorious) mostly suited imo for leads and single note stuff. I used it with my Kerry Wright 412. Not sure yet which speakers are optimal, but definitely loves the ‘60’s Alnico Blues (but those are the best speakers ever made imo, so what amp doesn’t) and Fane Crescendo’s. I will say I don’t like boosts or pedals in general with it. Not even my original silver Klon. I just run it by itself

Honestly I feel the Naylor blows the doors off of any Friedman’s, but that’s just me. It’s kinda how I hoped those or the Bogner’s were gonna sound like. Dark, but still aggressive and cutting, not polite or boring like those amps often are

Soothe is the REALLLLL secret bro. Nothin like a plugin that completely neuters your tone and makes it the safest sound on earth, that’s my next big adventure. 13 watt amps and soothe: a winning combination for modern home guitar recording.

Why did you let the power cab go? Why sell the EVH?
