    What a long, strange (expensive) trip it's been

    Filled in with a friends band last night and used my trusty Budda SD30 combo I bought 10 years ago used. It sounded great! Driving home I got to thinking about how many amps I've bought and sold since buying the Budda. I've puchased amps that cost 5x what the Budda cost me and I always seem to...

    Fuchs Full House 50

    I've had the Full House head for a few years now. Versatile describes it well. The clean channel is really good and if you play somewhere you open it up....WOW. The drive channel offers a ton of options with the tone control from D type tones to Marshall. It's one of those amps that the more you...

    Reverb is ending reverb bucks

    I'm going to miss this function and I'll probably wind up buying less gear from them. It was nice having a little "stash" separate from the bank account to buy and sell with. I'm going to try to set up a deposit to my Paypal account through the debit card. I really don't want the money going...

    Whose music career will end because of coronavirus?

    Exactly. I think this will be the bigger problem for gigging musicians.

    String gauges 9 - 42 & 10 - 46

    I prefer 9's these days. Just easier for me to bend. I do use 10's on the guitars I play slide on. I don't have the lightest touch so I find 10's easier for slide.

    All this talk about strings... WHAT ABOUT 9.5s DUDE

    I've used 9.5's on my PRS for a couple years. Going back to 9's. Just not my cup of tea.

    Seiko 5 Sports celebrates a legendary guitar, Brian May’s ‘‘Red Specia

    Not bad looking at all. A little pricey but I'm sure there will be some deals after the initial release. https://www.seikowatches.com/us-en/news/20200123-64494105459

    Zinky Velvet Head/Cab or Combo?

    I've got a Zinky 1x12 combo that I've used for years. Never played the head so I can't comment on that. This amp will keep up with ANY drummer I've played with.....and I know a few who like to hit 'em pretty hard. I've plugged a bunch of guitars in and they all sound good.

    Changing Strings While Performing

    I once saw Carl Weathersby change a string mid-song. Kept right on playing as he re-strung it. Truly amazing. It was a trio so he didn't have anyone else to fill in the space. Sustained a few notes, sang some and never missed a beat!
