    EH Small Stone vs. Boss Phase Shifter

    If you want to get that Gilmourish sound, Small Stone... hands down. It is the best phaser that I have used. I used to work at Guitar Center and I have played on both the BOSS and the Small Stone and I ended up with the Small Stone on my board. It has an incredible sound. It's like buttah...

    Vintage Thomas Int. Corp. Wah Question

    I just went to a vintage guitar shop around the corner just to see what they had. Usually good stuff but today was a good day... 2002 PRS Custom 22, 1968 Fender Showman head (Silverface) with cab, and this... a Thomas International Corporation Cry Baby wah. When I walked in, I wasn't going to...

    Looking for that sweet vintage sound

    Hey everyone, I'm in need of the sweetest vintage tone I can get out of a Les Paul. All I want to do is a new set of humbuckers... Preferably Seymour Duncan's. If anyone has any suggestions on what p/u's to get, I would like to know what they are. Thanks.

    Carbon Copy delay

    I'll just say that the Guitar Center in Jackson, MS finally got one and I want to get one also so I decided to plug in and try it. It is awesome. Great analog delay and the "mod" button makes a huge difference when engaged. It's a great pedal and as soon as I get the money, that's the first...

    The ultimate fuzz face?

    You know, I never did really thinik about that. I have doing a lot of looking and youtube watching and whatnot and really ended up liking the '69 a lot. It's really full. I saw a pedal though that as of yet (I'm only on page 2 of 4 on the post) has not been mentioned... the MI Audio G.I...

    The ultimate fuzz face?

    Have you checked out the Fulltone '70? It's got a real nice fuzz to it. It's meaty and everything that I know I dig in a fuzz. Check it out if you haven't yet.

    Weber Speakers vs. Celestion Speakers

    I'm looking at buying a new amp (Fender Twin Reverb) and am looking at getting rid of the Fender speakers and getting some new ones. I've heard good things about too many speakers; Tone Tubby, Celestion, Weber, Eminence and so on and so on. Anyways, Weber and Celestion are the top 2 for...

    Gilmour Tone !!!!

    The Gilmour tone is hard to get but I think your best bet is to get a vintage Big Muff Pi for the distorion through Hiwatt heads and cabs. If you want that classic phase from Darkside of the Moon, I found that the EH Small Stone with the color switch on and the dial at about 10 or so grabs that...

    Trifecta Sounds Good But Slightly Woofy

    Hey byrdman, how many different fuzzes have you tried? I was looking at getting the Trifecta among others (Voodoo Labs Superfuzz and EH Big Muff). Does it capture that late 60's/ early 70's feel? I like the tone of Gilmour and Hendrix. Gilmour still uses a Big Muff and Jimi used a prototype of...

    Any good true bypass delay pedals?

    Does anyone know of any good true bypass delay pedals? The only brand that I'm really looking at is the Electro- Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man but, unfortunately, it's 300 or so odd numbered dollars and that's a little much for a delay... even though it is built the typical (and awesome) over the...

    Which Dr. Z amp do you have Ken? I'm looking at getting a Dr. Z amp. I'm really interested in the MAZ 38 Sr. "NR" and the Z-28. I have read a lot of good things about these amps but have yet to play one. Are you pretty satisfied with it. I'm also getting a few more pedals (Barber Trifecta or...
