    So is it against tgp rules...

    It's not illegal to take labels of mattresses. Seriously, read the labels more closely. Also, I have no problem with people stealing stuff. If there's a patent on it, sue them under patent law; if not, tough luck. It's just a matter of time until someone reverse engineers and...

    ceriatone overtone special demo/overview

    +1 on the lowering tone for bridge pickups. Having a separate tone control for the bridge is almost enough to make me abandon tonestylers...not quite though. I'm seriously considering hard wiring a low pass filter on my strat's bridge pup to do this and be more transparent to the "user."...

    Well, I played a rack setup today, and now I'm hooked. School me!

    I'm seriously considering collecting the stuff to build one. This is following the realization that no matter how much money I spend, I'll never be happy with just one amp. As a result, the AxeFx is a very serious consideration. Buddaman, is that digitech processor actually that good? I...

    Two Rock Jet Sig. 2x10

    Lots and lots of clips....with strats if possible. If I had the money, I'd own one, future financial concerns be damned. Unfortunately, that much more on my credit card would make my credit score go down even if I could make the payments. Present to myself when I get my PhD (assuming I...

    Anyone else dime their amp's EQ settings?

    I've done it with some amps/models. Dimming either just the mid or the treb/bass and turning the mids off on tweeds can sound cool. Why not dime them...if the sound sucks, it's not like an invasive mod.

    Opinions on early 90's JCM800's

    I played one and wasn't impressed, but that was just one. It was also at a guitar shop that thinks it's worth $2400, so I'm fairly sure they did something dumb to it like putting in el84s without changing the tube sockets or rebiasing. (disclaimer: yes, I know that's impossible; that's the joke).

    Best combo out there for the money....

    I don't think epiphone makes solid state amps anymore - guitar center's website leads me to believe they stopped everything but the valve series. Agreed. I have a VJ head, and it's going to last me until I buy a $1000+ amp, most likely. I finally figured out how to get a good clean tone...

    New Amp Modeller? PRS?

    Impressive video. Kinda. I remember when I worked at GC seeing a demo of an earlier version of that software (GTR2, I believe; could check based on the date) and it was impressive then. And we sold it to a lot of studio people, but we never did sell many to guitarists. I think the only...

    MXR Carbon Copy Delay Arrived!

    Right. I actually haven't opened it up to even check out the trimmers or put in a battery (1spot). I should probably do that, but I found a few settings I like, and I haven't really screwed with it. Which is weird, because that is NOT the way I normally work.

    ceriatone overtone special demo/overview

    Not bad. I'd still like to see more clips with a strat, but I'm seriously considering one of these amps towards the end of this year. I just really wish I'd get a chance to play one first.

    What tuner do you recommend?

    Planet Waves and Korg each make one that's cheap and true bypass if that's what you're looking for. Honestly, my favorite tuner so far is the Planet Waves hand-held pick-shaped LED Strobe tuner. It works amazingly well, though not as quickly as a normal pedal tuner. I'd trust it over a...

    MXR Carbon Copy Delay Arrived!

    Maybe I'm the only one, but I certainly like it better with the mod on. Never turned it off save the first day I got it. If it were any deeper, I would be looking for a mod to make it like it is. I guess I'm just weir.d

    Anyone here MUST run multiple amps together to achieve your tone?

    Agreed. On a budget, I run an Epi VJ next to a H&K practice amp w/ reverb, and it sounds a lot better together. I can get almost all the way there with a delay pedal instead of the second amp, but then I think about replacing the VJ with a nice marshall-y amp and the H&K with something...

    Cables - Does big bucks for a cable make a difference?

    I think getting good cable is worth doing. But, you don't have to spend that much. George L, Bill Lawrence, Canare, and Mogami all make good cables for not much money. Buy 100' or so and a handful of connectors (Canare F-16s and several Switchcraft models work). I've been using handmade...

    Best Instrument Cable (Guitar)

    I use Canare GS-6 with F-15 (or 16, can't remember) connectors before my first "almost always on" buffer. It sounds about like George Ls through my stuff to me but the cable behaves better and none of that solderless BS. If you have a lot of GL cable lying around, you can always just learn to...
