    Gigging Guitarist vs. Bedroom Guitarist

    Gig three nights a week, rehearse with two separate bands one night each a week and practice at home two hours every day with a metronome. Started collecting my Social Security (62) about ten months ago. That and the money I make gigging is my sole income. Best job I ever had.

    Vibrato Pedal (VB2-esque)

    I've been using the Behringer Ultra Vibrato UV300 for over a year with no problems.

    NPD: Aluminum Falcon

    I agree. I play a Tele into a '66 non-reverb Deluxe and the AF1 gives me plenty of bass. I can't imagine needing more. Took 4 months from ordering to delivery but it's a great sounding pedal and was worth the wait. Hopefully he comes through for everybody who is waiting on theirs.

    Why no love for Senn around here?

    My two main guitars are a Senn Pomona and a Fullerton. Great builder.

    So, I picked up the Squier J Mascis Jazzmaster today.

    How much does the J Mascis JM weigh?

    Aluminum Falcon, any updates?

    My Aluminum Falcon was delivered yesterday. Yes the wait was longer than expected and communication was sparse and I did some grumbling but I sat in with some friends on a gig last night using the AF a Tele and a Princeton Reverb and it sounded great. Big and fat. All the grumblings been forgotten.

    Guitar Pedals in Tampa, FL

    I can never find anything that I want at the Sarasota GC. Very nice new store but their selection of gear isn't so great. YMMV. Be sure to check out Skippers Smokehouse for music and pretty good grub in a funky environment while you're in Tampa. www.skipperssmokehouse.com

    Vox Pathfinder 15r - stock speaker or not?

    I picked up a mint condition Pathfinder on CL last year for $50. I think the stock speaker sounds good and have no desire to "upgrade".

    1964 Fender Deluxe (Non-Reverb)

    I have a '66 non-reverb Deluxe that is my main gigging amp for the last 5 years or so. I paid $1000 for it with no speaker and some pretty bad tears in the tolex. Worth every penny. Great amp. Mine has an early Scumback Speaker from back when they were originally called Scumbag Speakers.

    Your settings for TS into a RAT

    Almost the same settings as Mr Limbic. Tele-TS9-'84 WF Rat-delay/reverb-'66 non-reverb Deluxe. TS-9. Gain at 0. Volume maxed and tone about 10:30 Rat. Gain at 9:00. Filter at 3:00 and volume at 3:00 The Deluxe is usually 4-6 on the volume. I generally only mic it when we're doing an outdoor gig.

    Digital Delay to match a DMM

    I have an Echopark on a small Gator board (6 pedals) and don't notice any noise issue using the Gator power supply. I think the Echopark is a great sounding low cost unit. I got mine new through Amazon several months ago for $79 shipped.

    6v6 for vintage Fender Deluxe Reverb

    KCA has matched pairs of NOS Marconi 6v6's in stock. They sound great in Fender amps. I use them in my '66 PR and non-reverb Deluxe. Looks like they also have a matched pair on RCA 6V6GT blackplates in stock for $175.

    Looking for a portable jazz amp!

    If money is no object I'd go with a Standel 25L15.
