    Who Makes the Actual Flattest Patch Cables in 2022?

    I would be careful about trying to cram too many pedals too closely together. While it certainly makes for a nice and tidy-looking pedalboard, in practice, having so much so close together can pose other problems. No one wants a huge and unwieldy board, but I'd personally rather have something...

    Tube Screamer with more adjustable EQ

    I was going to say the right side of the Duellist. It's like all the great parts of a Tubescreamer that also allows you to easily dial out all of the bad parts of a Tubescreamer that you don't like. Really great pedals.

    Tuner pedals you have owned which have been fabulous or Meh ?

    I've been a long-time Turbo Tuner user--like well more than a decade. While I generally like it, I do find myself sometimes getting frustrated with it, as it can be really difficult to dial in a perfectly accurate tuning. I find that it can take a really long time to get the dial to be...

    Looking for some advice on getting a bass.

    I've been playing guitar for about 35 years myself, and for the longest time I had a cheapo Ibanez bass that I used for home recording. About two years ago I finally decided to upgrade my bass and I got myself a G&L LB-100 Tribute model. It's pretty much a streamlined P bass, but the neck is a...

    Bass Help!

    Thanks. I've actually been keeping the guitar lower in the mix to better identify the pocket with the drummer. The problem is that by doing so I sometimes start to think more like a lead guitarist and venture off a bit. I need to think more like I'm supporting the song and providing a foundation.

    Bass Help!

    I am working on a solo album of original music where I'm looking to play all the instruments except the drums. I've played guitar for about 35 years, and I'm reasonably accomplished. I'm currently tracking bass parts for my record, and I'm struggling a bit, as I'm just not a great bassist. I...

    Single coils into Modded Marshalls

    That's sort of the nature of the JCM800. On mine, unless I have the gain dialed up all the way, the tone can get a little thin and even brighter. As others have suggested, an EQ pedal can really help. I've also had success with somewhat darker overdrive pedals. A Timmy is another good option...

    Just got a Little Big Muff :)

    Yes, very much so. Muffs are notoriously difficult to use in live band situations because your guitar will typically disappear in the mix even at high volumes. A common solution is to use a Muff in conjunction with an EQ pedal, or to simply get a Muff with an added mids control, like such:

    Who wears the trousers in your relationship with pedals - you or your power supply?

    I recently upgraded my power supply to a Cioks DC-10 Link because I needed a 24-volt outlet for my DMM XO. I have a couple of other higher-power digital pedals on my board as well, but the Cioks handles everything like a champ. I have a Cioks Adam on my mini pedalboard, as well as a DC-5 for...
