• Supporting Membership Changes

    The Supporting Memberships are currently being updated moving forward.

    In order to coordinate giveaway drawings to the Supporting Members there will be a new alignment in the naming of the tiers. (Note: Non-Supporting (Basic) and Monthly Supporting Members can get into the drawings by mailing a postcard. Details on that will follow with a giveaway starting soon).

    The pricing for each Supporting Membership level remains the same though the naming of them will change. The privileges remain the same as current but with the new name. If you are a current Supporting Member, you will be upgraded automatically for the existing term of your Supporting Membership. We are introducing a new tier with new perks.

    • A new level will be created - Double Platinum Supporting Members

    All memberships will now have the option to remain as non-recurring memberships or choose reccuring memberships moving forward. *Note: current memberships will NOT be changed to recurring memberships.

    Finding "the one" in-person vs "Buying a guitar online and adapating to it"

    My three favorite electrics were all purchased online. My mid-90s Les Paul Studio: Always felt great but sonically was a mess, too hot, congested, muddy, etc. 8 years ago or so, I put a lower output pickup in bridge position, and installed 500k pots and wired with 50s wiring. Absolute tone...

    Is there a pedal out there that you've always wanted, but couldn't bring yourself to spend for?

    Butler Tube Driver I’m not sure why I never ponied up for one when I’ve made more impulsive and expensive buys. I think I’ve always had this expectation that the TD should be “the one” but I actually know it will most likely be just another drive. I want to keep that dream alive, haha. Someday

    To the "tone is in the fingers" people: stop responding to gear related questions please.

    It’s very obvious to me that technique is what a player emotes/expresses through their playing. The way they strike the strings and their phrasing and note choices are what gives certain players a recognizable sound. I could blindfold up and tell you who’s playing among a handful of popular...

    What pick are you currently digging? Herco Flex 75 Heavy here. :)

    I use a lot of picks, surprising how different that can feel, sound and make you play. My recent favorites - full size Dunlop Primetone .73 for chording and all around playing. Great sounding pick like the old Tortex I used to play but brighter. Standard Jazz III and Gravity picks 003 XL for...

    Delay Pedal: To Fatten Up Your Tone

    The Carbon Copy is the delay for fattening while staying out of the way. It’s almost like a verb when set up conservatively. It adds a bit of space and sounds great without taking the focus off what you’re playing.

    the strat is a terrible beginner guitar

    My first electric was a Squier strat and it was just fine. I can’t imagine that anything different would’ve been more or less affective. It’s all about the desire to learn and hard work at the beginning. Every instrument has nuances and quirks.

    What are the earliest pedals you bought and still kept???

    All of the effects I got early on were sold or traded long ago. The one that really burns me is the Ibanez AD-230 I got rid of. Currently, my Eternity and Carbon Copy have been around the longest, since 08-09.

    What is an aesthetic deal breaker for you on guitars?

    Dual humbucker guitars with pickups too close together. Just looks wrong

    Got myself on the KOT wait list...

    I usually like boosting into higher gain drives as well but sometimes I prefer the opposite, such as a low-medium gain drive into an EP booster to increase volume and fatten the signal. I have the external toggle on Red on my KOT so I run it two ways: Red set to distortion mode with gain maxed...

    If you were offered a bar gig, would you take it?

    Right now, probably not. My band used to play a lot of casino gigs and the smoke got to me by the end of the night (I quit in 2005) so that was always the worst part. Add in the current COVID stuff and nah, not worth it for me right now.
