    Creamback 65's vs Creamback Alnico's

    So I landed a set of Alnico's for short money. I wired them up tonight and did the A/B Test. I do like the Alnico's for sure as the nuances are a bit more balanced, and the highs are not as pronounced, but am honestly wondering if the extra money is really worth it? I still have to play in a...

    Brown Protein vs king tone duelist

    Hey guys. So, Iam on the Brown wait list but have recently also started being curious about the Duelist. Being that I play out of a JTM45 platform, sometimes pedals that kill it on a fender style platform, do not on a Marshall style. Does any one have any real world input or thoughts on these 2...

    GFI Specular reverb v3

    So I have tried so many verb pedals over the years. I just got this after hearing my friends. It is perfect! It sounds like real reverberation. Though I never owned a strymon product, all the others had something in the tone that was just not right for me. I have a lot of tweaking time to spend...

    Pedal board effects that are useful, no OD's please

    So I have re thought the whole pedal board thing over the last year. I have stream lined down to 3 OD's. I am now focusing on actual effects. I have phase, leslie, delay, mutron. Buying a specular reveb V3. what else is actually useable without being a novelty you use like once a year etc...

    New Zappa docu on youtube.

    Fantastic watch about the man and who he was. just barely scratching the surface of his body of work, but its focused on him and his career. Worth the 6.99.

    JHS Youtube reviews of amazon pedals

    Just watched the video and it was pretty cool to see his take on it. Not taking a side and trying to do an honest understanding and assessment of them and whether or not its good for the overall pedal business. Nice to see something like that in such a ploarized world we live in now.

    Logic 9 Issues with sierra 10.12.6

    Hey guys, so my Artinger I installed Klein PAF's and just love em. I have another brand single coil in the middle but the output is just too low. I love the Tone. Think Jerry Garcia's Tennessee Jed. It's got some nice midrange growl but remains clear. Soooo, I don't want to loose this tone and...

    So, I have used Kleins in different builds over time. Single coils, humbuckers etc. I recently swapped a set of P.A.F's in my main guitar for my set of Klein P.A.F's that I had kicking around in an Ibanez artcore. Like the rest of us, I am always listening and deciding whether I am happy with my...

    like the rest of y'all, I'm always poking around checking stuff out. Saw these on Stew Mac. Anyone ever use them? vids had some decent sounds. Just curious as they are dirt cheap in comparison.

    Ok, so I am curious. What is everyone using these days that still plays an amp? 1x12, 2x12, etc. I am partial to 2x12 for the tone I get. Love to use a 1x12" for ease of use and weight, but it just lacks so much dimension for me. Anybody?

    Anyone have any experience with this? I have watched some videos and like the what I hear. I currently use a jtm 45 based set up. Most vids seems to be using fender based amps. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

    Finally doing it!

    I have finally started downsizing my drive pedal collection. Listed 4 on reverb sold 2 already and got good money for them. Feels great! I realized I had to many options that basically were variations on each other. My pedal board has now been re-organized for effects. It's a wonderful thing. I...

    listing an item on reverb

    Has anyone noticed as soon as you list an item on reverb, there is immediately someone watching it? I listed 4 pedals today and all 4 had this as well as the "someone has it in there basket predicted to sell soon" thing. And yes, before this becomes another bashing content thread about fee's or...

    Humbucker Neck Pickup Orientation

    So over the years, most neck humbuckers via a Les paul, 335 etc, no matter who makes them and what the circuit layout, always have a bit too much bass to them for me. Height adjust, etc. so months ago on my les paul, I turned it around like Peter Greens. Problem solved! It became so balanced...
