    do you suggest the solderless patch cable?

    I’ve tried several different kits. George L and a couple different Lava options, but have settled on the EVO Solderless cables from Disaster Area Designs. They’re great!

    What Guitar Picks do you Really Like?

    I have a trio of Blue Chip Jazz Lg picks in different thicknesses that I use the most. I also have a few Gravity 1.5 and 2mm Stealth and Sunrise Big Minis that I like. For acoustic, it’s Dunlop Tortex .60mm most of the time. I like the Black Jazz 3 shape.

    US Patent #US6459023B1 Expires 2021-01-26

    Cheers to @whoismarykelly, @jm9239 and @Reyybarra for offering some common sense in this bizarro thread. Pedaltrain solved a need in the industry and was awarded a patent for it — god forbid they protect it. And in a world where $300 drives and $800 reverb pedals reign supreme, a...

    Interesting take. I'd like to dialogue about this a little more, so shoot me a PM once you're able... or you can email through the blog site.

    New Interview with Tom Cram from Spiral Electric!

    I tried PMing, but your inbox is full. Can you provide some context on a) why Ideascale "is an actual fail" and b) how including it in that article compromises my journalistic integrity?
