    Size does matter - RE: your band banner

    What size band banner are you guys using? Doing some looking on the internet and getting a lot of different suggestions - venues will range from rock clubs to outdoor festivals. Think an 8x10 is sufficient?

    Fake Sales : /

    So I won't mention any company names...but I've had my eye on a boutique amp from a specific company for some time now, but haven't pulled the trigger. Today on their facebook page I get an add - use a code and get 15% off! So I go to their site to check out the deal, and low and behold, the...

    Bleed through from disengaged pedal?

    Just wondering if anybody has had a similar issue and can advise of cause. (I won't mention the specific pedal out of respect for the manufacturer - no need to generate any negative press for something isolated to my unit / situation.) I have a rotary speaker pedal on my board, and when the...

    That moment when your child wants to play guitar....

    So i just had to share this moment with people that would understand... I'm the father of 2 sons. Oldest boy (15) took a stab at the guitar a few years back, and it went nowhere - everything he had done up until that point came to him easily - i've seen the kid build cannons out of legos that...

    Am I crazy for jonesin' for one of these?

    I've seen these listed a few times on Reverb & eBay - but I saw one at Gruhn's this week in person, and man I thought it was sexy as hell. I know it won't sound like a Gretsch with those humbuckers, but it does have the zero fret, so that counts for something...right? I don't know, call...

    Recommendations for custom pedalboard flight case?

    Quick and dirty post - I built my own pedalboard - measurements show I would need capacity for 23x17x7 inside the flight case. Nothing I'm seeing "off the rack" seems to work - so I guess I have to go custom. Recommendations?

    Third Party Pedal Repair (RE: PCE AF2)

    Well, been gigging pretty heavily with the PCE Aluminum Falcon 2, and the other day I mis-stepped and totally stepped on the 2 top mounted switches (Bass Boost & Buffer / True Bypass). Well the switches are wrecked and the pedal is dead. Considering what I went through to get this pedal from...

    Anybody have a Weber California in their BF/SF Deluxe Reverb?

    If so, thoughts? Anybody had one in there and moved onto something else? I have a California in one of the spots of my Pro Reverb, and I'm in the process of downsizing to a DR. Amp isn't in hand yet, but wanted to know what you guys have found prior.

    Has anybody ditched a Rotosphere due to size....

    ...and if so, what did you replace it with? Do you regret it, or are you happy? I love the Rotosphere, but it's the size of a walmart parking lot - and I'm not to keen on that AC adaptor. Oh, and please don't respond with "try a [pedal of the month]" response, only want to hear from people...
