    New modulation pedals and their "extreme" settings - Are they actually usable in a musical context?

    It seems that many of the new modulation pedals have all sorts of extreme settings / detune settings, or other "random" modulations that to my ears is just rubbish. Does anyone actually use these crazy vibrato/chorus/detune/bitcrusher settings? Can anyone point to actual examples of this in...

    Ratajczyk Dream Reverb - Aussie tube goodness

    Hi all, Does anyone else here have an amp made by Ratajczyk? I have the "Dream Reverb" and love it. It has 3 channels - Clean, Overdrive and Boost. Terrific for blues, rock and good times. Great crunchy sound, and it takes pedals really well. I love that it has power scaling, reverb and...

    Blue Jean Blues - Is the amp making this sound!?

    Hi blues fans, I've always loved ZZ Top Blue Jean Blues. Most of the guitar work here is pretty clean sounding, but then at about 1:55 in this vid, for about half a second, there is a sublime crunch (or something) where it breaks up. You hear this artefact throughout the song. I love this...

    Radial BIGSHOT ABY - Take it with you when you demo guitars in a shop

    I love this pedal. It's a basic ABY splitter pedal. It allows you to spit the signal into 2 amps. Great for creating thick tone if you have 2 amps. I use it a lot. However..... If you reverse the connections, you can also get an A/B comparison between 2 guitars. I thought this might be a...

    Has anyone upgraded from Suhr KokoBoost to KokoBoost Reloaded?

    I love the original KokoBoost. Cannot think of any reason to upgrade.....none...zip..zero. I've seen the new model. Seems like the one-button to switch between boost and Mid is a step backward? Am I right!? I love the convenience of being able to switch to any channel, or off again with...

    Why do some amps have built-in tremolo...why not, say....flanger!

    Just wondering....out of all the guitar effects, why do some amps tend to have built-in tremolo!? Why not octavia, phaser, fuzz, uni-vibe etc etc. What's with tremolo? How did this one particular effect make it into amps?

    Awesome tone from G&L Comanche last night

    I've had my G&L Comanche for many years. It's a beast that just has so many tones in it. Even though I've played this guitar for years, I still keep discovering new tones... Last night I got onto a tone that was just awesome, and had to share... It was a big, Texas style, SRV tone that just...

    Replacing Z coils in a G&L Comanche / ASAT

    Has anyone ever replaced the Z-Coils of a G&L Comache with a standard strat style pickup? I would love to try doing this. I guess one of the things about buying a G&L Comanche is that you are stuck with the pickups. Does anyone else make a Z-coil? I figure you need to buy/make a new pick...

    Oops...Just walked into my guitar room after 2 days and...

    ..noticed that I had left my tube amp on! At least it was on standby. Has anyone else done this? Does it hurt the amp? What is standby anyway? I remember reading somewhere that SRV used to leave his amps on for days so that they warm up and give the best tone? Is this true, or an urban...
