    New H-BOMB Fuzz from Henretta Engineering - a pedal with knobs!

    Here's the first in a new line I'm rolling out. The circuits are based on the circuits in our line of little no-knob pedals. This one has aspects of both the Purple Octopus octave up pedal and the Bluebird fuzz. It's nasty and abrasive, but you can still play multiple note licks and complex...

    Small reverb pedal with no knobs? Sure, why not!

    The latest addition to our line of no-knob pedals - the Moody Blue reverb!! You can achieve a wide variety of sounds with internal controls for Effect Blend, Dry Volume, and Reverb Decay. The box is bigger than the original no-knob line (to accommodate the reverb "brick") but the jacks are all...

    FS: SOLD Lawrence L290 TL-E tele bridge pickup

    SOLD $15 including shipping to USA. Pickup is fully functional. I drilled holes in the bottom plate (you can see them in the photos) to mount it in some whacky way per my usual antics. It's a nice middy pickup with a lot of character. As I've read about a lot of the Lawrence pickups, it can...

    Help me shop around for a 36W Marshall-esque head

    It's impossible to search for 36W, so please send links to exhaustive threads on this issue if they exist. I have an 18W Marshall inspired (simplified version with just a single tone knob and no trem) head that I absolutely love. It's perfect for gigs and banging around at home. I want to...

    My first Sovtek Mig 50 experience - Wow!

    I've been playing with a new group of guys here in the Twin Cities, and they have a couple Mig 50 heads in their rehearsal space. I played through one of them a couple times during my "tryouts" but was too much in the mode of being a new guy who is self-conscious and trying to figure out which...

    Please help me find this preset pedal I found online once

    I should have bookmarked the page, and now I can't seem to find the right search terms to get to the page again. It's an all-analog box that lets you hook up four strings of pedals, assign the strings to any of four different presets with little dip switches. The box is square-ish in shape and...

    Nice cheap way to get noise-free Strat neck and middle

    Grab some of the Mighty Mite rails pickups that can be had for as cheap as $18, including shipping, on Ebay. I'm sure they're coming from the same overseas supplier as everyone else's cheap rails pickups. Anyway, put them in the neck and middle positions, and wire them in parallel - Blue+Black...

    Who made necks with 1.5" nut width.

    My number 1 guitar has a non-labeled neck that I got from a rack at a random Music Go Round. I happen to love everything about it but the nut width. I prefer the typical 1.65" nut, and this one is more like 1.5" or 1.55". It gets hard to do sus4 or anything fancy down at the low frets. *EDIT...

    Just installed a full set of Hot Rails and discovered a great configuration

    I picked up an old set of Seymour Duncan Hot Rails for one of my Strats. The bridge measures at 15K! The middle is around 11.5K, and the neck is around 10.5K. I put them in like this at first and had a blast playing the bridge, but it didn't need to be that hot. The others were OK but tough...

    My #1 is now a plywood Strat with unknown pickups!

    I never would have put this guitar together on purpose, but this is how things happen sometimes. I pickup up a beater old Indonesian Kramer S-style for close to nothing at a local place. I was actually after the neck, which was in decent shape and felt really nice. I put the neck on my Tele...

    A little praise for Tech 21

    As a USA consumer, it saddens me that it's considered such a novel achievement when a USA engineering and manufacturing company can persevere in the current business climate. But that's the truth of today's world. Tech 21 out of New York is one of those companies, and I've recently migrated...

    A pretty one with no wanking...that's right, NO WANKING

    Here's one I did a while ago that I'm revisiting to see if I can find someone to write some vocals and a nice vocal melody for it. It's one of the few where I left a decent amount of room for vocals. There isn't any wanking in it; it's more of an exercise in guitar melody and mood...

    Pure nickel strings and ceramic pickups???

    I'm experiencing interesting results with this combo. Is it just anecdotal, or have others experienced it? Shrill is what I get. It's more Balanced with regular nickel wound strings.

    All (gasp) Solid State Rig - first time in...18 years.

    My instrumental project did an in-studio at Saint Cloud State University a few weeks ago. I used a pretty unconventional all SS setup, and, well, it still sounds like me. It may not be the sound everyone is going for, but it's exactly the sound I want with this band. And it's almost...

    Is the 'smaller builder selling direct' model a bad idea??

    For the last year or so, the old ban on "deals gone bad" threads has been lifted, and there have been several threads about small builders that seemingly get in over their heads with orders, get sloppy with correspondence, get sloppy with product quality, and ultimately get a big black eye...
