I've been wanting a PC1 for a long time. The neck is amazing! I should have bought one years ago now that new prices are mid $4k. I came across a used 2012 that has titanium "upgrades." See pics. It's in excellent shape and babied. I would not be able to play on it before purchase as it is out...
Nik asked me if I wanted a negative feedback control option on my build. +$25. Do I need it? Is it a must have? What will it do?
I'm going with a KK100, buffered loop with level control, channel 1 leaning more towards plexi, channel 2 is a Chupacabra.
I've been debating between the KK and the Chupacabra. Channel 2 on the KK leans towards the tone of Yeti and after emails with Nik, he told me he could voice a KK towards a Chupacabra if I preferred that.
I think a KK voiced closer to a Chupacabra would be a great build. The buffered loop...
It was physically damaged. I did plug it in and test it out. F'ing LOUD at 9 o'clock. Definitely needs a PS. Talk about an in your face amp! Crushing, tight, mean, articulate, and then beautiful cleans on top of it.
The new D60 Series II is on my list. I had a VHT D120 about 12 years ago that I stupidly sold. Is the master volume on the Series II still go from whisper level to wall rattling before 8-9 o'clock at the slightest touch?
It's not just you! I am in the market for an explorer. The natural antique explorer I played on had small frets. Left the store highly disappointed.
Back in the 90's I had a Gibson RI '76 Explorer. No small frets on that one.
Gibson prices go up but fret size goes down.
I bought that appropriate usb cable to use with my Android phone from pedal. It worked like a charm. No need for a computer hook up.
Unfortunately the pedal went back. A toneprint is not a true preset. When you save a toneprint and want to use the other delay types, change parameters, but...
Helios or Eclipse vs Goldfinger SL45. I'm torn between these amps but no chance of playing before purchasing. Would the GF be looser/more sag, than the Helios? These amps seem to cover the same ground, no? Matter of feel? Please enlighten me.
I'm going for .38 Special, Foreigner, Thin Lizzy...
