    Which high priced pedals are worth it?

    My favorite big cost ( also big box) pedal is the Roger Mayer Voodoo Vibe + I have tried for years to replace it due to its size and I can't find anything that compares. It lives on my board forever! The absolute best in its class IMO

    How much of your solos do you hear in your head before you play?

    Biggest let down purchase of 2018?

    Red panda Tensor, I even used an expression pedal. I could not get anything inspiring out of this pedal that was usable for actually playing the guitar. I hoped it would do some cool tape stops and starts but even those were sort of underwhelming. I usualy lean to spaceman wizard type of sounds...

    Best pedal purchase 2018

    Bought a bunch of pedals this year, only one that stayed home was the El Capistan. I keep most pedals based on gigabilty and this one is really friendly on stage and can get wild and back without presets and toe wiggles on knobs. Just a well designed, usable echo pedal.

    Best pedal purchase 2018

    I bought one and played it for 30 minutes and sold it on reverb 20 minutes after for a cool 4 dollar profit. (covered my fees) I just didn't even see a use for it. Maybe I jumped ship too quick but I am a sonic wizard style player (ha!) and couldn't make the magic happen.

    Using a looper in a band, live?

    Its totally possible. Unfortunately its like all things, it just takes some practice and a little trial and error. I love having the option on my board. Sometimes its gets used in between songs as a pad to get to the next tune. Have fun!

    Does anybody have any experience with the guitar grimoire book on rhythm guitar?

    I have three of those books and they are pretty hard to work out of. I got some great chords out of one of them but have since moved on to other material; primarily the internet.

    ebow technique

    the picking hand is still very much in control with an Ebow. You can shape the attack and tone of the sound by moving to and from the pickups. Biggest thing as with all things is experiment and practice Do they still come with that cassette tape with all the tips?

    Amp Advice carr / two rock

    I fear this dreaded drive channel that everyone keeps saying is really bad. I have a tonemaster head that I think is probably similar to the Slant 6v on the drive channel. Just way too much gain. used in controlled doses it sounds great but it can cover some pretty heavy territory (which I never...

    I have been looking at the Carr slant 6v and the Two Rock pro 22/35 I am wanting something that will get me decent breakup at a low volume. I really like the Carr amps and don't know too much about the Two Rock. Should I pull the trigger on one of these amps or should I save my dough and...
