    Noisy Echosystem?

    Have any one any issues with a large hum with these units? This is my second new one and it’s doing the same thing. I’ve tried front, back, middle of chain. On its own, different cables and guitars. As soon as I engage it it hums like a mf. Any advice?

    My #1 is a Warmoth Strat, Mahogany Body, Maple neck with Pau Ferro board. The problem is it's a wizard style neck and its killing my hand so I'm going to replace it with a different Warmoth neck.

    NPD - Thorpy Camoflange

    Holy smokes guys, it’s flange heaven. It’s like he took all the best things from all the best flangers, put that in the box, then added a bunch of Thorpy in between all the great sounds. Very impressed so far. I bought it mainly as EM clone with all its issues fixed, but it’s a bunch more...

    I am buying a compressor, and I need help.

    I’ve been in compressor hell for a long time. I’ve researched, watched, read, asked and I finally think I’ve narrowed it down. I plan to join a classic cover gig soon, and I also write heavier type stuff. What I’m after is a comp that will work well with a strat and pedals into my clean...

    NPD - JHS AT+

    I picked this pedal up recently and finally gave it a good rip today into the clean channel of my TC-100. I’m really surprised at how good it sounds. Light, medium and high stuff it just sounds good. The boost is great on its own and of course it stacks brilliantly with the gain side. It’s...

    NAD - Mesa TC-100

    Well after getting a clean bill of health from the amp doctor, she's here. It's quite like the 50 but huger, girthier, punchier, louder, and broader sounding than the 50watt.

    Going to do the deal tomorrow on my tc100. I put a couple hours behind it last night. Tried the upstanding Mesa cab. Not for me, no balls or low mids. Tried to oversized 2x12 with v30s, (which I typically hate) and with the tc100 it was killer. Non of the harshness I attribute to v30s. I played...
