Man you ain’t never Lyin. Rose colored glasses came off of me pretty quickly seeing some of the stuff I did.
IMO, to be brief:
I’m not hired as a guitar player to be different.
I’m hired to play the part as written.
That involves a certain set of...
Epiphone Valve Jr cab in stock form.
Best deal on the free market.
I thought I had, but ears and backs and needs change. Longest in the stable is my Orange Tiny Terror.
Currently on a Peavey TransTube combo kick...
The original Orange Tiny Terror was my workhorse for like 10 years. Run thru a 2x12 it kept up just fine. Zero negatives about that amp.
Fender or Peavey
Like others, I hung on probably a bit too long. Hit it hard thru my 20s, facing burnout at 29 with actually working a job, weekend touring, a...
Just in my own experience:
Strat into Marshall half stack sounds “ok” at stage position (close proximity) but is GLORIOUS at crowd and FOH...
Currently using EHX The Glove, which is an OCD type pedal apparently.
Was looking at a Boss dirt box though.
What didn’t you like about them?
Did a Pearl Jam thing for a few years. Started off as Mike, switched to Stone when no one else wanted to do rhythm. Had a blast and got to play a...
Spent the last hour or so Googling for answers - which produced a bunch of TGP threads, which I read - but didn't get any definitive answers....
Ummmm....currently I’m at 4 pedals if I count the tuner:
EHX The Glove
Once I let go of the fear of “being without” some stuff (I’ve...
I use my LP for hard rock tuned down to Drop C.
I rock it in stock form. But I like a fat tone with just enough gain to get by.
Lol I think this is the only correct answer.
In my local scene:
We use “dad band” and “dad rock” almost synonymously. There’s a definite sound and vibe to it.
I’m gonna jump in here to say this:
I’m SUPER close to the local EDM scene in my area, and all those “kids” are for the most part playing...
1. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
2. There has got to be more to this story that isn’t being reported.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:
Live music should provide an escape. We’re entertainers first and foremost.
I had purchased up when I was gigging heavily. Spares for spares sort of thing.
Now, I’m down to a well rounded stable of: Strat, Tele, Les...
Pink paisley jazz master?!
Sign me the f*ck up.
Peavey Trans Tube is where it’s at.
1x12 50w SS is my minimum, but I’ve seen guys mic’d up to 1x10 100w (they exist) and rip.
15w, in my experience.
Also, your guitar should only be as loud as the snare, sound-level speaking.
15w isn’t really enough to produce low end oomph that you’d associate w 12” speakers.
It does cut like hell in the mids, which is where you want...
I feel ya OP.
I’m currently building an all-BOSS board bc I’m confident it’ll sound great.
Granted, it’ll still be about $1k all said and done,...
