    My favorite fuzz tone is my Boss DS-1?!

    I happened to be perusing some YouTube videos on Gilmour inspired tones and stumbled across this video where a DS-1 - set rather unconventionally - obtains some really awesome fuzz and overdrive tones. Tried it at home...plugged the DS-1 into my Bad Cat on the edge of breakup, added some DD-2...

    The Best Albums to Fall Asleep To.....

    After a few weeks of sleepless nights due to life related stress, I decided to try and ease into a deeper slumber by finding some albums to relax to with headphones. I had a hard time thinking of what would work, so I decided to revert to my childhood "headphone" listening days where I would...

    My Orange OR-15

    After buying my Orange OR-15 on a whim as a back up to my Orange RV-50 and to use for smaller gigs, I found myself loving this amp more everyday. It's light, small, simple to use, 5 knobs and killer tone and superb effects loop. Set and forget the amp, use your guitar volume and tone to shape...

    Marshall 1987x Mods

    I recently grabbed an odd ball of a Marshall off of Reverb. It's a 1987x...but came from the factory with a JTM45 plate on the front (that was a bit weird) but it was a great deal. I had the amp modded with the PPIMV using one of the speaker jacks on the back for the master volume (chicken head...

    One Expression Pedal for Two Delays?

    Is there an expression pedal that has two outputs so I can use one expression pedal for two delays? The idea is to position one pedal between my DMM 500T and Boss RE-20 and depending on which effect is activated, the expression pedal works with that pedal.

    NUX Cerberus

    Something new for NAMM 2017...this likes a pretty versatile small multi-effect package for grab and go rehearsals or small gigs. They packed a lot into a small package (especially on the modulation).

    Hi, I'm looking for a very versatile amp for a variety of gigging situations (large and small) to support my band's new album release. I currently have a few amps...they all do one thing great (either great overdrive or clean) but not both. Needs to cover classic rock, southern rock and...

    NAD: Orange OR-15 Head

    I was looking for a back up head to my Orange RV50, as well as some lower Orange wattage for some smaller clubs my band will be playing this Spring/Summer. The RV50 will be used for the larger stages. I may also use a very downsized rig for small venues with the OR-15 as a swing/back up for...

    NGD -- Upgrades to Fender Classic 50s Telecaster

    I've had this Classic 50's Tele since 2003 as a main gigging guitar. Over the years, I've had some minor upgrades -- brass saddles, Stew Mac Vintage locking tuners, CTS pots and Seymour Duncan Antiquity Bridge pickup...but as much as I loved the neck shape, I hated the poly gloss all over the...

    New Tape Delay Day...WEM Copicat

    Picked this immaculate baby in all original condition up on Reverb for a great price...and it sounds beautiful! Some of the grittiest, warmest delay I've ever played....plugged into the front of my Orange RV50 BTW. To be expected, slap-back is just fantastic...has some great ambience/reverb...

    NPD: Skreddy Screwdriver Mini Deluxe...Brings a smile to my face :)

    I recently purchased the Screwdriver on the recommendation of a friend. I was looking for a versatile OD to work through a clean amp for gigs, but something that could go from smooth overdrive to a raunchy fuzz like tone. This thing sings and rocks with a Les Paul into both my Fender and...

    What amp am I?

    I've been thinking of getting a combo amp that is based on a tweed circuit but also has tremolo and reverb...with a 1x15 speaker. The only amp that I could find that came close (although not really a tweed) was a Peavey Delta Blues. So, any other ideas or suggestions?

    NPD: Death by Audio Reverberation Machine

    Just got this yesterday...test drove it for an hour. I was looking for an ambient reverb pedal for an Americana meets Psychedelic project. So far, I'm very hooked on the tones coming out of the "machine". Some general comments: Pro: The switch between "dark and bright sun" is like...

    Low Wattage Amp for Big Stage?

    Need a little advice on whether using a lower wattage amp will work well with the band on a bigger stage. I typically have been using a 20 watt Top Hat Club Royale on our typical club/bar gigs; however, the band will now playing a 3000 seat club/arena and I'm wondering whether I should stick...

    Boss RE-20 Space Echo Club

    Ok, I see many TGPers talk about how great the Boss RE-20 is for getting those great tape delay echoes and trails, but for the most part, it doesn't get all the respect it should. Yeah I know for some on here it's a Boss, if you don't use the right power supply it can have noise (no noise for...

    The most expensive cable...ever!

    This must be one helluva cable...packed "with care" from Japan. Obviously a mistake...but on TGP someone may mistake this for the Klon of cables.

    The Unethical Practice of Review Magazine Advertising in Exchange for an Album Review

    For the past 6 months, my band has been promoting our album to local media, album review and instrument magazines, FM/Satellite radio etc. We hired a publicist, received a lot of great press, very good album reviews and got a significant amount of FM and College radio play on West...

    NGD: 2003 Les Paul Classic

    Just picked this beauty up off of Ebay for a great price. This LP Classic is in "mint" condition and was barely played, if at all. It's a 10 year old guitar and is virtually NOS....sat in a case most of its life. I was looking for an LP Classic as a backup to my main guitar for the upcoming...

    I love my Mesa Electra Dyne.

    What a great amp! I bought a used one off a TGPer for a great price and I can't say enough great things about this amp. I've owned and continue to own a slew of great amps (Orange, Marshall, Fender, Top Hat etc); however, I'm taken away by the versatility and tone of this amp in such a simple...

    Should independent artists provide their music for free?

    Maybe not the first to bring this up on TGP, but it always seems to be an ongoing debate and discussion among original or independent bands/artists. Should music be given away for free for self-promotion and recognition, or does that "devalue" the work effort/expense/time that was expended to...

    Saw Counting Crows/Wallflowers last night

    Great concert in NJ last night. Both band performances were outstanding and the crowd was really into it through the end. First time I've seen either band, but I didn't realize how talented the CC band was, as each member was multi-faceted and a great player on a a variety of instruments...
