• Supporting Membership Changes

    The Supporting Memberships are currently being updated moving forward.

    In order to coordinate giveaway drawings to the Supporting Members there will be a new alignment in the naming of the tiers. (Note: Non-Supporting (Basic) and Monthly Supporting Members can get into the drawings by mailing a postcard. Details on that will follow with a giveaway starting soon).

    The pricing for each Supporting Membership level remains the same though the naming of them will change. The privileges remain the same as current but with the new name. If you are a current Supporting Member, you will be upgraded automatically for the existing term of your Supporting Membership. We are introducing a new tier with new perks.

    Table here

    Supporting Membership Guide

    • Monthly Supporting Members will remain Supporting Members
    • Current annual Supporting Members will now be Silver Supporting Members. Perks and permissions remain the same
    • Current Silver Supporting Members will now be Gold Supporting Members
    • Current Gold Supporting Members will now be Platinum Supporting Members
    • A new level will be created - Double Platinum Supporting Members

    All memberships will now have the option to remain as non-recurring memberships or choose reccuring memberships moving forward. *Note: current memberships will NOT be changed to recurring memberships.

    Fractal vs HX, effects?

    Seems to be the general consensus here that Fractal’s amp modeling beats HX. How about the effects front?

    NGD: 2019 Les Paul Standard Seafoam Green (for reals)

    Well, I took my daughter to a birthday this Saturday and decided to stop by a nearby GC while I waited. Ended walking out the door with one of these seafoam 2019 Standards. Absolutely not my style when it comes to looks and myriad of features and such, but just loved, loved, loved that neck and...

    So recently I got an R9 with these. Love them, but kept messing with heights not able to decide where to settle. Finally bridge is at 1mm both sides, neck is at 0.5mm high E, 1.5mm low E. Quite a bit higher than I usually go with PAFs... you guys finding the same?

    Duane ring strap

    I like leather straps with LPs and always wanted to have one of these, finally found one. Feels great on the shoulder, but you have to be really careful with that huge ring. Jury still out on if I will use it regularly or not, but it looks undeniably cool in my opinion! IMG_6060 by jruano...

    OX crackling noise

    Been noticing this lately. Anybody getting a weird "crackling" noise from the unit? Quick clip quickly strumming a chord using the 6 rigs on the knob. More obvious on some, but plenty noticeable:

    Enlighten me on these guys, are there any models equivalent to classic fuzzfaces or tonebenders? Also, what's so especial about them that justifies the $$$, if there's anything other than the exclusivity.
