    Strymon Iridium!

    I am officially a Strymon nut. Not only the Iridium, but the Volante and the Big Sky(all in 4 weeks). There's a large sonic world in those boxes. Woohoo!

    Home studio/recording guys, is there any point to micing up an amp anymore?

    Been working with the Strymon Iridium in a writing studio. It seems to do a remarkably passable BFDR. Not sayin' I will never use mics on amps again, But the fact is, the modeling is just fine, and it's really quick.

    Who has moved from Fender to Two-Rock and regret it?

    I swapped a '68 Fender SFDR with a JBL D120F, and a big handful of cash for the 1st K&M Custom(#22) 50 w/loop. Thought I was an idiot until I got it home and plugged it in(I traded it away when I stroked 14 years ago). The 2nd K&M Custom 50(#27), I paid cash to another TGPer. No regrets, my...

    OP, I bought the cheapest Weber 8" in the online catalog for a 1979 SFC, it sounds like its supposed to.

    Looking for help getting better recordings

    OP, these guys are ALL guessing. You cannot tell what the problem is without hearing the recordings to provide audio examples.

    She's cute, but she can't deliver the goods like a young Percy..She sounds like she is straining in about 2/3'rds of the song.

    Stereo Chorus, should I go stereo, or do I just need a blend knob?

    If it was me, I would try an analog chorus with a blend control. I like the CMATSMOD Analog Chorus for a mono signal device. I never run it to full effect. Sounds marvelous.

    Friend has aquired a fixer-upper

    It is not left on the fret board with the dirt to create a sloppy wet mess. It is wiped off immediately with paper towels and kept relatively dry. Not a lot of dishsoap is to be used, just a little to get that accumulated dirt loose with the toothbrush, so it can be wiped off. Never had a...
