"Better" is wholly subjective, of course, but for me - no.
I always think of this thing I read on the Curtis Novak website that really nails it -
"I believe a pickup should not be thought of in terms of output, but rather of input. The function of a pickup is to sense the string and send as...
Jawbox were great. I wish I'd been able to see them on their reunion tour in 2019 - the clips I've seen look like they still have it.
In addition to all his production work, J has also had several bands since Jawbox, most notably probably Burning Airlines.
my favorite Dischord band of all time...
I'm in the 10 to 15 range, and that's after a few 2 for 1 trades to get the number down.
but that's including a couple of basses, a few acoustics, a Weissenborn, etc.
with electrics, I know what I like and want to use every day, and then other things I don't play all the time,
but I know that...
I'm not sure which is the most technically difficult song to play, but "Achilles Last Stand" is the hardest to cover. Just so many simultaneous parts happening in different parts of that - which to play?
this board is for bringing the heavy. Wah is a Wilson Freaker, everything else should be pretty obvious. If I’m not using the Superplex, the flanger comes off and a Beano Boost goes on, but the boost on the Superplex comes pretty damn close.
i had a “Studio Lite” when I was a teen - NAW.
and an Edwards goldtop with P-90s that was okay.
but I got a Custom Shop SG a while back and was both surprised and impressed how much better it was than my SG Standard.
It got me thinking I needed to try an LP from the Custom Shop.
Just got one of the new run...sounds awesome with my Superplex (when I don't want to bring the bigass footswitch for the amp's boost) and Germino 2204.
side note - if you play heavier rock styles and your bass player uses an SVT or similar tube amp, the Supaboost is KILLER for bass as well.
I can't believe this has been discussed all weekend and the obvious solution hasn't been proffered-
Quit your job, move to the other side of the country without telling anyone, bringing only the clothes on your back and a guitar rig.
So much practice time! :beer
When I discovered treble boosters several years ago, that was the end of drive pedals for me.
I've owned roughly a zillion of them, but lately I've favored one from Blackstrap Electrik with an OC139 that is absolutely tops.
Still love my old Red Rooster too.
2018 EGC 1000s. Perfect condition.
25.1" scale with their thin neck, supposedly the last EGC with a wooden body they'll make.
Travis Bean engraved pickups, excellent SKB case.
I have a spec sheet I can send anyone that is interested.
Looking for $3600 shipped in the USA.
Cash is certainly king...
Came here to say treble booster. Not a fuzz, obviously, but does at least one thing people use fuzzes for - to jump out in a mix.
Also, while it’s not everyone’s favorite flavor, a Superfuzz sounds like a Superfuzz with basically any pickup and amp set anywhere from clean to filthy.
