    Transparent Slapback Delay advice needed

    It was a nice one...an Echo Jr. from Pharoah Amps... Loved it at home, but I became too dependent on that mid boost when playing live and didn't want to to shut it off ...even when I did not want delay.

    Transparent Slapback Delay advice needed

    I use a Gretsch with single coils, and a Guild hollow-body with single coils straight into a Tweed Bandmaster 5E7 clone that I built....(love that amp). Echo Pedal Problem: I've tried a boutique slap-back echo pedal that would emulate old 50's style , tape delays, etc. , but I found it added...

    I built smaller, under-wound "Wide Range Humbucker"

    Nice job. Most people don't understand that inductance is the best measure on how a pickup might sound. How did you measure it?

    Spring Chicken, Topanga or Faux Spring?

    Right, if I can get like 90% of the way there, I would rather do the pedal than the tank, less expensive, less stage room required, less to load-in to the venue. But you are right, the real Fender tank is king.

    Spring Chicken, Topanga or Faux Spring?

    I'm really anxious to try the Boss FRV-1 as I am looking for a less expensive Fender Reverb tank option. I have tried several other reverbs and have not found one that can actually achieve a real 60's surf tone if that is what is needed. All the other pedals that I have tried kind of lose it...

    Hum Debugger live experience

    Hey all, I just wanted to post my experience with the EHX Hum Debugger.....bottom line it works. I am a single coil lover and I decided I was going to buy one used from Ebay. Before I ever buy a pedal, I check out the forums to see what other people think. I also check out YouTubes. After all...

    Need inexpensive wireless and advice

    Hey everybody, I am in a rockabilly/swing band and we pretty dynamic stage wise. We have only played 3 shows and have been received well here in town. I am looking into a wireless system for the guitar, so that I can move around a little. I looked at the Line 6 stuff but that's out of my price...

    Replace George L's with what?

    I love my Bill and Becky Lawrence cables, (lookup Wilde pickups). High quality, low capacitance per foot, and inexpensive compared to others.

    The Guv'nor

    Congrats I'm really thinking of building one. Can it do Plexi style gain and / or low gain OK? Or is it all JCM800 type sound? Decent touch sensitivity? I ask because I love my Bluesbreaker clone as well. It's hard to tell going by Youtube demos. thanks in advance.

    Any experience w/Boss Acoustic Simulator?

    I have some friends who like to jam w/ acoustics. I need to wait before buying one. I have a Gretsch semi hollow body and I was wondering if these pedals are any good at all just for jamming purposes or should I forget it? thanks in advance

    I give up on these BYOC pedal...

    I have built several pedals from kits. They aren't easy, but it's a great feeling when they are working. The BYOC forum is great. I built a Tremulus Lune. It was very difficult for me and I couldn't get it to work I put it away for like 6 months and built a couple other pedals. I then came...

    OD/tube screamer advice for a Super Reverb?

    Alnico Weber Blues were the 3rd set of speakers that I tried for my Bassman head and I love them. I am really happy with the way they address the mids and breakup. I think to firm the bottom, I might add a ceramic Weber Silver. As far as O/D- Marshall Bluesbreaker- the OLD one. Nice woody tone...
