1. During the first week of August 2020, we'll be upgrading the software TGP runs on to the currently available up-to-date version. The software version is a significant upgrade, so there will be some downtime as we do the work under the hood. We've got a team of professionals, including the software development company assisting the process. We've conducted substantial tests using backups of the current forum to ensure a smooth and successful upgrade. We've gone to great lengths on the design of the theme (aka 'skin' or look and feel) of the forum to offer a better user experience for members and visitors. The default theme will be new, yet clearly influenced by the classic TGP look. We will have a dark version of that also easily selectable. Also available will be a "Classic TGP" theme that closely matches the current theme you are accustomed to using with the current software. There is also an easy width adjustment to make it set width or expand to your window width for each theme. As we get closer, I'll update everyone so hopefully, no one will be caught by surprise.

    Has anybody tried a Jersey Girl Fulltender? How good is it and does it have any negatives? How does it compare with a reissue TS 808?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Fulltender?
    You've got to be kidding me? Is that really a product?
    Can't anybody do "booteek" without some sort of "Full" or "tone" in the product or company name?

    Fulltender? (laughter)

    Paul.

    Fulltender is close to the menatone Blue Collar... not too far from a TS808.

    About $100 more expensive.

    The Fulltender that I tried sounded great, but was very noisy!

    Yup, the bass and treble boost switches add a lot of character and noise to the sound. If you can live with the noise, the Fulltender gets some beautiful lead tones. Think expanded/fortified 808 and you'll be in the ballpark.

    I had one, the down side.... it does not have a tone knob, instead you have two toggle switches.

    Otherwise, cool pedal....
