    Vince came by and really dug playing the new Pearl combo with Port City's new unique reverb.

    Vince seems like a bit of a gear Ho. :)

    Oh, I meant that as a big compliment. Just dawned on me how my comment could be taken that he would play whatever he could get money to play. Not my intention at all. Meant he seems to like gear as much as the rest of us around here.

    He stopped by our booth and bought one of our Ultramafic cables at the show. Super guy.

    God, I want a Pearl so bad. I wonder if the new reverb is built into the amp or if it's coming from a pedal. I might be glad I've had to wait to get one.

    Sounds amazing, as always. Love Vince's playing.

    Nevermind. Answered my own question by looking more closely at the video. So it now will be coming with reverb. Sweet. I planned on getting one eventually either way but now I want one even more.

    I think the appropriate term is "gear slut".

    Vince is a guy who used Rivera & Boss for years. Then he gets a Zendrive, next he's going through all kinds of boutique stuff. It makes me feel better about my own gear obsession. I just wish I had one of his vintage Teles!

    They are! :p I think the owner is a member here as well. I haven't been lucky enough to check out any of their amps yet though, but they certainly sound great in every demo i hear.

    And I concur with Wes, let us Port City faithful know if or when Vince comes around!

    It is on the amp. Can be turned on/off by a footswitch.
