    Hey everyone.

    My name's Pete.

    :RoCkIn

    I'm Lead singer and guitarist in Ska Punk outfit, WOBBLY BOB (www.myspace.com/wobblybobmusic)

    Yet I prefer to play 70's Rock (Led Zep, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Queen etc.)

    Here's the gear I use:

    Jackson JS-30 Guitar (Regret ever getting it. I hate locking tremelo's and Jacksons! Am trading it in September for a Epiphone Les Paul 'Black Beauty'. Ideally I would love the Gibson version, or even better the Jimmy Page signature remake, but they've sold out and I'm a poor student!)

    Marshall JTM-30 (The '96 Plexi Combo remake. Sounds pretty accurate, though a bit rough round the edges. Would absolutely LOVE a real JTM-45...yet I do not have 10 grand to spare. lol.)

    Pedalboard (2 layer homemade job, which, incidentally, I'm selling if anyone's interested...)

    Pedals:
    Electro-Harmonix Hot Tubes Distortion
    Korg DT-10 Tuner
    Boss Super Chorus (soon to be replaced by TC Chorus/Flange pedal)
    Keeley Compressor Deluxe
    MXR 6-band EQ
    Small Stone EH4800 Phase Shifter (Broken :( )

    I am a complete tone geek, so I hope I am welcome on this board!

    Hey Pete! Ska RULES! I played with a very popular Boston Ska band in the early 90s, "Steady Earnest".
    Just listening to some Toasters this morning.

    Welcome to TGP...

    Actually, I've always thought ska and rock go very well together for guitar players of the rhythm persuasion (and funk, too!).

    I've always said: "If you can play the 'off beats', then the 'on beats' are a breeze", right?

    Welcome to TGP...

    Under The Sea and Ghostbusters... good to hear some fun ska today, my daughter had a big smile. Well done.

    A bit heavier... but my favorite Skunk bands are AAA, The Suicide Machines and Falling Sickness.
