    Just pulled the trigger on an Effectrode SR-71 Blackbird. This was the only one brand-new in the US so I feel pretty fortunate to acquire it. Should see it here later this week... very excited to say the least.

    Um, why the frowny face? I love building a new computer. Maybe your old one exploded? :eek:

    It didn't explode, but I had a minor setback. Both Lightroom and all of my plugins for whatever reason decided that they didn't work all of sudden and I was preparing for the worst. I got it mostly up and working again after some work, but I'd still probably like to build a new compy just for music and video/photography editing. If I can keep my old one as just a gaming pc that'd be fine, though I haven't done much pc gaming since I got a switch.

    I'm not talking putting a Carpe Diem in front of an Engl Fireball 100 lead channel with gain dimed lol. But a lot of people buy a dirt pedal and they're not running in through a pedal platform clean channel... I know I didn't when I was younger and I don't remember many people properly doing it either lol. I used to run pedals through my Peavey 5150 "clean" channel all the time, often with the gain partially up and with bright on and presence up (eeew lol). So yeah I would argue that a large portion of people don't know that most distortion pedals need a really clean channel to sound properly. Also, most people don't realize they need to match the pedal with their amp. e.g. a full range clean on the verge of breakup (with low breakup) like a Marshall will sound VERY different that a Fender with high headroom and slightly scooped mids (hence TS sounds so good). A full range pedal like a Klon sounds great, but a full range OD/boost/or low/mid dirt might sound great with a Marshall but will sound really muddy through that full range Marshall.

    ^ That would be hilarious

    I honestly wish he would lose the tribal skulls stuff on the pedals, IMHO simple like the 33 looks much better :2c:

    Update on the amp-situation:
    I made the seller another offer which he accepted. I paid 1700kr / 268 dollars / 228 euro for this little bad boy, which I think is pretty much a steal! :)
    The guy was pretty cool too. He lived on a small farm and had a pretty big rehearsal space. He showed me his guitars and other amps, let me try all his stuff and we had a generally good and nerdy chat about gear and music.

    Here's a picture of the amp:

    Yesterday I tried wiring my Line6 Pod HD Pro to the amp via the 4-cable method, and it works like a charm. I think my next purchase will be a footswitch controller for the Pod. I'm pretty happy with this setup! :)

    Sold my Ibanez Iceman. Was my drop B guitar, but I'm thinking about getting this for tuning down to drop B.

    I have wondered how cool those are. I have thought about the ASM-12 many times. I wonder if they would finally make me like FRFR sounds...... I know they are suppose to have more of that in the room cab sound and feel than other FRFR cabs.

    Well, I ordered one of these:

    [​IMG]


    I have been kind of bored lately, so I figured why not get something so far out there it all seems new again, lol. Let's see if my tiny fingers can reach the top string, lol. Been listening to a lot of Primus lately, and love his 6 string fretless stuff. I figure this will be a nice change of pace, and something to improve at. These are cheap enough to have around, even if not played often.

    I borrowed one for a couple days and loved it.

    I finally got my TWE-1 pre-order and it's never leaving my stable. They make great stuff. :yesway:
