    Because of some miracle, I managed to get a set of these. The proper Phase 1 7-string set. Thanks to a member here :wub:

    Now I need to wait and see about the pickguard.

    Got a pair of these:

    Adam A7X monitors. Extremely choice. Very fine. Look to be replacing my Neumann KH120s.


    And another one of these:

    Tried the UA OX... didn't like it. Back with my TN Reload and Studio. The OX felt like I went back 10 years in tech time. No V30 4X12 ir on the OX... wah da fuq?

    I've been agonizing over getting an effects processor that was going to be decent and, just as importantly, cheap (being a college student and all) while still having the features I needed. I picked up a Zoom G5n today, and I have to say, I'm pleasantly surprised. Prefacing my assessments with the conditions that a) I'm not using the amp or cab sims, and b) I'm by no means an aficionado of pedals, I've actually been quite pleased with the sounds I've managed to achieve. The drive pedals in particular actually sound a lot better than I expected them to. It'll work for the context in which I require it (church), which is great. Most importantly though, it didn't bend my wallet over the kitchen sink to do unspeakable things to it.

    Naturally, the honeymoon period is in full swing. I'll probably find something about it that will make me want to stick my head in the oven, but for now, all is well.

    I have a cheap little G1on, and I am amazed at what it can do for $50. Even the amps sound decent. My only complaint is that it is noisy when you crank up the gain. I liked it so much I also got a B1on for bass.

    Had some Guitar Center bucks and picked up one of these. Probably grabbing another used pedal or 2. Any Tremolo suggestions for like $100-150 used?

    Picking up a used EV ZLX12P on Sunday, if it goes the way I'm hoping then it will finally be time to list my Rockerverb 50 mk2 and 2x12 cab to go fulltime FRFR, which is both exciting and terrifying at the same time.

    Zoom is VERY underrated. I had the G9.2tt and it was pretty awesome.

    I just bought one of these squishy Roli Seaboard Block keyboards. It's definitely a lot of fun but man does it require a lot of practice to not sound like a dying cow.

    Someone on here will read that and think "finally, the haunting cow-like lead tones I've been looking for"
