    I didn’t ask my source for a guest badge in time. Missed the deadline by two days, and I’m bummed about it.

    Nice! Who are you going with (company)? I’d like to go some year. Though, I just got back from CES and have the flu now, so I’m laying low on the large-groups-of-people thing. Wash your hands and get plenty of rest so you don’t get NAMMthrax!
    (And :lol: to your post. Loved the screenplay visual!)

    Rumor is they're putting out new cabs as well. Not sure what to expect there really, unless it's just different speaker combinations. They just put out a cab IR loader as well.

    Fireball doesn't have a Gain Boost and doesn't need it. Retro/Invader/Artist Edition lunchbox, I think.

    Ha! Indeed. I've got fairly Ok "convention game", due to my work. :) A lot fewer people with tattoos at furniture shows, though, (except maybe Salone in Milan..).

    And it's official! Registration complete, and hotel (jesus...stupid expensive) booked.

    I'll have to miss the first day (Thursday), though. I'll just be there Friday and part of Saturday...

    Just adding this into the mix of "things that may not need their own thread."

    https://reverb.com/news/source-audio-unveils-the-eq2-programmable-equalizer-namm-2020

    Source Audio is releasing their EQ2 pedal. More presets avaialble now, improved display. Combined parametric/graphic operation. Stereo ins & outs and the ability to have two different presets for either output, much like the Boss EQ200.

    If this comes in at a lower price point than the EQ200 and appears to be much smaller in size, Boss may need to sweat a bit.

    Looks like a step down/avr transformer. But I'm glad more companies are doing little tube power amps now. Even Ceriatone has a nice looking one.

    Ehh... not so sure about that. My bandmate just had a different EQ pedal that was essentially the exact same thing as that Source Audio... (maybe it was source audio? But I could swear it was silver colored...) and while he liked the sounds, he said it was super duper annoying to fiddle with an eq where you have to adjust each slider one at a time with a knob, and he ended up selling it and replacing with an EQ200. He's got a pretty large pedalboard though so I doubt he's worried about space. But those new boss 200 pedals are really not as big as you'd think, if the switches were any closer together you'd need to wear your pointy cowboy boots to stomp with any degree of accuracy.

    The original SA EQ pedal was gray in color, and it was released about 10 years ago. This one has come a long way.

    It has full Neuro Editor functionality, so you can program it with your phone or desktop.

    Also whoever said Fireball lunchbox amp...

    Might be right. :lol:

    The amp with the toggle switches is most likely a new full-sized amp.
