    Picked up a Volante which I think I'm mostly going to use for piano and vocals for the time being.

    I mean, i think most amps in production fall between those two in terms of saturation :lol:

    Seriously though the Satan was just so good. I think we’re all lucky Randall owns the Satan circuit, and is able to offer what is essentially a Fortin amp at a normal price.

    Skervesen deposit is going in this week probably. Build thread will come after that :)

    Very excited to FINALLY order one of these after seeing so many here.

    The matching battery pack for my Fishman Fluence SSS pickups. I was convinced by the Moderns I played at Axe Palace, but I'm now a true convert because of these.

    Ehh, I'm probably still going to ditch it for a TC100. Yesterday I liked how the clips I recorded sounded, and today I think they sound weak/low gain compared to the same riffs through my revv or mk3 :lol:
    I mean I can get my revv to sound basically as dry and tight as the UL, so it's essentially redundant to me.
    I think just really prefer juicy/saturated high gain tones overall. :shrug:

    That's the same exact thing that happens to me. I struggle to dial in a tone, finally get something great, and the next day it's all bluuugh. I think ear fatigue plays a part in it. I find if you spend weeks not being happy with an amp, just ditch it. It's been my experience. Most of the times when you have an "AHA!" moment, you find later on you get unsatisfied again so, fuck it. :lol:

    An yeah I think the TC100 would be a good choice. Something smoother to go against the Mark III/Revv.

    Yeah, I'm sure I'll keep flip flopping right up until I sell the UL. The only amp I haven't flip flopped on at all has been my FSM. Absolute fucking monster of an amp. When I have to downsize, everything else is going on the chopping block but that one.

    On a different note, the Dean Baker Act is a solid pickup. Reminds me of voice 2 of the Fluence Classics. Somewheres in-between a Duncan JB and a PRS Tremonti Treble. I actually like it a little more than the Dominion because it's just tight enough with plenty of attack to be chug-happy and saturated enough to sound fat.

    about to buy (more accurately put a down on an new ONI guitar) and i've been curious about getting new MTM monitors, possibly the focal shape twin, or idk what, and possibly a sub, i'm hesitant on the subwoofer, but think it could help getting some of the mud out of my terrible mixes and "music" that i record

    another thing is a new compooter, i'm thinking i'm going the windows route for recording, given that the OS is much easier to update etc etc

    and then buy a little mac book air or something similar for day to day stuff, ie internet etc porn and facebook, or whatever else there is to do on a computer besides record music

    Need to get me a few wall hangers to save floor space, probably going to get a second expression pedal for my AX8 as well at some point.

    Weird to feel like I'm 'done' guitar wise. Only thing I would like to get at some point is a Dingwall NG5. But I'm not hit by serious GAS yet.

    Got another Majesty inbound, this one in none more black :lol:

    If I can move some stuff and the blowouts on these keep up I may bring home a 7 to round out the collection. It's actually hilarious as I absolutely hated these when they came out, but after playing a few and seeing them in person I dig them.

    (yes the shovel pun was intentional)

    I started to come round to them with the Artisan ones, haven't had chance to actually try one yet though.

    Yeah I liked the purple Monarchy and caved and grabbed one a couple weeks ago. Great playing guitar with a ton of tones in it.

    I really like Ola and want his company to succeed, but I am not digging the aesthetics of the Solar stuff very much especially the Les Paul. That headstock just doesn't look right lol. Ola is a cool guy though and I hope he does well.

    Those LP shapes look wonky as hell to me, like a melted version of the flat top LTD Eclipses. Surprisingly though the headstock doesn't bother me as much.

    Definitely not feeling that headstock with the LP style body.
