    Yeah, there are differences, like the Dragon had 2 MOSFET clippers, and the Timmy has 4 Silicon diodes in different configurations based on the clipping switch. It is not a direct clone or anything, but there are definitely some topology similarities, such as how the EQ controls are placed in the circuit and such.

    Dragon?
    Timmy?

    When did the guitar market start ripping off the Bob Long paintball market?

    Hell... maybe I have unsophisticated ears... because I've played dissimilar pedals before through a given rig and would have sworn I had one pedal on only to realize it was a different one. It's made me realize there's different ways (completely diff circuits) to end up with the same overall tone.

    Snagged myself an EDB605 as a one-day-belated birthday gift to myself :lol: I wanted a 5 string when I was initially looking at basses, but nothing around here fit the bill besides the 4 string EDB600 I found in NH; so I grabbed that and didn't really look back, but now that I want that extra string for both my B standard and E standard needs, it became an "issue." If it plays as well as my 600, just wish the extra string, I'm gonna have to toy with keeping both of them or getting rid of one.

    About to pull the trigger on a Entwistle HDN neck pickup. I had one before and it was SUPER fucking bright, but it was only a bridge pickup. I feel like I'd dig it in the neck.

    EDIT: Fuck it, ordered.

    Bought a new OT for my 5150. Actually should be a massive improvement over stock, 5150s aren't exactly known for killer iron.

    I'd like to get a good quality power amp used for cheap so for the few times I can play my kemper through a cab I could.. Maybe monitors would be a better solution but for the price a power amp seems like a better way to go.

    Grab an Orange Pedal Baby 100 or a Mosvalve 942. Both are fantastic poweramps imo.

    Ive been keeping my eye on the single rack space Carvin power amps, the DCM150 i'm watching right now is 150 dollars which doesn't seem bad

    I know you have a Kemper but, i would still pick something up that has a presence and/or resonance control. Just my two cents though

    Ah, shit, had I seen this earlier I would've just sold you the one I'm planning on ripping out of my G400 :lol: I never use neck pickups, and if I do, it's Duncan for all mine, so it's being replaced with an ST-9 that I've got laying around

    Grabbed a mission expression pedal for the axe and figured out how to import all my ownhammer IRs, so I think I'm all set at the moment. I've been playing/practicing quite a bit more since I got the axe, and it's really got me in a better mindset as far as my playing goes than looking for new shit I don't need.

    I've got a Carvin DCM200L for my Axe FX rig and it's killer. Haven't looked into the 150 at all, but if it sounds anything like the 200L, it'll be a great value.

    This is going to be fun...

    Building a few clones off the T C Integrated Pre and a Drive Pedal . Waiting on my IC sockets to come in . Someone took the time and posted links and sourced all the parts to where it was very easy to do ...so what the heck right ?

    Actually kinda regret ordering it in the first place because I just got the warrior and the neck pickup actually sounds REALLY good. :rofl:

    Bridge pickup is another story.
