    You should just get your 5150 modded. It’s all about the mods. They use them on albums you know. All of them.

    I’ve done this dual head, split cab combo before and it sounds absolutely terrifying.

    I want to finish off my pedalboard. Not sure if I want to get a Temple or something else.

    Well...I was really in the market for an Orange amp.

    Threw that out the window and purchased a minty Vht cl100 with a graphics eq. Should be here in around a week and will report back asap.

    Gotta love tax season!

    Man, the Ormsby 7 strings are fantastic, I'm really hoping to get my hands on one soon as well.

    I've got a couple of things I'm eyeing up for purchase soon. Been continuing to build up my pedalboard and diversify it for different kinds of gigs. A couple main things I'm looking to get next are:

    Electro-Harmonix Synth9 pedal - Lately I've been playing more Paisley Park type of stuff (i.e. Price, The Time, etc.) with some people and I've been wanting to throw in some more funky weird '80's sounds of my own so I think this will help further that plan. https://www.ehx.com/products/synth9

    Seymour Duncan Powerstage 200 - I already have the PS-170 and I love it's sound and portability but now they've announced the 200, with a Presence control, cab sim, dual speaker out jacks and balanced D.I., etc. I need that! Debated selling the 170 to get the 200, but I think I'm going to just continue to save up for the 200 and keep the 170 for a backup or a secondary pedalboard. https://www.sweetwater.com/store/de...tage-200-200-watt-pedal-board-guitar-amp-head

    Finally getting a Kemper.

    Going all out too, Powered head, Controller, Mission pedal, Carry bag and flight case.

    Wanted powered rack but found a really fair deal.

    Aaaand I just impulse bought an EVH Flanger. Was used and cheap as shit, and I really miss that effect. Even if I get a multi-FX unit, I still really wanna keep it just for the Unchained button. :lol:

    Next pedal I'm not sure. Either an entire mulfi-FX (G-System or HX-FX), or a delay and chorus (DD7 and MXR Analog)

    Baritone P90 Cabronita, Thinline Cabronita with Jazz pickups

    Guitar Center puts some links up, but then were taken down before NAMM. But some guys got screenshots of it before it went down:

    Here's the link

    Got a Polytune 3 yesterday and it's a bit of a disaster, as it turned out. Apparently, some dark genius at TC decided that instead of letting the user decide whether they want the extra polytune feature or not, the "clever" algorithm will switch between the two seamlessly. The shitty algo craps out at A# on the seventh string, even if you mute all the rest - it goes briefly into the polytune mode and only then it gets back to the normal one. It occasionally craps out even for the higher tuned strings. The polytune feature also only works for E standard, so for downtuned guitars you have to fret the whole six strings at some fret to get the EADGBE, and the fretting itself puts enough pressure variation to ever so slightly detune the strings. And just in general, the polytune isn't all that useful, it's more of a rough approximation, you're better off just tuning regularly, it'll be faster in the end. The build quality isn't anything to write home about either, Boss pedals are definitely sturdier. At least I didn't pay the full price, got an open box for $75, but it's mint.

    I seriously don't get it, why in the hell would they force this auto switching options on the users? Because the tuner itself is fine, it tracks reasonably fast and well. Should've just gotten the TU-3.

    Yeah, that's what everyone recommends, but I got attracted by price tag of the Polytune. Buy nice or but twice, I guess. Hopefully I won't get too annoyed with the Polytune, I really don't feel like spending more money on tuners anytime soon.
