    As an owner of an Invader, no, you don't.

    Some red and white automotive paint, and some masking tape to paint up my black dean Z with the frankenstrat colors in honor of The Man.

    I did the thing and ordered a Strymon Volante, as well as a Wampler Terraform! :D Just looking for a suitable reverb now--really looking hard at the Meris Mercury7.

    Issues with the Engl, or just think the Invader is better?

    Not really any issues, I just don't like how it sounds compared to any of my other amps. It doesn't mix well with other amps and has a plastic quality to the tone that you can't dial out. If you want scooped and synthetic it might work for you, I've had mine for ten years and haven't used it in at least 6

    I agree, every ENGL I've ever had sounded sterile and lifeless.

    Ahh I don't have much experience with Engl, but that is generally the complaint I see online. I picked up a used Revv Generator 100 and I'm going to be returning it because of the same reason. Great "metal" amp, but too much compression/saturation/tightness kills the feel for me. Sounds good, but just kind of generic and lifeless.

    Hooray, it arrived! I feel like a bitch complaining about the shipping time, this thing came in a box that could have taken a bullet and come out unscathed.

    This thing is great - Super low latency, tons of IO, powered by USB-C, super low noise, etc etc it's neat

    Yup!
    I was intending to buy a Harley Benton vertical 2x12, but decided last minute to go for something fancy!

    I've only played it at low volume so far, hoping to crank them soon. They definitely chug though!

    Completely out of the blue, I ended up bringing home a Voodoo Labs Sparkle Drive Mod that they had on clearance for $99 and so far, it seems to drive high gain amp sims quite nicely.

    New toys has joined the collection!


    KHDK Annihilator Doyle Signature. One signal being split into 3 paths. Then they meet again creating your own tweaked signal. I currently have a Zakk Wylde Chorus pedal in the Blender path:

    [​IMG]


    Pro Tone Pedals Gary Holt Signature Mid boost. Sounds absolutely awesome paired with an overdrive pedal:

    [​IMG]


    Synergy Fryette Pittbull module. My new favourite module but the Übershall module comes in as close second:

    [​IMG]


    This box also arrived..

    Next up: More Synergy stuff and most likely a new midi control to replace my old BOSS GT-3 which takes up too much place on the pedal board and is only used for midi switching anyway.

    KDHK looks like they make legit shit. I was hesitant because I thought it was just another artist trying to make money off their name by stamping it on bullshit but, I actually want to check them out now

    MXR makes legit shit. Pretty sure that is who makes KHDK's stuff, similar to Horizon Devices.

    Nope, made by all-pedal.

    And to be fair, unlike Horizon, KHDK have their own engineers designing the pedals.
