    No worries. I’m not letting it go for less than $3k the Doghair finish alone is worth it. Besides I only want the $3k to fund another immediate purchase otherwise I wouldn’t ever sell it.

    Yeah the doghair finish is awesome. If I end up going for the one i saw, it'll be interesting to see the "merlot doghair" in person.

    I really don't want to jinx it, but this one shop has the Fender Tash Sultana Strat on clearance so I hope they still have it on Saturday when I'm going to the town to test it out. :pray:

    A Diezel FS7HE if I can actually find one somewhere that has them in stock and that will ship it to me... might end up saying screw it and just grabbing a cheap midi controller.

    EDIT: apparently the FS7HE won't do the 2 modes on channel 2 on the Herbert Mk3 so shopping midi controllers.

    ... I want/need my strings order to arrive... the wallet disgrace has already arrived (NGD within a few days) and is in need for a new setup with new strings and I only have 1 pack at home.... buáááá (this is me crying).

    Yeah, I know I can use this 1 pack to set up the new lady, but she's not the only one in need for new strings and set up... guess I'll run the shops around and see if there are any on them...

    There is apparently an FS8HE for the MkIII, but I've only seen them in stock in Japan. I'd definitely recommend getting midi controller for that price though. As much as I like Diezel amps, all of their controllers are overpriced and underfunctioned, particularly Columbus.

    Most amp manufacturers make bad controllers, except the magical little box that is the JVM controller.

    There’s a behringer clone too. I’ve had one on my wishlist for months.

    Yeah what really annoys me is the controller is ~$180 on Thomann but Diezel dealer restrictions won't let them ship to me.

    I'll probably just grab something like the Tech 21 MIDI Mongoose as I don't need 1000 banks of patches, just want to be able to switch the channels without having to get up while playing :lol:

    The main benefit the FS8 has over midi is its so frustrating to make the midcut and master 2 switchable with midi. Diezels are only able to receive midi PC, so you can't just make them toggle in any simple with midi.

    Its so dumb.

    Yep... and most controllers that aren't stupid expensive only send PCs anyways. I need to look, I thought programming a channel on a PC grabbed the MV, channel, and mid cut settings but could easily be wrong. Of course that means an entire separate patch for each set of MV / channel / mid cut options.

    I would love to know how the hell the FS7/8 send 7 or 8 commands over a single TS cable. Got to be doing some form of complicated signal multiplexing to tie into the MIDI control as normally it's a conductor per switch operation for simple switching.

    Yeah, you have to send a PC for whatever combination of channel/midcut/volume/loop/mute you want. Which is sad because on my JP2C for example I can send a CC to just turn Shred mode on regardless of the channel, or whatever EQ I want.

    I'm not sure how they actually do it with the footswitch, though a few companies now have fairly complicated switching setups on a single TS connector so it can't be very complicated.

    I ended up with a MC8 for a variety of reasons as my midi controller, and while pricey its very fully featured.

    Well, you were correct. Lots and lots and lots of midrange, but wasn't very crunchy. No high end to balance it out did make it sound woofy as all hell.

    Glad I bought that Blackout just in case. :lol:
