  • Belated thank you for listening to our music Derek, and glad you enjoyed it.
  • The forum has been very quiet of late it's true - but this is good stuff, and thank you for posting it all Lester. Lovely work with the sound hole feedback reducer. Also, I do admire your purposeful, compact, to the point pedal board, and live setup…
  • Sad to hear this - he is not someone I have known a great deal about, or thought much about before I have to admit. His company has certainly helped my own guitar playing though, with well-considered and designed products - I've used a Dunlop capo b…
  • I'll just re-post the link FWIW https://soundcloud.com/vintage-cool - we did this 5 or so years ago, there are things on there re my own playing that I cringe at a bit, and hope I'd do better with today. But I still think these recordings, done live…
  • Megi - I loved that. Really honest music. Please thank Beryl for me too. WOW ! Don't do professional recording. Keep it like that. So cool and retro. (I must have responded to an earlier comment by mistake. Re your soundcloud.) Thanks for listeni…
  • Cheers Derek and ES - indeed it was a bit of a guitar safari, I like that term. I do get a bit carried away with the old gas from time to time I know, but I did come to some, I hope useful, conclusions. One of which was that there really is a lot of…
  • Nice day out, it seems. There are plenty of good reviews of the AS83, here. And I am sure you get around, Megi as there is talk on jazzguitar.be about upgrading the pickups and a certain Meggy of Lincolnshire had a thing or two to say, here. I pa…
  • Time to revive the jazz odyssey - I had a bit of a boys day out today, and went with a bassist friend to visit the big Gear4Music shop/warehouse on the outskirts of York. Anyhow - the guitar section has a pretty huge display area, which still only s…
  • I'd love to have a crack at a bit of country-rock myself, not that I'd necessarily be all that good at it, just a style of music I enjoy listening to. It's always great to find yourself working alongside excellent musicians, and I sure that's richly…
  • Visiting family KP? I know both Sutton and Mablethorpe, being not so far away in Grimsby.
  • An impressive looking thing! I do wish your grandson all the best with it, although I'm sure he will do just great anyhow. I did try a 7 string for a while myself, but came to the realisation that I'm too long in the tooth as a 6 string player - ind…
  • Only slightly moist in Grimsby this morning, but that's fine - all the very best to you all!
  • Annoying - I'll be interested to see what happens, but I do hope, and suspect, that this kind of incorrect triggering of the camera happens fairly often, and the image produced/speed recorded etc. will make it clear that it's an error, and no attemp…
  • Lester, I too had forgotten that we'd already chatted re my then new purchase of the Helix LT. It's worked out very well for me personally, as someone who so far only ever uses it for electric guitar - I've no experience of how it would work for bas…
  • Wow.
  • I do have to agree about presets Nick - not only can you switch on and off any number of effects instantly, you can also change the settings without limits. Add to that the ability to choose from a hundred or so effects for each preset (IIRC for the…
  • Sounds like a great deal KP, and I'm sure the lad will indeed enjoy years of enjoyment from that guitar. It is amazing what the China, Indonesia etc. are producing these days for not that much money. But also, there is something to be said for that …

  • One thing I meant to mention was that you're clearly not considering something with the ability to DI and amp/cab sims etc. ES. So if it's basically a multi FX to replace the pedal board - then do think carefully. And imo a good idea to keep the ped…
  • Thanks Graham, I'm interested in an update a few months down the line to see how you're getting on with this in various situations. If I did anything it would still be with my proper amps, I'm too much of a die hard and I do too many venues without …
  • I'm not trying to convert you, I promise ES - just stating the considerations that have weighed with me, and I suspect a lot of others. In fact, I'd have to say think very carefully - if you really have, with current setup, everything you would ever…
  • Nice to know that fine guitar has a good home in fine hands, and a bit more space for yourself now you're down to a mere ten Jocko. Wish I could do something similar, but I can't seem to part with any of my (eek!) 10 electric guitars, 2 acoustics, 1…
  • I do accept ES's point re his "traditional" pedal board setup allowing him to choose his ideal chorus, flanger, distortion etc. - there is something to be said for that. I think I knowingly accepted I was loosing this advantage when I got the Line 6…
  • Fine cheers Nick, appreciate the concern but it was just that I was in a grumpy mood, and had a bit of a rant about Mr Corgan (I'm not his greatest fan ) and then thought I should be better than that, so deleted and I don't why I put that Chet Bake…
  • My walnut body strat is around 9 lbs, I like to think a bit under, but I would have to weigh it accurately to be sure. It doesn't seem too bad on a strap anyhow, but noticeably heavier than my other strats/guitars in general.
  • Uncharitable comments removed - got out of bed the wrong side.
  • Well I purchased a Martin 000-28EC Just got to get an LR Baggs fitted to it. Oh and sell one of my others to make room. https://photos.app.goo.gl/EG7Tk6FgaSxAEU726 Gorgeous! Now that's what I call shopping, congrats and well done JT. And nice to ha…
  • Confession - at the last minute I decided to order a 2TB external hard drive (Amazon) which was indeed Black Friday discounted. It arrived today (Sunday) much to my surprise.
  • I know what you mean Derek, it's a bit of a dodgy concept in general - buying things one wouldn't otherwise have bought, just because they're cheap. That said, I have treated myself to a couple of things today, although I don't think either was redu…
  • I am very sorry to hear about your loss of Theo, Mark. And what a sad piece of music! but also quite interesting to listen to, and I do feel there's something "Celtic" about it. A great guitar sound too - I've recently equipped my laptop with a new …

  • I am very pleased you like the blend circuit - when I first got into tinkering with guitar wiring, I went through an "every possible option with loads of switches" period, but in the end came to the conclusion this was a mistake. For one thing, I co…
