  • I've seen several episodes of pawn stars when guitars are featured and the general concensus of "the internet" is most of them are staged - If my memeory serves me correctly the Hendrix guitar was for sale on the web site of the expert who appraised…
  • I kind of like these a lot - I've never been familiar with shergold, so they are a little new to me. Love the body shape and particularly the blue-grey one. I'm not so struck on the headstock design, but I think this would grow on me. To me they …
  • Ta all I have been enjoying the youtube videos Richard - they are always on my playlist.
  • Thanks guys! Always can find time for guitar Megi- I have room of my house kind of dedicated to it now (I decorated it in exactly the same shade of Orange as my amps!). Just going slightly off topic, but it's great to have space where I can just l…
  • I'm here......just not got much worthwhile to say... Guitar has taken a backseat for a few weeks while I pushed hard to finish 100,000 word novel that I've been working on for a year and a bit.....time to play some chords before the editing phase c…
  • What grinds my gears is when people use the word Pacific instead of Specific.  
  • Lester - that is a couch made for guitars!  I have a dream to build a music room/man cave one day - it's a while off, but it's fun to mentally configure it.
  • Really like the finish on the baycaster Reg - I remember many year ago when guitarist was worth reading they had review of Nik Kershaw's custom tele (I can't remember the builder), that had an amazing birdseye top in  a very similar shade and I reme…
  • Amps contain lethal voltages - they can take a very long time to bleed away, fortunately most modern amps are good at separating the voltages from the bits you stick your fingers in, but heed the warning!It sounds like power tubes - if the amp is se…
  • I met Chapper's just before Xmas at the Dorje gig in Tunbridge Wells.  He's exactly the same in real life as he is on You Tube 
  • Thank you guys - I count the number of guitars I've had that are instant keepers on one hand, the ML-2 is one of them.Tonally the SH1's are very traditional PAF voiced hum buckers - although I would say they are both pleasantly hot and fat - the bre…
  • The gigbags from Thomann are excellent value and very well made - I use them for Basses and a couple of guitars - I opted for the mid range ones (around £16) rather than the premium ones and they have pockets and padding in abundance. Their hardcase…
  • I've got to buy some paint and a couple of brushes on the way home, not sure of there are any offers on, but I'm going "tooled up" just in case.
  • IIRC the CR series have a voicing that's modelled on the Rockoverb; which can only be a good thing. I converted to Orange amps this year after years of messing with other amps and frankly it was the best move I've ever made.  Aside from tone the bui…
  • I've always preferred simple EQ sections, I think this why a gravitated away from Marshalls and toward Orange. My TH30 has a remarkably flexible shape control on the dirty channel that runs from all mids to scooped.  I generally find that the tone I…
  •  Tone print is pretty cool.  The software alters how the internal parameters of the pedal work - so they are more than a preset; they are more akin to complete pedal voices. While you can download them via a PC there is a better way of doing it - yo…
  • Not sure about damage, but I would not want to pick one up afterwards! I know someone who uses car interior cleaner to do them - I think it contains silicon which I think can be problematic over time (it can go misty). My amps are all Orange, so it'…
  • I'm with your thinking Steve.  Back in 2013 I also bought a 2004 LP - although with a 60s neck.  Back then there were already things I didn't like about the current standard (although I did come close to buying a 2013 traditional). This year I wante…
  • I reckon the diode is where all the extra mojo comes from  when you see old pedals listed on eBay for several times their actual worth! I'm kind of glad this thread came up as I alway knew old boss need 12v but never knew why.  
  • They do.  But if they are early MIJ then they require a 12 volt supply to run off mains. 4.1 Boss ACA vs. PSA Power Supply Adapters.The early Boss products like CE-2 with reduced power consumption used the ACA adapters which provide unregulated 12VD…
  • Old MIJ BOSS pedals require 12v as opposed to 9.  I can't remember if they are centre positive (like the new ones).  The info on the base plate will confirm what you need. I'm pretty certain the power station can't deliver 12v - but worth checking t…
  • When you plug the problem pedals in, does the light on the power supply go out or flicker dimly?. It's a weird problem as BOSS pedals and Diago PS are as generic as they come.  I have had 9v connectors on pedals fail before -but  for it to happen on…
  • I've used any number of boss pedals (including the CH-1) with a Diago powerstation with no problems.  Diago ends are a bit fragile so you may want to check the are providing power. It's also worth checking that you have no shorts.  If you have any u…
  • Effects do seem to go very well on ebay - there are usually enough bidders to keep prices strong and postage is easy (especially if boxed).  Mainstream popular stuff obviously gets the best return - I've seen TC Electronics pedals sell of £10-£15 le…
  • Axes r us are my usual port of call. Alternatively is you want to go down the custom route I had one made by Sims Customs a couple of years back - a little pricey - but excellent product
  • I'd probably find Nickleback and tell them of the misery and suffering they would inflict upon an already wounded world. After that I'd join Thin Lizzy.  
  • HI Chris - greetings from a fellow resident of Kent
  • I'm now at the point where I have pretty much decided the main pedals on my board. They are:In FrontTC PolytuneTC Mojo Mojo OverdriveTC Dark Matter distortion In Loop MXR Phase 90TC Vortex FlangerTC Corona ChorusTC Flashback DelayTC Hall of fame rev…
  • I really would like an SG, I've just seen AC/DC and the sale price isn't far off second hand price so the omens would favour it......but G-force is still an issue for me - I can live with all the other 2015 upgrades, but not that innovation.  I don'…
  • I prefer two channels as it means I can go full out on dirty and keep clean as clean as I want.   That said I'll also go old school and back down the volume.
