your gear.

Finally fitted my Alt 88's to my Mustang today. Not as noticeable an upgrade as my full width humbucker from the Creamery but still pretty stoked. More power than the stock ones and not quite as fender smooth. The main advantage being the output is more similar to my tele so I don't need to wank about with knobs when switching guitars.

I realised the other day that I hadn't bought a totally shit distortion pedal for ages, and as you may know, I'm all about shit distortion pedals. So I got one of these off of a guitar gear forum.

It's pink as fuck, and just utter carnage. It sounds like a middle ground between the Marshall Shredmaster and the Boss HM-2, except DOD decided that mid-range is the scum of the earth, so you don't get any mids.

 

If I run it next to an EQ pedal with the mids cranked, it will probably just burst into flames.

I hadn't bought any gear in ages so I bought a Marshall JCM800 2203KK. With it running KT88s I'll take the EL34s out of my ENGL SE E670 and put 6L6s into that. :up:

Bought a fuzz face mini after months of long research and trying to figure out a way to fit a regular sized fuzz face on my pedalboard. I can't wait to get my Hendrix on!

The latest addition to the bass stable - a 1975 Gibson Ripper which has been painstakingly restored from a beat up, badly painted, badly defretted hunk of wood:

To this:

My involvement in this escapade was limited to rough surface prep (sanding, steaming out/filling dings), parts procurement and most of the wiring.  Everything else (final surface prep (removing my scratches), the beautiful refinish (which the above picture does no justice to), the rescue of the fingerboard, the refret, the final assembly) was done by my good friend Rich Lewis in BoD.

Really happy with how it's turned out.

havent used it for recording yet but it sounds amazing so far

 

You hooked it up to your PC yet? The software it comes with makes the amp very tweakable. Capable of a lot more tones than what you can get from the dials on the unit. Different cabinet simulations make a big difference, and switching between US and UK voicings as well.

 

I haven't recorded guitar or bass with a microphone since getting it. Recording with the THR10 straight into a DAW sounds way better than I've ever been able to get with a mic infront of an amp.

I bought this:2u436sg.jpg

Seems like they're made by the same people that make Eastwood guitars.

It sounds ok, needs new electrics.

Looks the baws though :)

Sent away for new pickups, electronics, a fret dress and a bit of a tart up. Looks like this now:
