Metal flim resistors are temperature stable, and carbon unfortunately isn't, even brand new. That's the sound we like, and engineers don't understand. Here's how I measure that; take a simple 100K Pla ...

I really believe that is just one more example of the myths and hype that gullible guitar players fall for. I know I'll take a beating for saying that, but I'm used to it. I mean, we live in an age wh ...

And aren't pickups the heart of the tone? Even the P90's in any Junior I've had were microphonic. So there's a huge flaw with the guitars in my mind.

I don't wish to argue either so just a few poi ...

I think comparing guitars to amps is a waste of time........ Mick
What I was implying is the philosphy of finding flaws in gear that thousands of other people still want to buy is flawed itself. I do ...

And I believe those are two of the real flaws in the Blues Junior. It's hard to believe Fender doesn't have an engineer who understands EL84's, but apparently they don't. And the stock speaker is crap ...

Off of the Fender track, but when they were blowing out the discontinued Crated V18, you could have scored one for $150. And GC had scratch-and-dent floor demo ones for $99. No way in Heck you'll top ...

Certainly it is a well made pedal. And the hinged treadle is unique. No copying Boss here. But the effecet itself is just not making me say WOW! I know as I turn the knobs I hear a lot of scratchiness ...

With my limited edyamakashun, I will throw out a hypothesis and say more than likely. If it is a parallel loop, I really believe you would still hear the signal routed through the rest of the amplifie ...

I know there are a lot of home-brew mods for the DS-1, which are probably cheaper to do than buying a kit, but I'm not great with electronics and I thought a kit was a good lazy option. The mod was pr ...

Too late. It's mine. Either it isn't quite right (unlikely, since it is sooooo clean), or this just isn't my favorite compressor. I doubt there's anything needing to be 'fixed' on it, so I just have t ...

I have a chance to grab a dead mint black TCO-1, but I don't know a thing about them. I have more than a few compressor pedals already, and even a few rack mount dbx units. Is the TCO-1 just another V ...

That's even more Japanese guitars that I own! I had the Ibanez V, and traded that for a Tokai Jazz Bass that eventually went for a Tokai Silver Star that I still have. I see Greco, Burny, ... ...

Well, I hadn't thought of that . It's just the Johnny Winter in me that thought of a Firebird. I'm actually dumping Strats and Teles I have for 'other' guitars like Specials. I have no idea why ...

I may be crazy but I feel like getting rid of one of my Reborn/Love Rock guitars and getting a Firebird (Tokai, of course). The Reborn I have in mind is all original and the serial number dates ...

Well, I hope everyone had a safe Xmas. I just thought I drop in and tell anyone who was curious what I ended up doing. I 'splurged' for the pair of '57 Classic PU's, and they are in my Love Rock right ...
