Well, i searched high and low for one, but the stores were always out of stock, and no one selling 2nd hand..... Well, about a week ago, a guy pos...

The sound of the TS5 is quite close to the reissue TS9 Tubescreamer, but its not very durable, as the casing is made of p...

Schallers definitely!!!

I tried a set of Dunlops on my Gibby Les Paul once, and almost scratched the guitar on the upper non-cutaway bout.....

The Schallers are rock solid....

Happy New Year, guys!!!
