Is there any reason to buy a Line 6 Verbzilla instead of an M5?

Hey y'all. I really love the Line 6 Verbzilla, but I've noticed that it's cheaper to buy the M5 pedal modeler that also comes with a whole bunch of other effects. Is there any reason to buy the...

Where can I get a rattle can that's as close as possible in hue to Fender's Lake Placid Blue that also has a bit of glitter to it? I'm refinishing a strat right now and I'm obsessed with the color...

I wish I never bought my Roland Microcube, but I wish I'd kept my Ibanez SA160, my Peavey Valveking, my DL4, my Verbzilla, my 10-band EQ, my Carbon Copy, and my Tubescreamer.

I sold a lot of junk...

Want to refinish my guitar, have a couple questions about prep and paints.

Hey guys. I have a Carvin kit strat that I finished in high school. I did a pretty poor job with the paint (chalk it up to being young and impatient) and am getting tired of the color, so I have...

How's the clean channel on the BV-60H? I can get one for ridiculously cheap. All I need is good cleans and onboard reverb. I'm also thinking about a Peavey Valveking and Fender Blues Deluxe, but...

Twenty Foot Drop

(Verse)

There's a 20 foot drop

From the roof that I am standing on

To the pool that you are swimming in

And I am gonna jump.

If I could get a Quadraverb for $40 or a Quadraverb GT for $60, should I spend the extra $20?

Quadraverb, Microverb, Nanoverb? What's the difference?

Hey all. I'm thinking about picking up an Alesis ____verb because I dig the really ambient, swirly sounds they seem capable of, especially since you can come across them for chicken feed. I keep...

It's probably not as bad as I remember. At the time I was enamored with my Valveking (not sure why I even bought the microcube) so it might just have been a case of getting what I paid for.

Has it got reverb? I'd honestly pay a premium for something with an adequate onboard reverb.

The Micro Terror has a tube preamp and a 20 watt solid state power amp. If volume is your concern, I expect you would do better off elsewhere.

Something's wrong with my amp's reverb

It sounds like you're getting ready to throw the baby out with the bath water. New pickups can have a big impact on your tone at a much lower cost than buying a new guitar altogether.
