You'll need the adapter. Buy one, man. They've got a lot going for them. It's worth having to put up with 18V.

How much better is the 10 band vs the 6? This would be my first EQ pedal do you think I should just spend the extra or is the 6 band still good.

The 10 has two important things that the 6 doesn't - gain and volume. That's not gain as in distortion but actual gain. You adjust it to suit the input level being applied to the pedal. It means you can run it in any loop, (line level or instrument level). It's tweakable for every situation.
But more importantly - the volume knob. It allows you to change the volume without having to disturb your carefully dialed in curve.
Spend the extra.

Is there a better option? Also it says that it's 18v will I be able to power it off my Boss NS-2 or will I have to have the adapter?


If you buy from MF you get the adapter with it. http://www.musiciansfriend.com/ampl...q#productDetail

That thing looks solid, I'd buy.

I'm not sure if someone here could help me. I'm attempting to make my own foot switch for my Peavey ultra 112. I've got a schematic from Peavey, and I've got all the parts, I'm just a little confused about wiring the 7-pin din.

As you can see in the pic below, the schematic labels the pins 1-7, going clockwise. The numbers that I've written in with arrows are the numbers that are written next to the pin's on the jack I've bought. Do I wire the pins the way the schematic says regardless, or do I transpose the wires to the way my jack is laid out? There also appears to be a ground tab on top of the jack I've bought.

Thanks!

What does a tone bypass switch do on a big muff? I can have one added for .60 more. Is it worth it?
Also, please be honest about this one. Is a peavey valveking 112 with the stock speaker replaced with a warehouse veteran 30(comparable to a celestian vintage 30 with less of a mids boost) good or is it bottom of the barrel?

The tone bypass just removes the tone knob from the circuit. It gives a bit more output and treble. It's not a huge difference but if the price difference is minimal you might as well have it.

I'm not a big valveking fan. It's a common thing to say that the valveking just needs a new speaker and tubes but I think that's true of every amp in that price range, and the valveking just doesn't bring anything to the table that isn't boring or cheap. The valveking line was designed to be as cheap as Peavey could possibly make a full-size tube amp, and it shows. A used Classic 30 or a Blues Junior or a Bugera can all be found at similar prices and have a lot more going for them sonically.

That's a bit harsh. They're not that bad, they're just cheap.

Noooo

They're lovely clean. The V30 swap out is popular with rock and metal players but the dirt channel itself is a bit inadequate. There are some other common mods that can take it up another notch and it loves pedals.

Has anyone here had to widen a pick-up cavity before? I bought myself a Lace alumitone P90, and the P90 Riffian for my 60's LP, but the damn things are 0.12in wider than the originals The site said they we're direct replacements, and the Lace tech guy said they'd fit, but they seem to be pinching a little at the corners. I feel that if I really pushed, I could make it fit, but I don't think I should have to force it.

What's the easiest way to make these fit? Dremel? I'm just worried that It'll look like shit when I done, seems there's not pick-guard or rings.

Any tips?

The normal way is to use a router and lay down fences. If you are good with a chisel that works just as well, albeit more time consuming. You have to be careful and know what you are doing with a chisel but a skilled steady hand can do an excellent job. You have to work with the grain, have a sharp chisel and a rubber mallet.

Yeah, I'm thinking I may just try a sanding bit on on dremel. Its really only getting pinched a hair in the round corners, so I'm hoping I may be able to just widen the corners a hair. I'll have to take a better look tomorrow night when I get some time.

what does this mean in context to guitar pedals? "supply must be 9v centre-negative"

It means the power supply needed has a center negative polarity. Like the standard Boss type pedals. Actually most pedals and power supplies are center negative, but it is good to check first because there are some that are center positive or they are actually AC voltage and not DC.

It means the wall adapter you use for it must supply 9 volts and the barrel plug must be grounded on the center element. It's the most common setup for adapters, so for instance a standard boss style wall plug is 9V center negative.

Adapters will list their specs on the back, center negative has a little diagram like this:

robb and roc are absolutely right, but figured i would mention that fuzz pedals are more likely to be the opposite. so those are definitely checking.
