Got my blackface Bassman back. I played it a bit last night to make sure the guy didn't jack it up, and it was sounding pretty good. I think it likes these Nocaster pickups a lot more than it liked the DiMarzios.

The pickups are pretty great. Took me a little to adjust to the brightness of single coil bridge, but I definitely prefer it this way tonally.

I traded my Tele for a Epiphone Valve Jr. head and 2 110 cabs that have 50s jensens. aparently the speakers are movie theater speakers. They sound great whatever they are, especially with the Valve Jr. I plugged it into my bandmaster cab with a WGS Liberator and Veteran 30 speakers. It sounds huge for a 5 watt head on that cab. Big, yet dynamic and responsive. I checked the back, it has a Telefunken el84 inside. Overall, I am quite happy with the deal. I also ordered a new delay yesterday. Yay for new gear.

School is killing me. But the first Tiny Fractures show was this past weekend and we killed it! And the last Native Wildlife show is on Sunday. Soon I'll be able to relax and build some pedals.

So, the gig on Saturday night... The main thing I learned is that I seem to have become some sort of post-punk folklorist. When we got to the venue and there was a dog running around that didn't seem to belong to any one person, I pointed out that the Butthole Surfers had travelled with a dog, a female pit bull called Mark Farner Of Grand Funk Railroad. When the soundman didn't like the idea of us running the drum machine really loud through a bass amp so we could hear it properly I recalled how Steve Albini always encountered similar problems in the early days of Big Black. God, I'm boring.

I won't go into how badly we were treated by the venue and the various bits of gear that either got damaged or 'went missing' through no fault of our own because I've done enough venting about that the last couple of days. Apart from the 40 minutes we were playing the night was an unmitigated disaster, but while we were on stage the drum machine pounded incessantly, self-oscillating fuzzes squealed and growled, grooves graduated from repetitive to trance-like, bleak lyrics of big-city anomie echoed around the room and the invisible barrier between stage and crowd was smashed down. A large portion of the modest crowd watching us came up to tell us how much they enjoyed our set and how they'd never heard anything like it (they clearly haven't listened to as much Joy Division, Wire and Swans as we have). I think we're off to a good start.

Enjoy occasionally controversial ramblings related to guitars? I have a blog which meets these criteria.

It is a Seymour Duncan Deja Vu delay. It has both digital and analog delay in one with a blend between the two. It also has subdivisions and modulation on the analog. The big reason I bought it is because it has a feedback loop. I want a delay that has destroyed trails so I will purchase a bit crusher in the semi near future to make that happen. I may also get a few other effects to put in the loop. Maybe an instant lofi junkie or a microsynth of some sort. Anyone want to buy my Cusack Tap-a-delay?

yo man are you diggin that Deja Vu?

My DL4 is half broken and I borrowed a friend's Deja Vu to see if I wanted to buy it. I thought it was an awful delay pedal. I mean, it sounded good, but it wasn't practical in my opinion. I have a much easier time crafting weird tones (and controlling them) with my DL4
I thought the loop function was also terrible

And the feedback thing was cool, yeah, but it just didn't track well and was far too touchy for my liking.

Have you been able to tame the Deja Vu?
