You still getting the Budda? Is the plan to have this and the Budda? Or is that on hold for a bit?


I bought the budda. You can see on my facebook. Then I returned it. The new production ones are not nearly as good as my old series one.

So I returned it and bought this beautiful ****ing amplifier. haha

Would there be any chance of picking up a Norfleet before I go back to Perth? I fly out on Wednesday night would be cool to catch up for a bevy or a bite to eat whilst I'm over!

I bought a 1965 Bandmaster yesterday with the matching cabinet. The cab has been loaded with older greenbacks. I don't hate them, but I need to hear the Bandmaster with other speakers before I decide on the celestions for this.
Anyways. It's a really great amp. The GE 6L6s were dead and I threw some EHX 6L6s in there until I can see my tech in the middle of next month. I'm gonna throw some nice NOS shit in there because I have all RCAs in the preamp section.
Anyways, this will make for a great demo platform and the John Mayer tones rule.
Hahahaha, but I can post-rock myself to sleep with this amp. And the mojo is unmatched.

Sweet! Got it for a silly price and what Celestions were you considering?

EVM-12Ls!

Very jealous of Korey's bandmaster.

Also, I'm in the studio this weekend with my screamo/emo/whatever band. Massive amounts of porn incoming. Here's the other guitarist's collection, to start:

I'm not exactly considering celestions. I worded that funny. I meant I'd give it some time before I decide if I'm keeping these celestions or not.
Definitely not putting EVMs in here because I've realized I don't like that much speaker headroom. I'll figure something out. The greenbacks sound pretty alright though.

EVMs in a Fender probably aren't the best thing.

And yeah, I sold it to the bassist of his other band but we're borrowing it for this session. The double dark boost setting is killer on bass.

So my first rehearsal with my new band was insane. We basically wrote a gig's worth of material in our first session, just by setting the drum machine going, picking a chord and going for it. You can tell that the other half of the duo (who plays bass) used to be a guitarist because he plays chords with a pick through a fuzz pedal, which is exactly the kind of bass playing I absolutely love. Even the drum machine had some serious vibing going on.

one of my best customers (seriously he owns like 20 toyroom pedals and has had 50+ things modified by me) plays most of his gear through all sorts of junky drum machines. like a mix of good old stuff and toy shop crap.

I'd buy one if I had any ****ing money ay. Soon broke.

Played a Hyperion for the first time yesterday. **** thats a mad circuit. So much range in the gain knob alone. It's from the muff family isn't it? Because I've never really liked muffs, had an NYC, Anarchy Audio Cockblocker and found the musket boring as ****.
But the Hyperion is mad fun. I think my mate is gonna pick it up, he was equally impressed and I'll get to play it a heap more.

The Hyperion isn't anything like a big muff but gets compared to it often.

Yeah, the Hyperion is way more glitchy/crazy, and has a gated quality to it. Pretty cool pedal

I want to try out a Hyperion one day, just need to find a dealer in the UK that actually has one in stock...

As you may have read I recently formed a new band, and of course the most important thing about that is getting my pedalboard right for it. At our first rehearsal I was using my normal board that I use for my Americana excursions (McSpunckle And Aardvarks! overdrive, Fuzzhugger Algal Bloom, Red Witch Eve tremolo and Dispatch Master) modified with some bodging - by unplugging a few patch leads I can 'patch in' (that's why they're called that, you know) my Fuzzhugger Arc Flash and DL-4 to add post-rock-wall-of-sound delays and glitchy noisy fuzz to the equation. But this then needs another power supply, and having unpacked everything after rehearsal I discovered that this setup takes about 15 minutes to put together, and that's not including two guitars, an amp and the drum machine, which I expect would upset a lot of people when we played gigs.

So now I'm thinking of, for this band, throwing my spare Polytune in front, plugging the Holy Grail in at the end (and praying it lasts for an entire gig without breaking) and using the Arc Flash and DL-4. That does mean I need an overdrive, and it's reminded me how totally uninspiring I find 99% of the overdrive pedal market. Since I play Teles and I like them to sound like Teles (bright, brash and twangy) I tend to veer away from Tubescreamer clones and Marshall-in-a-box things. I was looking at the EHX Soul Food but a friend of mine has one and says it still has a mid-range peak that saps his Tele's character quite noticeably.

So I don't know what overdrive I should get. A SS/BS Mini, maybe? Or even just a boost to give it a nudge in the right direction, like an EP Booster.

The same friend (who has recently spent all his worldly assets on a Strymon Flint) summed it up perfectly in the pub on Saturday night - "Ahh, f**king gear, man"

I hope this isn't the kind of vibing my circuit bent Yamaha does. It used to crash in the middle of every single gig (and wipe it's memory). Only reason it stopped is coz I stopped gigging it. Keep us updated, if you ever play a show near Bristol I'll come along.

A lot of chat about this Hyperion fuzz, I'm getting a bit fed up with the muff sound so I'm thinking of building one, do they live up to the hype? Sort of thinking I might actually just want a normal distortion as I've never owned one.

Built a Great Destroyer today for my "normal" guitar board and it's properly nuts, there's even at least one good straight up fuzz tone. Gonna build a double destroyer for my noise setup, which should be a disgusting mess.

My board for guitar is currently:

TU3
OCD
El Capistan
Context
Ditto

Bass board is:

Polytune Mini
(Ever changing dirt pedal - haven't decided yet)
HOF mini

Still keeping it simple which works for me, but I am keen to try different gain pedal (ie not muffs or rats). Just not sure what I need or want I guess. Still thinking about a trem and a subtle chorus pedal.

Also the penny pedals fingerprint, basic audio scarab deluxe and the new mxr big purple octave thingy looks mad.

Brendan I typed a bunch of shit into the quote box and can't be ****ed gettin it out of there.

My board for guitar tonight is:
polytune mini
Warped Vinyl
Industrialectric RM-1N
The Cleanness
DD7+TT
Fairfield meet maude

Sounds awesome.


also salmon man, the Hyperion is cool but pretty normalish, not a crazy pedal but not mundane at all. A nice fuzz for actual guitar plus a touch of weirdness,
great destroyers are totally way madde
