I'd love a Carvin. There's something classy about them.

You know what doesn't help with GAS? Musicradar.com. That site has those top 10 lists, and they seem to be endless so I spend ages on there and now I want a Mesa Boogie Mark V.

You guys listened to them?


I own an album actually but I haven't really been listening to them of lately. I don't really care for them as much as I previously to be honest though. They're a good little band though.

Quote:
The thing I liked about Rival Sons' debut is that I could hear elements of all kinds of classic rock in the styles of Led Zep, the Doors, the Beatles, Deep Purple, etc., but mixed in ways that I didn't expect. Its like they scrambled the best of the 1970s together to get their sound.


I debut was pretty damn good. Pressure and Time was a ****ing masterpiece IMO. The new album is about at the same level as Before the Fire for me. Really damn good but not quite on par with Pressure and Time. I have yet to purchase the debut but I have the other two.

Anyone who love classic rock, more specifically Zeppelin, should 100% invest in looking this band up.

Fuzz rulez.


I can do that with my Big Muff to thicken the tone, but it doesn't really sound like a light gain. It's an interesting sound.

Whenever I hear someone say that they play exclusively a single genre, I always assume that they're just a terrible guitarist.

Yea I had a listen to a few songs. They seem quite good. From first impressions I do prefer Band of Skulls but I'll be listening to all their stuff in the next few days so that could change .

They're quite big now you know, I wouldn't be surprised if they start to dominate at some point.

Yea, it's not the same though. I have a Little Big Muff and it doesn't sound as good with the volume slightly turned down as the Fuzz Face.

The Muffs are epic at being loud and fuzzy.

Yeah, which is exactly why I'm looking for a Fuzz Face.

I should have reserved a few posts so I could have put everyone's list on the first page, adding and deleting then as they are aquired/sold.

Doh.

Nice! I want a Bassman and a JCM800 Combo.

My Super 60 hums when it has the reverb on. Very weird. It hums with gain but I think that's normal because of the feedback.

I get my Strat back with the Lace Gold Pickguard installed tomorrow. Are you still getting one Rooster?

Ended up trading that strat for a bunch of custom made pedals.

Tremolo, Fuzzface clone, Klon Centaur / Zendrive clone combo, Phase 90 clone, FX Loop Blender, noise generator, and all 6 hand-wired and hand painted. The Klon/Zen sounds rad.

What Strat was it? Were you willing to trade it because you got the G&Ls?
