Wow, so my weekend has been full of excitement. On friday, I traded an Akai Headrush E2 and a 70's MXR Phase 90 for this bad boy: the Electro-Harmonix HOG.

This thing is seriously unbelievable. I've only just started messing around with it, and I've already gotten quasi-violin and cello tone, Hammond B3 organ (sooooo cool!), and old school pipe organ, complete with volume swells from the Expression pedal. It's also got Whammy-style octave jumps and pitch shifts, wah, envelope, and this really cool feature called freeze-gliss that holds the chord you play, and then when you switch to another chord it slowly slides into it. Very very cool, easily my favorite pedal ever.

I record two quick one-take demos of some quick sounds I found, I'll make more soon. You can hear them in my mp3 section.

Later on that same friday night, I met with a guy to trade an Epi Les Paul with faulty wiring for not one but TWO vintage amps! The first is a 70's Traynor Studio Mate YGM-4, a 25 watt tube combo with tremelo and reverb. It's got four 8" speakers, and sounds really nice. However, I may be selling it tomorrow or possibly trading it for a Sunn Beta Lead (!!!).

He also traded me this 80's Marshall Lead 12, which is actually way cool! It'll be my practice amp while I'm at school.

The next day, saturday, I received a package that contained this amazing piece of hardware:

The Mastery Bridge. This will eventually go on my Warmoth Jazzmaster, but for right now I'm going to put it on my black Jazzmaster.

Then, I drove to pick up my favorite gain pedal I've ever used, the Catalinbread Dirty Little Secret!

I'll post clips of this guy eventually. But it sounds amazing, like a Marshall in a box just like everyone says!
But that’s not all!

A few hours later, I met up with this guy to pick up my new looper, since I traded my Akai. And it is quite the looper indeed!

It’s a Boomerang Phrase Sampler, an I’m still getting used to it, but I can easily say it kicks the Akai’s ass.

So, here’s a picture of my pedalboard in its current incarnation. Next week I’ll be ordering a DMB Lunar Echo analog delay and a new fuzz, most likely the Red Witch Fuzz God II or Dwarfcraft Shiva.

And here’s my buddies

Wow. Long post haha.

the Catalinbread looks nice

With pedals you can throw your guitar down for an impromptu pedal drone solo, whereas if you did that on a rack it would just look like you were programming your washing machine.

The more I look at that Hog...
The more I like it.
I do think it is good!
The fact is...
No matter how closely I study it.
No matter how I take It appart.
No matter how I break it down.
It remains consistant

What an amazing weekend. Congrats.

The HOG sounds beautiful. I'm interested in hearing a couple of tones from the DLS.

Hey guys, thanks for all the kind words! I know it looks like I spent a lot, but I almost always get my gear in trades. Here's a breakdown:

*chugga chugga bree bree chugga chugga chugga*

And here's a breakdown of the cost:

Akai Headrush: Bought for $120
70's MXR Phase 90: Bought for $50
So essentially $170 for the HOG

Mastery Bridge I bought direct from the company so $160

Boomerang: $250 (sold two pedals to offset the cost)

Got both amps in a trade

Catalinbread bought for $130, sold an old Boss pedal to pay for that

So, definitely not as expensive and costly as it may seem
Jesus, your life contains approximately 56x more win than mine does.

Seriously though, HNP&AD! You got a ton of good stuff there man.

That's great dude!

Sad to see the Billy Mays picture though. I was a huge fan of the dubs made with his infomercials...

This is such an awesome NGD at such a late time at night I can't quite comprehend how awesome it is
Love the tiny Marshall and the dirty little secret, very cool stuff
The hog is also very awesome but I'm less jealous 'cos I wouldn't really use it.

Very nice, my friend. How is the PS-2 working out for you? Get a chance to mess around with it?

Sick NGD, Adam. I will hate you forever if you trade the Traynor away, though.

[quote="'[BurnTheDusk"]']Boss pedals may be built like tanks but I would rather buy a cardboard box that is on my side than pay for a tank that is working against me.
Bringing it to a guy tomorrow to check out so he can possibly buy

Haven't heard back from the Sunn guy. Doubt it will happen.

In other news, just emailed a guy who's selling a vintage Echoplex for $175 (!!!)
I'm not too fond of Sunn Beta Leads TBH. I've used the Beta Lead Bass and it sounded pretty lame TBH (they are almost the same circuit-wise except for the reverb).

That board is far too big for my taste

I love those DLS's, and the Traynor is great.

My only complaint with my Lead 12 is how shallow and thin it sounds.
Looks like you had a good day!

I do want your Jazzmaster......

You're not truly playing guitar unless you know theory.
Way to feed my GAS for a HOG. I got the money, I just need to suck it up and buy one. if only they weren't so damn expensive. for the price of one pedal I could get 3 or 4.
Sig What?
