I was just gonna save everything for one epic post, but I couldn't contain myself. I've been doing lots of wheeling and dealing and trading lately. Most of it is done, although I'm ready to see the final piece of the puzzle get here.

First one is....

(Invalid img)

The Semaphore! I've always been a huge Catalinbread Fanboy, and this one certainly doesnt dissapoint. This thing is probably the most versatile trem I have had the fortune of being able to play. Everything from painfully slow to ring mod fast is there. The level control is nice too, as its nice to have no volume drop, or even volume boost. Ran it at a show the other night and it sounded just right in the mix on trem parts.

Next one to hit the board was

I havent messed with much Subdecay stuff, but this one shows that Brian builds some wicked pedals. I am a phase junky and this one has a unique voicing for sure. Extremely versatile but easy to dial in....I think shes a keeper too. Now to try the Subdecay F-Bomb

Then I snagged

(Invalid img)

The Decimator! I've needed one of these for a while now. Sure beats an NS-2 and sounded better than my old HUSH Super C. Keeps mysustain intact, and I like being able to switch off my Noise Surpressors on the fly. Great for the riff machines out there!

That wasn't enough though, so I also grabbed

(Invalid img)

yes it says bass on the front, but it nails the old green Soviet Muff sound, and it sounds smooth and creamy on guitar. Everyone knows what these sound like. I do like the dry signal on switch too! Nice feature for sure.


Keep posted for the Grand Finale!!! I will give you a hint though. I traded my handwired Marshall for it, so its big!

And now for the grand finale!








This beauty made it in. A Valvetech Hayseed 30! I havent even gotten to play it yet. It sure is beautiful though. Half Power Switch, master volume on the back with Master Volume and Master Volume Bypass. The speakers are British made Celestion AlNiCo Blues. I can't wait to hear it roar through my Sunn cabs!

i know nothing of that amp.

but seeing that it comes with two speakers that outprice several good amps by themselves, i imagine that it's awesome. nobody puts alnico blues into a mediocre amp.

Thought the same thing. Congrats TS, it definitely looks great... Are you buying furniture like AcousticMirror, or have you actually played it yet?

I will open it up this weekend when I get home. Gutshots and family pics will be up. I hate not havin a camera besides the one on my cell phone. We have a couple shows before I get home again. I will say it sounds STUPID GOOD! Like its the perfect marriage between my 18 watt Marshall and my old AC30....A lot more gain than I expected. It is very reminiscent of a Matchless Chieftain type tone

I kinda want to try a Greenback alongside on of the AlNICo blues to see if it can get closer to the Matchles type thickness.

As for the Decimator, this particualr one cant do the X connection. The next model up can, but I havent had an amp with an effects loop in over a year, so I dont need it. It definitely leaves your tone intact, but can even tame my Fuzz Factory

Lols. Probably because I posted the Valvetech two days later.....

The other thing I love is that it takes pedals like a champ

I don't know anything about that amp...

But goddamn, when I saw what was hiding in the back of it, I needed to change my boxers. HNSD, that stuff is awesome, and I'll bet your pedalboard blows mine out of the water XP
You know, you're probably reading this saying "Hey, I'm bored, maybe this'll be funny?"
It's not. Too bad. No, I am not refunding you those 6 seconds of your life. So :P

Check em out. pretty much a poor man's Matchless

As for the pedals i'm kind of an effects junkie, I have been wheeling and dealing forever to get there lol

it's definitely hot-rodded. Like an AC30 with a bit thicker voicing and lots of gain. I do know that this one has a couple mods so I don't know how it compares to the stock version. This one also has the EF86 channel. Jumping the inputs really pushes it into Matchless territory. I think I may compare it side by side with a Chieftain over at Fat Sound to see what the differences are

Exactly! Although this one does have a Master Volume on the back. It also has a Master Volume bypass switch. My favorite tones are all with the MV bypassed

I would have to wonder how that would sound. It does have 12AX7 preamp tubes too

I run it with the EF86 Channel and the second channel jumpered together

I resisted the Semaphore for a long time...I wish I would have picked it up sooner. It is a great sounding trem
