so i got this beauty off Gumtree






Brothers in arms



i was looking around ebay/gumtree/loads of forums for a backup 7 string, i stumbled upon this on gumtree and just had to have it,

the only real difference between this and my hellraiser is the pickups, i wasn't too fussed about this really as i've always been wanting to try blackouts and this was an ideal opportunity,

i haven't really had a chance to play it other than 10 minutes before work but my impression from those 10 mins was that the guitar sounds ****ing heavy, i would go into further but its a tad too late to be blasting out riffs, i shall inform you on my opinion tomorrow, would be interesting to get a comparison of the emgs and blackouts back to back on a recording (its a shame that im shit at recording)

now to the New Pedal day (which actually arrived a week ago but ive felt to lazy to post about it)

the infamous isp decimator



and my current line up of pedals
(korg pitchblack, boss ge7, mxr smartgate, maxon od 808, isp decimator, mxr super comp)


this pedal, teamed with the smartgate makes my rig completely silent when im not playing and allows all my tone out when i do, i highly recommend it for everyone even if you don't play high gain stuff

Nice, been looking for a cheap 7 myself (though a C7 isn't "cheap" cheap)
And that Decimator is shiny as shit!

HNGD!
Where's Waldo?

yeah the c7's aren't cheap but they are very reasonable second hand (the blackjack i just got was in immaculate condition, still with the stickers on for half the price of new)

they are sick, ive played the ibby 7321 and it doesn't even compare. if you want a 7 string that has very nice low end, cuts through the mix very well and is reasonably priced, than the c7 is where to go

HNGD

and how is the decimator in combination with another noise gate?

I already have one decimator that i run in the fx loop and it does its job very well, but at band practice i still sometimes still get a small amount of feedback (just enough to be slightly annoying you know between songs if i dont mute the strings) and i can't turn up the decimator anymore without it gating my preamp.

so basically i want to run one infront of the amp and one in the fx loop
