So, I've been gear whoring it up the last month and have lots of new goodies. I'll do the guitar in the first post, mapz in the second and pedals whenever I get around to it.

First up is a Suhr Modern 7.



Shit is the bomb. Easily the nicest playing 7 string I've ever played. Set up was perfect right out of the box. The pickups are a bit dark though so I'll be replacing them with some BKP Painkillers. Body is made of mahogany, neck is mahogany, fret board is pao ferro.

It weighs like 5 pounds. Crazy light and delicious. Sounds massive unplugged. The OFR stays in tune nicely. Lubz this shit.

Price paid: $2899 shipped
E-peen:
Rhodes Gemini
Fryette Ultra Lead
Peavey 6505
THD Flexi 50

Gibson R0 Prototype
EBMM JP13 Rosewood
Fender CS Mary Kaye

I'll do mapz in order of increasing epicness. First up is an Orange Thunderverb 50.



This shit is also the bomb. Cleans are kind of meh, especially compared to my other new amps but the gain channel is really thick and tasty. Perfect for doom/sludge/stoner stuff. Reverb sounds really nice. Nicely built, kinda heavy. The shape control on channel B is surprisingly useful and effective. No need for a 3 band EQ.

Price paid: $1100 shipped

Next is a CAA OD100 Standard.



This amp is awesome. Really nice hot rodded Marshall gain channel. Can do everything up to VH and then some. Then kick in the built in tube boost and it can do modern metal no problem. No joke, the boosted second channel nails Mastodon's tone on Crack the Skye. Just flat out awesome. Really articulate with some snarly mids. Low end is simply massive. You'll shit bricks when you hear it.

The cleans are also to die for. As good as the best Fender Twin I've ever played. Just really pristine and sparkly with just the right amount of compression. Honestly, the amp is worth the price for either channel. The fact that both are absolutely killer is just icing on the cake.

Price paid: $1900 shipped

Last amp is a Diezel Hagen.



These are fairly new, just released last summer (mine's number 18). IMO, it's Peter Diezel's masterpiece. All 4 channels are extremely usable, the cleans being as good as those of the CAA even. The second channel covers hot rodded Marshall stuff, the third gets super br00t4l and the fourth is just outrageous. Massive amounts of gain but an ass ton of clarity. You can dime the gain on channel 4 and play 13 chords and hear every note. For when you wanna do jazz with lots of gain.

It's got 3 FX loops. One series always on, one series switchable and a parallel. Two switchable master volumes. Lots of really cool features.

It's got a really nice low mid emphasis that I love. Super fat. The lows are massive as well, though not quite as in your face as the CAA.

Price paid: $3600 shipped

Hartman Flanger, shit is awesome. Crazy lush, nails David Gilmour and Andy Summers tones. It's really big though.

Price paid: $200 shipped



Blackout Effectors Whetstone, shit is also awesome. Does every phase tone you could want. Only downside is it's ****ing massive.



Skinpimp Buzzaround, really massive sounding fuzz. Like a really tight Tone Bender that can get both smoother and gnarlier.



BJFe Sea Blue EQ, adds a bit of sparkle and niceness to my cleans. Kind of expensive for what it does but it's cool. Looks pretty too. Finish is really fragile though.



Maxon ST-9, it's like the best Tubescreamer ever. It's similar to the TS9/808/etc. but with an active mid control that boosts a frequency (variable from 300Hz to 2kHz) 8dB pre-clipping. Super rare, only made in 1984 in limited quantities.

Price paid: $260 shipped



Dr. Scientist The Elements, really br00t4l distortion that can also serve as a clean boost, EQ, low gain drive, fuzz, etc. Does everything well, really low noise, awesome build quality, sexy graphics.

Price paid: $190 shipped





Diamond Memory Lane 2, really nice analog delay with switchable delay times and tap tempo. Really warm, really nice build quality. Very sexy gold finish.

Skreddy Cognitive Dissonance MKIII, best Muff I've ever played. Really smooth and articulate but also sounds ****ing massive. Low noise and nice build too.

Empress Compressor, best compressor ever. Really transparent, low noise, great feature set.



Eventide Space, best reverb ever. Does everything. Some really spacey sounds available in this one.



Analog Man Beano Boost, really nice treble booster with mid and flat boost options. Nice PTP build, NKT transistors.

Price paid: One Fuzz Face build and $30 cash

The four D*A*M pedals (Meathead Deluxe, Super Bee, Drag'n'Fly, Sonic Titan) are all really nice. Low noise, massive sounding stoner fuzzes and distortion.

ISP Decimator, makes my shit quiet.



ZVex Wah Probe, really nice sounding wah. Don't know why people say it's unpractical. It's really easy to use.

Providence Anadime Chorus, really lush chorus without the cheese.

Providence Sonic Drive, like a nice Tubescreamer. Debating about whether or not I'll keep this one.

I like this thread. None of this trolly "Oh, there's a brown box in the mail. Whatever could it be? Here's a shot of the headstock, I think it's a Squier" bullshit. Just straight to the point, condensed awesomeness.

Thanks for sharing.

Wow. A tube amp so advanced it doesn't even have a power/standby switches. Let me guess, you turn it on with brainwaves, right?

Sick!

Still wanna try a Hagen, but I probably won't replace my Herbert with one if I like it better, until the prices come down a bit and I can get a near even swap

Was kinda disappoint on the Suhr though The headstock looked cool, then the body was just plain

Can you give any good commentary on how the Hagen compares/contrasts with the VH4? I guess, specifically how tight/responsive it is?
