so i was out and about on my day off and decided to stop by my local music shop to chat with my buddy. well a long story short i ended up walking out with a new toy.....

a new cab!!!! so long heavy 4x12 cabs and my crappy beat up old carvin 2x12!!! i picked up a blackstar ht venue series 2x12. wooo!!!

review thingy:

overall so far its pretty nice. pretty light. the construction is almost flawless the speaker cloth is not pulled tight enough u can notice it in the pictures. its loaded with celestion 70/80's (which i kinda have taken a liking to) and its a semi closed back. the best part is i only paid $268 and its brand new. not too shabby!!!

i also picked up a new skb powered board from a buddy! and my wah barely fits but its alright.

lastly i ditched the Memory Toy i picked up a few months ago. i just couldnt get a decent delay out of it. it was way to touchy and noisy. so i traded that in at GC and put the green i got from it towards a TC Electronics Transition.

review:

this is a great pedal! its got so many options to it. first of all its one of those tc electronics tone prints that you can plug into your computer to save and edit or download new sounds. pretty neat. but i dont use it like that, heck any sound u could ever want u can make on the pedal.

here is a list of the functions:
5 different styles of echo and delay such as duct to fat and my fav morf. 3 reverb/echos and a looper. i dont know how long the loop is but its a pretty nice addition to the pedal. it also has a small 3 way selector to modify your repeats by 1,2, or 3. awesome pedal bought it for 90 bucks



so yeah its been a decent month for gear up next is a new guitar or bass

Nice grab, it does look sharp.

I will say I think you are a bit crazy liking 70/80s

I can't say much though I didn't mind my Rocket 50s when I had them, they get just as much trash talked about them. Even so, the peavey really warms up with a good speaker, I loved mine with most any eminence.
I'm just a kickin' and a gougin' in the mud and the blood and the beer.

You mean the baffles? I heard that too.

yeah i know sadly now with the addition of the blackstar the peavey downgraded itself to a hybrid amp

i know i might catch some flack for not minding 70/80 speakers

Who cares if you like them and other people dont. Opinions are just opinions and internet has no shortage of them, all of them are different and opposing each other day by day. You build your own sound with parts you like and thats the important part. Happy new gear day!

i like them because they have what seems to be a flat sound which makes me work a little more to make what i hear in my head come through.

im not worried about what others think either but thanks!

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Tone is in the fingers.

What you really need is a new amp.

I have been hearing about MG amps lately. I have heard good about them, but only a few times have they been talked about here.
