Having freed up some regular money in my budget (I quit smoking in NY), I have been indulging my neverending tone quest. I have an original prog rock band that gigs occasionally and a classic rock cover band that works pretty steady. Recent upgrades: 2017 Les Paul worn brown with 498s; EHX Soul Food; Eminence Cannabis Rex for the 1x12 openback I use on cover band gigs most of the time. They have made a difference. What have you found on your tone quest?
