Surprised no one has mentioned the Wampler Ego yet!
I tried many compressors before settling on the Wampler. I wanted the pedal to use with regular guitar playing, but also to add a little transparent boost in sustain with my open tuned guitar used for slide.
Nothing sounded better than the...
50's wiring with some new pots for volume and tone will give you a much better sound, especially when rolling off highs with the tone controls.
He's absolutely right, you might find a better sound by doing the wiring first, and then you could use the extra funds for other upgrades...
yeah, I got a kick out of that too. He's the last person who could try and say he's a purist about tone without using pedals.
Hey man, there is nothing wrong with using pedals, just don't frickin lie about it!!!
I have wanted one of these for SO long, however I went nuts buying pedals earlier this year, and no just don't have the current funds to get one. I want the black version.
I love how light-weight the guitar is, and with the PUP configuration and the push-pull pots, you can get a tele/strat...
I think I saw a pic in the latest Rolling Stone of Joe Perry and Steven Tyler, and I noticed on the guitar Perry was holding, the pickups were really sunken into the body.
Can't seem to find pic online, but if you get Rolling Stone, check it out.
Never seen PUP's that low before....
I would put delay at the end. If you do enough searching, you'll see most people put the tuner at the very end. I've A/B both tuner pedal positions, and I notice that if I put it first, it seems to squash the tone abit.
I would put your WAH first, then follow with all your OD pedals, then boost pedals, ending with tuner.
You'll have to mess around with the order of OD pedals, but probably won't make much of a difference, unless of course you use two or more OD pedals at the same time.
I bought the Snark SN-2 last year, and I love it. It is super quick to tune up, and compared with some of my other pedal tuners, it's spot on for accuracy.
What I really like about it is the "vibration" mode. This bypasses the microphone, which is nice if your in a noisy situation for...
I've got the same PUP's in my Epi LP Custom with caps and pots from Jonsey, and I love the sound I get out of the guitar now!
The PUP's themselves are really frickin hot, so I guess it depends on what you play, but I find the guitar works for everything except jazz/country. It's not BAD...
same cable all throughout except from pedal to pedal (patch).
Not to hijack, but thinking today, how would this work with a wireless system? Would you need two units?....
guitar>transmitter>receiver to pedalboard>pedal out to transmitter>receiver to amp
Hope that makes sense
messing with my Digitech multi-fx the other day, I noticed a setting for the expression pedal called "Dive Bomb". Sure enough, had me off and running.
Kind of a kick butt effect anyways. Gonna try and get more use out of it than just that damn BK song.
Bass player from TOOL used a dive...
I wouldn't get stuck on the model number of this chip. Over the past 30-40 years, there have been many manufacturers of this chip, and they all use the same model number.
My amp tech has a butt load of these chips. There is more to the original pedal than that "holy grail" of a chip...
yeah, that's it, except the mono version.
Weird, I've got no issues with mine, and I move around quite abit. Depends on how long ago you got yours, they might have updated the construction. They go through updates every 6 months or so it seems.
I use high quality audio cables from monoprice.com
Site has nothing to do with guitars or amps for that matter, they mostly deal with home theater.
However, their 1/4 to 1/4 "audio cables" are the best I've ever used, and the prices are crazy cheap....I mean seriously CRAZY cheap.
