    NPD Wampler SLOstortion

    I'm so happy with this pedal! It's so tweakable. The reason I chose this over the Triple Wreck was the SLOstortion seemed to have more mid presence and clarity. I really like the brutal amount of gain on tap while remaining 'smooth'. Four note chords retain individual note clarity at max gain...

    NPD - ISP Decimator

    Hey! After last nights rehearsal, I feel compelled to start a thread regarding this pedal. I run an EMG loaded Les Paul into either a Marshall DSL50, Peavey 6505+ or a Bogner Alchemist, and boost them with a modded TS9. As you can imagine this can result in feedback at high volumes. I...

    Help! Noise Problem!

    Hey guys, I could do with some input on a problem I'm having. I'm currently running EMG 81/85's in my favourite LP. It's a solderless wiring system. What I'm getting at the moment is a lot of noise that resembles someone blowing down an open mic. Before it would be present for a second before I...

    My MXR ZW-OD Died...

    Was just trying out my new BBE Opto-Stomp compressor and my ZW-OD completely died. The light started staying on whether the pedal was bypassed or not, then when bypassed it only lets a minimal amount of signal through. When turned on it lets all the signal through, but adds a nice high pitched...

    The Mercy House

    Just thought I'd plug a band who are friends of mine, as they just got their first EP out on iTunes UK/US. The Mercy House are definately worth a listen if you're a fan of Hard Rock/90's Grunge/Metal. You may have heard them if you have read Metal Hammer or Classic Rock magazines over the last...

    Tonerider Generator Pickups

    I'm thinking of getting a Tonerider Generator pickup to replace my SD Alnico 2 in the bridge of my LP. It's too low output for the music I play now and a bit muddy. I've looked at the equivalent (price, output and voicing) pickup from Irongear, the "Hot Slag":shock: (I think the toneriders are...

    BBE Sonic Maximizer

    Hey guys, What is your opinion of the BBE Sonic Maximizer Stomp pedal? From what I've been reading, it seems a lot of people class it as an essential piece of kit. I've been looking into it and I think I would have to import one to get the best price (even after importy duty!). But is it really...
