    Boss TU-6 buffered…?

    I appeal to the knowledgeable cats here on this forum. I know that every Boss pedal is buffered, which is great, but I’ve had an old Boss TU-6 around the house for years however since it’s an old one (my guess it’s late 80s/mid 90s…?) does anyone here know whether it’s buffered or not? I’ve...

    New fly rig: MXR EVH 5150 + MXR Micro Chorus.

    I've said it before, I'm not that much into pedals, or not into using a lot of them anyway, however I do have a big pedalboard which I use for big gigs and which, admittedly, has its use and it's major fun to use too(!), nevertheless I have two smaller pedalboards/fly rigs which I actually...

    Heritage H150, a truly superior single cut.

    I don't know why but most people seem to overlook Heritage products, however this below is the first, properly great guitar I’ve owned, a 20+ yrs old Heritage H150 Les Paul, which few months ago I fitted with a great set of “Beano”...

    Standard Boss SD-1...surprise!

    I own a whole plethora of dirt boxes, I don't want to mention any specific brand however they include some extremely sought after vintage ones (and I mean real "Holy Grails"!) plus some highly esteemed and desirable boutique ones, and I have to say that they all deserved all the praise they keep...

    FUCHS Plush Drive - astounding & outstanding.

    I own a whole plethora of "dirt" boxes, all top of the range sought after stuff whether vintage or boutique, however I felt that I needed the option of something a little more...refined, moreover I started rediscovering my Jazz-y roots (Steely Dan, Chick Corea, etc etc) and while listening again...

    Gibson 498T - 490R pickups/Les Paul Custom; perfect combo.

    When getting a new guitar the pickups are the first thing I look into, more often than not they get replaced with "better" ones and, truth be told, so far it has been an improvement, however I recently purchased this Les Paul Custom and after playing it for a little over week I've come to the...

    2017 Custom Shop Les Paul Custom - 70s heaven & beyond!

    I always greatly desired a Les Paul Custom, and it needed to be a black one(!) then last Sunday against few odds I suddenly managed to acquire one, a 2017 Custom Shop (does that make it a Custom Custom...? ). Isn't it funny how sometimes we hunt for guitars, then some just "come into our...

    80s Marshall The Guv'nor MK1, made in England - "the" Les Paul pedal!

    Last week I took delivery of this most potent & juicy Overdrive pedal, and boy, does it even exceed my high expectations!! I used to have an early "Blues Breaker MK1" which was a fantastic pedal to say the least, and which I always took with me either for live or session work, however...

    Epiphone Korina SG - It's getting better all the time!

    A while ago, as a present for our anniversary, my wife bought me this 1999 Korina SG: of course she thought "with a guitar I can't go wrong, of course he's gonna like it...!" And I did however when it arrived the neck resembled Robin Hood's weapon of choice, nevertheless I worked on it...

    OX4 "Beano" pickups

    I've had a set of OX4's in my #1 Les Paul, a Custom Shop '58 Reissue, for the last 5 years now and frankly I couldn't be happier; the guitar itself keeps getting better & better, more responsive, warmer, and those pickups fit like a glove, or better even. Anyway, I've also had this Heritage H150...

    Fulltone Fat Boost V1 - an underdog classic!

    After having owned few Fulltone pedals, two Fulldrive2, one Fulldrive3 and a GT-500, I've kept a Fulldrive2 MOSFET which is the one the suits my needs more than all the other, however I've always been impressed by the Boost section on all of them, especially on the Fulldrive3 and the GT-500, so...

    Seymour Duncan 805, best TS ever...?

    I admit, I do own a plethora of dirt boxes, all sorts from vintage to reissues, from standard production to boutique, and among them I’ve had an original ‘83 Ibanez 808, obviously an industry standard, a great pedal which for years I used regularly on sessions and live work, and also a...

    Fulltone GT-500 Fulltone: a name, a guarantee.

    I admit it, I own a whole plethora of pedals, some boutique while some "big name standard production", and there's absolutely nothing wrong with that, for example my MXR Micro Chorus is among the best ever, and quite cheap, as is my BOSS FZ-5...! I've always had a soft spot for anything...

    In defense of the "humble" SD '59

    I have to admit that, as my gear pays my bills, I own all top quality stuff (a 20 yrs. old The Heritage H150, a Custom Shop 1058 Reissue, and other guitars of similar quality) however few weeks ago I had the chance to purchase a black 2nd hand "Made in China" Epiphone Les Paul Custom; nothing...

    Catalinbread RAH - among the best, ever!

    It takes a lot for me to even be seriously impressed, as I'm lucky enough to own a whole plethora of pedals and among them are some of the most sought after "dirt" pedals, however I have to say that I'm absolutely blown away by this one. It's marketed as a "Jimmy Page in a box" kind of thing...

    3 Les Paul's & a pedalboard.

    At first I wasn't exactly sure whether this was the right place to post this thread or not, but then I though "hold on, what's more TONE than all of this???" hence, here it is in the Tonefreaks section! Pictured here are my 3 Les Paul's; from left to right, 1) 2006 Epiphone LP Custom with...

    Keeley Super Phat Mod

    I've been a big fan of Keeley products ever since acquiring their version of the Boss DS-1 three or four years ago, which is without a doubt the one pedal that got me out of troublesome situations more than any other (i.e. you fly to a gig, you're promised a Marshall and you find "God knows...

    Cusack Screamer Fuzz - a must try!

    As we guitar players are all "dirt box junkies" I've been meaning to write about this pedal for a while, and now the time has arrived! Cut a long story short, one of my students is both a super cool guy and a true "pedal geek", Klon & Klones and everything in between, he's got 'em all! Once in a...

    1999 Epiphone Korina SG - wow!

    Ok, the story goes that a couple of weeks ago I was at my laptop when my wife asks me "what are you looking at...?" so I point to this guitar, which had been on my radar for few days but only out of curiosity, so she says "look, I'll buy it for you!" and, nonchalantly, she hands her credit card...
