If she digs the fuzz tones you should consider getting her a distortion modeler pedal. She can try out a dozen that way and see what she really likes.she's into literally everything . but enjoys the fuzz tones the most . her rhythm playing is getting pretty good . as far as delay __ that's more my style
speaking of . we were watching The Dakh Daughters again this morning . if you're not interested in the song , just fast forward to 2:40 . where the girl is jumping up and down on a stage riser in combat boots , to create more bass
didn't even know that they made such a thing . just a modeler with different distortions I'm guessing . I'll have to look into that . even though I know that it's more about fuzz and overdrive vs. distortion that she likesIf she digs the fuzz tones you should consider getting her a distortion modeler pedal.

.I know what you mean, but what are our alternatives? Sometimes you need an "expert" even though you're rolling the dice with possible incompetence, arrogance or a hidden agenda.
I've been going to the same cardiologist since my heart attack in ' 12. He's the head of cardiology at St. Joseph. Very knowledgable Chinese American. Doesn't really listen though. He's had me taking 800 mg of magnesium oxide for a few years to minimize afib. Unfortunately the last year every time they check my defibrillator memory I'm in afib 30% of the time, which is significant. The magnesium was causing unpleasant side effects which I questioned him about every time. Totally dismissed my questions and complaints.
Then in August he prescribed a drug to address the afib. I asked if there were side effects. " Oh lots" he said very casually. " we'll have to monitor your eyes, your lungs, your kidneys very carefully every 6 months".
I was shocked, and he was gone. I usually get to see him for 15minutes twice a year and that's it.
When I get home and Google the drug it has a black box warning recommending the patient be hospitalized for observation when starting it. Not a word about that from him. So rather than take it I go to my PCP for a referral for a second opinion. They read my defibrillator, and yes..afib 30% of the time. I ask him about the Amiodarone. He verifies it's hazards but suggests another drug that deson't possibly destroy my organs. I ask him about the magnesium. He has no idea why I'm taking such a massive dose and says discontinue it when I explain the side effects.
So I stop it cold, reluctantly. He also refers me to an electro cardiologist to see if I'm a candidate for an ablation to address the afib. Something my cardiologist never even mentioned. I go. The doc says I'm definitely a candidate. It could eliminate my afib completely. And any reduction in the instance of afib is a big plus in extending my life..
The max recommended dose of magnesium is 350mg. I was taking 800. And oh yeah...the eletrocardiologist in reading my defibrillator said...ZERO afib for 30 days. My last reading had been 30 days before and I had stopped the magnesium the same day. One of the side affects of magnesium overdose is slow heart rate. Also blood pressure drop, which I had been experiencing. Wtf?
The Korg AX3G has terrific fuzz models (and ring mod and flange and echo and etc etc) for short money.didn't even know that they made such a thing . just a modeler with different distortions I'm guessing . I'll have to look into that . even though I know that it's more about fuzz and overdrive vs. distortion that she likes
Exactly. I complained of that and the first cardiologist poo-pooed it. (Pun intended.) He acted as if it wasn't possible. I mean, c'mon. Even laymen know it's effects..
Is this guy a doctor or a veterinarian?
And 800mg of magesium oxide?
Can you say "Riding the Porcelain Honda"?
Here's the first one that came to mind. Didn't watch the vid so you might find better ones. I use fuzz/dist/OD models on a Zoom pedal and on IPad aps. I think they're great and I had many of the analog versions in the past.didn't even know that they made such a thing . just a modeler with different distortions I'm guessing . I'll have to look into that . even though I know that it's more about fuzz and overdrive vs. distortion that she likes
I'll mod guitars. Some old old amps. But pedals I don't see the point (for me) anymore. I already have more options than I can handle. And like software vs hardware synthesis, I'd rather use modelers for effects. That screen shot I posted...Bias Pedal allows me to modify discrete components and values to experiment if I want to build my own dist/OD/fuzz pedals. Or modulators, reverbs, or delays for that matter.any other circuit bender here ? raise your hands . Pretty sure that edro is one

I know for a fact there were dip switches involved . this one was built from the EHX circuit __ the switches giving the options on values / diodes
I might just build one . if I can find a good schematic . would be my go to way of thinking . and then I remind myself that I don't *need* any more projects
Called Steve's hardware casket the trunk of pain, but we used it to transport other tonnage when it weren't going up or down stairs.Remember them days of sore backs, skint knuckles & shouting at the singer for wandering off pretending he had to talk to the venue owner. Might have said before... The drummers big coffin of unfeasibly heavy hardware... Aww naw! Hated when I had to drag that bastid up multiple flights of staircases.
Thing is, if yer on tour & doing it every day, you become solid & made of steel within a week, no kidding.... Apart from the singer, grumblegumblegrrrbah.
Love em. Did not notice it in the first vid but thought that cello player looked familiar. My friend Susan would love one of those hats.some of those members are also in DakhaBrakha
Indeed. You sound like you need a new cardiologist. Now.Wtf?
.that's VERY close . the one I'm trying to find is in a silver box __ and twice the size . someone was explaining to me on the phone , about a " Royale " something overdrive
.I just thought it would make a unique gift idea
For goodness sake just get her a Helix Stomp. This is not a joke. You get (very good) models of all these, plus all this as well. But let's say you used nothing but the OD, distortion and fuzz stuff... now, is that bang for buck, or what?If she digs the fuzz tones you should consider getting her a distortion modeler pedal. She can try out a dozen that way and see what she really likes.
