  • Your best gear purchase of 2017 ?

    For me it was buying another 1986 Carvin X-100B amp, a second VHT Pitt Bull, two Crate Power Blocks and restoring an old 1968 Univibe to complete working order.

    What's yours ?
    How many guitarists does it take to screw in a lightbulb ? Five , one to screw it in , hit the switch and four to sit around bragging how much better they could have done it !!!! 😱👹😲

    Mostly just bought some boring gear for the FOH system. A Behringer X-32 rack and a pair of JBL PRX812s

    Oh, and a new trailer! lol.

      I bought a hydrometer for my Taylor guitar that I also got this year for next to nothing from a guy who was in need of some quick and necessary cash. The action was awful high so I thought the best thing to do before rushing off to my super expensive luthier is get the humidity right on the guitar. I also swapped out a crappy nut on one of my teles with a tusq nut which is a great improvement.

      Martin HD-28!

      It's been my dream guitar for as long as I can remember.

        I love those amps. I have been thinking about buying one while you can still find one reasonably priced. My best gear purchase for 2017 was a damaged Fender American Strat I picked up for $115. A repair to the body and a fresh coat of paint and it looks as good as new.

          I bought a lot of PA gear this year, Probably my QSC touchmix -30 was the best.

                I had someone buy me a Martin OM-42, long story so I won't bore everyone, the guitar is still being made at the factory but it happened in 2017. Here is one but not the one they are making. I would mention his name but I don't think he wants me to, too humble about life, his pineal gland is wide open. Needless to say I can't wait to get it.

                  Hardly, I actually have a few real honest to goodness player friends, why is everything always about sex? If your comment was just a joke, then I apologize, but some friends are just really great friends. He knew I needed another guitar, he is one heck of a musician, he knows I am a fingerpicker, and we cherish our friendship and life itself. Friends like him are very hard to find. Thanks for the compliment on the geeeetar.

                  My apologies, of course it was a joke. Nice geetar. Actually, very nice geetar. Nicer than most geetars. I have friends that are players too. I love 'em, but they will have to buy their own Martin's. At least Martin's like that.

                Got a mandolin. Found out that I really enjoyed playing it. Lots of fun.

                  You have mentioned the pineal gland a few times here. You you aware of this website?

                    Nope, but I just looked at it, very nice site, I will look further at it. In the meantime I found a quote in it that I just used in my signature. Thank you very much Moog. I found out about decalcification of the pineal when I went on a 40 day fast 6 months ago, after going full bore into veganism, never looked back after ridding my life of the fluoride poisoning from the local water. Thanks again.

                  I got a Two Notes Torpedo Live, and it has absolutely changed my approach to playing live gigs. It is the only load box / cabinet emulator I have ever tried that actually sounds like the real thing, and it has made gigging 100% easier. I can finally run direct and have it sound like my Bogner or Marshall, which had been an unobtainable goal of mine for years....

                    I've tried a couple of their boxes and was really impressed.

                  I bought a Gibson SG and a couple of cheap large diaphragm condensers.

                    I've owned my Gibson SG for over 30 years now, an she's still one of my all-time favourite guitars. What mics did you get? I'm looking for a better large diaphragm than my old Red5 (which is actually pretty good).
