is it ok to talk maps here?
ok well, anyway ......
soOoo I go to this guitar show and there was nothing good. I end up buying a purple jewel light for $4 and a y cable mic cord for $5 and an old Elvis style original shure mic for $110 with teh propriatary cord and some DVD about some Camaro and Challenger killer gore movie from the 70s for $2 .....
.... and then when I thought all hope was lost, I find this Ibanez toob map for $200
I'm thinking it was from teh 80s but it's really from like 2010. Soo, we plug it in and it has 2 12AX7s and 2 6V6 tube ..... sounded HUGE! Warm clean fender tones .... and it has an Ibanex TS9 tubescreamer built inside of it! so I hit that and holy CRAP is this a good sounding map! .... and then on top of the over drive boost, there is a solo boost, so you basically have clean, crunch and solo out of one map!
Now mind you, I have vintage Hiwatts, Orange Retros, vintage Marshalls, Mesa boogies, vintage Fenders and so I pretty much know when a mop has good tone, and this thing jsut RIPS ! ! !
sooo I pay the man $200 for the map and footswitch and get it home. It sounds even 1,000,000,0%better through my Mesa 2x12 cab which was impossible until I actually did it!
The thing is, it's chassis mounted 6V6 t0obz are cheap-o chinese t0obx and I can't wait to slap some USA RCAs in there .... 12AX7s as well.
Wow, just when you thought the world was falling apart, there are little gems out there that still give you hope!
Better hurry, with inflation taking off like it is, these will be $500 by the time you read this
