  • How to get more high quality builders to post on here and answer your questions 101

    1. Don't be a jackass to them.  The real ones are here to help you.

    2. They probably don't care one way or another about your opinion if you haven't played their gear.

    3. Don't be a jackass

    4. If you've played their stuff, shoot up some links where you've used it.  Knowledge sans application is useless....we like to see the gear being played and are very grateful when it is.

    5. A billion posts on a forum don't matter much in the real world.  Analog cred is where it's at. Get out and play, develop some perspective and then critique when you know what you're talking about.

    6. Did I mention, don't be a jackass?

    If this offends you, you've probably earned it and deserve the karmic slap out of your skinny jeans.  Tone doesn't matter....it's the look that's important! 

    If it doesn't, kudos for keeping it real and staying on here through the thick and thin of the small bus crowd.  You will be rewarded, and already are, with a life worth living and a passion that will always prevail, in spite of those that don't.  Give yourself a round of applause and keep doing what you're doing!  It's the only reason that people like myself are on here at all and it is the only proper force driving creative self-expression and will make your art immortal.

      What is 'being trolled'?  Just idiots with nothing else to do?  Sorry, man, I'm not used to any kind of forum nomenclature.

    When I was little I had an alien-shaped soft toy that looked like a bit like the snapperhead and when you threw it against the wall it said "i am totally spaced out".

    Thank you for this insightful and valuable information. It will be a precious commodity in all my dealings with high quality builders.

    Thank you for giving me permission to give myself a round of applause!

    Another pedal is the only proper force that is keeping my art from being immortal.

    Yes, you mentioned it. You just didn't follow that advice yourself.

              High quality builders have better stuff to do. There's a DYI thread here on this forum that has a ton of input from builders who are too busy to post here anymore. If you think you have an awesome pedal send it out for review, send it to people that post demos, get a tour box up and running, create more pedals if you're bored. Participate in fundraisers, etc... Most of all good luck marketing an overdrive in a sea of overdrives.

              Is there a big muff pedal that's more transparent than the EHX ones? maybe one that a boutique builder makes? I don't mind if it doesnt have the original logo and all that. The sound is the important thing.

               

              if anyone can help me out it would be appreciated.

                  My favorite moment from devi was when she Vlogged with her transgender lesbian girlfriend about how much she hated HC.

                  She posted after that, too.

                  Yes, transgender lesbians.

                  howard davis had a meltdown too. because he came here and flipped out about getting banned from the gear page. That was kinda funny, too.
