  1. Tom Holmes PAFs [video=youtube;XmC-zQPZ4Ng] Tom Holmes is the guru for PAF's. Ask Reverend William Gibbons and others and you'll understand. P.S. He designed the 57 Classic for Gibson. https://www.vintageguitar.com/3054/paf-test-run/
  2. For my R9 I went with a set of Tom Holme's.
  3. Good Chinese guitars. http://www.eastmanguitars.com/
  4. Junk and that's being nice. There are good Chinese guitars, that crap is not among them.
  5. Assume price is no object, I have quite a few things to sell so if something really is the best of the best I should be able to afford it. Skinpimps are fantastic if you're looking for older Tonebender vibes.
  6. Well {censored}, lately I've been noticing some thinning at the crown of my head, now I can see a slight bald spot starting It's not bad, but this kind of sucks... Anyone else have this happen? Just do what others do and shave your head.
  7. Gibson would head their own website "Breaking News" {censored}ers Jesus, you do realize that's a standard way of stating news on many business sites right?
  8. You want the 919, Superdelay is sooo yesterday. And that's your problem...
  9. Diceworks pedals always struck me as pedals that promise a lot of versatility, but in truth, not all those options are useful, and even sometimes are a jack-of-all-trades, but master-of-none sort of deal. His Fuzz Face/Tonebender one is one such case. The Fuzz Epic, i believe? It's not ideal to have on the fly FF/TB switching because the bias for the two circuit is different. So you're not going to get optimal tone for one of the circuits... Anyway, don't use more than the recommended voltage, unless it's stated it's okay. Not all caps are created equal, and putting a voltage in higher than what the cap is rated for is a sure fire way to break your pedal. You got lucky, most caps are rated for at least 12V...but Don't try it again. Not true in my case. All settings are useful. Now that said I will never recommenced Erich's pedals anymore because he has become a complete ass when trying to get your pedal and answering emails. But for the quality and tone it is better than any I've tried this side of a Cornish.
  10. I have a Muff Diver and love it. However I ran out of batteries today so in a pinch, I plugged in a positive tip 12 volt adaptor. It worked fine but the pedal calls for a 9 volt. My question is, will running my Muff Diver at 12 volts hurt the pedal? Go! And thanks. I am running my Muff Diver Finale off a CAE MC-403 Power System. I am using the variable power plug which I tuned to where I like it. Probably 8 volts or so.
  11. blah blah blah Being a troll is OK, being a stupid troll only makes you look stupid.
  12. I've always been impressed by how much the Beatles changed their sound within a seven year gap or so. It's insane. It was the drugs. At least in regards to the Fixing a hole. In an interview with Q magazine from around the time of his 1997 album Flaming Pie, McCartney said that the song's lyric began with the simple idea of someone mending a hole in the road, and that he was living alone and smoking a lot of marijuana when he wrote it. And oddly enough it was John playing bass on it.
  13. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9FacSNRBHk And that's the first original composition they ever recorded, way the f back in 1961. Cry for a Shadow" by Lennon and Harrison When you consider that band in a few short years created this it is astounding.
  14. how is stating your opinion being a troll? Opinion? LOLZ
  15. What if the people who first played Black music were white boys? :eek:
  16. jimi hendrix was actually good though Same question you should ask of yourself troll.
  17. to stir the pot even more, i wonder what history would have been like if the beatles were black and not white. vice versa for chuck berry and little richard-what if they were white and not black? would their music all of the sudden have been more popular or less popular because of their race? ROFL What if Rock was based on Black music!!!!
  18. Magical Mystery Tour has about three good songs on it. It's a mediocre Beatles album. Same with Sgt. Pepper's, Help!, and Abbey Road. LOLZ Now that's is what I call a dumb{censored} of a statement.
  19. You just proved my point. The only time The Beatles ever had soul was when someone else was covering their songs. Being a dip{censored} is nothing to aspire.
  20. Creedence Clearwater Revival, albeit seven in four years. CCR is the other band for me. In actuality it was CCR which got me to play guitar. John Fogerty is amongst the best songwriters of the 60s. Right up there with the Boys.
  21. After slogging through this thread and having various opinions on the value of this forum, wink, wink, nod, nod, I'm thinking this is a pretty valid question with obviously a lot of "believers" on both sides of great affect/no or negative affect. I also noticed a lot of "who could care less". Mostly I'm thinking of all the great songs that I personally would miss. Because obviously they would not exist without the Beatles. Just a few off the top of my head that have had a lasting affect on me: "I've Just Seen a Face", "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away", "Got to Get You into My Life" , "With a Little Help from My Friends" (would we know Joe Cocker as well without this one?), "Within You Without You", "A Day in the Life" , "In My Life" , "The Fool on the Hill" , "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" , "Yer Blues" just to mention a few. These songs and more have had an affect on the music I make and have affected my life for their beauty and poetry. It is a fact that many considered the mop top boys to be just another "boy band" in the beginning. How much of this was because of jealousy is debatable, but their music matured despite the crushing pressures put upon them by their public. And now even their early material has gained acceptance by respected musicians worldwide. A lot of their early writing came out of the demand of 1 or more 6 hour daily sets played in Germany, day after day for up to 93 days continuous. You may be able to imagine their need to come up with some new material out of simple boredom, forced inspiration, and simply wishing to keep their audience happy. Anyway, regardless of their impact on music and the industry, my life would have been less inspired even though I did have the Kinks, Stones, Van Morrison, The Zombies, "White Boy Blues", and hundreds of other greats. Also, I'd like to thank Naterel for restoring my faith in this forum: Now, on to finding info on the POG2. That's pretty damn well said. POG2. I had a POG1 and loved it but hated the noise. I have heard the POG2 improved in this dept so I may get one. Let me know how you like it.
  22. i don't hate the beatles. i would really like to hang out with john or george, i just don't get why almost everyone thinks they're the greatest thing that happened to music. it just doesn't click in my brain and no one has given me a reason to think otherwise. Listen to their catalog and I bet you'll become a fan. And no you haven't heard enough if you made a statement like that. But again that's why we have opinions I guess. Example.

  23. I wasn't alive, but it still saddens me a lot. He is my biggest influence. Rip John. Oddly enough he impacts so many from all generations. My mother was born in 1932 and she loved the Beatles. She too is now gone. BTW my 14 year old daughter is a Beatles fanatic. Taught her well I did. RIP John... and George....
