  1. OK...so maybe I didn't know how to use it properly. Maybe I had the wrong idea of what this pedal did. Maybe mine was a lemon. In any case, for me, this was a worthless effect. Never did anything to my sound to convince me it was worth keeping. If you know what you're doing, then maybe this is a great pedal. Just be warned...

    I was in the market for a decently priced tube head, and this fit the bill. I ended up spending more on replacing the tubes than I spent on the amp, and I'm completely satisfied. It's a great sounding amp and I have no regrets. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who's looking for a cheap tube amp. I'm sure there's better stuff out there, but for the price, I don't see how you can go wrong. I play mostly Christian rock and worship music, and for those two things, this amp is the perfect fit. I should probably mention that this is the first tube amp I own, so while I've never used anything better, I like to think that I have a pretty good ear and this amp certainly doesn't sound bad. All in all, I'd probably buy another one if mine disappeared, but only if the price was right.
  3. I'm sure that for a few thousand dollars, you could probably pick up a Taylor, Martin, Guild, or Gibson that sounds better than this guitar. And I'm sure that if you had a few thousand dollars more, you could buy a custom made instrument that would sound even better. For the price, though, you can't go wrong. A great-sounding solid wood guitar made in Quebec--not China, not Taiwan, not Korea or Mexico--for under $400. What more could you ask for? I have more guitars than I have time to play, but this one gets played every week--almost every day, as a matter of fact. I'm in love with the sounds I can get out of this guitar and I'm always discovering new things. If I lost this guitar, I'd definitely go looking for another Seagull, although maybe a slightly higher-end model--something with electronics, probably. Overall, this is a great instrument!
  4. For the amateur recording I do and the few gigs I need to bring a mixer for, this thing cuts the mustard just fine. It's not an Allen and Heath or a high-end Yamaha or anything, but for what I use it for, it's more than sufficient. If it was lost or stolen, I don't know that I would jump on another one of these unless I could find an awesome deal on one. I picked up an older Biamp sixteen channel board for $150 for my churchs' coffehouse about a month ago, and although it lacks the features of my Behringer, it blows it out of the water. All in all though, I would say this is a solid piece of gear. If you're looking for something that doesn't cost an arm and two legs and gets the job done, I'd recommend it.
  5. I originally bought this amp because the deal was just too good to pass up--a Marshall head and a matching cab for just $400. Not bad, considering the head and cab go for $400 each separately! Anyway, I wasn't really sure that I'd get much use out of it when I bought it, but now, I'm glad I spent the cash. This is, without a doubt, the best sounding amp I own. I've been using this amp for about two years and I've grow more fond of it every time I plug a guitar into it. If it was lost or stolen, I would definitely search out a new one, or at least something similar. I don't think Marshall makes this particular model anymore...really a shame, since it's an excellent amp!
  6. This pedal is really a great one. It gives you ten EQ bands instead of the six or seven that most EQ pedals have and really lets you shape your sound. The preset feature is nice and lets you switch EQ's seamlessly in the middle of a song, which is another definite plus. The only bad thing I can think of about this pedal is that Boss discontinued it a while back. You can still find them on eBay (where I bought mine) and I've seen them turn up on Craig's List occasionally, but they're no longer manufactured. Meaning, if you see one for a decent price, jump on it--you might not see another good deal for a while. If this pedal somehow disappeared from my board, I'd probably end up buying a GE-7, just as a stop-gap solution, because I really depend on having an EQ pedal on my board. I would definitely track another EQ-20 down as quickly as I could though. I don't think this thing can be beat.
  7. I've been playing for five or six years and I own an Ovation and a Seagull in addition to this guitar and my LP. I typically play rhythm guitar for the two worship bands at my church. Like I said before, this guitar easily trumps my Les Paul and if this guitar was ever stolen or damaged, I'd definitely buy another one. I really like this guitar and have no regrets about buying it. If you're thinking about picking one up, I would highly recommend it!
  8. Outside of the hiss, the volume loss, and the fact that it's not made in Austria, I like this product. The range is decent, although I haven't gone more than 50 feet from the receiver yet. I haven't experienced any interference, and I've got three other channels to choose from if I ever do. It's really a great feeling to be free from cables. I can walk back to the mixing board to change a setting and keep on playing, I can walk around stage without having to worry about tripping over my cable--it's a great product in that sense. If this was stolen, I'd probably buy another wireless system, although I don't know if it'd be this one. It seems to be one of the more highly-regarded systems in the price range, although I might look into a Shure or an Audio-Technica if I had to buy another wireless system. Overall, it's a good product--it certainly has a few caveats, but it gets the job done.
  9. All in all, this is really a great piece of equipment. It's tough as nails, dependable as all get out, and made in the USA. I have an SKB case for my Les Paul as well and both the LP case and the pedalboard have taken years of abuse and still work great. If someone was to steal my board, I'd be in pretty sad shape since all my effects and cables are in there too, but I would definitely rebuild my effects chain on this product.
  10. The main reason I bought this pedal was because one of the guitarists I play with thinks it's an absolute necessity. Whenever I play clean, I get mad at him for making me spend money on something that doesn't change my sound at all. Whenever I play with a ton of effects, I'm glad that I bought it. Like I said before, the NS-2 kills noise and doesn't color your sound. If this one were lost or stolen, I'd probably buy another one.
  11. All in all, this is a great pedal. I use reverb all the time now, and this pedal has become an integral part of my sound. And I love the fact that Boss gave the RV-3 some delay functionality too. I don't use delay nearly often enough to justify going out and buying a dedicated delay pedal, but this pedal gives me the ability to get some delay if I want it (or need it). I've heard that this particular pedal eats Duracells for breakfast, which isn't a problem for me since I use AC power all the time, but that's just something to be aware of. It has stereo outputs, which I've (unfortunately) never gotten a chance to use because I've never come across a stereo PA system to use it on. Just something else to keep in mind. If this pedal happened to disappear, I'd definitely scour the Internet to find another one (they stopped making these a while back), 'cause I love the versatility this stomp box gives me.
