  1. Interested in an MXR Carbon Copy for the Alesis Nanoverb?
  2. beat Russia bump... Dyna Comp is sold, comrades Another gratuitous Canada pulled Russia's pants down and gave them a spanking bump. Canada played a hell of a game.
  3. Would you consider a BBE Mind Bender analog chorus/vibrato for the DD-6? It has velcro on the back, but it's in great shape. I have the original box/instructions and comes with a 9v adaptor.
  4. I own several guitars that I gig with so the SG Special was just something cheap to play with at home or band rehearsals. I've read through several of the negative reviews posted on HC and I wonder what people were expecting from a very basic beginner's guitar? It's a fun inexpensive guitar to play with. That's it. Don't expect it to sound and play like a Gibson SG because it's not. I chose this guitar because it was really cheap and sounded good and played really well after a proper setup. I've I lost it or had it stolen I'd miss it, but I won't loose any sleep over it.
  5. I mainly play ambient alternative music: shoegaze, dreampop, post-punk/new wave. The ME-50 is adequate for most styles of music, but I choose to enhance my effects by running it along with a couple of other pedals. The main disadvantage for me is that you can't layer your modulation effects. For example, you can't use Chorus and Flanger together or Chorus and Tremolo together. That's why I run a separate Reverb, Chorus and Space Echo pedal in addition to the ME-50. I really appreciate the various modulation and delay effects available, but the fact that it also has a built in tuner, compresser,noise suppressor and an easy to use expression pedal makes this unit all the worth while especially when you don't have to deal with a bunch of patch cables and power cords. Since the ME-50 has been discontinued in favor of the ME-70, some good deals can be had on any remaining stock. Even if you buy used, you'll still be getting a good deal on a solid effects unit. It's not the best by far, but it's certainly worth getting if you're in the market for a decent multi-effects processor.
  6. I've never seen these performances before, they are close to perfect! especially pictures of you, it was spotless! Thanks for sharing. Anytime! That was The Cure at their very best, in my opinion. Best lineup of the band too.
  7. I remember reading a Robert Smith quote from a 2000 issue of Guitar Player where he said that if he broke his Bass VI he would entertain the idea of giving up. I do miss Robert playing his Bass VI's, but I think it's unlikely that he'd give up especially since he plays a custom Schecter Ultracure VI in addition to his regular Ultracure guitar. Doesn't sound the same as the Fender Bass VI, but then there's also the Schecter Hellcat VI which is Schecter's take on the Fender Bass VI and can nail those "Disintegration" era Cure tones. Anyway, these are my favorite Cure vids featuring the legendary Fender Bass VI.

  8. Interested in trading for any particular pedals?
  9. I've heard some people say it's a limited instrument reserved for specific use. I disagree. I think possibilities for this instrument are limited by your own imagination. It's not exactly a baritone guitar, nor is it anything like a modern 6 string bass, so what is it? Is it a bass? Is it a guitar? You decide. Bass players accustomed to playing conventional 4 5 and 6 string basses may have to get accustomed to it, but guitarists should do just fine. If it were lost or stolen, I'd get another in a heartbeat.
