  1. Can you explain what's going on with the SG? I am easily confused Yeah...I don't get it either...what model is that and what has been customized? That's not a stock model of some brand, is it?
  2. Overall...considering I got this used for $550...it is absolutely amazing. It is honestly the best guitar I've ever played...and I've had some nice guitars over the years.
  3. IIRC, it's a Distortion III except that either a couple of resistors or a trimpot are slightly different. I emailed them with the question and this is the response I got: They are exactly the same except for the casting.

  4. I got mine today! in store it sounded like a Rat to my ears playing a PRS SE into it into a marshall MG clean channel. the cool thing about it is its clean on 0 and gets rather hairy in a modded JCM800 vein after 5. The tone stack is varied from warm usable bass to nasty treble. You can crank the volume well past unity to push the preamp tubes too. I just cracked it open and saw a nice little PCB with a TL072CP IC, 2 red LEDs. Seems to be a straight forward Marshall Guv'nor clone. but im still examining it. the same True bypass switch in most pedals, PCB looks similar to my crunchbox, great quality honestly. $43 out the door! with a battery. but no AC adapter... Does it sound like the old Guv'nor or the newer, horrible one? I'm not getting the Rat and Guv'nor connection...different animals in my book. They must have brought the price up to $39.99? Last week they were $29.99.
  5. It's exactly the same guts as the Distortion III according to Dunlop/MXR customer support. I just bought one I found at a GC...it didn't come with the rubber knob covers and I believe the casing is not as thick as the first run of this pedal. It's as light as a feather...felt like the box was empty. Still sounds great though. I'm curious about that BBE AM64, but usually anything with "metal" in the name sounds like crap. I don't think they do hi gain too well...the Crusher is horrendous.
  6. How does it compare to the Bad Monkey? Tnx! Blows the Monkey out of the water...not even the same league. Best OD I've used including boutique models. Only one that stands up with it is my SRB808+.
  7. I'll +1 this, excellent TS for the price. It's a BYOC TS board by the looks of it, but it's been given clipping options and basically made into a Landgraff clone with a fat boost switch. For the money is well worth it. ++1...awesome pedal...amazing clarity...the 2 in 1 rocks.
  8. To the poster: Are you suggesting that the hum is abnormal and needs attention? Is this still available?
  9. An overall 9 for doing what it intends to do very well, and for the quality and price.
  10. I think it's a great sounding, well made pedal for a really decent price. I would probably replace it if lost or stolen. I like it...it's perfect for me.
  11. One of the best and most useful pedals I've ever owned. Great classic OD tones and a quiet, transparent clean boost...soild build. What more could you ask for?

    Overall, a solid 9. There are a lot of great features, great tones and tons of power in this small footprint combo. Made in the USA with great quality. Simply a great amp.
  13. For the price, it's a very good pedal that gives you quite a bit of control although, again, it is a very subtle effect.
  14. I'm a tone nut who likes solid state amps and effects pedals, with that in mind, this amp allows you to really key in your own sound. It is very clean and pure...it will bring out the positives and negatives to your technique and your instrument. I really wish it had reverb, but I must say, it is a real solid player and is quite handsome with it's vintage look.
