  1. So the two pedal I got were: EarthQuaker Devices The Depths V2 (A Univibe) Danelectro 3699 Fuzz I've never owned a Fuzz or a Univibe before. The Depths I LOVE. Can dial in this Dark Side of the Moon tones instantly. Lots of fun and definitely a fixture on my pedal board. It'll be awesome helping me fake keyboard tones/parts. The 3699 I'm still iffy on. It's got the fuzz and the Octave, which is really cool. But, IDK how else to say it except that it's too fuzzy. I really only like it with the fuzz down to zero. This one I'm going to need to play with a bunch more. I mean, if I was doing a Jimi cover band, it'd be awesome, but so far, it seems very one dimensional.
  2. I've had a Tube Screamer on my board for years, but a few weeks back I found an old Jeckyl and Hyde pedal I had lying around and I have to tell you, I think I like that overdrive better than the TS. Plus the distortion side of the pedal is an added bonus.
  3. I don’t know about anyone else, and maybe it’s shallow on my part. But ordering some new gear has gotten me back to playing a ton more. Goofy part is it’s just a couple pedals and they haven’t even arrived yet. IDK. I’m guessing because I’m not performing I needed something else to get me excited. Pedals arrive on Wednesday!
  4. Amazing as always! The first half had a lot of Oz inspiration for sure. Excellent tune and amazing playing.
  5. I love that Ibenez analog delay. I have the same pedal!
  6. Hey there, Long time member of the HC forums, but I've never posted on the effects forum. But I'm looking for thoughts. I've never owned a fuzz pedal. Now I have my eye on the Danelectro 3699 fuzz/octave pedal. I currently play through a Dr. Z M12 and generally keep it at about 6 on the master, so it breaks up a little on it's own. For overdrive, I use a Soul Food, which I love. My second dirt pedal is a tube screamer, but that barely gets touched, so I was thinking a Fuzz would diversify the sounds I'm able to get more. Anyone have any thoughts on this pedal or recommend a different fuzz/octave pedal. A little background, I perform in a cover wedding/casino band 5-6 times a month (pre covid of course), and have a fairly simple pedal board (tuner, 2 delays, 2 distortions, chorus, reverb, and wah). I usually perform with an ES-335 or an ES Les Paul. Thanks for any input!
  7. That's great. Hadn't. heard that one before. I can't stop watching the drummers swaying hi-hat. LOL
  8. I liked that. It's funny because I do the same thing all the time. The thing I'll add is I sometimes give myself options, so that depending on how I'm feeling, the length of the gig, etc., I might decide to play something higher or lower. That's easy when it's just my wife and I performing. With the full band, once we decide on the key, that's basically where we're stuck playing it.
  9. Must be nice... "Ya know, did a little ditty with Oz Noy during quarantine" <hair flip>
  10. I'd totally be into it. Really dug that Jump blues one you posted.
  11. I've been finally really learning solos that I've been covering for years. Figure might as well learn to play them correctly. Been on the "that's good enough" train for a long time!
  12. Present! I'd love to see this rev back up!
  13. i bought a Dr Z M-12 and it’s probably the last amp I’ll ever get. I love it. And at 12 watts, I’m able to make it work nicely in a small room yet I’ve played gigs to 2000+ people with no issues. I learned a long time ago to let the sound guy and the PA do their jobs. No need for crazy loud stage volumes.
  14. Wait.... I just read this thread. A club says "I pay $x per member", I say bye bye. We provide entertainment for the night. I'll put my dopey 4-piece, drums, bass, guitar, 3 vocals up against a 9-piece horn band and feel confident that we'll entertain the crowd equally as well if not better. For that we deserve commensurate pay. That may come off arrogant, but come on. My "day job" is in sales, and I don't sell "by the hour". I sell for the result. Selling your band is no different.
  15. I appreciate the response. And agree completely. If it's a high paying gig, I'll pay a sound company to handle.
