  1. My band was lucky enough to win an all expenses paid trip that allowed us to play at the Tokyo International Music Market, national radio play, a film clip and numerous other shows around Japan (between Tokyo and Osaka). If you can get an interview on radio, it always helps. We did an interview in Tokyo (J-Wave was the station) and another in Osaka (can't remember the station). But the biggest thing is playing in front of the largest number possible. The music market was the one of the strangest and best things I have ever witnessed, but there was 6000 people there and they all really get into music they have never heard. If you can play at Chicken George in Osaka, do it. That place apparently always sells out regardless and sounds great. Also see if you can play with an act that is already known over there even if they sound like anime pop (they will bring a crowd). After a little over a week there, our iTunes sales were beyond what we even imagined. Also visit a few guitar stores in tokyo. Ishibashi is amazing, but floating around are little stores that sell things at stupid prices. I got an RV-3 and Carbon Copy for roughly $15AUD (for both).

  3. Got rid of mine: Pros: Sounds fantastic Alot of options Useful for recording because of MIDI Cons: Takes a painstakingly long amount of to learn how to use it. I will buy another in the future, but for now I don't have the time to sit down with a pedal for even an hour to learn how to use it to its full potential. I much prefer my DD20/Carbon Copy combo. Sounds amazing, was cheaper and could dial in nice sounds after about 5 minutes.
  4. Looking to flip mine. It lasted about 10 minutes on my board before I realised it couldn't do what my tusk fuzz does and I really don't need 2 fuzzes on my board. Sounds pretty cool, just not for me.

  7. this is what I use. these are the {censored} on my tele Thought about these as that one little .011 seems weaker than every other string. Did you have to adjust the bridge or nut to get these on?
  8. My band will be playing some shows in Japan next month and I was just wondering if my Supa Charger will work over there? Its rated from 120v to 240v, but Japan is 100v. Anyone tried it?
  9. thats a deville 2x12, with a marshall salt & pepper grill. it has v30s, JJ's and some other stuff. it sounds pretty good. when its time to bend circuits.. the finish on that telecaster is stunning.
  10. I need to rewire my board up differently now. The current band I'm playing with is taking a little break, and I'm getting ready to start gathering up a live band for Ancient Mariner. Just recently got all my gear back into the "studio" room. jesus christ. Hows the firestudio?
  11. As much as I don't love the looks of them, I played one and the neck was really nice! Bass contour is different.
