  1. I looked after the auction was over and i didn't see a reserve Yeah, you didn't set a reserve. You just sold it or $32. That sucks. But if you don't sell it for that price, you're going to get reamed.
  2. How can you call it a Sansamp when Tech 21 had nothing to do with it? Yeah, it seems kind of wrong to call it a Sansamp when it is in fact not. Also seems a bit illegal too. If it's not made by Tech 21, you shouldn't be referring buyers to T21's site. Anyway, your clips don't work.
  3. MXR Phase 90 w/ R28 mod - $45 shipped This Phase 90 has had the famous R28 mod that makes it sound cleaner and more script like. The R28 mod greatly improves the tone of the Phase 90 and is a definate must. It's got a few paint chips. Also, for some reason the pedal doesn't have a battery clip. I don't know if it was removed or what. But since most people seem to use adapters these days, it's probably not a big deal. PM if interested. Paypal/USPS Money Orders accepted.

  5. LOL. If it helps, I'm setting up a new Paypal very soon. I got burned by a guy doing a "chargeback" on me after I had mailed his item out, and after that, just stopped using Paypal. But since EVERYBODY is reliant on that, I guess I'm going to have to bite the bullet and get one going again. I'll make an update when I do. As for the clips, I pretty much said they weren't great, the idea was to give some idea of what the thing sounds like, not make a top 40 record. Sorry they aren't up to your standards. As for the clean clip: you're right...it is overdriving, that's what the clean does on this amp when its turned up. I probably should have mentioned that I recorded it VERY loud, loud enough to play with drums. I was trying to show the WAY the clean breaks up when it gets loud. If you really want a "cleaner" clip, I'll record one at lower volume that shows a cleaner clean. Also, in the second half of that clip, the amp IS hit with a BM boost to overdrive it, I assume you knew that. If anybody really wants a completely clean clip, I'll do one. Also, if anyone who is seriously interested wants me to try to record better clips of this thing, I can give it a shot. I've got a real pieced together recording setup, and it just isn't going to crank out the quality of stuff that most people are able to record. Sorry. Well, it really has nothing to do with it sounding like a profesional top 40 recording; it just doesn't showcase the tone of the amp very well. At least I hope it doesn't, as the tone in the clips sound pretty bad. They sound really muddy and distant. But definately get a clip of the amp totally clean.
  6. For what it's worth, if I had the money I would buy this immediately. I can't believe someone isn't jumping on it, it's a lot of amp for the money. Well, the fact that he doesn't take Paypal REALLY hurts. Heck, if he were to take Paypal, I'd probably buy it. The clips also hurt as they suck pretty badly, especially the clean clip, which is clearly the amp overdriven.
  7. WTB: Tube amp under $400 Preferences: 1x12 Under 30 watts (around 15 is best) REVERB Effects loop I'm particularly interested in the following: Traynor YCV20 Carvin Vintage 16 Fender Blues Jr. (older cream board MIA model) Crate V16 Palomino
  8. I'm looking for a Carvin Vintage 16. PM me if you've got one for sale.
  9. has anyone tried using like a furman power conditioner and a one spot?? They are pretty cheap now a days on Ebay and was wondering if this would clean up the hum. i think most of my hum comes from my amp tho... Isn't that thing a rack unit though? That's kind of a pain in the ass if you don't have a rack setup. Do they have any like surge protector type things?
  10. Looks like @omheartmother is just going to have to man up and get a PP2+ or buy some b@eries Well, even the PP2+ as some faults as it only has a few power outputs (4 plus the sag ones). What pedals does it work with? It only mentions Boss pedals. Does it have adapters for EHX pedals? I'm OK with batteries as none of the pedals are huge drainers. But I have having to disconnect half the cables on my pedal board after every show. How much does a pedal drain a battery by having a cable connected, but the pedal off? I'm talking about an analog chorus (Ibanez CS-9) and analog trem (Boss TR-2).
  11. What kind of music are we playing? I dunno... DD6>TR-2>TU-2 Don't need an overdrive/distortion pedal as the amp has two channels.
  12. Does it matter if you only use the phaser with a clean tone? Where does chorus go?
  13. HANG ON...... Let me balance things out..... I think we've got a pedophile on our hands. Seriously, dude...I think you have a problem. You try to cover it by claiming that it's humorous, but I really think you need help before you do something illegal.
  14. On the cheap, get a Godlyke Power All. Around $40 & quieter than the 1-Spot. I keep one in my case as a backup. A little more gets you a DC Brick. Top of the ladder is the PP2+. I use both a PP2+ and a Brick and have no hum problems at all running 16 pedals. I've considered the Godlyke, but I'm assuming that I'll probably have the same problems as it's also a switching power supply. I could be wrong? Am I? I've also looked at the DC Brick, but it supposedly only supplies up to 375 mA total to 9 volt pedals, and my Digidelay will take up half that on its own. The PP2+ is just ridiculously expensive. I'd rather just use batteries with my analogs and use the standard adapter for the Digidelay.

  16. just try it with one. do it to both ends and plus directly into the amp. if there isnt any hum then there yea go. I don't get hum without the 1 Spot. Without the 1 Spot plugged in regardless of what cables, amp, guitar, pedals, etc. that I'm using, I get no hum/buzz. This is why I find it extremely unlikely that it's a problem with a cable(s). Not only that, but I find it very unlikely that all 9 of my cables (8 solderless, one soldered) have grounding problems. I thik I've taken just about everything into account other than their just being something inherently wrong with the 1 Spot and/or switching power supply design. I just don't see how others have success with them. Maybe they're more tolerant of buzz or don't hear it at stage volumes or something.
  17. have you tried cutting a little bit of the cable off and reconnecting it? maybe the ground came undone inside? On all of the cables?
  18. think about switching cables seeing if the ground in the cable is messed up? a bad cable happens to the best of us! if you have monster, planet waves, or mogami you can go to your local gc/ dealer and swap them out. or just try one brand new guitar cable. if the hum is gone then there is your problem! I've tried several different cables, including different brands (Planet Waves and Bill Lawrence, both solderless).
  19. They pulled my thread on HCFX changing their look to look just like TGP. I wasn't critical whatsoever. I made no offensive remarks whatsoever. Wilbo - you saw what I posted - why in the hell did they pull my thread????? I emailed this Brian guy and asked him why they pulled my thread and how I offended anyone with that? Not that I really give a {censored} - it just blows my mind that they did that and I want to know why. It also instructed me to read the new rules - I don't even know wtf the old rules were having reached a whopping 5 posts - now I'm back down to 2 posts. I don't really care what the reason is - I will never post there again. Ever. They're much much much too anal for me. What a bunch of punks. End of rant. See ya all in a couple weeks. I'm going to go play with my toys. They're kind of forum nazis over there. They're only one step less fascist than FDP.
  20. I think the hum may be coming from your guitar not being grounded properly... Guitar and lapsteel both not grounded properly? How about how there is hum without the cable (from guitar to first pedal) not being plugged in, which goes away when I touch the shield part of the plug (the part you pull on when pulling a cable out of a jack)?
  21. So the Visual Sound 1 Spot is out, which also means that all switching power supplies are probably out, unless the 1 Spot is vastly different. I'm getting some strange hum that goes away when I touch something metal on the guitar or pedal that it's connected to. I've tried both my guitar and lapsteel into several different pedals (one at a time or all at once) into two different amps in three different locations with the 1 Spot plugged into several different outlets at each location. No matter what I try, it's hum city. I even get hum with my Microcube running on batteries (not plugged into the wall). Also, I get the hum even when the cable is not plugged into the guitar; but when I touch the part of the plug you use to pull it out of jacks, the hum goes away. So it must be some grounding issue with the 1 Spot. So anyway, the 1 Spot is out of the picture. The guys at Visual Sound have no idea what the problem could be and have even sent me a replacement that still has the same hum problem. In addition, I assume this is the case with ALL switching power supplies. So...what are my other solutions? I need to power like 4 or 5 pedals (one digital, the rest analog). I'm hoping to be able to do it for under $100, cheaper the better. Is this hopeless?
