  1. Hi all~ Has anyone here used one or own one? I've heard the YouTube videos, & I wasn't 100% sold on it. Our hearing is a funny thimg, & tend we to perceive a boost in volume as something which it may or may not really be what it's advertised to be. I didn't really hear anything that a simple boost pedal can't add. Maybe in real time & not online, it adds something special, but I couldn't tell. Any thoughts? 🕉
  2. Wow.... That Civil War is a beast.....very much what I am seeking. It's called a Big Muff II...same thing? I see many variations on Fleabay... some ridiculous money & while others not so much. But I want a good one! LOTS of clones.....man I need help with this one!! Chicago Stompworks...EHX Deluxe Big Muff II..Stomp Under Foot...Wren & Cuff?? Think Rypdal, Taylor, & Gilmour. Thnx
  3. About 30 yrs. ago, my band & I recorded in a top A room studio, and I was playing my H'bucker loaded Strat into a Boss Heavy Metal pedal, set to a tone cut, as opposed to any boost, then into my rack which contained a parametric EQ set to a subtle but sharp EQ curve cut in the low mids, then into a low powdered Gibson amp. The tone I got was something like a combination of Norwegian guitarist Terje Rypdal, & Mick Taylor from 'Time Waits For No One'. It sounded almost like a violin, somewhat O/D'n but smooth & not edgey. No that different from Clapton's old tone cut 'Woman Tone' sound with Cream, but with more high end clarity. No longer owning any of that equipment other than the guitar, I want to try to replicate that type of sound, with the least amount of the buying, swapping, & selling dance we all do. I know the amp is a big piece of the puzzle, but is there a OD pedal that comes to mind that might give me what I've described? I know Terje uses a TC Electronics Sustain-Param. EQ pedal thru AC30's, & Taylor is simply a guitar tone god, so what I seek is surely a tall task, but I just want that rounded OD sound w/o the spikes & edge, with something of a parametric EQ effect on board as well, or seperate. Thanks all!!
  4. Hiya... Preferably one made for the 'non-collar' model, but would consider the other one?! Thanks 🕉
  5. Hi all... I really love this pedal, but as everyone knows, when it's engaged, you lose all the low end, but even worse for me is losing all the high end snap & string attack. Are there fairly simple mods that can be done to this pedal to put some life back into it? I wouldn't attempt this myself, but with explicit instructions & direction, I would give it to my tech. OR, is there some renowned & reputable pedal guy out there that is known for this stuff, especially with this particular pedal? I'm all ears! Thanks folks~ 🕉
  6. Hi all~~ I'm look8ng at this AVATAR A50 & the owner's not 101% certain it's original..... Any AVATAR users out there who might know by looking at the numbers CR-963 16-47 ? thanks ​​​​​​​🕉
  7. I'm looking to either sell my Little 59 Bridge in parchment, & mint with long leads for $60 delivered, OR trade for the same pup in CREAM. Thanks, Kenny 🕉
  8. Having been informed by a 'gear-mate' that the Dynamic Filter needs 12v AC but only 9v DC, is there a mod to make the AC input function properly with the 9v from my Mutron 9v Battery Buddy instead of the AC requirement of 12v?? Right now all I get is a barely visible super dim red light with the Mutron.....pedal works fine with a battery....hmmm~~ Please be specific for the benefit of my tech. Thanks 🕉
  9. Hi all~~ I just purchased this pedal used, & while it powers up fine using a 9v battery, it won't do so using my 9v Mutron Battery Buddy. All I get is a very very faint light, visible only with the room pitch black. I also have another mid 80's BOSS HF-2 with the same requirements & plug input, and that one works just fine, as do my other 4 pedals in the chain. Seller claims "although it is the pedal of this age, ACA Series or 12V is required when using a DC plug. There is also a method to use it connected to the BOSS power supply(PSM or LS or TU).​​​​​​" 12v?? I've never heard of that before from a 9v Boss device. Am I missing something?

  10. I couldn't agree with you all more. For what I want, Warmoth was 400+ minimum. Best Guitar Parts is mid 2's for exactly what I want. Hardware was 80ish & body 50. As soon as the right color 'road worn' body comes around, I'll jump. 🕉
  11. Yeah, the neck, which will definitely be a keeper, & all the hardware will make its way to new body if the Affinity fails. But no other measurements to be careful of when building the neck, besides the pocket & placement of the neck, which I dare not do myself? Thanks. 🕉
  12. Hi all..... I've begun my first DIY & badly need help before ordering a neck. The body, according to the seller, is an Affinity, comes with stock trem assembly, but my own pickguard & all black hardware except for neck & nut. Neck will (hopefully) be ebony on maple with 6130 frets, 22 fret (with overhang), 25 1/2", not sure about the radius yet...i'd like it to be much like my prized 60's neck pictured....any guesses on my radius I have there? Is the anything I need to be careful of before I spring a few bills for a nice neck & have it professionally installed? I'll surely wait until the body gets here & measure the pocket & go from there. Anything else to concern myself with? Thanks in advance, folks~~ 🕉
  13. Hi all~~ I'm having a neck made for a project, & I'd like to stick to the feel & specs of my 60's something neck that I've owned & played for 45 yrs. I'm hoping someone could tell me its radius, & if the pictures don't offer enough info, perhaps the necks age will help shed light on the answer. Thanks everyone~~🕉
  14. Hi all~~ I just finished a Strat pickguard with P90's (10k) in the neck & bridge, & a Dimarzio SDS-1 in the middle (only because I had a spare), & I'm not at all happy with the 2 or 4 sounds. The setup is a 5-way switch, 1 Vol, 1 Tone, & a blender knob for mixing the neck & bridge. Simple. But I want i single coil Stratty p/u with a great stand alone tone, but something that would give me quacky or interesting 2 & 4 sounds. Something altogether new! My middle SDS-1 is simply too hot & dark for that slot & doesn't have anything to offer opposite the P90's. I'd live to hear about real great results that many of you may have come across. Thanks in advance & looking forward to hearing about some real world results! 🕉
  15. Thanks Phil....moving abouts is definitely not gonna happen. I agree with the 4x10 approach! 🕉
  16. They don't need to be perfect, but not cracked or trashed. I need 2 to complete my Strat project. Thanks all! 🕉
  17. I've always liked the punch of 4x10"s, Jensen P10R's, but don't want to lose too much of that sweet low end & overall beauty that the G12H30-55 is famous for!!??? Truly different animals? Thanks~

  19. I know this is the guitar thread, but maybe I can get a bite here... I eed help....😏... L20T 4x10 or 1x12, both used UK Made? The 4x10 P10R's is less than 1/2 the price of the 1x12 G12H30-55, but it's more of a back-breaker, though either amp will really be going out much, if at all. Pluses, drawbacks, favourites out there? Much obliged. FWIW I've owned L5T head & combos, & a L20H head.

  21. My decision has finally come down to these 3.....Tonerider Hot90's, Bareknuckle Nantuckets, Vintage Vibe P90's. They'd be going into the B + N of my beloved Strat with a 8.7k Dimarzio SDS1 in the middle. Looking for some rockin' blues sounds, & borderline punk tones thru my Mesa DC3 1x12 combo. Nothing to heavy or over the edge. I'm not really playing out, so it's just for my at home entertainment, trying to get close to my 59 LP Special & 57 Junior. Money's not terribly an issue, but there is a big spread between the TR's & the Bareknuckle's!! Any thoughts or advice to be given? Thanks all!!
  22. SDS-1 woes aside, which P90's do folks around here like for bridge & neck in a rosewood neck Strat with new Blender Pot harness. Since my middle SDS1 is kinda hot @ 8.6k, I'm thinking of some Vintage SD's, or some Hot Toneriders my pal raves about. Fralin, Antiquities & Lollars are probably only a little bit better but at a big price diff. I don't want anything too dark & murky.... not too hot & muddy. But I'm open to suggestions & eager to hear from ya'll. Thanks
  23. Hey DADDYMACK... I'll be using 2 500k pots, Blender pot & a 5 way. It's not an SD Super Distortion, it's the single coil SDS-1, not stacked or anything,,,, just a SC. If the black & white are both normal outs (hot), where do they go?
  24. [h=3]Member[/h] Hi. I recently picked up an older SDS1 that has a total of 4 wires: bare, black, green & white. It will be going into the middle position opposite 2 P90's. 10 different blogs have 15 differing answers as to what's what. I was under the impression that it was a single coil p/u, so I'm a little confused. Bare is obviously ground, but what about the other 3? Is one left taped off, & is there the option that there are two hots, with one of them being a lower output lead? I'm lost...the p/u is in transit so I can't measure stuff. But what's the general layout of my four leads? Thanks all~~
