Got a lot of new gear over the last year, but hadn't really had the time to sit down and play with any of it until lately. Here's a quick clip I made with it all.
Signal chain is Fender "Hot Rod" Strat (alder + DiMarzio Super Distortion...
More or less considered the embodiment of 80s metal tones, the ADA MP-1 has quickly become my the ampfor me. Admittedly, I'm a "one trick pony" player when it comes to tone, but the tone I'm getting from the MP-1 when used with an Ibanez SD9M pedal and an over-sized 1X12" cab has made me a...
Always thought a baritone guitar like this would be a great idea, except nobody was making them until now. So yeah, I treated myself to a new Ibanez SRC6 Crossover Bass. Think of it like a Fender Bass VI on 'roids. There's a 30" with string spacing similar to a standard scale six string guitar...

Tried a heavier gauge for my 8 string today, a set of 90-12, to be exact, and they sound and feel great. The 90 is just a little too big to sit in the nut properly, but it's holding its tune so I'm not complaining. String tension is about equivalent to 6 string tuned to D standard, give or take...
I came into a possession of one of their 1X12 cabs a while ago, but haven't had a chance you use it until a couple of days ago when I picked up a used ADA MP-1 preamp. Lordy! Does this thing sound huge! Tone is thick and...

Just found out about these. Look/sound pretty interesting. So far they're made Marshall, Fender, Vox, and Mesa pedals. Price is definitely right at $40 USD.
I'm curious as to why Gibson has not entered the 7/8 pup market. The most obvious reason being they don't make ERGs, but given the that ERGs are much more prevalent than they were just a few years ago, one wonders why Gibson hasn't made at least one foray into the ERG pup market.
I was in the market for a new distortion pedal. After listening to a ton of demos I decided on the Rocktron Metal Planet. Luckily, Musiciansfriend.com was having a sale and I got the Rocktron pedal for $80.
Tone-wise the pedal has a lot of variety, not to mention plenty of gain to work with...
My new Agile 827 Septor arrived today.
Initial inspection revealed no blemishes or other aesthetic abnormalities.
The Body: The natural mahogany finish looks better than these less than ideal pics would have you think, and reminds me a lot of the finish on my Faded Special...
Ordered an 8 string Septor from Agile last week. The guitar I got today was not only the wrong version, I'd ordered one with a tuneomatic, not hipshot style bridge, but buzzed so bad I'd have sent it back anyways.
Do they look at these or even test them before they ship them out? Guess not...
