I don't know why but Mazzy Star just has the best acoustic guitar sound I've ever heard

Just got these two and they work like a charm. I put the ISP in the fx loop and it completely gets rid of the crackle and hiss in the DSL 2000. Put the Sentry in the ES-8 behind the gain pedals. I'm running 21 pedals overall (11 in the ES-8, fuzzes and PS-5 in front, compressor/eq behind it and a buffer in front and behind) and with all the requisite power supplies and cabling, the two on together has quieted down all the unwanted noise like a charm and tightened up the tone in a good way.

Still need to tweak the Sentry a bit to max out its capabilities, but so far so good.

Shedding old unwanted pedals on ebay. Getting back down to basics. Still on the fence about getting a Mel9 but kind of want to focus on real guitar sounds at the moment. Afraid that adding such a device will make me lie about the guitar again.

I'll probably create my own multi-effects pedal after I get better at playing the guitar using a Raspberry Pi or an Arduino.

Anyone else blowing their stimmy on gear? I really haven't invested in new pedals since, well, last posting in this thread! So I thought I deserved to splurge a bit. Some shit I got...


The new EHX Russian Green Big Muff. It rocks. Allegedly reproduction of the original Sovtek Green Big Muff (which I had in the 2000s but was stolen ;_; ). A/Bing, they sound really close, but it sounds way better than the Bass Big Muff I have been using for eternity.


TC Vibraclone. I just wanted a cheap, no frills, quick n easy rotary sound. That's it. Was using a Small Clone explicitly for that purpose, so this is replacing that.


Mattoverse Airtrash Fuzz. woo golly! Nasty, skanky fuzz that devolves into oscillations and rando noise. I got the wooden one.


Caroline Somesault. A fucked up chorus pedal. Getting some crazy ass modulations, bleeps and bends. It also has this "explosion footswitch" that when hit, it jumps the modulation speed to the max, making it seem like it's suddenly "exploding".


Death By Audio Echo Dream 2. A great analog delay pedal that made by my favorites Death By Audio. This is essentially upgrading my decade-old EHX Memory Boy, as this thing can do that plus an insane amount of crazy delay antics smoothly.


Catalinbread Csidman. It's a really pristine digital delay pedal, but with a turn of a few knobs, it becomes a glitch pedal, as the delays can be random and chaotic.

I also have a Gojira Noise Ensemble on order. Can't wait for it!

Do you have/have you used a Fuzz War? I've been thinking about getting one

I finally bought a small pedal train half a year or so ago, and it improved my life so much, that I honestly don't know how it could be improved any further.



For Apneu, I use the Ampeg SVT sound emulator.

I don't use that one for Fine China Superbone, since I have this amp for that band:

I use an old ass Ampeg cab for that one too. I can't find a picture. It has a speaker on the front and one on the back. It's rowdy.

For Apneu, I use an Ashdown amp with a newer Ampeg cab. Especially with the SVT emulator it sounds good enough.

Thing is with both my cabs that the wheels keep falling off.

when my biden bucks come I'll put money into my setup for the first time in a few years. I'm currently using an MXR analog chorus and I'd love to complement it with the MXR carbon copy delay.

I've also been sitting on a Peavey Classic 50 I've had since high school but have never changed the tubes in because I basically switched exclusively to acoustic up until a few years ago. It's unplayable and I don't have another big boy amp, so I'll probably take care of that as well.

i recently got my trump bux thanks to tax shit, bought a wireless receiver thing [i already have to play with headphones from my amp so i wanted one less wire], bought a mixer with my biden bux so the guitar is one channel, my phone clicks into another, and i can mix them in a much less stupid way than wearing AirPods under nice headphones

This is frighteningly close to what I splurged on last year. I rarely post on this board, but I had to.
