one... But that would probably only be good for jamming out at home. I like to record things all the time, and I imagine that one of those power strips would bring noise into the recording.
Those one spot power adapters are actually very reliable. I've seen countless amounts of musicians using them live, they're pretty good for the money.
Don't buy the Boss Harmonizer, it's shit. If you want some good harmony, go with the Digitech Whammy.
anyone need one of these:
The Whammy is a much much MUCH better investment. The Harmonizer just reminds me of a Whammy without all of the cool features.
So, I went and tried out guitars last week. Of the things I played, I most enjoyed the Squier Vintage Modified Jaguar HH and the J. Mascis Jazzmaster.
Why should I go for one over the other? I liked the feel of both, preferred the neck on the Jaguar, and I liked different things with the tone for each.
My gut says Jag because I love the humbucking sound and the fact that each set of pickups has its own knob with tone and volume control, but I love the floating tremolo and the adjust-o-matic bridge on the Jazzmaster. There are so many things to consider.
The J. Mascis is a lot cooler.
squire j mascis jazzmaster. if you're after the jag i'd save a couple hundred and find a used jagmaster
I went Mascis. It was more expensive and my folks offered to get whatever I wanted, so that was one reason. Also, that Squier moded Jag is only $250, so I could afford that at some later point pretty easily.
So now, next question: If I wanted a 20-30watt practice amp, what would y'all recommend. I love the Orange sound, so I was leaning that way, but I'm open to suggestions.
what are your needs in an amp besides it being 30 watts max? I'm assuming you'd rather let your pedals do the distortion work over a good clean channel as opposed to utilizing an amps onboard dirty channel correct?
An orange 2x12 with a tiny terror would suffice, but thats 15watts iirc
Also, for small practice amps, never forget the Pignose. Battery powered, unique and fun tone, clips onto your guitar strap. What more could you want.
I like to play.
The guitar center in San Jose had a couple floor models the last time I was there, which was probably a week ago. I've got to return some power supplies after work and if they're still sticking around I'll let you know
Anybody out there using any of the Behringer vintage series pedals? Tempted to get a time machine & the higher model tube overdrive. I know that that the tubes can be swapped. Youtube reviews seem to praise them somewhat as being an inexpensive alternative to the Electroharmonix pedals both vintage & new.
"Oh this uncertainty is taking me over"
They are really really close if not dead on sonically to the original pedal's their trying to cop(except the tube tape echo). A fantastic value for the money but like any other behringer product, will only last for so long it seems. Then again, my friend treats his live board like shit which is full of behringer stuff(he keeps the more expensive boss/ehx/etc counterparts at home for recording work) and I think the only thing that died was the vb-2 clone.
finished the first centaurd tonight
