    Today I just picked up a “new to me” custom made Moratto amp. Looks like a tweed deluxe but it’s got a little surprise inside. It’s a mix of a tweed deluxe and a Harvard. First impressions are that it’s amazing…..of course I expected nothing less from such a quality builder. Full and rich, takes...

    Peavey Blues Classic?

    I have the opportunity to buy one of these amps but not sure if it’s worth it. From what I’ve read, it’s basically a Classic 50, but with a 15” speaker and was only made for a couple of years. Anyone here ever played through one or have one?

    For the vintage hi-fi lovers

    Just finished putting my vintage Hi-Fi System together in the mancave! Loving the sounds of a true vintage system. Akai reel to reel, Marantz 6100 turntable, Pioneer TX-6800 tuner, Pioneer SA-6700 amplifier, and a pair of vintage Polk Audio “Monitor Series” speakers…loving’ life right now

    Finally tracked one down and grabbed it. Budda “Bud- Wah”!! I don’t know how old it is but I’m guessing it’s an early one right after they changed from the black label to the purple one since it doesn’t have that extra battery door on the bottom. Either way it sounds pretty good. Very...

    Budda Bud-Wah….thoughts?

    I have the opportunity to buy an older Budda Bud-Wah..(purple label)….and I know there’s sooooo many people who absolutely love this Wah pedal. Anyone here have first hand experience with one and is $175 CAD an outrageous price? here’s some pics of the pedal I’m looking at buying:

    Lovepedal Les Lius 5e3 mini?

    Just saw one of these pop up on Reverb. Apparently it’s the 5e3 side of the big Les Lius and the Tchula side. Fixed gain but it seems SUPER rare. Anyone here had experience with one? It’ll be about $300 CAD after shipping so I was curious before I dropped that kind of money on something

    Another BluesBreaker?

    Saw this on the JHS show the other day….looks/sounds pretty cool. Nice “nod” to the original. I’ve put my name on the waiting list to giv’r a try.

    Transparent overdrives….nope

    I’ve recently come to the conclusion that I don’t like transparent overdrives. Maybe I’m just old or maybe I’ve been playing tube screamers for too long but I like a little mid hump to my overdrive. It just sounds “right” to me. I’ve been on a search for a “transparent” overdrive for many years...

    I think it’s time to go back to it….

    When I was playing “professionally”, my main rig was a stray, 2 Tube Screamers and a Vox Wah, with a delay thrown in every once and a while for some flavour, and I would get so many compliments on my tone back then. In the many years that have passed since that time I’ve tried so many...

    Are “special editions” worth more?

    Just curious for everyone’s thoughts….this thought popped into my head shortly after I purchased the white/silver version of the Hermida Audio/Lovepedal EPH-3 delay. I’ve never seen any besides the black version and it made me wonder if it’s worth more simply because it’s rare and looks...

    What I like about Hermida Audio (Lovepedal)…

    I’ve recently acquired 2 pedals made by Hermida Audio/Lovepedal. The EPH-3 Delay and the Reverb-3. I’ve always known Hermida Audio pedals are killer from having tried a ZenDrive years and years ago, but what I never realized about these particular effects is, while the obviously “effect” your...

    How bad has USPS gotten?

    I’ve been waiting on a pedal I ordered since July 16th, I’m in Toronto, the pedal was in St. Paul Minnesota….tracking shows it left the distribution centre in St Paul twice… then arrived at the distribution center in Chicago 4 times…then left that distribution centre twice and now has been “in...

    Rechargeable pedal board power supply?

    With my recent multiple pedal acquisitions, I’m going to be putting a pedal board together soon and I’m looking at power supplies. I really like the idea of a cordless rechargeable one….anyone here have experience with them? Are they a yay or nay?

    NPD JHS Superbolt

    I finally found one locally and was able to snatch it up at a very reasonable price! First impressions is that it is one of the most versatile overdrives I’ve played in my 25+ years of playing. It does not sound like anything else I’ve ever played though, it’s got its own, very distinct sound...

    NPD Hermida Audio EPH-3 Delay

    Just picked it up tonight! Came with all the original packaging and paperwork as well! First impression is it’s pretty good…really good in fact. Knobs are very sensitive so you can get a very wide variety of delay sounds with very small adjustments. I got lost in it for the first 30 min of...

    Hermida Audio (lovepedal) reverb, 3 knob vs 2

    I’m in the market and have the opportunity to by one or the other of these…. anyone have experience with the 3 knob version? I’ve watched tons of videos on the 2 knob but can’t find any on the 3 knob version…. Any owners know if there’s a massive tonal difference besides the obvious ability to...

    NPD 1978 MXR Distortion+

    Pick her up on Tuesday! Guy I work with says he’s had it sitting in a drawer for the last 20 years….I said I’ll take it off his hands for a reasonable price lol. I’ve never even heard of these till a few months ago when I was researching the Boss OD-1 lol. Now only heard them through YouTube...

    Sometimes I drive myself nuts

    I hate that I'm like this....I won't buy a certain piece of musical gear, just because it's immensely popular....I always have to go for the "unique" stuff that not everyone has... For example, have a custom made "E" style guitar made from 100 year old pine....I have a 1958 Supro 1606, I have a...

    Clark Gainster sounds

    Hey all. Finally got around to posting a little demo of my “new to me” Clark Gainster. I’ve never actually played a “transparent” overdrive before and tbh it will take me a while to get used to it I think. It’s cool though! Anyway, just shot it with my iPhone so the sound isn’t the greatest but...

    Which delay to choose....?

    Hey guys, so I’m looking at getting a delay pedal of some sort, but I can’t decide what “style“ I want. I know I don’t want a digital delay, I want something a little more Lo-Fi. I can’t decide whether I want to get a simple analogue delay, or and Echorec, or Echoplex, or Roland “Space Echo”...

    Barber/Clark Gainster?

    Hey guys! I have the chance to buy a Gainster pedal for about $180 CAD (about $140 USD), but don’t know if it’s worth it? Good price? Good pedal? Thoughts?

    Paint or polish?

    Hey folks! Looking for opinions. I bought one of those cheap Wish “Klones” and I’m making it “unique”. I’ve stripped all the paint off and discovered it’s aluminum, and now I’m debating whether or not to paint. I’m going to be putting some sort of printed decal if I paint it, or I’ll laser etch...
