The Star Wars section in Hollywood Studios is pretty awesome if you're a Star Wars geek like me. Since this might be our last trip all together since we have...

    Fender Warranty Repair.. I hope this doesn’t become a problem

    So months ago my Superchamp X2 started showing signs of a tube socket issue after only 6 months of use. I contacted support and they sent a list of authorized repair shops to take it to. Then I got Covid and wasn’t able to make the journey. Nearest one is an hour away so with the holidays I...

    Played my Guild 12 In Church

    My girls sing in the church choir regularly and the music Director asked if I could play a song with her on Piano for one of the upcoming masses. What am I gonna do say no? So I brought the 6 and 12 string acoustic to see which one she preferred for the piece. She immediately went with the 12...

    Using Acoustic IR's

    Been messing around with Acoustic IR's lately. The Piezo sound used to not bother me and in some ways I kinda like it. But they also can sound thin and bland. I recorded a track a few months ago for a little project I was working on and got kind of frustrated trying to get a natural sounding...

    Would You Replace This Bridge Plate

    Finally got around to fixing an issue with the pickguard interfering with the swivel of the bridge on one of my strats.

    Line 6 Catalyst

    Looks like Line 6 has a new amp out that seems to appeal to the Katana crowd. If I was looking for another amp I would probably give this a solid stare. Has some good features and tones for a decent price.

    This is a really great song. I love how everything is sort of center panned and thin sounding until 45 seconds in and then it just opens up

    Book of Boba Fett

    Didn't see a thread for this.... took me three attempts to get through the first episode. One of my favorite characters of the Star Wars universe and all these years I wished there was more Boba Fett screen time and this left me wishing they hadn't bothered with it. I doubt I'll watch the...

    Pod Go users? Question

    Anyone here have and use one? How do pedals work on the effects loop? I may be gassing for this unit but curious how it would do with extra pedals if I wanted to use the FX loop.

    Tascam Pocketstudio vs Portastudio

    looking at the DP008ex. almost pulled the trigger yesterday but figured I'd do a little more research on the DP008ex and whatever else is around that price range. I almost got the DP006 but figured for a few dollars more it had some useful options. Anyone have any opinion on the benefits of...
