      You have nothing to be ashamed of. *Especially* with an amp like that in your basement.

      I found this absolute GEM of a piece of gear (the yellow thing). It held its own against much more expensive stuff I was renting.

      Good for mild to wild. It's like a Distressor Jr. Balanced I/O, sidechain inserts.

      well here's some updates, Im playing bass in a country band at the moment and I'm Frankensteining bits and pieces of my rig with my guitarist ( who is also a bassist).



      Korg tuner
      Sansamp tech 21
      furman power conditioner
      Ampeg Svt-4 pro
      Im bi-amping the Ampeg Into a Swr Goliath 2x10 cab and an Ampeg classsic 118, just got the Swr from the UPS man today, I'm very happy with it.



      This is my newest guitar, until I pay the rest of my Schecter off thats on layaway.
      Carvin B-5 active with a 3 band eq. First 5 string and I love it, I doubt I'll go back to fours.

      Then there's this guy, Tradition Gold-top Les Paul copy
      Upgraded the pots and no longer have tone controls, I run my guitars wide open so I might as well get rid of unnecessary wiring.
      Graphtech Saddles
      Graptech Tusq nut
      Seymour Duncan JB model at the bridge.



      Tradition Makes some sweet guitars and they're priced well, I'd recommend them to anyone.

      More updates to come when I get the Schecter
      "Apply liberal amount of VW specialty tool 361 "BFH" to Motronic fuel block and ecu until motor swap is deemed necessary"

      Yessir. I had a Setzer SSLVO before, went with this. Sounds great, plays great, but I don't play enough to justify a 2500 dollar guitar.

      picked up a cheap used drum kit, already did an OH mic check on it with the dead heads and playing with hands (no sticks yet) - sounds not bad!

      Tama Stage Star, cheap wood, 18" kick drum, came with an extra "firecracker" tiny snare.

      Need some good cymbals, a throne and some new heads. happy for now.

      heh. thanks. i guess.

      but i really do sometimes feel bad about how little i actually let the thing really breathe lately. so often just end up as a drummer by default.

      It's not even full.. yet

      Picked up some Remo Pinstripe Coated for the toms, still have to decide on a kick-drum head. Also, my kick pedal is awful. Any suggestions out there for a good pedal that isn't $200?

      And finally, got some hi-hat cymbals that, at least to my ears, sounded as good as some of the $300 Zildjan sets in the store - $110 CDN, and i walked out with "Dreams - Bliss" 13" hats. Allegedly all are hand-hammered and no two pairs really sound the same. I'd call that a plus/minus sort of thing.

      May 1985 drg chassis 105 tranny no stripe MKIII, Simulclass. Sounds absurdly amazing. Running it into a Avatar 2x12 loaded with 100w H75/M75 Scumbacks (a bit unconventional I know).



      And my baby, 2008 Suhr Standard.



      Have some other stuff, just recently cut down from ~25 pedals to 10, sold off my Mesa F30 and my Fuchs Lucky 7. Keeping it simple these days.

      THAT is a nice guitar. I am not a huge strat guy (love the way they sound, hate the way they feel to play) but I played a Suhr a couple of times and was in complete lust.

      Nice.

      Um...two brown ones over there...assuming you mean the one with the maple fretboard, that is a 1976 Univox "Eagle"...next to it is a 1990 Carvin KB60, Hawaiian koa.

      Its very speshal. It is basically a Univox "Ripper" (pun? strat rip-off?) anyway, they're identical except the one has an eagle sculpted into the body and then stained in brown. I learned to play on a loaned Ripper so they have a special place in me heart.

      DIRTY!! I like. Beautiful furniture, too. Looks great. I'm looking forward to doing the same down the line - right now my cable hell is, well, cable hell.

      Tired of kick-back and wobbly shenanigans, i thought i'd do it right, once.

      Picked this up this week.




      also, a few more converters. (sorry for the crappy shot)

      That's a pretty guitar. Is it one of the new production ones, or is it older?

      Duo Jet
      Also a very cool and often overlooked guitar. I'd love one of these someday.

      I think that's an AC15, but you have a point. FWIW, I don't have one either, but I do have a Night Train - one of the original 7.5w/15w switchable ones, with the matching cabinet. I was really torn between the AC15 and the Night Train. In the end, I decided I liked the versatility of the Night Train a little more - both the high gain channel and the pentode / triode switch to be able to run it at lower power were killer for me. It has about 85% of the sound of an AC15, too, and with a decent reverb pedal it makes up for the lack there, too.

      it's an '05.

      I'd die to get my hands on any 60's Gretsch guitars.

      I actually stumbled upon an old '69 Gretsch "Twin Reverb" amp that I'm having looked over by a local shop. I'll have to get some pics up of it, its not like anything I've seen/heard before.

      Its not pictured but I picked up an Avatar 2x12 loaded with Hellatone 60L 12" speakers and I am in tonal nirvana. On the Avatar website, they don't even off it anymore and for the life of me, I cannot understand why.

      Although, I wouldn't pass up a free one!
      Stretched, poke, rubbed......sounds like a porn stars butt hole.

      in the process of trying to confuse my friend into selling me this.... just did a session with it and i am absolutely IN LOVE.

      It's a 1982-1985 or so Mesa "Son of Boogie" amp.

      If one avoids using the the "limiter" knob too much on the end (i've read and believe after hearing it that anything over "2" will really crap out the tonality) - holy crap, its like having a mk1.
