Re: Music that talk to me

Of course I love the blues esspecially the stuff out of Chicago from the 50s-early 70s but yeah I listen to a lot of other stuff also. Been listening to some of the early The Black Crowes lately, really enjoying it. Also listen to a lot of more obscure bands like The Steepwater band, Alabamia shakes...

Re: Is my amp losing its Voice?

VB, I would look at the tubes first, the preamp tube I think is used only as a phase inverter but it is possible that if its going it might effect the voiceings, I know on my super champ xd the preamp tube started acting up and made it sound different , changed the tube and it was all good again. Ho...

got a new overdrive pedal

My wife gave me a T rex crunchy frog overdrive pedal for Christmas. Looks like a pretty cool pedal , I'm very picky about overdrive pedals don't like them if they have to much gain or get fizzy or get the Bees in a can sound or are to thick and muddy sounding or to treble'e. But this one is a keeper...
