The Caverners are excellent! I took the kids to see them a couple Canada days ago.allthumbs56 said:Over Labour Day I saw about nine different bands. I was amazed at how many of the guitarists either plugged direct to amp or use very limited effects.
The Caverners (Beatles tribute) use Tonelab SE's. Otherwise, there was a total of three wahs and one Blues Driver - that's it! No big pedalboards in sight and there was some pretty good tone happening too. Best tone was a Big Apple Strat into a Mesa Nomad (believe it or not), followed by an LP into a Soldano halfstack.
Inspired, I left my board at home and only took a tuner and my BB preamp to practice last night, 82' Tokai LP Custom into a Mesa DC-5. It was great. I didn't tap-dance all night and could focus on my playing and had a great time.
Not saying I'm about to liquidate my pedals, but I think it's good to take a break from them now and then.

Hi Chris :wave:

Guess the "DC-5 and BB preamp" gave me away :redface: Still lovin them both! You got that renovation done yet?
I don't "need" any gear ... but I've always been a little fuzzy on the difference between "need" and "want" :tongue:sh333 said:Indeed :food-smiley-004:
Reno is about 3 weeks away from completion. It is all just fussy finish work now.
I'll bet it looks awesome!
Need to figure out how to pay for it now. Need any gear? i will be pushing alot of stuff out the door over the next two months to stay afloat.
The next shipment of Eternity's is all spoken for already, but I will be putting in another order ASAP. Just say the word and i will keep one back for you. They are not cheap, but man they are nice.allthumbs56 said:I don't "need" any gear ... but I've always been a little fuzzy on the difference between "need" and "want" :tongue:
Right now I've got a big "want" on for an Eternity.
Seriously though, my oldest boy is getting married in November and I need to help fund that adventure so I'm trying to be good (so send me an e-mail if you've got anything to tempt me with...shhhhhhh).
:wave:Milkman said:Well, I'm gigging tonight and tomorrow night with a conventional amp (as opposed to a modeller / processor).
This will mark the first time I've used a normal amp and a couple of pedals for a gig in more than a year.
It will be:
Guitar - Wireless - Crybaby - Traynor YCV40 and I'll have a Visual Sound H20 Chorus / delay in the effects loop.
Of course the amp will be mic'd and I'll have some foldback in the monitors if I need it.
My distortion will be via the amp. If that's not enough, I may look at a pedal for the next gig.
We'll see, but as you tell from the set up I've described, I'm using only wah, OD, Dist, Chorus and delay.
That's all I seem to use.
The rest (good or bad) is in my hands.
Def. let me know how the H2O works in the traynor E. loop. i have only tried that pedal straight into an amp thus far.
