After years of being a Vox guy, I've finally converted to being a Fender guy...This is my new 1980 Fender 30, one of their last point-to-point production amps.

MORE FENDER!!!

Just acquired a 1969 Bandmaster Reverb Amp, including all but one original tubes!

Image

And I got a couple of those little Mooer pedals, one based on a Rat and one based on an OCD.

Image

The whole rig...

Thanks. So far so good. Sold build quality. The Black Secret does the Rat thing very well and has a switch for Turbo Rat mode. The Hustle Drive can be a good transparent boost to drive an amp or a full-on overdrive but still with clarity and fuzzy around the edges. Which did you order?

Nice. Yeah, same size as the Malekko minis. I got mine half off. Had to wait 2-3 wow for them to arrive on the slow boat from China but I'm happy I got them. How are you liking yours?

They were considered better than both Fender & Vox at the time and their original price reflected that !

I think they were.

So, a few changes. Bluesbreaker is gone :cry: Replaced by this badass in April 2013:

Image

No more strymon Timeline (sold it within a week) or Keeley Comp.

Here is my current pedal board:

Image

Guitar--> DOD250 --> POG --> POG --> DSD2 --> (DD3 or Dispatch Master) --> CE5 --> Box of Rock --> Channel A --> Pro Junior --> Channel B --> DOD308 --> Burns Orbit (this is my tremolo and treble channel)


The FS6 was returned so I could buy two mini momentary switches for more room on the board for a second POG and Dispatch master down the road. One switch controls the play/stop on the MPC60 and the other is for next seq on the MPC60. All live drums come from a set of 35 drums on an MPC60. I convert songs to sequences, and can adjust the set list each night.

On the way is also a stutter pedal, as I think I will be able to get a lot of nice rhythmic sounds with my playing style.

I find that spending so much time on synthesizers has really influenced my guitar playing. IE I am doing a lot more legato stuff, a lot more quick hits, lots of abrupt stops etc.
