Now THAT is a pedal board. So many people forget a noise gate for reasons beyond my comprehension.and my pedal board:
View attachment 18811
it took me three years to create and build it, I've spent sleepless nights comparing only compressors to compressors, then more sleepless nights comparing reverbs to reverbs, and here's the result. the positions of the devices of course have nothing to do with the signal path.
I'm very happy with it but it was COMPLICATED to set it up
yeah, some people forget noise gates, and some people even forget a tunerNow THAT is a pedal board. So many people forget a noise gate for reasons beyond my comprehension.
Have you tried some pedals from Old Blood Noise Endeavors? Judging but what I see here, they'd be your kinda thing, mate. They make a few pedals you could use to replace that DOD Blues Driver that I think would make you fall in love.
I have the Haunt, Dark Star, and Excess and I adore them.
Clear sign of newbies Indeed. lol Especially when you gig, you might have a great padded hard case, and you might have got that Floyd-rose locked in perfect pitch, but the second that thing goes on a road, lol, yeah you better have an easy access and directly connected tuner in your gear. And your truss rod wrench just in case.yeah, some people forget noise gates, and some people even forget a tuner
I have not! I'm a drummer now of about 8 years, but I still play my guitar, and I usually just keep it around 440. I will definitely give this a try next time I want to shred! I'm a bit lazy and like to thunder power chords and pinch harmonics a lot, so I mainly play in drop C. As a result I worry about going too far down. Though, like most punky metal players I typically only use the bridge pickup and occasionally center pickup in tandem, and tend to have less attenuation on the higher channels for a English gritty gravel-like punch. Maybe that will balance it, or should I am for a different frequency? I appreciate the advice, mate! You seem quite experienced.btw I have my reference tone set down from 440 hz lowered to 432 hz for all my guitars, and that's a great difference. ever checked that out?
I have a feeling you won't be disappointed Their pedals have very dynamic ranges in attenuation and modulation control, so you can really get more out of them by even minor adjustments compared to some of their peers. Something I know most guitarists like besides the pedals themselves. Their distortion models can range from adding mild Cream like crunch to turning your gear into a sonic flamethrower.cool, thank you for that advice, I have never checked out those ones yet but will do. and I'm gonna give you my feedback about as soon as I did. those four drive/distortion pedals I use mainly to kinda spit on my amp since almost all my didtortion comes from my amp itself, and with the one or other drive pedal infront of the amp it all comes a lots fatter. pedal created drive and distortion to a clean channel sounds horrible to me.
btw that Neunaber Shimmer thingy top row third from the left on my board is a great thingy. suitable for clean sounds only, but one of my favourite pedals ever had in my hands.
I've sent you a pm, did you receive that? not sure if it worked.Here we go! My mum isnt the best photgrapher in the world, but I think this will do fine. I dont want to trouble her again so Ill find out the exact model number and type during my next visit. She came with a bit of wear and tear, and I keep her covered, but she needs a little cleaning during my next visit. Vaccuum tubes still work wonderfully and last I was in the back I had it pretty immaculate. I hear you can replace them with a certain model of Mesa-boogie if they ever go bad, but I've never had that problem and pray I never do. I want her to stay as she is.
Edit: She took a look for me and its a Valvestate 100V Model 8100 The only issue is that even on nil its ridiuclously loud if I'm not playing a gig, so I usually use my Blackstar ID:Core V3 (20) to save my parents (and our cats) some grief

No but I've been thinking about putting them in my Solar. Apparently they're a much more versatile active pickup than EMG for example.Does anyone have any experience with Fishman Fluence pickups? How would you describe their tone? How good is the vintage/modern voice switching? Are they versatile?

But I also dislike active pickups so am also considering Bare Knuckle.
