    What Are You Doing Here?

    Enjoying a fresh ground brew before I head out to Strat shopping. (I know, I know)

    A Nice Slapback Sound

    Most don't like reverb with slapback, but I do. BUT, a subtle room reverb I find works best, one with controllable trail. I can pull some terrific Sun stuff with a Fab Echo and a room reverb with the trail set almost to the length of the delay. This way your delay ends with a subtle "echo"...

    Q for all you finger-pickers

    I prefer a pick, however... I was playing Der Kammisar the other day and Falco's snappy little riffs sounded really good when I snapped the strings like plucking a bass line, sorta between the thumb and finger. Think I'll find ways to do more of that.

    What are the essential amps?

    After somewhat recently getting a Jazz Chorus, I've no idea how I've lived without one! I now appreciate my long sitting extremely dusty overdrive pedal! Playing a DD3 and a Soul Food through it, everything I do outside of my Western/Rockabilly is in that cute little box!

    Room Reverbs.

    I've been very impressed with the Fender Hammertone. I like a pedal that I can up the effect and cut the trail.

    Important Scientific Discovery: Different amps require different pedal board setups!

    To simplify what I carry around, my Western/Rockabilly rig got it's own 'Board' inside. I needed (of all things), to brighten up my little Fender amp, so I used a Soul Food OD with Drive at 0% and the tone at 100%, and a fab Echo... Acoustic Board: Flyrig AC, Dig. Delay, Polytune (to PA)...

    Pedal power - Do you ride?

    No really recent pictures, but I try to ride as much as I can. This little bugger has proven way, way more durable than I was ready to give it credit for! Perfect since I've been driving a Nissan Micra.

    Looking for recommendations for an inexpensive delay pedal

    A Fab Echo and a DD3 is really all ya need for pretty well anything. As long as they have trimmable pots, having a chorus and a room reverb makes the DD3 do anything the expensive delays do. . . . . . . That said, I got both the new Hammertone Fender Delay's, actually terrific little units.

    I''m a Dutchman!

    Over this way it feels like at least every third or fourth person I meet is Dutch. Weird. There's a lot of things I can appreciate about being Dutch myself, but nobody does Beer like the Belgian's! Proost

    TV Jones MagnaTron? Any users here?

    Seriously been thinking about swapping my Hilo's for these lately? Wouldn't mind hearing some in depth opinions either.

    MIC: Mental stumbling block…

    Canadian Simon and Patrick, Mexican Martin, Chinese Fender PM1... a few others... Fender PM1 has become my favorite and main acoustic. Play what feels and sounds good. Play it often and play it well.

    Scottish band Texas at Edinburgh castle last night... nice Gretsch content!

    That's cool they're still goin'! It may have been watching Glastonbury?, but I saw them on TV somewhere many moons ago and liked them a lot. That same show made me a Portishead fan a bit too and I fell in love with Republica!

    That one pedal...

    I get it, the tones and the times I appreciate didn't use (or have) pedals. But that's why we do now. What I enjoy for tone was once found in a massive tube studio console and ran through various "echo chambers". Things I can not do. That said... Room Reverb with the ability to dim and cut...

    Change gretschbuckers to hi'lotrons on G5122

    5420, went the TV-HT route. No regrets! Clear as anything, being so neutral they switch between my amps doing either Rockabilly or Eighties ballads and are well suited to both.
