    1st time ever offered in SMOKE ORANGE... the BS-301 Mysterybrain tape echo pedal

    It may not be orange, but that silver Mystery Brain looks tough and ready for action! I always look forward to seeing the different color runs. And all these years, I’ve never noticed Brian had the 301 recovered at some point. So cool.

    1st time ever offered in SMOKE ORANGE... the BS-301 Mysterybrain tape echo pedal

    I’ve loved orange and black every since I stumbled upon this album cover. It’s equally the coolest color combo on that Mystery Brain. So you’ve got a couple left and one final batch of orange enclosures coming in?

    "Off Book" Pedal Usage Anyone?

    Just the standard stuff for me. But it did remind me of a JHS Haunting Mids pedal a few years back. Placing it before or post certain pedals can slightly change the use/sound of the other pedal. Fast forward to 3 minutes in for a quick explanation and examples towards the end.

    Boss RE-2 compact Space Echo

    Wait a minute… you like the Beatles and Les Paul’s? I don’t know why I keep coming back to this thread. All it does is feed the GAS. When what I really need to do is build up my bags.

    Delay vs echo

    One bonus for the Mystery Brain over a Carbon Copy is you get a kick ass 301 preamp.

    Boss RE-2 compact Space Echo

    I have no issues with some digital items. Some can sound really great. But things can get lost in the digital realm though. Take amps for example. Aside from the recent Fender line, compare many digital amps to analog. Maybe it’s in my head, but digital can certainly feel more compressed and...

    Delay vs echo

    Here’s a good Pedal Show one on the different types of delay I watched last year or so. I’ve never used a Carbon Copy but it’s an analog which tend to be a bit darker. Although Carbon Copy does have a Bright one if I remember right.

    New guy... with a small problem

    Welcome. I hadn’t noticed the GDP was down. But sure enough it didn’t work for me just now. It’s a slight different feel here but both have some great members. Make yourself at home here.

    Harley Benton new releases, specs i like !

    Didn’t Gibson wait years after the copies were out before suing? If so, they should’ve taken them to court immediately and not wait decades. House brands ultimately exist so the House can make more profit. Maybe it’s just me, it doesn’t seem right if it’s a close to exact copy. It’s no...

    Boss RE-2 compact Space Echo

    I’d try that RE-202 if I had extra dough for fun. Strangely my extra money keeps going somewhere else. It’s cool they added the memory slots. Hopefully it does Boss well. Initially I enjoyed the RE-20 until I bought my first Atomic Brain. It just sounded like the 301 Brain preamp opened...

    I’d personally get a genuine used Streamliner for a little more.

    Harley Benton new releases, specs i like !

    I might be a minority but I think the main point of the video is valid. Harley Benton is owned by I believe the largest European music distributor. This latest copy looks to be an exact rip off and not by some unknown company in Asia despite being produced there. The next model could be an...

    Gibson Introduces New Model

    Good or bad, it’s only fitting to post the original sketch for comparison to the end result. This is also from the Gibson Archive Collection. Seems to might be the first of a possible new collection line. Unless reception is as bad overall as it seems to be here. In which it should be...

    Gibson Introduces New Model

    I had no idea who this Theodore guy was. It’s interesting the bulk of Gibson’s popular electric shapes seem to have come under his tenure. Maybe that’s simply when the Gibson crew was more innovative. I’m not interested in the guitar to own or play. Definitely not innovative today. Sort of...

    Future NFT’s in music use

    I only understand the basics of NFTs so I don’t have the answers you seek. But it’s considered a digital asset. If you strip it down to its bare bones it’s built on a digital permanent ledger (blockchain). And it can be used for more than simply art. Regardless if people like it or not, it’s...

    Future NFT’s in music use

    As of a few months ago, the top 1% of Bitcoin owners owned 27% of the supply. In comparison… 1% of the worlds population owns 50% of the worlds wealth. Americas 1% also has 16x the relative wealth of Americas bottom 50%. In a way it sort of looks like it may fair better. Really I’m not...

    Future NFT’s in music use

    Yes, you actually own the NFT if I’m understanding your question right. I view the internet comparison to crypto is similar ways. During the adoption phase, many people brush it off and both initially had no regulation. But with internet adoption came utility that changed daily life forever...

    My time in both Asia and the Middle East made me aware of a lot of countries using a little water spray hose next to the toilet. Kind of like the ones for Kitchen sinks. You read way to into me reply as it wasn’t a dig at you at all. No need to get all defensive. It was more in regards to...
