What have your latest purchases been for your instrument?

I just ordered a BBE Sonic Maximizer 362 to put in my rack and I am excited to see how it does with my amp.

My latest purchase has been my Mesa Dual Rec. My next purchase is going to be some sort of acoustic amp for my acoustic guitars.

Just bought my Jackson V and a line 6, but I hate the line 6, such a p.o.s. wanting to get into a new amp but dont know what to look in too, wanting to spend about 600, hoping for something with a good clean channel, and a heavy distortion channel, and hoping it has the warm creamy tone at the same time. Unlike this line 6, it sounds like its in a fucking echo chamber just cold and brutal.

Are you just looking for a head, or cab or combo?

Yeah I'd have to say that shying away from Line 6 amps is a great idea all together as they sound so digital and lifeless.

I would just like to clarify me taking a shit has more character than this amp...


I am thinking just a combo will be fine a 2x12 combo, 50-100 Watts, about 600-800 dollars...

I have been peaking at a B-52 but I have not heard much about them only what online tells me and that is not always the most reliable thing.

If you want to gig with it or anything, I'd say you should either save the money and go bigger, or else finance if the option's available to you.  I put together my half stack rig with $800 or so, I would imagine if you look at like a grand to 1500 you could get a good tube combo, or solid state if that's your preference.

My most recent purchase was the GT-8.  Unfortunately, I've found myself not spending much time playing since I bought it, so I'm selling it to my bro, who's going to get far more use from it than I.

My Sonic Maximizer is here (and so is my Necrophagist hoodie) but I have to wait until 5 to play with it. ARGH!

Clearly the maximizer. There isn't much else to do with a hoodie besides wear it.

A Peter Sawchyn 6 sting acoustic guitar. Hands down the nicest guitar I have ever played. Beats any Taylor, Gibson or Larrivee I've ever played.

You got convinced by Ronnie I assume?  Or did he sell his to you already?

No convincing needed, it was just a cash issue. This guitar is bang on everywhere.

Did Ron ever show you the Gibson accoustic he bought just before the Sawchyn?  What a piece of shit.  I can't believe that it cost him $3k.  They didn't even file down the nut properly, so it was out of tune at the first fret.  Maggie's $150 pawn shop special Yamaha played and sounded better.  I'm glad he got a good guitar after returning the Gibson.  It's terrible how manufacturers are ripping off people who actually believe that a brand name guitar is going to be perfect. 
I feel sorry for the sucker who bought the guitar after it was returned.

ZVEX Box of Rock pedal - pretty fun little fucker, makes the clean channel sound like a STACK and the BOOST feature is awesome for solos as well.

Also been enjoying my CAPARISON Dellinger 7 string guitar, sweet super Ibanez type deal.

I worked on a caparison guitar the other day, 1st one ive seen/played, it was a tombstone looking thing that came in a gatorskin coffin case complete with silk roses, i thought it was odd, its too bad the that model u couldent play passed the 15th fret (no cut) id like to play a double cut and see how they are.

My latest purchase would probably have to be my american strat, and yes gibsons are a brand name that are made for old players that like thier action a foot high and they should learn how to setup thier guitars to fit the rest of the worlds likes. And it dosent help that some L&M salesmen idiots just hang em on the wall cause they come "Setup" from the factory.
