Since this forum hasn't been populated lately, I thought I would add something new. I recently got some new equipment: Fender '68 Custom Deluxe Reverb reissue, and a pedal by Keeley Electronics called Monterey (a multi effect pedal that has tons of Hendrix sounds; wah, uni-vibe, rotary speaker, fuzz, and octave). I'm still playing around with it to get certain sounds/ tones, and loving the fuzz. I traded in some of my relix's: an 80's MXR Phase 90 w/ original box (save those boxes people), and 80's BOSS DS-1 distortion, a later version of Electro-Harmonix Holy Grail reverb, and one that became collectible, a Mu-Tron C-200 Volume-Wah, a pedal I bought new back in the early 80's. With the sale, I was able to purchase the new stuff for short money. You know when you are old...when the equipment you bought in your younger days has now become vintage and collectible. I have totally transformed my sound, and cleaned up my pedal board. I still have a Fender Hot Rod DeVille (4, 10" speakers)...now being cleaned up....but with it's 60W, I could never push it, unless I was playing a big room, which rarely happens. The big plus with my new amp; tube tremolo, a sound I have always loved. When I get my DeVille back from the shop, I'm thinking of using it as a pure clean channel, and switch between the two with an A/B switch.
good move.tastes change.about 8 months ago i sold off a bunch of stuff and bought a gt 1000,love it.lots of playing and programing.never ending options.
I got away from the big programmable multi-effect units years ago, and went back to the stompbox route. As I mentioned, I have the Keeley petal, a BOSS DD-5 digital delay, BOSS tuner, and a Fulltone Full Drive....and the amp has reverb, and tremolo; pretty much fills my pallette. All the pedals are housed on a Pedaltrain board, and powered by a Voodoo Lab power supply.
I wanted to try to bridge the channels on my Fender amp...just got off the phone with Fender, and a person picked up right way....I told the person that it was refreshing to get a person right away. He said it can be done with a patch cord between the two channels. I was also looking at an A/B/Y switcher box, which I can also switch between the two channels, or play both channels simultaneously. I also suggested that it would be good to have a pedal that is used to turn the reverb/ tremelo on and off, to have an LED light so you can see it the reverb/ tremelo is on or off.
