  1. the BYOC muff is good, apparently. im into the sounds you describe (im a massive pumpkins fan also), and i use a zoom ultrafuzz. theyre rare as rocking-horse sh!t, but sound so dense and thick. very versatile, can do the heavily compressed, boomy, muffy stuff, or can be more of a heavy distortion, or it can be used for lighter tones too. and does all the craziness of those boutique fuzzes that people pay silly money for. got a built in noise gate too, which can be used for corrective and creative purposes. on a cheaper note the behringer superfuzz can do pumpkins sounds. or at least billy corgan thinks so anyway - he posted a pic of one on their faceb**k page a while ago with the caption "new weapon of choice", or something to that effect. you tried a boss ds2? under the right amp conditions, it can get quite siamese dream-like.
  2. i like it a lot. but, like wiseman, cant afford it. but i cant afford more than one pair of footwear at a time, so all guitars are out of my price range, including one of my own, which needs a new nut. the new jaguarillo is pretty cool too, but its a terrible name. really terrible actually. still, at least fender bother to name their guitars, unlike some companies who use a string of numbers n letters to identify a guitar.
  3. that jag is so tasty, hnb. it would look ace with all black plastics on it i reckon. thats what id be tempted to do anyway, that and a bridge humbucker.
  4. sick! my JetCity goes up to nine, presumably 'cause its basically a small Soldano. regarding fx, as far as im aware, anything gain/volume based should go in front of your amp, and the time based stuff goes in your loop. but then ive heard of people using eq pedals in fx loops. i guess an eq pedal is a lot less aggressive in some way to a wah.
  5. good stuff! but i wouldnt put your crybaby in the fxloop tho. im sure its bad for an amp. probably not too good for the pedal either. so have you had your new amp turned up loud yet? when i got my jetcity i turned it up full, but only for about ten seconds.
  6. thanks for your reply. i dont have a camera atm, so no pics yet. i lent it to a friend n i cant get hold of her. i trust her tho, i will see it again soon im sure. and i dont have a phone either! (im a bit of a luddite). by smt, do you mean suface mounted? im pretty sure it aint, and it certainly aint digital. i tried to get into it once before, but didnt have the tool to get the pots removed from the case, and its got the components on the side i couldnt see.
  7. condolences smallclone. cant imagine what youre going through.
  8. welcome! i asked about something on here a while ago, but got no response, probably 'cause its an odd mod. is there any way to get more feedback from a flanger? ive got a rocktron hypnotic flange, and its so lovely n lush, real quiet n transparant, but is more of a very heavy chorus really. i posted a thread called 'flanger modding', cant be more than a page or two back from here. what ya think? ive since bought an onerr hydrogen flanger too, but theyre both so different in character, i think modding the hypnoflange would still interest me.
  9. THAT THING IS FOOKING AMAZING! got no idea what it is tho! does sound very low bit-rate. nice roller's thumbnail too! his accent is a lot like mine, i think hes from north yorkshire, maybe west yorkshire. cant be more than 40miles from me. have fun when you get it wont ya!
  10. super tasty. i need to get a fender in that colour.
  11. cant give you any technical advice, but it sounds like a damn fine idea. get on it!
  12. dont wana sound like a dick... ...but how about get rid of the jagstang, sell it to someone who wants one (no shortage of people wanting one) and get a mustang for yourself?
  13. get one of them kurdtz control plates, with a gibson style switch, and just disconnect the rest?
