  1. I can't believe how much the Deluxe Memory Man costs now. I remember when I first started playing guitar about 8 years ago, TS808s were $80, and I had the Deluxe Memory Man used off ebay for like $120. Prices on pedals keep going up and up! Check out Joyo Pedals, they have a digital delay that's only like $40, and a chorus pedal for like $40. The two together could get you sort of in the ballpark! T-Rex Reptile is modulated delay, about $100 cheaper than the Memory Man at $240 EarthQuaker Devices Disaster Transport Modulated Delay $140 EHX Memory Toy, mini Deluxe Memory Man Subdecay Ec
  2. But superfuzz is right, the Memory Man is the Edge's delay of choice! There just might be some more versatile options out there worth looking for!
  3. Any analog delay will get you in the ball park. There are some digital delays now that sound very analog, but have the added benefit of tap tempo and longer delay times. check out the delay section of Proguitarshop. Also, modulation in the delay is important too, so search for modulated delays. Or delays like the analogman ardx20 that have an effects loop on the delay, so you could add a modulation pedal seperately, which is awesome, as you can also put phasers, wahs, distortions and other effects in the loop!
  4. Do you want an American amp sound (Blackface Fender) or British amp sound? For American amp, I think the best choice on a budget is the Luker Tiger, plus it's all handwired! http://lukerllc.com/
  5. Boost n' buff is great pedal man, enjoy it! No experience with the Seymour Duncan or MXR, sorry, but you'll probably be very satisfied with the Boost n' Buff.
  6. OH hey, I forgot they sold the tone monk buffer seperately, so if you just wanted the Buffer with no Clean boost this is it! http://www.tonemonk.com/vp.php Probably exactly what you're looking for!
  7. Chris Klein makes great pickups! Van Zandt right here in Dallas, TX are also a great company!
  8. A clean boost like the Keeley Katana, leave it on all the time at the beginning of your chain is one option. Or you can get one that is a boost and buffer that will buffer your signal even when the boost is not on, for this there are two pedals I prefer, one is much more pricey than the other, but worth the investment IMO. http://proguitarshop.com/mi-audio-boost-n-buff-pedal.html MI Audio Boost n' Buff, I used this pedal for about 3 years until I recently purchased this one http://proguitarshop.com/tone-monk-ankh-preamp-vp.html It warms up my clean tone so much, I always leave it on, but i
  9. the pedal I use most often is my keeley katana, it's always on. But it's not may fav. I use my zendrive ii and retroman dumbox a lot too, but really I'm feeling the clean tone thing so the Katana and Twin are the essentials for my sound these days.
  10. @ Earth I agree Sovteks are a nice tube, but how many other tubes have you tried in V1? I use Raytheon 12dt7s after my Sovteks pooped out in my Twin--which took them 6 years of heavy gigging to do, very reliable tubes--now I find there's not much difference in the tone clean, but with overdrive pedals I can definitely hear a difference in harmonic content.
  11. charlie parker is ridiculous, if you can read music check out the charlie parker omnibook. your head will explode!

  12. Hmmm depends on how much money you wanna spend. Since you're only changing V1 you may as well throw down a little more cash and get something nice that will really make a difference. If you've got about $50 you can get a Raytheon black plate 12ax7, better than RCAs IMO. Also there's the Preferred Series 7025 (super durable) from the tube store, an exact replica of the most sought after NOS Mullards from the 1960s. There are literally thousands of great options, I say go NOS for sure, otherwise you can just get your basic EHX or Sovteks, but if you're only changing V1 I say go all out! Edi
  13. I bought this about two years ago and only used it at one gig and our singer accidentally stepped on it when he was freaking out on stage and broke it. So it has been in its box ever since because I was too lazy to take it apart and see what happened. Anyways last week I took it apart and replaced the foot switch and voila, works like new. I had only used it at one gig so I didn't really remember what it sounded like. I plugged it in with my strat and twin reverb and got the best clean tone I've ever had. It adds this awesome sparkle and compresses your attack just slightly giving a reall
