I love it

On one hand it's a whole lot more than I need, I'm a dad and work on cars more than I play guitar, but if I can buy that setup for cheaper than a second hand Marshall mode 4, why the hell not right!?

Well, we have some things in common. I too am the father of a 7 yr old little angel named Bella-Rose. I too work on cars and trucks. I have a couple of tire shops in Louisiana. My job comes first because i have lots of people depending on me but my passion after following in 3 generations of tire dealers is music. I have always wrote poetry and songs for as long as i can remember but i never had any intention of going any further. I knew where i'd be and besides a detour to the Marines by way of the prison system, i have arrived where i was supposed to be. I mounted and sold tires in grade school with my dad. Now that i can make a little time i have started to play a few more shows with friends and have spent lots of time getting music tracked so my little girl will have a head start if she chooses music. I also buy #### i don't need if the price is right and i end up needing it anyways. I think we can understand each other and nice to meet you. Thanks

How old are you then Brandon?

I'd love my own workspace, I work as a welder and spray painter in my job but the cars are my pastime, I'd have my own exhaust making business if I had the space, but renting one in the UK right now is crazy money!

Yeah I guess so.

Frustrating though, but the misses is not keen on me making stainless exhausts in the spare room, had enough trouble convincing her my amp was a good practice amp and belonged in the living room!

My rig is always a complicated situation but..for the song i'm wrapping up i used mainly my blue tele and mesa. I used one fuzz pedal and that was Fredric Effects unpleasant companion. That fuzz is so obnoxious but in a fantastic way. I also used my ehx sitar pedal and here is where it gets tricky. The sitar pedal has 2 outs. One for lead and one for sympathetic strings with controls for both. I ran the sympathetic out to either a pignose or ac-4. After the sitar pedal on sympathetic out i used a small clone right before the amp. Someone told me to do that and they were dead on. It gave a little swirl to the drones. The other out, lead out, i ran into my mesa. I'll put a few pics. I have one more short lick to play and i'm going to use my jag and then i'm going to replay one other part with jag and double it with tele.

got any pics of the sitar? i rather like the two that i messed with, one was a rogue sitar guitar, and the other was a bon-a-fide sitar. with the movable frets and resonator strings, very, very,very cool, yet extremely confusing at the same time.

It's an effect by EHX called ravish sitar. I'm looking at real sitar's right now. I found one that needs strings and it scared me. HA! I'm researching them now because i want one. The effect is close though and it sounds like a coral or old dane electro g-itar.

Why have you down graded, other than maybe the noise factor.
