    In this topic I would like to discuss Guitar and Pedals for you rock stars out there. Let me start out by mentioning what my friend and I use. We are an average whiney brat alternative band. With fast guitars, heavy drums, industrial synth effects and scarry bass. I currently use a Starburst Fender Stratocaster. For distortion I use a danelectro fab tone pedal.

    My friend uses a Washburn and an assortment of DOD and other pedals. Our setup isnt great, but its ok. I would take a gibson any day. (If I had the money ofcourse.) At the music store yesterday we saw a really nice gibson going for about $600 used. In perfect condition and shiney and red.

    Good deal and if I had the money I would have bought it on the spot. Right now for the band I am working on getting a few Gibsons, different pedals, a Marshall stack amp, and some good accoustic gibsons. So if you guys see any kills let me know. ;] Gibsons may not be the guitar right for you though. Everyone has their own opinions. One of my friends is obsessed with Fenders. Yeah, fenders are nice but they aren't great for what I want to do. Also, I would like to release this announcement now. When my band finishes the EP we are looking for artists and bands to either make a remix of the song or do a cover of it or whatever. So if your interested drop me a line and I'll give you some information. To say the least you may get paid on it depended if we sell enough cds and by the way we are getting so recognition now we plan to ;]

    Anyways, if you have anything guitar related reply to this topic for the discussion.

    Thumbs up

    I got rid of my Korg N1 and got a Randall RG100 with a titled 4x12 cab. Very nice. This amp has a lot better sound then alot of Marshalls out there. So if your looking for a good head and cab for cheaper the Randall runs for about $949. This is definately one of my best investments.

    Oh well why am I posting here its a guitarrist conversation lol

    ... pedals? yeah I do have one... a TRASH MASTER.. dirty distorsion pedal, old and pink.. someone gave it to me. I only used it once concretely, for a tune I composed with ... only a TR808 hooked to the TRASH MASTER pedal... i love this tune... its so distorded that toms are sounding like notes .

    No Idon't have one. Though I did use one for a day or two at a friend's. Back then, I had also the opportunity to touch some very cool vintage synths such as the TB303 Bassline, TR606 Drumatix, TR707, and KORG MS1 semi-modular.

    I am mostly a digital guy now... I love my VIRUS B synthesizer (ACCESS / WALDORF). For the percs / drums, I use an AKAI S6000 studio.

    I am actually moving to even more digital with a Pulsar II DSP environment card (CREAMWARE) where i'll process sampling, synthesis and mixing. THough, the Virus B will always be my #1 synthesis weapon.

    Oh well I love music equipment man.

    Question

    Is anyone using the Line6 Pod?
    I'm getting into playing guitar again (buying an Ibanez RG has got me back into it), and my old Zoom 2020 doesn't really cut it for decent recordings.

    I'm thinking about the Pod, Korg AX1000G and the Johnson J-Station....

    Any thoughts/experiences anyone?

    This whole guitar/pedal thing is a mistery to me but I think its really cool. It requires serious skills to play guitar well
