    I’m really surprised by this little unpretentious box. It KICKS ASS!

    I just got home with this. It's a VVT X-40. It's a Dumble style amp. The head only weighs 20 pounds. The cab is about 35. It is closed back, ported, and has an Eminence Delta Pro 12A speaker in it.




    I'm a sucker for custom color head/cab sets!

    I found a deal on CL I couldn't pass on. MIM, really nice shape, have my friend Russell setting it up for me. It had an .052 E!

    Not a purchase, but traded my MusicMan RD115 One Hundred for a small SS amp. So far I like it, 22# sounds a lot bigger than it is!

    This place has been a graveyard lately (Halloween hangover?). I'm on a quick trip to Florida to receive an award and have turned it into a four museum marathon. I've been to the Dalí, the James, the Museum of the American Arts & Crafts Movement, and the Imagine Museum (glass art). All of them are in St. Petersburg, and three of them within walking distance of my hotel. As my trip comes to an end, I paid a visit to Seven C Music, a place I found last year, and is partly owned by Dave Hosler, a master luthier who joined Taylor Guitars in 1996 and eventually became their V. P. of Customer Service, Repair and Quality Control. He designed the Expression System and Expression System 2 for Taylor, and led the development of their T3 and T5 solid body guitars.

    On my last trip, I saw the work they did on a customer's old, beat-up guitar and decided they would be my choice to restore my old 1971 Framus 12-string. So, I stopped by, got some tips about how to pack the guitar to bring it on my next trip, talked with Dave a bit, played a nice Taylor acoustic, and then decided to pop for a t-shirt. They have a very nifty logo!

    I visit TFF about 3 times a day. Not posting much because I’m studying for a test I must take next Monday.

    I’ll get back to pestering y’all on Tuesday

    Just got this in on my pedalboard. Never thought I’d need one but it does help when you need to travel to play and use many different studio amps

    My Taylor GS Mini-e Koa is currently my go-to acoustic guitar, so I thought it might be appropriate with the chilly season coming upon us to get a long-sleeve thermal. Why not combine interests?

    I was at a local guitar show here, and picked up a few cables and a pedal from an outfit called Poison Noise.
    THe one |I got was distortion called The Crook. Has several different clipping diodes and clipping modes.
    All their pedals sounded good, There's one or two others I might be interested in, once |I get this one dialed in and I have a couple DIY kits I need to get built. I'll see what's missing from there.

    Re: What Have You Bought Guitar-Related In The Past 48 Hours?

    Around thirty years ago my youngest daughter was interested in my guitars. I bought a hundred dollar half size classical and after two or three lessons, she returned to playing piano. Her older sister was married with children and about the time her second oldest daughter entered kindergarten, the younger daughter with the guitar gave it to her niece as a Christmas present. A few years later, the cheap tuners broke and the cost of replacing it was nearly as large as the cost of a new guitar. Older daughter moved to southern California and as the kids aged, they became interested in orchestral instruments. Oldest granddaughter tried trombone (I sent one of the cool blue plastic ones and later, a family member's brass Conn), and the guitar playing second granddaughter wanted violin. I shipped a student half size Yamaha violin bought when a music store closed down.

    Cut to the grandkids' first Christmas in a new home... new Christmas tree, new kittens, new stepdad... happy 2022.

    Watching a video call as they were setting up the tree, floofing the branches, the guitar/violin granddaughter announces she's saving to get a new guitar. Violin wasn't easy to get accurate notes and she remembered how much fun she had with the small guitar she once had.

    Papa (me) has Sweetwater ship a Yamaha FS800 (with a gig bag) to granddaughter. It arrived yesterday.

    Very nice! I recently picked up a Squier Telecaster and was surprised at the build quality and tonal flexibility. Considering it was something like one-fourth the cost of its Fender-branded cousins, I feel like I almost stole it! Congratulations!

    Re: What Have You Bought Guitar-Related In The Past 48 Hours?

    Did some horse trading today. I got the bridge posts on my '11 R0 fixed, they had gotten bent by the case compressing when it was stacked up in storage.

    Since I've decided that I'm scaling back to one of each, I'm keeping the R0 and used the R9 to trade towards a Fender Stratocaster. I had 6 to chose from, and went round robin on them for about an hour. This one kept charming me with its chime and piano-like sustain. it's a 2022 '56 relic Stratocaster in India Ivory. It has an off-center soft V neck, 9.5" radius, 6105 frets, 7 pounds 9 ounces, Fat 50s hand wound pickups. It sounds incredible through my 4x10 combo.

    Here's a couple of quick pics I took





    Now to sell a bunch of more stuff and get a Tele, and that will be it for me.

    That's a beauty! Are you finding any difficulties selling things at a reasonable price lately?

    yes, I have. Trying to sell stuff these days is not easy, even when you price stuff below market and I'm not talking just 5, 10 or 20 dollars under either.

    I saw an ad for Warm Audio's take on a Klon, went to Sweetwater and asked to be informed when some more came in. Wednesday my rep called and said they had some and I said yes. it arrived yesterday.

    I don't have any Klon experience, nor do I have any with clones thereof. I know the word transparency gets used a lot, but this is clearly transparent (pun not intended or is it?) It adds copious volume if you want it, a good amount of gain that doesn't cover up the guitar or amp. All three of my pickups on the Strat still sound like themselves. My Super Amp works impeccably well with this pedal.

    I own a Klon clone myself (RHX soul food), and it is definitely a great overdrive

    Heaven knows I don't need ANY more gear, but I still find it hard to pass up a great deal.

    Sweetwater has these on sale for Black Friday, $599, down from $1099.

    At least I won't have to take over bedroom number 3 to make room for this!

    Responsible citizen that I am I sprang for this nice, little Martin 000Jr-10E Shawn Mendes Custom Edition, which is made from 100% Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified tonewoods. The case is also environmentally friendly, being made of recycled ocean plastic. No, I didn't need another guitar, but this one just looked so appealing that on a whim I purchased it. It arrived in four days and was in tune after I let it sit overnight. Heck, it's a Martin, right?



    And no, I have no idea who Shawn Mendes is.

    no idea either, but I like that guitar. How much smaller than a dreadnought is it? Parlor size?

    I'm pretty bad at describing guitar sizes. It's nearly identical in size to my Taylor GS Mini. The Taylor's scale is a miniscule 23.5" but the Martin is still only 24." I suspect these fall into the parlor category, but modern technologies and construction techniques have put these guitars into a class by themself.
