    The day before my 63rd birthday last month, I visited a guitarist friend who has loads of gear.
    He sold me an 8" Jensen for my Fender Vibrochamp.

    Before - it had a Weber Signature Series (budget) speaker which was very clean and didn't break up well at full volume.....

    After - the Jensen (what you can see of it) has a much bigger magnet, is bassier (yay!) and has a lovely break-up, giving me a nice distorted sound at full volume.

    Amp experts will notice that I installed it upside down for that special tone.... [laugh] [flapper]

    Today I got this modded Boss GE-7 (via ebay), boxed with a psu.

    The GE-7 is a pedal that needs modding to remove the hiss, and once that's done it's a very fine and extremely useful pedal. 15db boost on the eq and 15db boost on the overall level too.
    Plugged in using supplied psu and found one slider had crackles and there was a nasty noticeable whine at 1.6k.
    Gave it a spritz with Servisol switch cleaner, powered up again using my Tandy universal psu and presto - working great, and totally quiet. [thumbup]

    And my friend with all the gear has a Marshall 1912 2x12 cab which I WILL have (I only live once), probably next month....will update.

    Best wishes to all!

    US and UK members may already have seen this pic on the news; a house (holiday home?) on the shores of Lake Ontario.

    Now that's cold! [scared]

    A bit different from your area Mr D!
  4. Expensive pedals

    24 February 2017 - 04:59 PM

    Andertons are on a bit of a pedal kick (geddit?) at the moment and stocking a mouth-watering selection.....
    Trouble is, they cost lots and these days even a grand or three won't get you that many.....
    I hadn't heard of these Vemuram ones - brass cases and very expensive!

    @Dub - are these more TS-based designs do you think?

  5. Fancy a Dumble?

    HA Ha ha.......ridiculous!

    P.S. Perhaps I should tell cb this has great tone???!!!! [laugh]

    Hi GMac
    Many thanks for the comment - our "Stormy Monday" starts like the T-Bone version but then our singer insisted on the Allmans chords....I didn't argue!

    Hey, jdgm! I wanted to thank you for the tip off on Allan Holdsworth with Soft Machine and Jean Luc Ponty. I can't wait to get both of those albums on iTunes. Also, nice job on Stormy Monday! I like the Allman's version. Have you heard T-Bone Walker's or Bobby "Blue" Bland's? Check 'em out! Hope you're well and happy in "anywhere"! Peace!
