  1. ...and another one down

    Sad to read of the passing of Grant Hart. Too young.

    A year or so back I put to the band that I'd like to try 'Girl Who Lives On Heaven Hill' but they didn't bite...might be time to try again...

  2. Delay pedal problem

    18 August 2017 - 05:23 PM

    Hi guys, when I stomp my Boss DD2 it picks up the specific note I'm playing at the time and just keeps pulsing a repeat of that particular note irrespective of whatever I play after that. The pulsing note is impacted by changing settings on e.level, d.time and mode but not for f.back. [confused]

    Reality is that it probably costs more than it's worth to have someone look at it and test to isolate issue(s), but it's a good old pedal when it was working so worth posing the question as to what might be wrong and is it a simple fix? So I can at least consider whether it's worth it. Cheers!
  3. Pedal advice please...

    Hi guys, due to a potential line-up change, it looks like I may have to start playing at least some lead in my originals band – maybe sharing the load with another mainly rhythm player…which will be interesting in itself as my lead playing sucks. Anyhoo… I do want to at least make the solos suitably pronounced and different sounding to the rhythm parts and I’m not very co-ordinated when it comes to tap-dancing with pedals so pedal boards are out. What I’m hoping for is recommendations as to a stompbox I can use that with one stomp I can call up a single ‘lead tone’ to suit what I need so I can just turn it on for the solo then back off – same lead tone for all songs is fine…all simple as can be with least amount of programing. We are playing mainly for ourselves and it doesn’t have to be perfection.

    My ideal set up would be -> tuner –> this pedal I’m looking for –> wah -> What I’d like is to be able to have the pedal provide is:
    •decent volume boost to lift solo above band
    •slight delay to thicken and make more impactful
    •bit of fuzz/gain for bite

    I realise its multi effects, but my needs are so basic I prefer to avoid all that modelling of amps, cabs, speakers, etc etc. Is there something basic you are aware of that would seem to fit my simple needs? Cheers. [thumbup]
