    Interesting.

    I had heard about Carvin amps since way back in the late '70s but I've never seen one of their guitars hanging on the wall of a dealership.
    After a quick google I see that they have now reverted to the family name of 'Kiesel'.
    Some very flashy stuff on offer!

    Pip.

    I've only seen them do retail sales out of their shop in Hollywood. Most of their guitars are way too gaudy looking for my taste, but some people love them.

    About 8 or 9 years ago my friend and I picked up a Carvin X100B half stack from Craigslist for $200. That was a while ago but their resale value has always been poor, so it is possible to find a nice Carvin amp for dirt cheap

    Just brought an amp on the plane yesterday with me in checked baggage with a fragile sticker. Didn't work when I got it home, the power switch had twisted and disconnected the wires. I fixed it and now all is well, but it's definitely not safe to send a guitar or amp as checked baggage unless it's packed well enough to be thrown around with zero care whatsoever

    Thanks again for the support from you guys here.

    My friend did not make it, he did not wish to be kept on life support in the event that we were faced with so we had to let him go. Just got back from the funeral up in Richmond (SF Bay Area) at the recording studio where he was living. We spread his ashes at one of his hangout spots in the bay by the studio.

    The guys from the studio are going to put together an album of my friend's recordings, and we are planning on recording a song for it that my friend and I wrote together about 7 or 8 years ago. When it is complete I will share with you guys so you can check it out if you wish

    One of the positive things that has happened over the past month is that I was able to hang out with a lot of people that were with my friend up in SF that I hadn't met before and he has some great friends. We are all kindof like minded I guess so it will be fun to get together and make some music or something together in the future

    Wish I had better news, we all really loved this guy like crazy. I know everyone that passes away is sort of remembered as a saint by their friends and family, but this guy was really special. In over 10 years of friendship, with several of those years spent hanging out on nearly a daily basis, we never had even one arguement or conflict or anything like that. After our high school graduation, he didn't even go home to his parents house after the ceremony. He left directly to SF with absolutely nothing and built up an incredible community of friends, went from working at Starbucks to working on submersible drones, traveled all around the world. He had an amazing ability to have a big idea and accomplish it, and he was so humble many people did not realize how impressive his "resume" is. Just an incredible person that brought out the best in everyone around him. In 25 years he accomplished so much. I am sad that he couldn't do more, but couldn't be more proud and happy with the way he lived while he was here.

    It's been such a crazy weekend with my birthday Friday, traveling back and forth between SoCal and SF, and all the emotions. I just stayed home from work today to recouperate a bit. I think I'll use some of this time to brush up on that song that we wrote, which has the guitar tuned to a d minor chord when you strum the open strings.

    Does this mean you'll be getting a complementary Green amp?

    Congrats

    Will check out your new recordings. Cannot wait to hear more of your killer riffing and freak out the squares tone.
    Have you heard this OD pedal - Germ by Prescription Electronics? It's a Ge OD + booster. So gritty. I want one, badly.

    ProCo is great. I miss them because I had a friend that worked there. He built me a Rat once and I used to get their cables cheap.
    Don't worry about the Small Stone knob. I am kind of digging the pink chicken head. It says this pedal is a freak; squares beware!

    Brother, been meaning to write and say how much I am digging my Small Stone now. She's so rich and creamy; very different animal than my Phase90. Thanks again.

    btw nothing wrong with putting your rack tom in a basket. I like that better than mounting it to the kick drum.

    Wow! That is a killer drum set. The quilted finish reminds me of a vintage Gretsch kit. Bet they sound amazing. Glad to see he uses coated heads too (I think they have better tone).

    Are there any good schematics for the Klon? I heard the orig builder would put black goop over the components to mask them; not unlike the Harmonic Percolator.

    Pretty sweet, eh? Very different tone wise from a TS9. I run them like this
    1. Fuzz Factory (so it can oscillate)
    2. F-word Overdrive (set for medium dirt)
    3. OD808 (set for very light dirt)
    The OD808 is brighter so it freshens up the F-word.

    I'm liking the Wee Beaver Fuzz, but for $155 its a lot for a small little pedal.
