  1. Just pulled the trigger on the LP 100.
  2. Well, I'll be! Guess I was wrong on those two. Thanks for the info, man! Glad I decided to ask y'all before purchasing anything. If everything I'm running is DC I might look into the Voodoo Lab Pedal Power 2+. I'd been looking at them before, but thought I needed AC power as well. I like the option of have the volt sag for the Tube screamer. With the Ts9 and Palisades I'm still experimenting. I really dig the sound of both of them separately for different tones, but haven't experimented with them together yet. I only have one 9v power supply out here so it's either the Palisades or the Echorec. Can't do both at the same time, so I've been running the Ts9 and Echorec together until I get my master power supply. My idea is to usually run them separately for different types of overdrive. Use the Palisades for heavier stuff, and the Ts9 for bluesier bits. I like to run my amps pretty clean and get the overdrive from the pedals though, so I may end up using one or the other pedal as a kind of base overdrive sound and the other for a boost for leads n such. Although, the Palisades has two gain channels and a boost already so that may not be necessary. Honestly, I've just had the Tube Screamer forever and just recently got the Palisades. I don't want to get rid of the Screamer but it does seem a bit redundant having both.
  3. Seriously considering going in on the SG or the double cut LP with the P90s. Super hard choice though. I've already got a LP (not a Gibson though) with a P90 in the neck, and I love the sound of the 90s. BUT, I don't have and SG yet and I'd really like one. Plus, my only guitar with a humbucker in the neck is a hollowbody so I'd like a solid body with one. I can't get both though! ](*,)Also, the LP has binding on the neck. That must be taken into consideration...
  4. One question on the 1 SPOT: It looks to me as though there is only one AC adaptor. Am I seeing that correctly? If so, do y'all think I'd have a problem daisy chaining my Tube Screamer and Wah together? There seems to be only one AC port, but it does have 800mA of juice which I think would be more than enough for the two pedals, right?
  5. Thanks for the info, gents, and sorry for the late reply! I'm deployed right now so finding my way to a computer for fun stuff takes a minute sometimes. I think that the 1 SPOT is exactly what I've been looking for, and a lower price is a plus. The rig I've been putting together is a Marshall Haze 15 stack and a Fender Blues Jr (with some mods from Billm) running together through an ABY switch (9v DC) at the end of my chain. The rest of the rig is as follows: Catalinbread Echorec (9-18v DC) Earthquaker Devices Palisades (9v DC) Ibanez Ts9 Tube Screamer (9v AC) Pigtronix Philosopher's Tone (12-20v DC (wtf)) Vox Wah (9v AC) Korg Black Out Tuner (9v DC) Not totally sure on the order I'll have 'em in yet, but that's what I'm leaning towards right now. Mainly it's the Wah placement that I'm considering changing. What do y'all think?
  6. Howdy gents! Been quite a while since I've been online, but I'm in need of some advice and this has always been a great place to come for just that. I've recently been seriously upgrading my whole setup and have added a new amp and a few new pedals. Enough pedals that I'm going to need to put together my first board and purchase a power supply. I'm a little confused on the whole AC/DC thing though, and wondering just how important it is. Don't want to sink money into a power supply just to have it not work with my setup. As it is, I've got five pedals that run on DC, and two that run on AC (all 9volt except for one of the DCs which runs 12 - 20v). From the research I've done so far there doesn't seem to be a power supply that does both. Now, I could most definitely be wrong about that, which is why I decided to just ask some folks with more experience than I. If any of y'all could give me some pointers on power supplies and building a pedal board it would be most appreciated! Many thanks!
  7. Can't believe I forgot to mention that! I'm working with Tv Jones Filtertrons.
  8. Hey ya'll, Been trying to re wire a tele, but having problems. This is my first attempt at electronics like this and I'm having some trouble. I've been trying multiple different wiring diagram but nothing I've done has worked. It's weird though, I keep getting sound and my pickup selector works but my knobs don't work. I've tried using all of these different diagrams and I've had pretty much the same problem with each. Any ideas or suggestions? http://tvjones.com/site/wp-content/uploads/TELE-CIRCUIT-WP.pdf http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/wiring-diagrams/schematics.php?schematic=2h_1v_1t_3w http://www.kandashokai.co.jp/flos/tv_jones/installation/pu_wire_4con.jpg http://www.stewmac.com/How-To/Online_Resources/Pickups_and_Electronics/Metric_3-way_Toggle_Switch.html I guess I'm confused about the difference in coloring for the wires for Tv Jone's pickups and for Seymour Duncan's, and what wires are supposed to be positive and ground.
  9. Thanks for all the replies, guys! I'd never heard of a lot of these and there's definitely some real cool stuff out there. I'd like to be able to play for people on occasion so the pedals and pods are out, or else that would definitely be the most space friendly option. I think I'll swing by ye old Guitar Center and check out one of these Yamaha THR10s. Been doing some research on them since you suggested them yesterday and it seems like exactly what I'm looking for. Something small, but also sounds good and is versatile. I like the Orange amps a lot so I'll probably check out a Micro Terror as well but honestly the Yamaha seems a lot more versatile. Also, it's battery powered which takes care of that whole power problem. I hadn't even though of that! Thanks for pointing that one out! I guess, while I've got your attention. Any tips for bringing an electric guitar as carry on luggage?
  10. Hey ya'll! Been a LONG time since I posted anything or even been on the forum. Been doing life stuff. I see a few familiar screennames and avatars though, so if anyone remembers me it's nice to be back! I am soon going to be leaving the country for an extended period of time and I am planning to bring a guitar with me to pass the time and maybe record some music if I can. I was initially planning to bring an acoustic guitar but I'm now thinking about bringing an electric if I can figure out an amp to bring along. Now this idea might be totally out there and not that great but I thought I'd see what ya'll though. I have limited space so even my blues junior I currently run through would be to big. I need something that will fit in a large suitcase with room to spare. So my idea was to bring a nice small tube head (think Tiny Terror or a Hughes and Kettner), and speaker with no cabinet. What do you guys think? Would the lack of cabinet make it all sound like crap? Thanks!

    Hey, Larry! Welcome to the forums! It's a fun place here, and there are a lot of really knowledgeable/helpful people. Even if you don't have any questions you need answered this place is also just a great way to waste time!
  13. P.S. sorry for not knowing anything about what you're actually asking about.
