  1. So, any idea where to actually BUY an Artec? : ) It looks like their PEQ might be my best option but no one carries them, even on eBay.
  2. Thanks for all the replies guys. I'll have to see what I can find. Definitely a good pedal to have if you can find one.
  3. I was recently looking for amps on craigslist and stumbled across a solid state Yamaha G50, which has what they are calling a parametric equalizer. Instead of adjusting the volume of three separate high/mid/low bands, you adjust a single band by moving its center frequency and width. I've played around with filters like that in recording software like Garage Band and wouldn't mind having something similar in pedal-form. Does anyone know of any pedals like that? If not, I'm considering building one based on the G50's schematics. Brandon
  4. I have the Epiphone 2-button footswitch that goes with the BC30 and So-Cal but it stopped switching channels so I'm rebuilding it. Once I had the cable cut off, I was making sure I had the right tip-ring-sleeve wire colors figured out when I noticed that the ring and sleeve seem to be connected, or at least poorly isolated from one another. Just to verify, that's not by design, right? With the cable cut off from the footswitch, I was testing the resistance between the connections on the jack and the wires on the other end of the cable. When I test the resistance between one wire and the sleeve, I get nearly 0 ohms. When I test the resistance between that same wire and the ring, I get about 2.5 ohms. Similarly, I get 0 ohms between the ring and another wire, and about 2.5 ohms between that wire and the sleeve. But the tip and the "clear" wire are completely isolated from the other two connections/wires. Maybe this was the cause of the problem in the first place. Maybe a new cable would solve all my problems. Brandon
