    NPBD Grape Ape V.2

    I really started getting into building pedals during the pandemic, and acquired a few others over the last few years. I figured that eventually I'd get around to revamping my board. Grape Ape V.1 Well a couple things happened and I made my move. I bought a Boss Nextone Special that has an...

    How's Your Weather Today?

    You sleep for one day... It *seems* to be tracking more to the west each model run.

    How's Your Weather Today?

    Frankly, I wouldn't really know how today went. Other than being up briefly monitoring for FedEx while SWMBO was out getting her eyes checked, I've been asleep all day. I got the updated Moderna jab yesterday evening, and true to form: it kicked in / I started hitting the wall about 9 hours...

    How's Your Weather Today?

    Where’s Lancpudin?

    That reminds me, I haven't seen one in an age. Granted I usually only shop online post holiday for the deals, but I used to get the catalogs at least quarterly.

    What did you do to your Epiphone today?

    I can't fault you for swapping it out. Presumably Switchcraft? While they are serviceable for a good while for a lot of people, sometimes an upgrade is for the best. At least you tried to service yours before chucking it in the Phuket bucket.

    Where’s Lancpudin?

    I get a Duluth Trading Co. gift card every Christmas from the in-laws which I use to rotate out any underoos that are worse for wear. As a kid I'd have been mortified at the thought, but as a middling aged fellow, I rather look forward to the annual gift card. No fuss, no muss, and if pressed...

    Fender Tone Master Princeton Reverb

    I've been saying since the top, that the lack of an effects loop is ultimately what moved me to look for a new amp. Ultimately, it's also what turned me off the otherwise very interesting ToneMaster line. I'm guessing you didn't take the time to use any of the software? Change out any on board...

    Where’s Lancpudin?

    Confirmed. I forgot what letter salad brand she said, but they're definitely the brown parchment paper looking ones. Various sizes.

    What did you do to your Epiphone today?

    When I was building my G400, the Triple Shots let me cover a lot of ground with just the one guitar. Granted, you need to pick a pickup (or set) that "does the thing" in all of the positions, but it can be a useful tool if you're limited to one axe for whatever reason.

    I Got The Trilogy

    Umm actually... 🙄 Dang guys, just be happy dude got his axes. If Epi decides to another run in 10 years and put binding on the old style headstock "greatest hits" style - do you think the average player is going to care? Not everything has to be period correct on a new guitar.

    I Got The Trilogy

    A nice trio. Thanks for confirming what I thought I remembered with your sig. The last reissue was about 10 years ago. The current models however, benefit from the improvements Epi has made over the intervening years. So good stuff.

    Where’s Lancpudin?

    SWMBO is a recent convert to the Air Fryer Corps, I can confirm everything you say about the food. Another thing that's become a big hit in the house are these liners she found. Makes clean up a breeze and helps prevent cross-contamination should she make something breaded in the unit. Celiac...

    Fender Tone Master Princeton Reverb

    I had a Mk1 Katana 50 for years. I found a couple of patches out in the wild that I was able to load in that I really liked, but I mainly used it as an ultra clean pedal platform. I'm not going to hype up my Nextone Special on a Fender thread, (I have my own to do that), but it does what it...

    Fender Tone Master Princeton Reverb

    Except that Siemens doesn't make vacuum tubes and hasn't for years if not decades and dang sure not in Germany. There are some NOS ones out there, but the on!y places making new ones are China (though supposedly they lost a factory in a flood) and Russia. The Russians make the vast majority...

    Inexpensive Pedals, Multi Effects Units, Pickups and other gear that surprised you.

    Meh. Last time I did a swap I just went straight to DiMarzio. I resisted the urge to get all fancy with bobbin color and (I think) caught a sale. Under $180 with taxes etc. for a set of Gravity Storms. Not super "cheap", but also not out of some goober's failed project. I'd toyed with the...

    Fender Tone Master Princeton Reverb

    A lightweight version of a popular amp from a venerated brand that doesn't require the maintenance of a tube amp? 🤔 Then you either run with whatever settings you dialed into the amp, or you keep a laptop (or whatever) with the software installed. It's not as though you can't run old software...

    NPD x 4

    Yes, these have all been integrated into the new version of my board. I've never owned a DS-1.
