Chaps - my old man’s visiting the big smoke today. He was planning a Denmark st visit but are there any guitar shops still there? Any new alternative hotspots? Thanks x
It’s still there! All the usual suspects and a new Gibson dealer too.
Angel’s gone tho.
Great, he’ll be like a pig in shit then. Thanks
This place had some cool stuff: https://sixtysixtysounds.com/
Just ordered another one of those Harley Benton isolated power plant Jrs. Outrageous value.
Was just deciding what to put on the board to take out to first rehearsal session with the new amp and was taking off the reverb and tremolo because i have them in the amp now... but the amp tremolo seems not to be working. Was fine last week but just nothing. Could be the switch? Not sure.
Anyway, put the T-Rex Tremster back on for now. This is going to sound totally sacrilegious but... I think I prefer it to amp tremolo anyway. *cringes
Obviously, Fender tube amp spring reverb is a thing of rare beauty but although the tremolo in these Silverfaces is good... honestly, I think a good pedal can sound as good or better. Anyway, at least i'm not too bummed about the trem packing up for now. I'll look into it soon enough.
I have a question; Ballad of El Goodo guitar sound, phaser?
This seems to pretty much nail it.
Urquhart Guitars Leo. I'm smitten <3
I'm a little bummed about this but I've had a large bill so needs must - I'm flogging off a few bits:
Fender Jaguar (CIJ) in sunburst - £500
Esp LTD EC-256 in black with bigsby - not very glam but a proper Les Paul workhorse, even has switchable pups - £150
MXR Carbon Copy Delay - £100
Orange Micro Dark head and cab - £100
EHX Triangle Fuzz - £70
Mooer Yellow Compressor - £40
What’s the amp like? Does it do clean well, or can it only ROAR?
It's tiny tiny tiny - even smaller than the Tiny Terror.
I think you probably could run a proper cab off it, it's 20w, but I've always thought of it as something to use at home (or stick in your guitar bag as a backup) more than anything else. It goes quite dirty but you can keep it clean - surprisingly good for surfy stuff too, nice sharp attack.
Ouch. Sorry to hear that mate. I’d probably be up for a couple of bits but I’m hurting after buying the amp
My pickups finally arrived - ended up getting a deal on a pair of Suhr Woodsheds. In yet another sign of impending decrepitude, I decided against anything too hot.
I'm going to have to fire up the dremel and start putting this thing together!
String trees have arrived in just 19 days from Ali, what a pleasant surprise!
My humbucker cover on the other hand is still in transit since early October, let's see if I can get it by the holidays... Also, I should get a black nut too.
Something something black nut
