Re: Recommend me a reverse guitar pedal.

There's a reverse setting on my Flashback but it's a one trick pony. Are there any pedals that are good for this without being too complex/expensive? I'm not sure I understand this entirely. Are you saying the reverse function on the Flashback isn't versatile enough? Yes. Can't get the effect to qu...

Re: On the Hunt for a Stool

Might be worth trying a few samples before you decide.

Re: Badlands Guitar Company

Reckon we’re well past being retro. The 80’s are to now what Vera Lynn was to the 80’s! Its bloody terrible to think about :( I think about it when I'm driving the kids somewhere, and Led Zep or similar comes up in my playlist, and I wonder what they think about it. Having similar thoughts watching...

Re: Do pickups matter for high gain tone?

I got pretty close to that Exhorder tone with a 5150 block letter and a cocked wah, but I'm a metalhead of the 80's and early 90's so I have no idea what mids are :lol: Apart from the fact you made me listen to Trivium, I really like that guitar tone and by the sounds for the reasons you don't. I a...

There's a Friedman mini on FB with a $400 start price, but I get the feeling reserve might be higher. :mrgreen:

Re: Adding a gain stage

The cheaper option is to try some different pedals: buy one and if it doesn't work, you can sell it on; rinse and repeat. Then at least you'll know whether it's an option or not. Then you can decide if you want to invest more in this amp trying to get it to do what you want, or move it on for someth...

Re: Recommend me a practice amp for hard rock and metal
