Caline stuff is actually quite decent, had a few of their pedals, I'd imagine it is isolated...

Will test and review when I get it. At $68 shipped, if it works ok and is isolated, it's a bargain.

I had a Caline power supply a while back and it made more noise than some of the pedals. It got thrown in our red bin

I have no solid evidence for any of the following:

The CP-05 was probably a rebrand/clone of a joyo, which was just a daisy chain in a box.

The P5, it looks like they might have cloned the CIOKS DC5, which if they've done accurately, could be decent.

Just got a Caline CP-01 from AliExpress - it cost NZ$42.47 (incl. freight) and took about 4 weeks to arrive. The same CP-01 on TradeMe is $89.00 (incl. freight) so a good saving. Haven't tried it yet but will keep you'll posted...

Got a player series p-bass on the way. It’s in the Tidepool colour. Any thoughts on pickguard colours? Leave it as is or change it up? I’m wondering if a tort guard might be too dark.

I'd stick with white, mother of toilet seat or maybe a mint green? Thats a lovely colour though :)
you JUST KNOW some Tory wanker has thought of this idea already. Probably getting the inspiration whilst fucking a dead pig.

Yeah, it does look nice. I think it’s a bit lighter than lake placid blue

Finally get to post something here: TC Flashback on the way. I used to have lots of pedals back when I played lots of guitar. Now I have no pedals and hardly ever play guitar. Therefore, I reason that the key to more guitar playing is owning more pedals.

Nearly pulled the trigger on this, but the shipping's just ridiculous:
