I just got a Tascam 414MKII Portastudio to help out with my practicing and stuff. Since I don't have someone to jam with my instructor said a recording unit would be the best thing to get. G.A.S. has struck again!
I recently got myself one of those Sonic Maximizers (wich is a cool thingy). And I just ordered myself an Ibanez RG 7-string, so I can sound exactly like Korn and every other hard-pop band out there!! woohoo! (dear god, I hope you know I'm kidding)
In the last few weeks I've gone a bit nutz with some new stuff......Hughes & Kettner Tube Rotosphere,I think it is the ultimate Leslie emulator!!! A boss octave unit...sounds very cool in the higher register solos and finally a SKB floor pedalboard that supplies power to all my floor pedals(finally no more 9volt batteries!!)and it speeds up set-up and takedown at gigs superbly!!!
I wouldn't stand on it. But I do have a Crybaby on the right side of the unit and I have no problem leaning into it.Also having 2 effects loops makes it very flexable. I use 2 different amps somtimes (a Blues DeVille 4x10 & Tremolux circa 1955) and could run different fx to each. Pretty cool if you can stand the price. The more I use it the more I like it.
After trying my friends Harley Benton guitar from their pro series and being very impressed with how it played (although pickups weren't great) i decided to order one myself.
Now i really don't need another guitar, so in a way to justify my purchase i decided to get one with a floyd rose bridge as i don't own a guitar with one of these. The guitar shall be turning up in a day or two so i guess i'll find out if it was a good purchase or not then.
