  1. Sorry, shits been wacky, right? There is amp gain that's quite nice. It's low gain, but nice on it's own and real nice to stack into. Basic tonality comparison - The cleans, to my ears, sound like a Deluxe Reverb. Add a verb effect and you're in that ballpark. I frequently pair it with a Super Reverb for some stereo fun and I mostly keep it clean, which is against most of my other instincts for playing. But when I use a drive in front, I have enjoyed every loving minute. I haven't tried any sort of Vox or Blackface flavoured pedals in front, but I would be confident in it's ability to work well with either and beyond. It is a fantastic pedal platform. I have had great success with everything I have thrown at it. TS-type stuff, Marshall flavours, Fuzz (clean amp and dirty). All great. The PT15 also looks great, but seems a bit more complicated and the price too is not nearly as friendly. The Revv's are made in Canada, so that's a plus for me. Pete Thorn being a Canuck is cool, but Suhr stuff is beyond my rational reach. Yeah the G20 is more high gain oriented, but of course you don't have to crank the gain. It's cool/different for the midi capabilities. You can set multiple voicings, as many as you can program/your controller can handle. You can set the gain type (or clean signal), cab sim and reverb for each voicing. I may have gone for that had it been out when I got the D20, but I don't need the super high gain stuff.
  2. Great guitars. Had a USA so cal in Pagan Gold. I regret selling it, but I didn’t appreciate Floyd’s (I still think they’re fugly). It was a new old stock that was marked down severely. They slow released the different finish options. Some sold, some were gold and their sales went cold
  3. Congrats! They are great. Sound great, good level of flexibility. Enjoy!
  4. Awesome! So much versatility in the ZOIA. You can make it do whatever you want. The patches that others have made is certainly an advantage. Curious to know your journey. May pick a ZOIA up down the road.
  5. The Charvel I had didn't come with it installed, but it was included.
  6. Nice work. How's the heel look? Were you able to hide the screws and staples?
  7. Also the Chase Bliss Warped Vinyl is a cool one.
  8. Oh yeah, Zoia, if you’re into all that customization. That’ll do everything. But in the Echosystem, the reverse, and whisky, and stutter and freeze and ambient modes are all very “glitch” when you set them that way. Amazing sounding pedal, and the ability to run two settings simultaneously in either series or parallel (or left/right for that matter) make it even better.
  9. Ah, good. I was beginning to think I needed to pretend that I knew what an LO5 was and how it affected the eq.
  10. Where was that discount with? I'm a bit more limited when it comes to those deals, being in Canada.
  11. Certainly. They had been back-ordered for a while, and when not - full MAP. I will likely move the Flint and then put those coins towards The Amp. With the 100 watt version just released, there may be further dilution of the price of the original 50 watt version.
  12. Not in the market for HBs at the moment, but I have one of these "one-off" pieces coming, and I'm super excited for it. A Dynasonic-style in a filtertron shape/cover for the neck position in a Cabronita-type build. Also, need to throw it out there that the p90 set that Josh spec'd out for me a few years back are my favourite p-90s ever.
  13. The Amp is very cool! Was really interested in it for the reverb and trem alone, then ended up getting a Flint. Then a Revv D20 for direct in/recording applications. But would totally have enjoyed one of those. I'm still looking at them
