  1. I haven't seen any for that cheap, but I use a Line 6 G50 and it works great. However, I only use it at gigs. The "cables lying around" problem at home is part and parcel of marrying a guitarist IMHO. I wouldn't burn up batteries to play wireless sitting 5-10 feet from my amp at home. When I play with people who use a wireless even at practice I wonder why?
  2. That's really beautiful. It's like a super high end Kramer Pacer Carrera from back in the day if anyone remembers those. "None more black."
  3. I have it. I'm away from home right now, but I can probably get it to you next week.
  4. Yeah, that doesn't sound like anything I'd like to open a conversation with if I might be trying to do business with somebody for the first time. I'm interested in the story though, if you'd care to share it.
  5. Wow! I should be so lucky. I remember the shop as being junky as hell (not that there's anything wrong with that!). You really had to look around to find the few gems they might have had hiding somewhere.
  6. Thanks for the reminder. I used to have to go to Lanham fairly often and I always went to Atomic Music and that CD store that was close by. I would not have even remembered the name of it now. It's been 10+ years since I've been in the area. Glad to see they're hanging on.
  7. Man, I love that Vector but I am buried under guitars I don't play now. I definitely don't need another!
  8. I'll be working in Lanham, MD next week. I'll be driving from Richmond and will probably go up 301, so I plan to go to Island Music in La Plata on my way up or back. Any other suggestions?
  9. One of my best friends is a drummer that I played with more and longer than anyone else over the years. His favorite band is Angel, and because I respect his opinion I've listened to them many times over the years and I just don't get it. Their music just doesn't reach me somehow. Lucky for him, through the magic of the Internet he became friends with them over the years. He's driven as far as St. Louis from VA to see them and all kinds of places north of here like NY, NJ, MD, PA, etc. He's made drum heads for them and they stop by his house when they come through our area. They've even stayed there a couple of times to save money. Years ago, they were going to do 7-10 west coast dates and they asked him if he wanted to drum roadie for them, an offer he accepted. Setting up for the very first show, he broke his ankle and ended up in the hospital for a few days and missed the entire run of dates. He's still in touch with them regularly and they've sent him all kinds of promo materials and even demos of songs they never released.
  10. There's a new thread about the CITES restrictions being lifted with a link to an article. You might want to check that out here.
  11. Welcome to the HFC! Great place to be.
  12. Somewhere in this thread way, way back there should be some posts and pics from when I did have a turn. I'd be more than happy to take another though, and it would give us an excuse to meet up and jam!
  13. That would be cool to see, and I'll bet they'll have a lot of fun playing together.
  14. One of my favorite Led Zep songs. You really did a good job. I liked the tone and effects on the solo.
  15. Sad. I enjoyed his posts and he'll be missed here and by all the others who loved him.
