    Korg Pitchblack and tC Polytune work well outdoors, and are cheaper. Even Clip-ons are more accurate than the tuners we used 25 years ago, so if your band's not in tune using new tuners, it's not the technology.

    My experience is that there is no such thing as "one amp" that does it all; and yet you can use any amp to play. There are just too many parameters. Every room that you play in, is not your familiar room, or studio.

    That "one perfect tube amp" thinking will have many flaws, eventually. "Is a tube on it's way out? WTF is different today?, etc., etc."

    I been through the modelling phase; then need a better modeller, etc.

    Sometimes solid state just does it for me. Just yesterday, it was 1985 at my place with the old GK250ML and the Gibson Studio Pro. The Studio Pro was used for the first time through this amp. Yesterday my ears loved that reminiscent sound of the old days, extraneous noise an all. Today, maybe not so much.

    There are many things to focus on, and many things to help you get lost in.

    ToneChaser...I haven't plugged the circa 1984 Peavey in for a really long while. I might just do that with my old Boss DS-1 and the '79 LP soon. Hopefully that radio station comes in as loud and clear as it did back then. I might need an old cable or 2 to tie it all together though. Heh.

    If I could, may I ask another question? Some gear lingo that I don't exactly understand and it could pertain to something I am playing! Don't know! May I?

    Well tonight is my first rehearsal with my pedal board. Can hardly wait to see how this set up performs with the Orange Amps!

    I am besides myself with excitement! Get to have a little meeting a band politics and then play with my board!

    It went really well but at first I plugged in something was wrong on one of the pedals! The bass player helped me to connect it properly! The pedals purred, growled and screamed! The Box of Rock with the Orange amp blew my socks off and then some! I didn't have the volume on the pedal up either! It was really awesome! Then I threw in the blues pedal and then delay! My ekko pedal! Love it! Yup, no doubt about it, I really love my board! I am a certified gear junkie! I am looking through guitar mags now and when I see pedals I just have to look!

    It's all of yours fault! lol

    There's a lot of choices!

    I love what I have and all though there's a few I wouldn't mind buying, I really have to budget conscious! My significant other half wouldn't be happy either if I were to buy more! I think I have pushed envelope far enough! I would really love the Orange amp that I play on at the studio at home! We're not thinking rationally!~ It's all a dream!

    How about the meeting? Did you pummel them with your Box of Rocks until they relented? AC/DC riffs at 40 paces, and see who's left standing? "The Youngs? You can't handle the Youngs!"

    Welcome to the dark side haha. You've actually arrived now.

    You're going to be buying more gear eventually, so you two might as well start planning for that now.

    Wata! That woman has the most pulverizing tone I've ever heard, bar none. She's also cute as a button. A DEADLY COMBINATION!

  15. I've recently been looking at the Boss ME-50 multi.
    Watched a few demo's and read reviews.
    There's a few on kijiji from $100 and up.
    Any personal experiences here?
