    Gift of Tone - 2022 FINAL - DWEEZIL ZAPPA!

    Back in the day it was said that Ed used an EP-3 Echoplex in front of his amp ..., but he only used the echo occasionally. What he liked was the "secret sauce" that the preamp section of the Echoplex added to his sound. Search up EP-3 or Echoplex and I think you'll find them .... It's ( 2 )...

    Whats the deal with James Tyler guitars?

    Whats the deal with James Tyler guitars?

    Everyone seems to rave about the necks .... But IMHO they do need to be "played in" just like any other "new" guitar ! I had opportunity to play one at a high-end guitar boutique in Milwaukee and my feeling was "meh" .... For all the hype, the neck felt stiff and unresponsive ( most likely...
