    What gig ready precautions do you take before going live?

    - I always pee before and grab a beer or 3- More ritual than anything.

    Is the Big Hair amp based on the ADA MP1???

    The MP-1 was a great sounding preamp that was, as far as I remember, the only MIDI programmable tube preamp in the late 80's. It did sound like a hot rodded Marshall. Having the endorser roster they did was invaluable. I sold mine a few months back for $150- I was hoping the would be valuable haha!

    Axe-FX II Ver 6.0 and the effects on the Human Psyche PART I Cover Bands

    Just a reminder 95% of tone is in your fingers...play the right notes and the audience will be moderately impressed. ( they really only care if the singer screws up the words) Also, only guitar players care about your gear. ( I have had a few people ask about my Fractal- oddly enough, Fractal...

    Do the ends justify the means...

    Ed, I've watched you for years on the boards. I'm more shocked that you have so much 'free time'. Ha! You are the 99.99%. I lost a '9' or two- but I don't tell anyone :)

    Do the ends justify the means...

    Thanks everyone for the comments. I really do value your thoughts. The purpose was my friend in Nashville took a picture of Brent Mason's live board, which had 5 or so pedals on it. He posted it to the gear page, to show what 'real' players were using. I see obsessive people with ridiculous...

    Do the ends justify the means...

    So I'm setting up my Fractal to hit the road... As I get deeper, I'm continually impressed by what this unit does. I have fairly refined ears, so I know what sound is 'in my head' and use my ears to dial it in. This forum has been great for a guy like me. My question, and not trying to be...

    Nashville tracking...

    The engineers and producers are loving the Axe II. We started out with two Z's and Deluxe but using the Axe for everything. I am using an EP booster that I picked up today. Also got to hang with Brent Mason last night.Woot

    A sad day...sweet ending.

    Since I've had the unit for under 48 hours , I'm afraid it's so vast and amazing that, it's not going to make to the road until the end of January. My tech and I decided to take some time and get really, really deep with it. Sweet spot - I'll be Nashville in under two weeks doing sessions...

    I think I crapped myself...

    Thanks. I had the 18 watt for a bigger country tour last summer. It was great, as no stage volume was allowed. However when doing club gigs with a loud drummer- the clean headroom was gone. I agree it's a special amp. The new one is 30 watts. I'm playing with speakers and trying the Heritage 30...

    I think I crapped myself...

    The irony is a Suhr badger head came at the same time...I'm off to gig for the next two months and I thought t would take some time to tweak- wrong. In fact, the badger has been on standby for the past three hours?? Blown away! This thing defies all conventional wisdom!!

    I think I crapped myself...

    So I just had my new Axe II delivered an hour ago...I updated it to 4.01 and WOW!!! It's been a few weeks since my Ultra went away, and I'm trying to figure out why I own ANY other amps! Great Job!
