    New super lightweight wireless...

    I can recommend the Ammoon one, based on my experience. It's an inexpensive solution, and I'm impressed. The key is "will it hold up over a long gig?". That is not something I've tested.

    FYI, the Ammoon wireless system has been working flawlessly.

    New super lightweight wireless...

    There is a new router in the sanctuary. But really, last evening, it was solid. For whatever reason, this past Sunday morning, it didn't connect. So, good ol' cable as a backup.

    Worked well at rehearsal this evening. It does seem to be a little finicky, but was solid for a good hour and 1/2.

    U2 - “Zooropa 360” Clip

    Really not bad. Sounds pretty close to that live version. The original studio album takes it, IMO, but still a nice job trying to replicate that live sound.

    Drive Block Status

    I completely agree. I used to own a room full of very nice amps (cabs too, of course), and tons of pedals. My favorite tones (clean, break-up, drive, etc.) always came from the actual amp. No pedal replicates that fully. The only thing that came really close were the Kingsley pedals. They are my...

    BMI, ASCAP, etc. suing bars?

    I'm not one of those people who believes music should be free, or that "professional" and "musician" is an oxymoron. That's a construct of a failing society. Very dystopian. If this helps boost the profession of musicians, I'm all for it. Music itself transcends money. But it still makes the...

    Phil Keaggy

    The reason (along with keeping my dad's memory alive) I became serious about guitar. 1991, Beyond Nature. Truly inspirational. I finally started being able to play those compositions at age 42. I just got to see him in Nashville, at the Sing! Conference. I've been in touch with his booking...

    Anyone using a piezo-equipped guitar? What amp model?

    Ideally, a high gainer, with a Metal Zone. Seriously though, good post. I'm interested, too. What I would want to do is use an acoustic IR with the piezo, typically (not necessarily always). So you guys are saying the IR isn't really necessary? I'm surprised. I always felt it helped with the...

    Matching a Klon Centaur

    When I played one, it was largely a "feel" thing. Really cool what it does, but I've found similar flavors in the Axe FX that I like at least as much (and I've been through a ton of great pedals over the years, just like most of you guys). Same old story: there's still nothing quite like the...

    Axe-Fx III and Headphones

    Warranty was 2 years and the repair was needed not long before it ran out. I look at it this way, Blue has since replaced the MoFi with other headphone lines. And, it makes sense to me that a good set of cans with a good headphone amp should do the trick.

    Kingsley Jester into Axe III

    As a huge Kingsley fan, I'm interested in running a Jester (or Jouster, Juggler) into the Neunaber Iconoclast Speaker Simulator. That would be a killer mini-rig.

    One of these is not like the other. Klon/Centura content...

    Can I have your bike? LOL (damn I need to start riding again...) And yeah, I'm inclined to agree with your post. Sure, there was something really unique about the Klon I played. Then again, it was though an awesome Twin, with a fantastic ES335. So, that certainly had something to do with it!
  49. pima1234

    One of these is not like the other. Klon/Centura content...

    Now if only I had the opportunity to play electric once in a while... I could actually enjoy it at stage volume. Yes, it's a great pedal.

    One of these is not like the other. Klon/Centura content...

    Right. I can get so much of what I want out of the available choices in the Axe FX (II or AX8). That being said, I have never used a good drive pedal in front of my AX8, so I would only be comparing with a real amp. As of now, my only analog gear is an ADA Rocket A10 and an early Ethos pedal...
  53. pima1234

    One of these is not like the other. Klon/Centura content...

    So you're saying the hype is real? I agree, having played the real thing (actually, a Klon Centaur Gold). Loads of amazing pedals out there, and yet a real Klon does have something unique going on.

    I was able to play on a real Klon Centaur a while ago. Really wonderful pedal. Definitely NOT $1500 good, but I was surprised, and I've owned a ton of great drive pedals over the years.

    Axe-Fx III vs Kemper Profiling Amp

    This is hard to explain, but I feel like I was hearing an actual guitar amp better with the III. The Kemper in no way sounds bad. I enjoyed it when I owned one. (I cannot wait to get a III someday!) Clearly, it's difficult to accurately compare the two, but nice job.

    All major/minor chords consist of only 3 notes. A C chord is C-E-G. Am is A-C-E.

A C/A chord is not technically...
