    I like how the photo caption embeds a roman numeral "III" in the word "Alllll".

    Refer to OP. Adam's been on the same AX8 for years. Still is.

    Full stereo.

    We're using the Band-Commander, ODS-100 HRM, Friedman BE C45, and USA IIC+.

    Matchless and Marshall cabs.

    Do you also leave all the stickers and pickguard films on your guitars? My OCD needs you to peel off that film. I can come by if you can't be bothered.

    Do as you wish. Just makes me twitchy. I have problems and freely admit it.

    Wonder how that works. Are only the effects stereo, or are there two amps/cabs, one pair for each channel? Or is there some panning of guitars?

    More on topic, I'm sitting 10 feet away from a '68 dripface Bandmaster I picked up for a song at Atomic Music when they were at their old location. I was pleased as punch when I bought my Axe-Fx II that the very same amp I gigged with was modeled... mine can't have been made more than a few months apart from the one that Cliff modeled. It was an impulse purchase because I'd read that Ronnie Montrose used a "Bandmaster" in conjunction with a Big Muff for Montrose's first album. Little did I know that 99% of that album was actually a dimed tweed Bandmaster as opposed to the Blackface AB763 circuit one that I ended up with. Tremendous amp regardless. I do, however, find that on the real amp the Normal channel sounds fuller and takes dirt pedals better than the Vibrato channel. Shame the Normal channel isn't modeled, though I think the Princeton is basically the same thing since it also has a TB tone stack and is modeled.

    The vibrato channel is loaded down by the vibrato circuit. The normal channel isn't. You can probably get close using the vibrato channel model by increasing the MV trim.

    If it will ease your neuroses, what you saw was not the film , but a reflection of the hanging cables in front of the screen......but you did make me check.

    Hmmm.... I'll probably give this a shot later tonight, assuming the killer snowstorm doesn't break the seventh seal and release chaos upon mankind resulting in fiery apocalypse. Either way I ran to the store earlier and bought milk, eggs and bread! That way when the power goes out I'll be prepared with a stockpile of perishable goods and no power to cook them.

    Boil the eggs now. Rumor has it you don't need to cook the bread and milk. :)

    :-D I should have caveated my post with "all descriptions applicable to their respective foodstuffs" or similar. My point still stands... buy shelf-stable goods for "emergency" situations.

    Would love to see some of those patches!

    (I know it won't happen, but a guy can dream.)

    Another question: Is he all direct? Or does he still use a few cabs onstage?

    And the only time I drink La Croix is when its mixed with an adult beverage.
