Yes they are a PITA.  It's a slow process that requires a bit of patience....not like installing them at the factory when everything can just be wave soldered and go, that's for sure.

If you think you might want to send it to someone to get that sorted, I may be available to do that.  I'm in Wisconsin, btw.

Malcolm Young was AC/DC.  They could not be AC/DC without him.  A revolving door of drummers, a few different vocalists, but take Malcolm out of there and they do not exist, IMO.

True, everybody talks about Bon and Brian, and Angus always has the spotlight with the spastic schoolboy angst but the truth is that Malcolm made the riffs.  He preferred to stay back near the drum riser and hold that rhythm section accountable.  Not even a mob boss could lock everything down tighter than Malcolm, Cliff, and whichever drummer they had at any given time.   I never was a huge fan of Angus; I appreciated him but I always had a ton more respect for Malcolm because he just did his thing, did it better than anyone else, and didn't showboat, bullshit, or braggert his way through any of it.

Malcolm did more with 4 chords than all the other Rock guitarists of his generation together.  And did it with fuggin STYLE and TRUTH.
The world of Rock music owes a huge debt to this man, and we'll sing loud and proud all of his riffs.   RIP Malcolm Young.  We thank you so very much for your gifts to us.

Rack Gear / Re: Digitech 2112

I had a Triumph 120 back in the day when it was a new model.  It was the head (not the combo) and it was unbelievably heavy for its size.  I also had the matching 4x12 cab which seemed like it weighed the same as the head.....    :lol:

Cool!  You should name your Main Rig and Backup Rigs.  Plan A, Plan B, Plan C, etc.  :lol:

Wow that's really nice!  I wish I could find a deal like that....

I don't recall ever seeing one either.  "Heard" of them, (along with the Intelliverb) but not seen.

Very curious to hear how this works out for you!  :wave:

"Idiocracy" is a GREAT movie!  What Gerry said is bang on correct about it.  It's very funny but it does ring true in so many ways. 

I wish Mike Judge would make a sequel to it....

Sheez... what a lousy last few years it's been for losing influential artists.  :'(

Another gone too soon.  Martin Ain, bassist from Hellhammer then Celtic Frost has passed.

I didn't get to even hear the early Hellhammer stuff until about 2000 or so, but I was a huge Celtic Frost fan.

sigh.

Craigslist has gotten really bad with that crap these last few years.  This must be the Troll Age we now live in.   :(

MP1 / Re: ADA MP1 for Rhythm

That was pretty cool!   :headbanger:

"Why did I just make a sound....."   :lol:

A mistake I made a couple years later was to trade my 2 ADA 2x12 cabs for a Peavey 4x12 cab, and instead of carrying 2 rack bags I got a 6 space rack. My reasoning was that I wanted to condense my gear so I didn't have so many pieces to carry. As time went on I realized the folly of trading 2 manageable cabs for one heavy beast. The 6 space rack wasn't too dang light either.

How do I find the version number on the MP1? Is it inside?

I know I certainly prefer lugging some extra stuff if it's gonna be lighter than one big heavy thing.  I'm keeping my rig split into two easier-to-manage rack cases; once you put a tube poweramp in there then a single rack case gets more heavy than convenient.  Right now it's a 4U for preamp, fx, tuner, powerstrip and another 4U for poweramp and Powerblock.

If by version number you mean which Eprom is installed, it will say on the screen at startup.  1.37, 1.38, 2.00, 2.01, etc.  The most common ones are 1.38 and 2.01.  The early ones (1.xx) usually had the Line Level switch (accessed through a slot in the top lid) while the later ones (2.xx) usually didn't have the switch under the lid.  I say "usually" because a 1.xx chip can be installed in a later unit and a 2.xx chip can be installed in an earlier one.....even though it may not have come with that particular eprom from the factory.

Hi and Welcome! :wave:

While I don't normally use or rely on pedals for my Overdrive/Distortion sounds, I did pick up a few pedals along the way that I like.
Most recently I found a gently used EHX Soul Food locally for about $50.  I had heard it was pretty much a clone of the famous Klon Centaur and had also checked out a bunch of YouTube clips comparing these type of pedals, so I gave it a go.   Very interesting pedal; not my normal style but I really like it anyway.  I like that I can use it as a real nice Clean Boost as well as dialing up some Drive.  But right now I'm actually using it after the EHX C9 stomp to add that touch of Overdrive to the organ effects when I need it...WAY COOL!
