thanks boss

i think most people hang on to their ada pre amps. it's a great piece of guitar. there are not many high gain amps that handle high gain settings without sounding muddy and compressed.

yes sir, that's a pcm 81.
it sounds amazing for guitar. it sounds huge. pain in the ass to program. the manual is like a text book.
very smooth and thick sounding reverbs. I have only scratched surface in terms of program. but the hall reverb patch by itself is already great.

you will be happy with both of these units.

for the fulltone, I split the left output to stereo and use the eventide to pitch shift. while leaving the right output completely dry with out the pitch shift. this results in a really thick chorus sound. I use the pcm 81 hall reverb to fill both channels up and lastly run it into a g major for delays.

update: eclipse micro pitch is to die for. wow..

last night when i was setting up my rig, i realised i needed more cables. i was stuck at work today and the music store will be closed by the time i get off. call me what you want, but i called my mom to pick up some cables for me. and no, i couldn't wait till tomorrow. i was meeting her for dinner. stereo in stereo out is a pain in the ass.

My mission is to finish my rig. My wife is the biggest obstacle.

I'm heading to Taiwan in 2 weeks. I am curious what kind of gear they have. U know most of their stuff is from Japan. Hopefully I can find something interesting

japan is the best place for gear for sure.
but I will in Taiwan, which has a pretty shitty music scene.
I think most guys living there import all there stuff from japan.

Chiming in late in this conversation...and I still haven't read the whole 17 pages.
Working on it!!  ;)

I would consider GAS being the act to buy gear you really do not need.
I mean, who NEEDS a sixth Les Paul, a tenth Strat, yet another amp or a fourth ADA MP-1??
Looks like I do.

For some reason, there is a great rush to press that Buy it now button and then feel like
you shouldn't have done it but smirk at the idea the thing will show up at your door.
It feels like cheating on your wife actually.
That forbidden unruly wrong thing to do...But so pleasurable!!

I take comfort in the idea that I'd rather go the GAS way than cheating on my wife.

And no matter what, one day, I might sell most of it. So it's not a complete loss.
Especially that most of the gear I buy is high end.
So it ages well.

Lately I've been going in a Boston phase and started buying some of these components
that used to be out of reach monetarily at the time.
Great toys!!   :green-banana-smiley-emoticon:

Hahaha, I bought one of those dsp256 a few years back. Wasn't impressed either. Think I sold it 2 weeks later.

Feeling the GAS comming on, thinking of selling a few pieces and picking up a few more. Looking at either an Axe Fx or a Kemper profiler. Alot of coin to slip past the wife though. :dunno:
