BEEN A F***ING STOOPID WHILE!!
« on: Time Format »

Hi guys!!

Because of facebook where some dude posted a picture of his recently dusted off MP-2 and raving about it, it reminded me that I was part of this awesome community and realized I haven't logged in for ages!!
So after answering the guy about some of his questions (And redirecting him to this very forum), I figured I would chime in and let the community know about my whereabouts.
(As if anyone really cared!!)  :facepalm:

Since Dante looks like he's pushing hard on having everybody think they are rock stars, here is my current rock star life!!

I'm writing you from Casablanca, Morocco. For the some of you that know me a bit from the past decade+, I have been coming to gig here quite a few times already. I got a proposal in late summer last year to come over for a 2 months trek (It's a 6 nights a week, mind you) starting October 1st.

I'm still here!!  :crazy:   :canadian-flag-banana-smiley-e

Turns out they like me a lot. So this will end in mid May, as Ramadan will kick in and all the businesses will shut down for a whole month. I guess I'll get back to Canada to get my car out of winter storage!! Good thing that I organized this trip including my wife and daughter to come along...Helped me to keep sane. And I don't want to spend too long without being with them. I already had too much periods where we had to be apart for several months. No more.
But to bring my beloved ones down here is quite natural since my wife and I actually met here in Casablanca...And produced our daughter here too!!  ::)

A LOT of things happened during my stay here. As always.

Gear wise, I soooo wanted to bring my MP-1 Classic to do the gig but finally decided not to.
Because mainly I have 120V stuff and here is run on 240V.
...But more importantly, the voltage swing at the club I'm playing is lethal.
I've fried a few things over the years playing here. Notably my Microtube 200.
This time I fried my Digitech XP100 in the second week.  :facepalm:
So I decided to use my flyrig of late. A TCE Nova System.
Works wonderfully, but I miss some tube action.
I also brought a TCE Nova drive, which is a GREAT OD/Dist pedal... Programmeable and all.
Then I started asking from friends who were travelling to bring me some shit down here.
So I got my trusty DOD FX17 wah back  here to replace the Digitech whammy.
Some dude here in Casablanca was selling a mojohandfx Rook Royale pedal for cheap.
Got that!! Nice unit.
For Xmas, I treated myself to a nice Suhr modern in denim late finish.
I've been tracking Suhr moderns for years and finally found one at a price I couldn't pass up.
Especially it had 94% of the features I wanted!!
Great axe!
I also bought an amp online, but I will only get to try it out when I get back to Canada.
I will probably dedicate a post for that.

So yeah, I'll stop the blabbing for now and leave you with a few pictures.

And I hope I can manage to be more regular here, I always digged this forum the most.
But my schedule has been hectic for so long....Jeeeezzz!!  :crazy:

Now this would be the Suhr I mentioned.
Swamp ash body, highly figured maple top, denim slate finish.
Stock pick-ups, Gotoh 510 bridge, locking tuners, Pau Ferro fingerboard.

And next to it is my home rig.
Tech 21 Flyrig that is my spare tire if ever my Nova fries up.
I highly recommend the Flyrig to anyone here.
Such a prefect piece of gear!! Small, lightweight but powerful.
Love it!!
I plug it into a TDK bluetooth speaker and I can enjoy noodling around whenever
i want to hear my guitar plugged in.

Here is the live rig.
Next time, f*ck it, I'll bring the MP-1 Classic as the tone generator.
The Nova will still be used for effects and as a controller.

Hey Tomy!!
I do still use my Reezafratzitz.
I've been buying/trying a lot of OD/dist over the last few years only to realize that there is so much great stuff out there.
...and I should have tried to use them in my rig a loooong time ago.
I was always under the idea that the "proper" way had to be plugging my guitar straight in a tube preamp out to a tube amp
and out to speakers.
While it isn't bad, you can do so much more tonewise when you add ODs and distortion pedals uphill, doing tone and gain stacking.
It opens a whole new tonal realm...For very few bucks.
I since bought many pedals and notably a Suhr Riot, a Lovepedal Plexi 800 (Became my AC/DC tone generator) and a Tech 21 Flyrig which is awesome!!
