seems like it widens the Q on the mid sweep


From what i've heard on YT, the new mode tightens the Q, making the mid sweep a lot more focused and precise, instead of being a all the mids/no mids switch.
The old metalzone is not a bad pedal, but it's way too easy to make it sound bad, this one, it seems more in line with the current trend of pedals / tones.

I think that sounded really good. It's got me thinking maybe something like this would be better than my Wampler Super Plextortion for seriously high gain stuff. That pedal gives me some serious gain, but it is loose and a bit sloppy sometimes.

FFFFFUUUU.... the pickup selector in my Tele broke and now I can't use the neck pickup. I guess I gotta get someone to solder that back.

It's an all stock MIM Fender HH Blacktop Stratocaster, 2013.  The neck is really great on this one.

Nice! I'm not really a strat guy but I could see myself with this one. I'd have to convert it to single volume and tone and move the volume to the middle spot, and put a plug in the hole in the pickguard.

I guess Fender abandoned the idea that the "blacktop" should have a black pickguard. If you don't like the look of a plug, I can make a new pickguard with two controls.

Yeah it is strange that Fender named it a Blacktop when indeed there is no blacktop.

Ah, but can you make a P-bass pickguard with the neck pocket cut for a strat style neck, with humbucker routs? I still have that peabody project sitting. sitting. sitting. sitting

yesterday i braved the rainstorm to go to big jilm's shop in search of a humbucker-sized p90. as luck would have it, he had an allparts one all pretty & new in its packaging. i bought it & got it installed yesterday, and it seems to be working really well!

i was also getting tired of the boring white pickup cover in the middle of my ibanez, and jim again saved the day with a purple dimarzio blade cover. my pickup is a standard pole-pieced single coil, but i don't care the blade cover looks rad.

once i was done at precision, i decided to get coffee. simce the pawn shop is so close to the coffee shop, i figured i'd stop in & see what was around, even though i couldn't / shouldn't justify spending any more money on gear. i first found a peavey clasic 60/60 power amp for $80. i already have one of these and have no use for another, but i almost bought it on principle because they are great amps and that price is less than half of what i paid for mine.

i resisted the urge to buy a power amp i won't use, but then i saw an older ehx small clone reissue complete with its wooden box for $45. i've wanted one of these for a long time, i'm a sucker for chorus pedals, i never see the wooden boxes, and this was a great price, so i bought it.

john, you may be thinking of the 400rb - its kind of been a sleeper cheap classic bass amp for a few decades.


i should get one at some point.

shit i found one on ebay for $88 so i bought it.

welp, this took a shit tonite.

i started using it but i noticed i wasn't getting a lot of volume. i was also trying to figure out some issues with my interface at the time, so i didn't really noticed i had the gain, boost volume, & master volume all cranked on the amp until all of the sudden it lost power. then i noticed those levels, as well as the amp's high temperature and slightly melty smell.

i opened it up but didn't see any burnt up components or anything immediately alarming. the output transformer was really hot though, and was the source of the scent.

all of the resistors on the power section board seem to be at the correct levels (meter showed that none of them are dead, at least) and nothing else jumped out at me as problematic.

my best guess, without really knowing much about this type of thing, is that the output transformer is fried.

I wish I was better at animated gif photoshopping. I would show Optimus Prime being lowered into a deep fryer.
