WTT/FS: Nomad+Cash for Lonestar?

I've got a serious hankering for a lonestar combo.... I've got a Nomad 100 1x12(EVL) w/ flight case + cash to trade... Alternatively I am willing to just sell the nomad w/ flightcase outright. $900 plus shipping, but I'd much rather meet a seller halfway anywhere in the pacific northwest(BC, WA, OR)...

byoc fuzzface clone

Just wanted to show off my freshly painted fuzzface clone. I managed to con a very good painter friend into painting it as a way of getting some of her art, as she has trouble giving up her canvases. The pedal was cleaned and sanded, and then painted with standard acrylic and blue pen. It was finish...

As far as I know, you'll get the opposite of what your buddies amp sounds like! A lack of punch and detail. Less dynamics, less goodness. Basically everything you like in an amp gets dulled down. I know from my slowing dying nomad that a different breed of microphonics will show itself(sort of an el...

if you buy a good digital unit, like the tc electronic g-major, or something from lexicon, you shouldnt have any more issues with the loop then you might have with an analog effect. you'd also save money, as these digital multi-effect rack units often offer a variety of effects for the same money as...

he's refering to processing latency, like the one you might experience while playing through softwear on a computer. the latency is in the order of a few milliseconds, and this causes phase interactions when the dry signal is mixed in parrallel with the wet signal(which is a few milliseconds out). t...

I believe that the issue isn't with overall volume, but with usable clean headroom. If you're playing with a full band, 50 watts just barely cuts it for a stand out/lead/solo clean tone. That's why you have guys complaining about 50 watters not being "loud" enough. Sure, a 20 watt deluxe reverb is l...

my advice would be to close your eyes and turn the knobs. if the ace is ANYTHING like the deuce, it's going to require some unconventional settings to sound it's best. enjoy the new amp...

Changing from 10's to 11's deffinitly changed my tone alot, probably just as much as going from 9's to 10's. I use very high-output pickups with a light attack to get my sound, so more string meant more output from my fingers(rarely use a pick). I had the guitar professionaly set up with a truss rod...
