Title: Pics Of New Gear
Post by: Johnny Mac on October 08, 2006, 09:41:31 AM
The brown box is a HBE Power Screamer with Fat Boost. I first tried a Powers Screamer at the LGS on Feline Guitars stand. Thanks for that Jonathon!

The white box with red knobs is a HBE Dos Mos which Ben TO told us all about some time back! It's a clean boost basically and it's amazing! Thanks for that Ben!

They both sound gorgeous, even in a little 12w Marshall practise amp!

The guitar is the Pawnshop Schecter.  8)

The other stuff on the new coffee table is just the laptop and stereo I brought back from LV. There is other stuff but it's not that relevant!

I like the simplicity of the Schecter, nothing fancy just a straight forward guitar.

congrats on your haul

Successful trip there Johnny._ am looking forward to reading your thoughts on the new pedals-the i-pod thingy looks pretty smart too.

I'm a Golden Virginia bloke Nick , but cos of the situation you can't take your own smokes out there. American Spirits have no added addictive chemicals, like cyanide! Most taylor mades are dipped in 500 yucky chemicals to make them more addictive!

The power screamer and the Dos Mos through a little 12w Marshall sound incredible with the IT's, the MM & the TS's!! Throught the Koch it's just mental!  :twisted:  :twisted:

Very nice stuff you got there!

What kinda shaped neck do those Schecters have, they look really good but I cant play Ibanez wizard style necks (or whatever they have on the RG series) but the S-series necks are perfect.. Gotta control my guitar gas for a while though as I've still not finished rebuilding my strat, or got a new amp yet :lol:

Not sure Tom but it feels nice to me. Not as nice as my Charvel, which isn't as fast as an Ibanez. That's why the neck of my Charvel is going in to my Custom LP which Feline are making!

Well that would defeat the object of showing how cheap you can get gear in The States Dave! This was a one finger salute at the moron who is taxing us all to death!  :lol:

Alright!
Gave up smoking 13 years ago. Lent my Dos Mos to my band mate and he lost it. Got another.
Killed my laptop when Danny Rose scored that screamer and lobbed the keeper for Spurs against the Goons in his own half!
Rented my flat out. Still got that stereo and tube screamer. Gigged that in the Red Eye in Denmark St.
The guitar has an Alnico Warpig, Mississippi Queen combo with 13ís and makes the foundations of my womanís house rumble when I plug my Koch in it. Innit.

Good catch John. I think Schecter delivers quality for reasonable prices. I would love to try the cheaper Nick Johnston model.

American Spirits are good for you, and they actually help attain great tone!
