    Wanna pimp out that new '72 Yamaha Hollowbody, or your new Jupiter Tenor? Give us some pics, yo.

    Please don't shit on other people's gear -- one woman's trash is another man's treasure; we all tend to have special attachment to our instruments, and saying "omfg that Guild is a POS" doesn't do anyone any good. All I'm saying is be nice : )

    And to kick us off, my beloved (and pretty fucked up) 1956 Copper Danelectro UB6 Baritone. dano.jpg

    Fender American Strat with Marshall VS65R. I also have a Yamaha BB405 5-string bass and a Takamine EG334SC acoustic/electric, but I don't happen to have pictures of either of those.

    I took this photo by accident ages ago (alliteratively) but it had all of my gear in it so I kept it. Left to right: Laney Hardcore amp, Epiphone Les Paul '56 Goldtop, Boss BF3 Flanger, Boss MD-2 Mega Distortion, Electro-Harmonix Small Stone Phaser, Boss DD-5 Digital Delay, DOD Stereo Turbo Chorus, DOD Envelope Filter, JHS Wah Pedal, Korg AX1G Multi. I've also got a 4 string Peavey bass, an unplayably painful Fender acoustic and a Hondo LP copy.

    I like my pedals.

    I have that same distortion pedal.

    Once I get a new harddrive for my comp, I'll load pics and post them. I'm using my mom's laptop, so yeah.

    cool, did you find that it sounds enormous and amazing on your amp but really tinny on everyone else's amp? I did. Although that's because the other guitarists I know won't let me mess with their levels. Bastards.

    My band is me on guitar and the mysterious Mr C. D. Player on drums, bass, second guitar and vocals. So yeah, I reckon one person counts as a band. Anyway, I just love showing off my setup B-)

    [ ok, posting in the right thread :) ]


    i am searching a good overdrive/distortion pedal for my bass guitar
    i need something "crunchy"... more in the death metal direction...
    good distortion is welcome but not needed

    who can give me some recommendations ?

    i read much about "boss" pedals

    e.g: http://www.bossus.com/index.asp?pg=1&tmp=5

    can i use that pedal with my bass guitar ? or is it guitar-only ?

    In reply to boerdi, #20:

    Distortion pedals will work for any electric string instrument. If you want a better sound they make pedals specificly for bass. The best thing to do is try some stuff out and see what you like best.

    i just don't want to fry my amp or any other equipment involved ;)

    haha! I'm a good lefty. I play right handed. I think I've adapted well to right-handed life, except that up until a couple of years ago I couldn't use a can opener. So lame.
