The Green Russian muffs are said to have a great sound, more mid heavy from what people say - some prefer them to vintage US muffs. I was gonna get one the other day, but it was gone when I got to the store.

Just got this in the mail today, $38 ebay score. Opened it up and it dates from late '80:

Sold the Vintage Small Stone in anticipation for the brand new Polyphase which is more Phase than I'll ever need - sounds awesome.

Apparently the guy from Placebo bought my old Small Stone when they were in town recently. I wanna see recent tour pics to see if he's using it on his board.

Had the Pulsar for a while, and the LPB1 is probably what your talking about.

Rich? I make about $17,000 a year. That is by no means rich in the US. I just don't spend my money on alcohol and weed.

It is pretty loud in octave mode, but putting it before another distortion helps if you are playing with a full band...For the price it is an execellent pedal for octave distortion. I recommend it - but like with nearly all octave (up) pedals, the octave sound comes out primarily when you are playing above the 12th fret, and sounds best with the neck pickup on or your tone turned down.

Just a regualar distortion, kinda muddy. you can hear it on SpectralJulian's guitar track on the recent collab.

Well, it drops the volume slightly from your clean, but it sounds great if you run the octave mode into the Big Muff. It is also pretty good for recording. It is so cheap, I'd say yeah.

The dano trem is also pretty cool too. I had one and traded it for the french toast, still slight volume drop- but that is just because of the way tremolo works. For that very reason I want one of these:
 

it is a bit expensive, but it has a built in boost to get rid of the volume drop, it's sine wave is voiced to sound like a Fender vibrolux, and the square is voiced to sound like a Vox repeater (plug in effect that Spaceman 3 used to use.)

I'm probably not gonna have one for a long time. My current aspirations are a polyphase and a DD-20, as well as korg dt-10. I think then I'll be off pedals for awhile because I want to work on getting a car and getting a jazzmaster and maybe an epi casino (my friend has one that he never plays, I might make him an offer on it, I figure he'll sell it to me cheap because he got it cheap.)

BTW, there are a bunch of cool bends for your DS-1. We did bend A to my friends that seems to make the distortion a bit better, and also makes it oscillate at the highest gain settings. With a dano fuzz or distortion like his grilled cheese (which we destroyed looking for bends) or my french toast on before it (which generates does something cool to the signal) and then a chorus after it (might work with tremolo infront of it) we got cool police siren noises.

Actually, those were built into the guitars. I have a Vox guitar with fuzz and repeater on-board, and Sonic Boom's has them as well (different model, same FX). They did sell them as a separate unit for a while though. I love square trems a lot.

Yeah, they were also built into guitars. We had a discussion about your guitar a long while ago. One of those is on my long list of stuff to get. But I'm only 21. I've got a long life of gear collecting ahead of me.

Cool. I was just reading somewhere about another trem pedal with a slight boost when engaged, makes sense. The Pulsar has a slight drop dammit.

My uncle has an original 60's Casino, and tons of other cool shit.

Those guitars have become ridiculously expensive in relation to their actual quality. I always wanted a teardrop-shaped one, but I think I will probably never have one now. They are really really cool and sound great and all that, but they were budget instruments in their day and I have a hard time paying close to 3000 bucks for an instrument like that.
This is one department where being old has worked to my advantage, because I bought mine when there was far less interest in the brand and style than there is now. It was 379 bucks!
I barely use it anymore, but I don't think I will ever part with it. Much too attached.

i see you have a Hondo II les paul... i have one like that, but MAN it's a POS. did you put new pups in it?
rock on, great stuff guys!

Dear CHOUT,

I will be having your blue box now. Mine is broken and you have no need for yours since you got the Fender Blender.

Yours truly,
Danny.

Anyway, in recent news, I have stopped using my effects pedals. I haven't even missed them. I dug out my phase shifter (boss) the other day and had some spacey shit going on, but I can't find practical use for effects besides trying my hand at some SYR shit. Bleh? All I really need is a wah/vol now and I'm set. Maybe some fuzz. And one of those leslie emulators. Hmm.

Actually, I haven't had anything done to the Hondo II, I was just lucky in the one I got being really good. I've owned 3 different Hondos, currently just 2. One is a neck-through and the black one is a set-neck. I'm pretty convinced that if a Hondo doesn't have a bolt-on, it must have had more work put into it. The pickups in both of them seem fine, the ones in the neck-through are higher output and have more of a modern feel to them, but I like the ones on the Hondo II's, seems to have that sort of vintage aged feel to it. I need to try out some guitars with p-90s though, because I hate the way brand new non aged humbuckers sound, and find most strat style pickups to be too thin. But I love the way Casinos and jazzmasters sound.
