I'm interested in what gear such as pedals, effects boards and amps you use.
I use a boss ME-30 multiple effects board and a yamaha amp
Hi Dave! I use the ME33's bigger brother - the GT6. I think BOSS effects are great - not superbly jump-out-of-your-pants oustanding, but very reliable, affordable and of excellent quality.
I've also got a few miscellaneous pedals like a Jim Dunlop wah, a Boss CS-1 Compressor/Sustainer and an Ibanez Digital Delay, bu I mostly use the GT6 when I play on stage.
I've got a couple of amps - a Laney TF200 and a Marshall VS65R. I think I prefer the Marshall for the same reasons I like BOSS - reliability, and unlike Forrest Gump's box o' chocolates, 'you know what you're gonna git'.
What's your Yamaha amp like? Is that the one with those cool digital effects & modelling? I'm really hanging out to upgrade my amp, and I'm considering going for a Fender tube combo, or if I can afford it, a MESA Lone Star combo...
haha, reminds me of something a pastor once asked me, she asked how she could change the sound of her guitar, I told her that she could use a pedal, and then she asked "a piano pedal?"... lol
