And the answer is… whatever you f-in’ want to use! <woof> I’ve been on a roll lately with my snarky commentaries probably because after a very long hiatus, I started lurking and participating in guitar forums. 99.9% of the time, it’s quite enjoyable, but there’s always that...

Just when I think the fervor over this debate has all but fizzled out, it comes rearing its ugly head every now and then. I was in a forum where one person said, “Solid state amps are more like 2D, while tube amps are 3d.” Looking back on it now, I think that maybe he […]

For the last couple of years, I’ve been religiously using my EHX Soul Food overdrive as my go-to dirt pedal. Sometimes, I’d stack it with another overdrive such as a TubeScreamer, or Tone Freak Abunai 2, or my Timmy. And no matter what amp I put behind that pedal or pedal co...

I’ve mentioned this in the past but one of the passions in my life is wine. To me, there is nothing like the taste of a gorgeous wine; a wine that fits perfectly with the venue, the food, the atmosphere. As I was contemplating this, as I am wont to do, I began thinking of […]

The other day, I had a plumber come to the house to replace several worn-out fixtures and replace some corroded pipes that were close to busting. Matt, the plumber, and his helper Cody replaced two bath and shower assemblies, and kitchen and bathroom faucets. Cody even had...

Like many other guitarists out there, I’ve spent countless hours and tens of thousands of dollars in my quest for “Tone,” that magical, elusive unicorn that guitarists seem to get so close to but can never touch, as it bounds away at the slightest disturbance, drawing the...
Summary: The T-Rex Quint Machine gives you four voices to work with simultaneously: Your dry signal, octave up, octave down, and a fifth (think “Yes'” “Owner of a Lonely Heart”). You can dial in the amount of the fifth, octave up and octave down to get just the balance you...

I went to see Phil Collins in concert last night. I had never seen him live, even when he was with Genesis, though I had all the Genesis albums and several Phil Collins albums. I just loved the music he wrote with Genesis and as a solo artist. Yeah, yeah, I know he’s not a...

Being a digital amp, like other digital devices, you can tweak the Katana to get the sounds tailored to your specifications. It’s super-easy to do with the simple and straight-forward user interface as shown below (this is a screenshot from my setup): Making adjustments here...
