Ok a fun thought (for those of you still checking the thread - How about listing gear for sale/trade? I for one would really like to know what you guys have to offer /if any) + i've got a few somewhat interesting things to trade myself. Anyone interested?
Re: OT: Guitarists - Show me your gear, and i'll show you mine

I like the idea. How about a separate marketplace forum for gear?

cool idea, i just haven't got anything to trade.

my stuff is either too nice or too crappy. grinning smiley

Nothing's too crappy! It all just depends on how you use it (in my opinion) smiling smiley

Normally i use my guitar rig for guitar playing, but within the frameworks of the project Mouches Volates (which consists of me and a good buddy of mine), we used the rig for vocal based knob twisting, creating rather neat noise/fx loops)

(Listen to an example here - [rapidshare.com] - Mouches Volantes - Nebula Neurosis

My point is; When recording the voice fx for this track (which was made for a noise festival performance last summer), we actually used alot of behringer effect boxes (and the BOSS ME-50). And i think that it came out rather cool. Granted, i've now listed the behringer stuff for sale/trade, but that's simply because i can generate the same type of effects with my new and updated guitar rig + i no longer need them for guitar playing. But that doesen't mean that they can't produce decent stuff. Same goes with the ZOOM BFX 707 - A rather dull fx box for use with bass, but one hell of a device to merge with, say, a theremin (like i do in Metrognom - 70's prog-rock band). In other words; I for one am interested in everything out there, as long as it's usable. Cus you never know when you might find use for it.

To make it simple: Don't be shy, present your shit like it doesen't stink smiling smiley

I have here a Boss MT-2 that I never use cos it really suck imo. It isn't good for noise neither...I've been trying to sell it since three years, but no one seems to want it lol
Re: OT: Guitarists - Show me your gear, and i'll show you mine

Ok i haven't tried that one, but then again, i'm not that into metal, so i don't think that pedal would suit my needs. Plus i've got more than enough overdrive/distortion pedals as it is. Ever tried putting it on ebay?

I´m considering selling one of my speaker cabs. Either the ´68 fender or the sound city 4x12. I´m playing mostly bass nowadays, so I need the finances to buy an ampeg 8x10. I can gladly consider a trade.

hehe ok i get your point smiling smiley

I wouldn't use one of those even if i was offered money to do so smiling smiley

By the way....i've opened a thread at the Marketplace forum, where i've compiled the items listed as sale/trade objects up to now. Thought we'd see what happens in here, and just add things as we go along. That being said, you're more then welcome to post your own items over there. Check it out ->>

OK here goes:

I got an Aria ES-335 model. Not a real Gibson but these are way too bloody expensive for me anyway and it sounds just as good as a gibson imo. Very nice clean tone and perfect for bluesy/jazzy kind of music, not really good for heavy distortion sounds tho, that's why i'm saving for a fender telecaster.

Pedals that I use most often:
- Boss RV-3 delay/reverb: Sounds fantastic, very good for the spacey/psychedelic echo sound, especially when soloing.

- Nobels ODR-1 overdrive: Beautiful clear and crisp overdrive, with lots of middle tone, which I miss in a lot of modern 'scooped' distortion pedals

- DOD FX-52 classic fuzz: pretty cheap fuzz pedal, doesn't sound just as good as the classic fuzz pedals (big muff, fuzz face and that sort of stuff) but still pretty decent heavy rock sound for the crunching power-chords.

- Dunlop Crybaby wah-wah: my personal favourite, needs no further introduction.

And besides that, the things that I don't use too often:
- Ibanez DS-7 distortion: pretty loud distortion sound, but a bit too thin for my taste, not enough bass and middle, too much treble.

- DOD FX-51 Juice Box overdrive: pretty decent overdrive but sounds a bit too dry.

- Boss Metal Zone: very nice pedal indeed, great equalizer, very versatile and suitable for many different styles of music, but still a bit too flat and digital-sounding for my taste. Guess it's a mismatch with my Aria guitar.


On multi effect pedals:
I don't want to offend anyone here, but when I go play with a guitarist and he has one of these huge multi effect monster processors, I'm having allergic reactions. Sure these things are nice toys for sound experiments at home, but I just don't find them suitable when playing in a band. Too many buttons, too much tweaking, and the more types of distortion they have packed inside, the crappier they usually sound. In my opinion these multi effect horrors are too often used to mask the guitarist's inability to make his guitar sound good without a bit layer of sound effects.
I have performed quite a lot with one of these multi effect things, and when I listen back to that now the sound almost makes me sick to my stomach tongue sticking out smiley
Of course that's only my opinion, and if you play your instrument well I guess you can make it sound good through multi effect thingies too, I just think single stompboxes sound far superior.

@ martin; I totally agree with your statement about multi effect boards. I've tried many different types, and come to the same conclusion as you. Too much work using them live, and the sound usually sucks too, especially when using overdrive/distortion. The only reason i bought my BOSS ME-50 was because of a buddy of mine, and his rather dumbass act of selling it to me, barely used, for 700NOK (about 120 dollars nowdays - it costs about 3 times more, but he was in desperate need of cash, and i for one couldn't turn down such a deal). I've begun investing in "standalone" pedals nowdays (i've got 9 different BOSS/DANELECTRO/LINE6 pedals, and there's more to come - See first post if interested). My plan is to try and build a guitar rig which enables me to play both raw and unpolished rock/solo guitar ala Snah and such guitarists, aswell as to "float into space", using reverb, delay, phaser, whammy etc.

For now i'm keeping the board because of its powers as a "space board". But as soon as my rig is good enough to allow it, i'll sell it in favour of something else. And i might just get a neat profite selling it too smiling smiley

Yeah, but it's about the ugliest guitars you'll ever see. Atleast the ones i found on ebay smiling smiley

Hey people but is there anyone around there who knows something about Snah's pedal gear? from the live pics I've seen he doesn't use any rack system...any ideas?
Re: OT: Guitarists - Show me your gear, and i'll show you mine
January 10, 2008 03:55PM
see sone prev. posts on this topic. To summarize; Amongst other stuff, he has/has used a big muff, a space echo, a moog taurus plus i think he's got some whammy like pedal, a wah wah (perhaps a crybaby). Other then that i really don't know, but i really would like to... smiling smiley

yep I was reffering to the other stuff not mentioned. His set-up must've changed a lot from the one shown on the Roadwork I lol
