i keep seeing films/tv shows where a badass whips out a huge military/tactical duffel bag full of guns and ammo (usually around the third act, going after THe Big Baddie) and thinking "that bag would be great for leads and pedals" but i can't find one anywhere near as big as these ones on tv

If you’re in the US, try surplus stores. I have a bunch of military rucksacks and shit my dad gave me and they’re the best for pedals, mics, stands, and other excess shit.

Looks like prices are coming down on Digitech Freqout and Cab DryVR ($129). Curious about both of them!

Also seeing lower prices on the BBE Sonic Stomp (I bought a mini for $65 and the full size ones are less than that).

No idea if these are any good (Sonic Maximizer is just a "loudness button" - I remember people snarking about that - we'll see!)

you can also get duffels and whatnot from outdoor equipment outlets and/or adventure travel retailers. they can be pricy if you get a Patagonia Black Hole bag (though it'll last forever) but budget-minded stores like Campmor and LL Bean offer good value and you can find some real bargains at Sierra Trading Post.

Earthbound Supercollider being discontinued per Instagram. 20 more being made for a final batch. Suddenly, all the new ones that have been on Reverb for some time are gone.

Hey hey, I'm asking one of those "how to get this sound" questions.

The wah pedal in the solo at 7:10 in this song sounds super good. Is there any kind of wah that would sound most like this?

I've had a crybaby and a colorsound previously which were ok. So if the answer is "get another crybaby and maybe mod it" I can live with that answer. In fact I would rather it's a cheap answer. :lol:

Studio pictures on facebook only show one "sort of" clear wah shot. I thought it looked like a Cry Baby but there are several versions.

I can never make wah sound good. That wah seemed subtle and I wonder how much of it was technique over particular wah in question.

Yeah, unfortunately, I think, in this case, it's less about the specific model of wah and more about the totality of other gear involved. :idk:

Vox always seemed more interesting than the basic Dunlop offerings. But now Dunlop has some variety in their lineup too. I have a friend that loves a good wah, his favorite is the Ibanez WH10, but he really like a Wilson wah too. Just looked and they have a dozen versions.

TLDR :idk:

i want one of the Dunlop Jerry Cantrell wahs, which seem to be less painfully shrieky than your typical wah.

535Q.. selectable frequency range, adjustable boost .
It's a good wah. It does like 5 wahs in one.

Edit: but basically what Chank said.
