I know nothing about the WB but I love the AG and everyone who hears it/uses it agrees.


Good to know - I've not been able to find a ton of firsthand opinions of it. Part of me wants to get a clone made with a gain knob for a little bit more versatility, and in hopes of running it with some grit and hitting it with the Pharaoh for +420 weedriff points. How's the pedal do with being stacked in stock form?


I'm having a Meathead clone built with a "gain knob" that's nothing but a big footswitchable passive volume knob going into the fuzz, so I can back off on it without futzing with my guitar volume. My original thought was to do that for an AG. I'll let you know how it goes. I also sing, so I don't like to have to do extra stuff with my hands while I play. I imagine, I'd back off the gain on an AG and run it into a Pharaoh than the other way around. The crunchy Muffs like to go last.

WOW. Good find. Thanks for the heads up! Ordered.

Also:

In the Company of Serpents's newest is fucking killer. Lots of YOB and Eagle Twin-y characteristics that I am just loving.

Definitely let me know how that works out if you to that route dude. Yeah I tend to like boosting muffs as well, but it would be rad if the AG acted more like an amp being hit with the muff though.

Mind Shari g where you got those from? I just picked up a 140 that is otherwise pretty clean but has a couple of janky knobs (and is missing the cable coily things on the back)...

I got them from Allied Electronics but it turns out I misread the dimensions somehow and the two replacement knobs I got look perfect but are 25% bigger than the originals.

These look right but are way too big: https://ca-en.alliedelec.com/electronic ... /70206993/

I'll probably order these next to see if they match up better but who knows: https://ca-en.alliedelec.com/electronic ... /70206982/

The actual knobs are 40 years old so it would be easiest to just buy a whole set and replace them all.

Just scored a MIJ Boss BF2 Flanger for cheap. Gonna get my Cure on. Anyone use one of these things? I haven't played with a flanger in about 20 years and all I did then we're jet plane noises.

I've got one.
I usually use it as a chorus or for that warped vibrato/flanger sound TVL used when playing the intro to Stuck On You while touring with Failure.

I don't know if he used it on the album, but I've always loved that guitar line.

Yeah, the album version is a keyboard run through Ken's rig.
Greg just plays the keyboard for the intro when the play live, now.

Also, IIRC, Ken used it all over Magnified (I seem to remember a quote where he said Undone wouldn't exist without the BF-2).

I had one for a while, playing with the resonance and manual controls yields chorus-y/vibrato sounds, which I've found more useful than jet sounds. Did get over the top feedback sounds out of mine with resonance maxed, too. Recently picked up a Tonelok chorus/flanger for cheap, and I really dig the vibrato sounds and range of speed.

I blew up a cab. I think all the speakers are fucked. I'm so sick of gear expenses right now. But I figure, if I've got to spend some money on speakers anyway, I may as well spend a little more and follow through with a long time dream to build my perfect cabs. We recently moved our wood shop at work and have a pretty sweet setup. I'm free to use it for personal projects, so the timing is perfect. I'm not gonna clog the forum with my project updates, but I'll be posting pics on instagram, for those who follow me. If you want to follow and see pictures of the project and pictures of my dogs, it's parker_stomach.
