Dreams of Wattage, GAS Hauntings

I'm much more content with my entire rig than I have been in a few years. In the past 3 years I went from active pup guitar to Ampeg SS amp metal, to giving fxs a chance and completely changing everything I use. I'm using passive pups and a tube amp now so its a dramatic change. I'm pretty proud of myself for being able to play 2 completely different styles of music now in my 2 bands without having to change out anything in the rig but the tuning on my guitar. I love my VTM60 since I learned how to get cleans out of it but I wouldn't mind one day having a 100watt plexi style something with some higher wattage speakers. I've been using the same basic fxs for a while now but I keep upgrading them slightly. Next in sight is getting a phase 99 to replace my phase 90, nicer cables, a nicer looking empty cab to throw my speakers in- minor changes like that.

What kind of modulation are you looking for? i've had timeline and bluesky but Sold both and now I am more happy with a Digitech Polara "reverb" and Obscura "delay" Somehow downsizing meant upsizing for me it just feels more at your fingertips.

At the moment pedal wise I want a couple more pedals:
AMT WH-1 japanese girl kick ass wah which stays in position that you want and 3 different mode's + small size
Alexander Pedals F.13 Flanger goddamn that flanger floats my boat hearing a demo of it from ProGuitarShopDemos on youtube gah WANT!
Fanthom arcade octave fuzz "fuzzhugger"
Chase Bliss Audio - Warped Vinyl
Bit commander

Ravish sitar "EHX" Now this one I just really wonder how it would sound through a doom setup !

Something to add some movement to my sound without being reverb or delay, which I'm set on. I thought I was settled with my phaser, but I pretty much can't use it unless I'm playing clean or it cuts a huge chunk out of my low end. Most other mod pedal types don't have the same available speed. I'm using a PM7 and the ring mod option is really nifty, but it fucks my low end to hell and back. I've got a tremulus lune that is nifty, but it's one of those things I wish had tap tempo. Oh well. Maybe I'll decide I don't care anymore with time.

The looper situation still really bugs me though, as I LOVE looping.

This is why I both want to upgrade my Laney to a 100 watt and why I think about getting a Mesa Bass Buster 200 for my upgraded bass amp. Bigger Bassman/Plexi. Love that sound. That vs. the tube pre / ss power @1000 watt bass amps I love.

Yeah, as that filter sweeps through you're going to lose bass through part of the sweep, but the peak of the sweep should sound wooly and beefy. One of the reasons I picked my 3ms Phaseur Fleur was that amp about to explode bassy sound it makes at the peak, it's fuller and meatier than most other phasers I tried. It'd match your Lune.

Wanting more bass brings me to my other thought.

Get a good Uni-Vibe clone with a deep bass throb to it like MJM 60's Vibe, Roger Mayer Voodoo (best if money is no object), Drybell Vibe Machine, or Sobbat Glow Vibe (good luck finding one for sale). The Mayer is HUGELY flexible, it's Trem will put most boutique stand alone opto Trems to shame, and the Vibe is I think the best I've heard ever. If you want the one that dead on sounds like Machine Gun @ WS tone, then this pedal will deliver.

If you have a stereo rig, then maybe the Pigtronix Rototron, or one of the digital Leslie pedals out there. I have a Gig-FX Chopper that I love the fuck out of too, great stereo Trem/Panner with treadle, but if I was getting a stereo Trem today I'd probably pick a Stereo Tremulous Lune from 4ms with optional CV controller. It sounds so delicious. Totally jelly of your trem.

Money is definitely an object; I don't want or need anything super boutique or complicated. Every opto trem I've ever heard sounds sexy as hell, but the range of speeds always kills them for me. Is that a limit of the opto circuit, or do they just not want that much available speed in their pedals?

EDIT: I'm an idiot; the lune is an optical trem..

Is there a way to add panning to the Tremulus? That could be a sound I could get into, ridiculous speed or not. I'd just have to have my amps always unstacked.

HeavyX likes modulation pedals to go so fast they start making alien noises and ripping black holes in the jam room.

I want more Ampegs. I have no idea why. I keep looking and finding and thinking of just keeping the instead of helping the duders I know who want some... though I did try 2 weeks ago when a slew of great deals were around and none of them took advantage of them.
I like to keep myself busy:

I really dont have any GAS at the moment on the amp side of things...I have my vintage marshall and the matamp...the only thing I was hankering for was a practical combo for home use, and I ended up getting a fender blues deluxe, so thats served my fender/blues-lawyer/low volume gas.

After having multiple dual and triple channel amps, the single channel amps are the ones that are keepers for me, because i prefer to use pedals and i can change them quite easily and at little cost...and also i have not come across a 2 channel amp that has the perfect clean and distortion tone...you always have to comprimise on one of the channels.

I know you think you have to go overseas...but Tym is close by to you and they have Matamp stuff in the shop...i know its priced really high, but getting from overseas may be just as expensive when you consider shipping, and also potential damage.

I would wholeheartedly recommend a Matamp btw, to be honest, since i've had the matamp, i have rarely used my Marshall. Which is a shame, but the matamp just sounds soooo good!

Yeah, big bottles are big sounding. I run 4x6550 on one side, 4xEL34 on the other. I sometimes think about switching it up to 6L6 and EL34 to bring the loudness more in balance, but those 6550's just have unreal bass response. I know I'll miss it when it's gone.

Most of my gear needs are limited by how things will sound in a band context (and general lack of moneys), which restrains me in a good way. I'm pretty dead on in achieving the tone I've been chasing since starting this band with my current guitar, fuzz, and stereo amp setup. It's all dialed pretty perfectly. And it's all been pretty cheap. That said I still have GAS for a Science Hellhawk to replace my Yba-3, though I just can't justify the pricetag. More realistically, thinking about a custom 4x12 to better showcase the tube amp side of my stereo rig. That or there's a Ampeg VT22 on my clist that would be kinda rad.
