    Thank you!
     
  4. Just did a little internet stalk and really like your work!

    Is the AO your Darkglass weapon of choice?

    What other gear are you partial to?

    I’m really enjoying my U500.

    Hello! Thanks a lot!
    I love the A/O, as well as the B7K, it just depends on what I want to do, but when I'm reaching for distortion, it's one of the two! I also love source audios hot hand device, it's so freakin cool! I ALSO have been liking earthquake devices lately to play around and have fun with. You like the U500? I'm going to be doing a review of that one soon. What do you like about it? What's your favorite feature?
     
  8. Yeah I love that amp.

    The best feature I think is the preamp and output section modelling. Really cool voicings IMO.

    The effects are pretty handy - and each one is a nice simple good sounding version of a classic effect.

    The amp is a touch heavy though compared to lots of modern offerings.

    While I am by no means a ‘heavy’ music fan I did admire your obvious skills. I was bemused by your nails as I cannot stand it when mine get too long! I just HAVE to chop them down to the quick!! :D

    May I wish you the best in your career. :)

    My Lady loves having here nails done but, being in her Sixties, she’s a tad more conservative. :)

    I met her playing a gig in Liverpool on June 06 1968. Our Golden Anniversary is April 26 2019. :D
