    Pedal GAS. Not good. I sold off a bunch of my pedals (22!), thinking I would never want them again. Usually when I sell something off I don't regret it; not this time. I want my pedals back! Prepare to see more of me in this forum again. :rollno:

    Here's my current pitiful pedalboard. (left to right: Boogie VTwin, ZVex Wooly Mammoth, ZVex Machine, Lovetone Meatball, EH Microsynth) It will be restored to it's proper glory. Mark my words.

    As an aside...Have you ever tried recording directly with your Vtwin? i am interested in getting one of these for recording guitar, but at the moment i am limited by not being able to record with a microphone to get a decent sound. and oh how would love to have that Mesa Boogie guitar sound.

    we now return you to your normally scheduled thread...

    By any chance, do you have any recordings of you playing through your V-twin? I've always wanted to know what its overdrive sounded like.

    The VTwin is incredible recorded direct. Even Brendan likes it.

    Most men would love to be thought of as a measuring stick.

  13. well, im not much appreciative on the effects side, but i do have gas for a BOSS V-WAH (get to try it tomoro, yay), some kind of decent delay delay, Boss Bass Synth and a Chunk Agent 00Funk Envelope Filter...eventually ill just have a SWR MOBASS and those pedals minus the synth pedal......plus i wouldnt mind the KORG PX4B for practice, i dont have any pedals at the moment, only my zoom 506 which is dying, plus i have a KORG DDD-5 Drum Machine, which is rather cool :p
