I had one on an SG once but I don't remember it being bad. It was a fair while ago though.

Maybe not then.

The SG I had did have roller saddles so maybe that helped? Never much into divebombs either.

My Kalamazoo KG-2 had a vibrola of that design on it (without the big rear plate). I call it "The Magical Go-Out-of-Tune Lever." It's in a drawer.

Not every vibrola is the same, though. I don't know the details of the differences, but I know that when I worked at a music shop, we had a Gibson Jeff Tweedy "Les Paul" SG at the same time as a limited Epiphone SG that both had the vibrola. The Gibson vibrola, which was more vintage-correct, was a nightmare to use, while the Epiphone was very hard to throw out of tune that way.

A Mission Engineering VM-Pro volume pedal and an old Dearmond contact mic (model 700) from the 60s/70s with the original clip.

As someone who never really used many pedals, I am excited to have one of these on the way.

Waiting on a custom 2 in 1 pedal from Chicago Stompworks. Bluesbreaker and Red Llama that can be run independently or in series, in the order above.

Just picked up one of these used with a pair of Yamaha S115V speakers..

Holy - for the money, great sounding practice space setup. Super light, crazy output, and the effects sound great. Only bummer is lack of individual channel mutes. Otherwise, love it.

The S115V sound great for the money too. Can easily use these for small venue gigs and we're a loud band

Nice. I need a better P.A. and this seems pretty great! Is it 500 or 1000 watts?

I have one of these. It is AWESOME.

Advice: get him to put a tone knob on the Red Llama side. IT NEEEDS IT. So badly.

http://www.muzique.com/lab/swtc.htm

The first one on that page would be perfect for the Llama. It has so MUCH output.

Tommy, I was hoping to use the tone knob on the Bluesbreaker to cut highs going into the Red Llama. I didn’t know he was open to mods like that. Dang.

I'm not 100% sure he is, but he probably is. I definitely plan on modding mine at some point. It might be fine as-is in your setup...

Hello there and first post here. I should say almost first post cause I had a previous account I could not remember the password. Anyways, I still don't know if I need to create a topic to introduce myself, if it is needed, I'll give it a shot.

Featuring below is my newest pedal, a stomp under foot clone of J Mascis's Ram's Head, an harmonic percolator from fredric effects and a power screamer from HBE I tend to use a lot recently and finally two pedals I borrowed from a good friend of mine. The Jerry Cantrell wah is quite good, the knob is really handy.

Behringer ADA8200.

What, don't judge. I just need a few more ins for an upcoming live session. It'll be FINE.

OK, for real, I'm judging myself. Fine. I got it used at least. Still feels like a turd move.

a friend thats been building pedal clones came for a visit from san francisco. he gifted me a 4 in one pedal that he built. 4 foot switches, 4 knobs. it's compressor, overdrive, fuzz, boost. the compressor is supposedly a dan armstrong orange squeezer, the fuzz is a color sound, and he couldn't remember what the drive and boost are. fucking nuts pedal and a ton of fun.

What? No. My brother uses one for all his synths. It's cheap, it works, and sounds fine!

Good to know. Reviews were favorable and it's going to be light use. Also like the fact that if it's not really doing the job for me stock, I can have Black Lion upgrade it for a couple hundo.
