Re: Digitech DigiTruck Middle America Tour

Wow, so I met up with Rikk.
VERY nice guy. I pull into the GC lot and there is a full sized trailer occupying one end of it, and it looks like a small concert venue with some very nice PA equipment cranking Rikk's and another band's music (their name escapes me, but they sounded great)
Anyway, I see Rikk in the back doing something so I yell at him. "RIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIKK!"
He turns around with a big smile, we introduce ourselves and then he invites me into the Digitruck. This place is layed out like a musician's wet dream. Racks of goodies and then i behold the scarab Ibanez he tours with, pics don't do it justice. VERY nice axe!
Anyway we start talking and BS'ing and next thing I know he's up on stage. He opens up with a song that, sadly, isn't on any CD yet. But great nonetheless. He goes into his Digitech clinician mode and proceeded to impress me considering he was using mainly his Digitech 1101 and the thing sounded great through tha PA, and that was all he ran, the digi and the PA from his guitar (plus backing tracks of course) bot the tone was damn nice, great clarity and it didn't sound like a direct signal. definitely made me wanna spend some time with one to see what it could do, if nothing more than ease of setup. Anyway, he snagged me a couple T-shirts and a REALLY nice giveaway item that I won't spoil for anyone else, but I'm already scheming on how to integrate it into my rack.

Pics on the way, I snapped a couple with my crackberry.



Anyway, go see the DIGITRUCK, go meet Rikk, you could'nt ask to meet a nicer guy!

Re: Digitech DigiTruck Middle America Tour

Hey Rikk, a couple of my friends have told me about the Amp Show... I might be able to come out that weekend; Otherwise, Sam Ash in the City of Industry is not far away but I might have to ditch work if I can't make it for the Amp Show hah!
