    A couple of people have told me i should put a sonic stomp into my rig. Why? What is it, does anyone use on? I want something that will maybe round off my lead tone alittle and make it more bubbly and less gainy but still have a lot of harmonics. Will this do that?

    Well, pending demo I should be picking up a 99-00 5150 combo tomorrow. The amp is unmodified, ungigged and barely turned up past 1-2, from the pics it's very clean looking, and has the cover with it. As said, pending demo of the amp I should be picking it up for $500. To go with the amp, the...

    Hey Now! I was hoping I could get some insight on my current rig. Basically I run my guitars into a Boss GT-6. Then it feeds stereo into a BBE 462i going to a Peavey Classic 60/60 tube (6L6) power amp into a Behringer BG412S cabinet. I plan on buying a Mesa 50/50 (not sure if new style...

    Ok, I've never really cared for processors of any kind, I prefer straight guitar into wah into maybe delay or compressor etc straight into a good amp. So I have no idea what a sonic maximizer is or does. Does it really make THAT big of a difference when not using rack stuff or processed...
