Z Vex Box o’ Rocks

Now, J. Mascis used to call this his fave dirt and I can see why. It is NOT over the top, closer to the SHO then the Mammoth, but damn do it sound good. And why Mascis “used to”? Because he had ’em build a Double Box to stack ’em what is pretty cool but not for me, but then I ain’t J.

Z Vex Distortron

Marshall-inna-box is the cliche, but true. The triple sub thing is what sets it apart and makes it invaluable on bass. But, run a boost pedal into it with guitar and say goodbye to yer lease.  I mean, even in front of a 15w. amp, you’ll be killin’ skeeters and have the cops visit.

5/5 olives.

Z Vex Super Duper 2 in 1

This is a secret pedal of mine for bass. I use it into my Ampeg BA 108 (ver. 1) and get all kindsa inspired and sometimes can’t stop playin’.

But, it’s a secret, y’all, so don’t tell no one. (Pretty good on guitar, also, altho’ I have other preferences …)

Hofner Fuzz

OK, I got mine, so lemme say some pedal-maker guy at Reverb mentioned how flexible was the Hofner Fuzz pedal. Now, it’s made in China, it’s kinda a plainish military grey rectangle box, and it can be noisy, but damn if he wasn’t correct. I’m a distortion-pedal kinda guy, and boosts and fuzz and such gimme wood. This one (US$35 or so) is as much fun as my recently acquired Z Vex’s. I mean, it’s not anywhere built as nice nor looks as nice, but it sure sounds good – it’s fun! And if ya ain’t believe me, you might be one of my neighbors … Twisted Evil

4/5 olives, cuz it’s built mebbe cheap in China, and it’s a touch noisy …

A conversation re my C/L trolling

Yes, you are. And if you posted all of that other filthy crap (my apologies if you didn’t), PLEASE seek professional mental health assistance.

Nah dude, wasn’t me, just figured I would point out that your post wasn’t contributing anything more than those other ones were
Actually, I have had numerous over-the-top threats, curse-outs and other wackiness in email responses. I don’t know if you saw the outrageous posts earlier this and last week, but there’s one clown that’s melting down. I confess, I take some amusement from that. But more importantly, IMO, is that C/L somewhat acknowledged the issue, if the “3 post limit” post is to be believed.

Mainly, I am annoyed with seeing the same PA and guitar sellers posting everyday, weeks and months on end. As well, the loser metal band, who literally physically threatened me re their band-page link. I am not in this forum to buy or listen to their crap – I’m trying to find musical partners; I buy in the merchandise forums, and have no interest in lame Midwest metal.

Let me note, I have been thanked by 3 or 4 posters who did not realize it was the wrong forum; or so they claimed, and they never returned to try and sell anything.

I’ll further note, I was physically threatened by some clown in Texas claimed to have a record label – he actually tracked me down at work, a former soldier with gun posts elsewhere.

My point, then, is that I’m not some kid trolling, I truly believe these idiots lower the value of the forum/community – whatever you call it – and I figure, along with my amusement, I give them a outlet for their [sometimes threatening violence] frustrations.
