General Discussion / How to enable GodMode in Windows 10
« on: April 14, 2018, 04:37:10 PM »
Fed up with searching around all the various settings pages to find a specific setting in Windows 10.  Well thankfully there's a way to see all your settings in one place.   GodMode.

It's bee around, I believe since Windows 7, and is still there on Windows 10.  So how do I activate it.

Right click your desktop, and click new folder from the menu.

Rename that new folder by copying and pasting the line below, exactly as is, complete with GodMode, the period and the brackets.


The folder icon will change to a control panel icon. Double-click on that new icon to see all your settings and controls in one place, and all organised under their various headings.

Electric Guitar / Fake Wilkinson pickups.
« on: March 12, 2018, 08:55:05 PM »
Been seeing a lot of posts around the web regarding fake Wilkinson pickups being fitted to some guitars, namely Harley Benton guitars.  Seems the factory was being palmed off with these fake pickups by the suppliers.

Now noticed that Harley Benton guitars now come with Roswell pickups in place of the Wilkinson one's although some or most of the other hardware is still Wilkinson.

That said, Harley Benton still seem to be putting out some cracking guitars, at great prices.

Some info, and a sneak peak at the new range of HB guitars.

Effects Pedals & Pedalboards / DIY effects pedals, of sorts?
« on: March 10, 2018, 03:17:27 PM »
Might be a strange question, but has anyone made their own effects pedal out of a different piece of electronic equipment? 

In the late 70's I once used an old battery cassette player and made it into a distortion pedal, well I think you could call it that, it distorted like hell.  Also boosted and sustained very well too if I remember.  Simply removing the tape head and fitting a guitar jack in place of it.   I annoyed the crap out of my neighbors with that. lol..

What's the strangest contraption you've come up with pedal wise?

Anyone use a guitar effects pedal for something it wasn't designed for?  Example a fuzz, or a octave pedal for vocals etc.  Let's hear your ideas.

What's your favourite effects pedal? and why. 

What make and model is your most used and treasured effects pedal, and would you miss it if it was no longer available?  What would you replace it with if you had to?
