Effects Pedals & Pedalboards / Looper Pedals
« on: May 07, 2017, 11:47:42 AM »
Do you use Looper pedals, and if so what's your preferred make and model.  I have a looper built into my Zoom G5, but don't use it very often, or at least not as much as I could.  I'd probably use it more often if I could get my head around the G5 controls. 

Anyway, what do you use, and is it really easy to operate?

Noticed this one at,  The NUX Loop Core Guitar Effects Pedal  Looks like a pretty neat and feature packed pedal for the money, at only £82.99

"The NUX Loop Core Guitar Effects Pedal offers up to 6 hours of mono and stereo recording time, allowing you to fully experiment with layering up your sounds. As well as the main looper function, the Loop Core also offers 99 user memories, built-in drum patterns with tap tempo, tru bypass and many more. It is the perfect tool for composers or simply for and guitarist wanting to jam."

Effects Pedals & Pedalboards / Line-6 Helix and Helix LT
« on: April 14, 2017, 12:54:43 PM »
Anyone took the plunge and got a Line-6 helix.  Just wondered what your first impressions are on this effects processor. 

I see now they have a slightly cheaper version called the Helix LT , which I'll need to read up on to see what the differences are.  Looks like a few of the connectivity has been removed, but what else I'm not sure yet.

If you have either of these units please post your thoughts.

General Discussion / Vape Tanks, or E-Cigarettes
« on: February 19, 2017, 08:17:26 PM »
OK, I'm a long term smoker, and want to try and kick the habit.  Been thinking about trying a Vape Tank instead of real tobacco, but I'm new to all this vape stuff.  Anyone here made the move?

Three days ago I purchased a cheap starter kit, and so far I haven't had a real cigarette for two and a half days, that's a record for me to be honest.  Normally I'd be going crazy for a fag.   I don't know if it's the cheapy kit I got, or perhaps the juice I'm using, but I feel it could be a little stronger. 

Quite like the look of this one on amazon, IMECIG® G3 Upgrade (Add Magnetic Dust Cap) Electronic Cigarette Starter Kit But any recommendations are welcome, I usually smoke rolling tobacco, so something with similar strength would be great.

General Discussion / Peach Guitars Announce New Superstore
« on: December 01, 2016, 06:56:34 PM »
Colchester guitar Retailer Peach Guitar announced they are about to open a new superstore.  They will be closing their existing shops in Braintree and Colchester and moving everything into one massive new store in Colchester.  To me this is exciting as it's my local Guitar shop, so can't wait to take a look around.

Amplifiers / So updating firmware killed your amp
« on: November 23, 2016, 06:30:12 PM »
Just curious after reading several posts regarding the Blackstar ID Core series amps dying after updating the firmware. I was wondering what support you got from Blackstar when or if this happened to you.

Did you get any help, or just accept the fact and put it down to experience. If you got any help. was your amp out of the warranty period?  To be honest it worries me each time they release a new version of insider and firmware, and IMO, it shouldn't.

Your thoughts please.

Some of the many posts I found regarding this problem.

General Discussion / Rocksmith
« on: November 13, 2016, 12:33:21 PM »
My son had the original version of Rocksmith sitting upstairs doing nothing, so I decided to give it a go.  Now I find this ridiculously difficult to master.  Anyone know if the latest version, Rocksmith 2014 Edition Remastered is easier to get along with, and has it improved much?

Also, anyone actually learned to play the guitar using these games?

Guitar Accessories / New Strings vs Old, how much does it affect tone?
« on: November 12, 2016, 12:19:58 PM »
Do new guitar strings really make a big difference to the tone of your guitar? I mean I play at home for a hobby only, and rarely change strings until I break one.  So don't really notice any slow degradation of the tone.

Should I be changing them more often regardless of breakages?
