Hey guys, hope all is well, a few mornings back I wrote a rather silly review describing my new stringed beauty.

Have a read and tell me what you think ;)


The ML-1 , named so by the great Sires of Chapman Guitars. Has recently fallen into my grasp. with the exchange of a mere £369 Gold Pieces, I am now Stewarding this 6 string beast in this lifetime.

At first glance to this Fair Maiden, I become speechless and look in awe to its sleek design, the craftsmanship put in to concealing this Instruments deadliness, in a Beautiful array of Drool Worthy Woods and Metals.

The Solid Mahogany Boasts Superior resonance and sustain from it's dense and woody wholeness. It also offers divine protection against Swords, Arrows, Bullets, and inferior Tone.

The Many trinkets and tools placed upon this guitar are to the utmost quality. Only the dark arts and rituals, could explain the Specifications of this Enchanted Axe. Grover tuners, Tusq Nut, Extra Jumbo Frets. come together to enforce the plethora of reasons to Acquire one of these Instruments.

The Simple Look of Natural Mahogany, with Dark Ebony, and the Lustrous , Dusk like Satin Black around the back and sides. Creates an image of Professionalism, with a hint of Mystery.

Bearing the Chapman Stamp of approval, and the Infinity Symbol which lay peacefully betwixt the 12th fret. (obviously some sort of Magical Enchantment used to make you play there more!) I Have been Drawn to, and must learn more about this...


The Bridge humbuckers sound I can only compare to the roar of an untamed lion trapped in a radio.
Devouring Hi Gain amps like Gimli would Salted Pork, this Guitarnivore pickup screams Rock Guitar.

The neck and middle pickups so called "Extreme Victory" both give you the strat-esque springy bellows a clean holy man desires, while still grasping distortion and throwing it in your face like an Olympic javelin champion.

This versatile beast Hides secret, more secluded tones to behold in its split coiling functions. with the power of this mighty 3-way toggle of destruction, you can cover country twang, Pop, and even use all the pickups at once to create an unstoppable wall of sound. unblockable to any enemies you may encounter.


The Famous Wilkinson tremolo is been entrusted to lead this guitar into unbeatable Jeff Beck like Wobble Spell magic.
As a keen user of String Manipulation Sorcery my self. I urge you to try one of these. The innovative design of this chunk of Alloy, Forged in the Sacred Fires of Mt. Doom, Feels both Familiar yet new in your hands. with it's 6 screw Line of Burrowing Ballasts, pinning the bridge to the dense Mahogany, I assure you this Trem shall be stable. Once setup, this "Deep C Diver" shall return in tune, like an Obedient Canine to his Master Every time.


If I Have not convinced you to Purchase one of these Delightful Guitars as of yet, then I Demand you take a Gander at their Website, in which you may Wander into the land of Chapman and Purchase any 6 string weapons you may need before taking quests of Performing to weeping maidens and Playing to kings at feast, Most Pleasing!

Was wondering if you would care to listen to one of my tracks that I'm thinking of bringing to a 3-piece band project I'm working on.

Any feedback would be most helpful!

Cheers!  ;D

Guitar Gear & Equipment Reviews / Digitech Digidelay
« on: October 15, 2013, 09:24:57 PM »
The DigiDelay is an awesome pedal from the Gods at Digitech with multiple modes, controls, and some other pretty cool features too!

Features:

 Up to 4 seconds of delay
   
 7 different delay types plus Tap Temp
   
 Stereo outputs with switchable CITâ„¢ Cabinet Modeling


Sound Samples:
http://www.digitech.com/en/products/digidelay#

 with the 4 seconds of delay usable in this box of dreams, you can get an array of different sounds, whether it be simple lead tone colouring, funk slap echo, Hank Marvin Strat tape, to Dave Gilmour ambient like tones!

There are 7 different types of delay at your disposal with this bad boy and they are as follows!

1.-3. Are Digital delays of different times so you can accurately get the sound you want by fine tuning with the Time and Repeat knobs.

4. For all the retro enthusiasts out there, included is an authentic Tape Reel Delay which sounds awesome! for Jimmy Page use and Classic Rock Solo Tones this is for you! with a high Mid lead tone, you get some fierce backing for your favorite licks and runs. 8)

5. Here is one of my favorites which is the Mod-Delay. A very creative tool indeed, it is essentially a hybrid of Digital Delay, mixed with a thick Dreamy chorus to make a very nice effect indeed. Great for any clean chord work that needs some magic, or some very sweet soling and volume swells (John Petrucci fans! :D). This effect sounds great with Alex Lifeson (Rush) playing, Steve Howe (Asia) and almost anything Prog Rock and Progressive.

6. Reverse, now this truly is a whacky effect. There really is no "proper" way of using it, it really does lend itself to the users creativity. it basically replicates what you just played backwards! which sounds pretty cool with short chords or riffs, and when doing your favorite licks, it just makes you laugh seriously! could work well with  lot of more modern electronic music, but just remember that with this effect the awesomeness is in the beholder!

7. Finally here we have our Loop function, it has a 4- second looper which gives you just enough time for a chord progression to jam over if that's your thing, is great for teaching, if you need a backing chord to play a run over, or a rhythm to keep to. But more interestingly if you perform solo, you can use the looper to added some little colorings and percussion Looped to go with your performance, and this works great as you can keep overdubbing the loop to add more parts etc. a great tool for the creative guitarist indeed.

Overall this pedal is Packed full of great features, and incredible sounds for the price, it is easily one of the best pedals Ive ever owned. incredibly useful, versatile, and a lot of fun to mess around with by experimenting with the controls. I Recommend that you get in-store and try one of these out if you can find one as you won't be disappointed!

Thanks a bunch

The Planet Waves NS Micro Headstock Tuner. Where can I start!? its a brilliant piece of kit and here's why!

http://www.planetwaves.com/pwProductDetail.Page?ActiveID=4115&productid=592

Features:

    Built-in piezo transducer picks up instrument’s vibration rather than sound
    Improved software for faster response and improved accuracy
    Tri-color reversible backlit LCD screen makes it easy to tune in dark environments while allowing mounting in front or behind headstock
    Wide calibration range (410Hz to 480Hz) and visual metronome
    Compact design blends into the aesthetics of instrument while adding considerably less weight than other headstock tuners
    Tunes acoustic and electric guitars, basses, mandolins, banjos and other stringed instruments

These features make a simple yet effective tuner that works well for any guitarist's tuning needs on stage, in the bedroom, or even on Brighton beach in front of the waves like me if that's your thing!

I really want to emphasize here how tiny and awesome it looks that it can fit snug onto any Guitar, Bass, and even Uke headstock with ease, and no chance of falling off if your jumping around and headbanging.

The Flip Button is great as you can turn the display upside down if you like the tuner underneath your headstock where its out of the way, or on top where you can show off this tiny piece of awesomeness!

This tuner also has a great feature that allows you to activate a metronome with adjustable Tempo, allowing you to practice your chops and rhythm without annoying your buddies or the people around you! i also found that a visual metronome compared to a sound one is pretty cool as it allows you to visually follow a groove say if your onstage with your drummer and your in ear monitors cut out!!!!

The tuner uses an easy to read display that follows:

Red (Out of tune)   :o
Yellow (Nearly there)  ::)
Green (Nice One!)  :tup:

All in all this is a great tuner for anyone that needs something that's simple to use, reliable, pocket sized, and great for the price (Perfect for poor students!  ;) )

I Recommend that everyone should give these a go and see what you think, you won't regret it! will be interested to see what you guys think.

Thanks a bunch

Connor Baxter
