haha Cheers @Hinfrance !

it's amazing how much features are squeezed into affordable gear nowadays. with new technology coming out all the time, the competition is feirce in those kind of markets.

I've only tried the fender mustang amps a few times, but was surprised by the sheer versatility and features.!

Very Interesting video @Hinfrance nicely depthed opinions on the two models.

I myself have the 4th generation model (big fan of users Tom Morello, Jack White, and Radiohead).

I can totally see where you are coming from with the, some of the suggestions you had noted, i could happily agree with.


From my experience with the 4th gen model (pretty similar to the 5th layout wise), I'm pretty content with the single activation Button, and rotary knob to select sounds, although it is a bit fiddly. I've recently seen a manufacturer create a sequencer Dual footswitch to go through the different effects, and apparently tweak/improve some too.

The only main bits of grief i have with my unit are:

- chassis is good and strong, but a bit heavy, makes transporting my pedalboard to gigs considerably tougher on foot!

-Powersupply it takes the opposite voltage/current to the rest of my pedals, and i cannot not power it with my Voodoolab 2

-Although i love the infamous filthy sound that the pitch effects create, comparing the cleaner sounding EHX pog units. I sometimes wish that there was a switch to clean it up fro when playing chords/cleaner sections, more musical aspects ;)  IS that what the classic/chord mode is for on the 5th model?


Great video, and I hope to hear your thoughts.

Cheers,

Connor

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!

Hey Guys,

I discovered the guys at Kingdom Guitars recently, and their "Dark Defender Special Edition" is an absolute beast!

With Wilkinson parts, Wilkinson P-90 pups that scream tone. It has a very comfortable slim neck, Medium Jumbo Frets, and a Light weight body. its just a comfortable diverse beauty, with the quirks there to please your utmost desires.
