Actually do you even need one of these with a floyd rose?

:lol: 

Need is a strong word :razz:

 

But yeah theyll still do the same job, especially if youre getting van haleny, might be a ballache to pull over the locking nut when you want it though

@Tom nice to see you're getting some use out of the treble boost! I wouldn't have associated it with Van Halen but it does have a some similarities with a slow phaser at the "peak" of it travel. Theres loads of Rory Gallagher footage that had folk speculating he must've be using a phaser but for my money its all Rangemaster (and maybe some badly wired cabs).

@Blastronaut

 

I use it all the time tbh :lol: 

 

Its especially useful for me as I loop a lot & it helps create different layers of sounds more effectively. So sometimes I’ll make a loop with the regular pedals and if I’m playing lead I’ll put that over the top. 
 

Looking forward to actually recording with it too

Nice. I still need to get to grips with my looper, still really hit or miss if I get it in sync. I probabaly just need to practice with a metronome until it clicks (or just practice more in general).

Aye the Rangemaster should cut through any mix like cold nipples through glass. 32dB centered around the upper mids and top end right up to 10kHz is lunacy by today's standards. I love mines, only ever swap it off my board for downtuned sludgy doom stuff.

The fret wrap is bloody handy btw :lol: 

 

Its the small things that can make a big difference. Obviously not suitable for all types of playing but great for sweep picking and isolating the more “expressive” side of the floyd rose, which sounds fantastic without any interference.

 

Tempted to get one for the Les Paul/Strat. Nice bit of kit for £10. I’m aware you can use a sock or whatever but this is adjustable, smart & doesn’t smell.

Picked this up yesterday….probably going to clean it uo and resell having had a play. 
 

Epiphone Riviera P93 Custom Shop/Limited Edition. Beautiful, guitar and not a mark on it. I don’t get on with Bigsby’s or P90s, I use too much drive for the latter.

 

Not my sofa btw, this is at my mams.

We have a big thing about furniture in this thread and honestly is the best policy. So rather than being defensive I was merely being….transparent.

Anyway basically the point of the post was in anyone wants it off here they can have it for £450. 

 

Which is cheap as it’s spotless and nice. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Looks a beaut. I've huge soft spot for these and the Gretsch semi-hollows, really love the sound and feel of them but they're a bit of a headache to work on at the best of times and a lovecraftian nightmare to fix if someone else has already been in there and fucked about with the wiring.

 

P90's should still be viable for high gain. Pickups aren't my forte but in most scenarios id have thought they could be made to do a job. Jason from Legendary Pickups might a good shout to talk to on that subject, he's a high-gain junkie and knows P90's inside out.

Aye, cup aside (as amusingly accurate as it is) it honestly made my day to see that here of all place. Wylie's pedals are fascinating but rare as fuck and as far I'm aware most of the schematics and designs all died with him. I think a majority of his work is still a total mystery.

 

I know a few guys from a pedal forum that eventually got there hands on a Moonrock and collectively recreated it, then spent a fuck ton of time essentially just trying to guess what improvements Wylie made with the even rarer New Moon. They eventually ended up with a much more versatile version of the Moonrock but nobody really knows how close to the New Moon it really is.
