    I have a few different amplification options.
    1) A Marshall GR 15 CD about 25 years old. (Bought for $100 in San Diego a in about 2004,) They don't make them anymore, and I've modded it from...

  3. Re: Continuing my electric education

    I have used a Mooer with a Line6 POD 2.0 with no problem.
    The POD can only do one on-board effect at a time as far as I am aware, so having some octave with, for example, tremolo is not a bad thing....

    Re: Where to go from here?

    Hi Bill,

    Where to go from here really depends on what you want to do with the EM8.

    My advice is to get a Line6 POD 2.0 off ebay or Reverb. They're cheap and they will allow you play with a lot...

    Re: Today's favorite stomp box...

    I have two minds about multi-effects units like yours. On one hand, I love the idea of one box 'to rule them all' as it were. On the other I am resisting the idea that I should have to learn how to...

    I visited Arthur's home once more than a decade ago, when I was living in the Bay Area. He was hosting a mandolin get together.

    Re: Eastwood Rickenbacker

    I had a look at and a tinkle on a Ric mando at a NAMM show in 2010. (A long time ago now, admittedly.) I was unimpressed, especially for the price. Given the size of the neck and the string spacing...
