No worries for the late reply mate. I think my drummer mentioned going to Neon, but I'm not sure where it is more than it being in Birmingham. We've got a couple of songs down now and just want to road test them at full volume before we start looking for gigs. Should be a good laugh.

What sort of music is your new phone doing (assuming that phone has been answered yet!).

I think we're heading in the pop punk sorta direction but we'll probably put our own spin on it. He has answered his phone now, an our first studio practice is next week I think. Look into MAS records, my mates bands go some sort of deal going on with them that helps out payin for practices, recording etc. I don't quite know how it works, but if my band goes well he says he'll try and get us involved with it, so it's all good :)
and again, sorry for the late reply...

Alright there mate,

I just noticed in your sig that you're using a couple of Artec pedals and I was curious about them. I'm always up for a cheap and decent pedal, so how are they?

Thanks in advance,

Quite nice actually.

I bought the wah first. I needed one on the budget so I picked it up for 70 after shipping. Better than the crybaby gcb-95 but not quite like the higher end ones. However it sounds great.

I then bought the 70's drive blender and the blues overdrive. I loved em both, but I didn't need the blues overdrive as I used my Cool Cat Drive for blues tones, so I traded it, however it was a nice tube screamer style drive.

The drive blender is great. It does what it says, mimics tones from the 70's. You can get anything from acdc to iron maiden and aeromith to metallica with some careful eqing.

I recommend them.

So do you jam with anybody over that way? Any good practise studios?

theres a few good places, theres JJM in walsall, but my mate used this place in birmingham near reverb, the music shop. they said it was good but its a fair walk to get there.

hey i just left a comment on your four kicks cover but in case you miss it-where did you get the backing track or are you playing the song with a band???

Hey there man. It was a recording I did with my drummer, so we made everything that you can hear :) He did the drums and the bass track and I did 3 guitar tracks. One with an RG for the thick sound, one with a Tele for the cutting sound and a Tele with a TS9 and Big Muff for the solo :)

Thanks for the comments though :D

I'll check out your cover now :)

Nick xx

Haha thanks man. It's good to see someone else here isn't a complete kook!

Yeah, I was thinking of throwing some Dimarzio Breeds into it... after testing some at least. They seem to be made for basswood 25 1/2" scale guitars.

The stock hardware isn't too bad, but yes... definitely getting better tuners and more tremolo springs.

This is still up in the air, though, because I can't manage to sell my semi-hollow... I'm going to try and get both guitars appraised by a local guitar shop, and see if they'd buy both (yes I know they would rip me off). I'm guessing I'd get about $300-$400 for both guitars, and the guitar I'm looking at right now is $360 + $40 for shipping... and it would obliterate both of these guitars stock.

I noticed that you upgraded the pickups in your GRG170DX...

Would you recommend it? I have been considering selling both my guitars to get one that's better than both of them.

Does the pickup change really do a lot for the guitar's tone? Was that the only modification you did, or were there others? Because the tone from your band's myspace is pretty good.

Hey mate, just saw your sig in a forum and see you got the Epi Valve Junior now like I recommended How do you find it?

I actually put a wanted post on craigslist for a 5w tube amp. guy offered it to me for $75. It plays like a dream at full volume. I am going to do a few mods to it. Thanks for the recommendation!
