Wizard CLIPZ

Alrighty so I recorded some video clips with my camera of my Wizard.

This first one my Power Jet into the wizard, but its got the timmy running it up to get some nice cleanish crunch. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22KlIjDDcs4
And yes i managed to break a string right at the end, and keen listeners will even hear me drop the F-bomb afterwards

The next one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PqPiaHqqwI has straight amp + tele with seymour duncan humbuckers tone + some more pedal boosting, and my poor attempt at metal 

yeah... guess thats about it 

EDIT: second clip on there now :)

Dam Voltages, amongst other things!

Alright, so i'm really bored and just drank a massive can of energy drink so i'm in the mood for typing for some reason 

So i recently bought my Dream amplifier from the USA, one i've been looking for for a loooooooong time, and even better it was a custom model and the only one of its kind i've seen ever. its dam sexy :)

BUUUUT because i bought it from the USA it means it runs at 110v so that means i have to get it modded here for it to work. which i'd been told was a very easy job. and it is.... But it took me that long to work out how to do it (in the end i contacted the builder directly). and because of the amount i paid for it and my absolutely shocking soldering skills, i have not got the guts to do it myself.

And then we come to the next problem... I work 9-5 monday to friday so that means i cant get it to a techie at the local music store to get it done without bringing it with me somewhere for some time.. and then we go back to the value and me babying it :p:

and just when i had a chance to do it with a free weekend, it had to be the easter long weekend and i'm going to melbourne.

So what this all means... is i've had my dream amp for nearly 2 weeks, the custom matching cab i got made up here for almost 3 days... and i'm unable to even turn it on.


so to the no one that reads this stay tuned and soon you will have a seriously epic NAD on your hands....

... or you could look at my gear listing over there << and see it with pics.. either or :haha:
