Affordable TCs

Some of us think the TC Electronic pedals are above average but sporting near boutique prices; that's the primary put off. This range of new TC Electronic pedals allegedly retain the manufacturer's very polished tones at just a fraction of their core offering prices: USD50. These would make very good festive acquisitions, yes?

In the mail today- Timber Tones picks. I'm swallowing some pride & returning to wood. I used to find wooden picks detestable but I guess I was bothered by the size more than anything else. This time, I'm giving the jazz size a go. It's gonna be a busy weekend.

Affinity's hues

Squier fans- here's a look at the new range of colours for the Affinity Series (many more in the range). The manufacturer did the right thing in moving away from the established finishes which mirror the Fender range. With all due respect, Squier is in a position to manifest some individuality in this aspect & they have flexed their muscle, so to speak.

Offset prices

Prices for the Fender 2016 Mex Offset models are out:

  • Duo-Sonic/ Mustang: USD500
  • Mustang PJ bass: USD550
These were not meant to be pricey, I personally feel they are listed fairly in view of the tier they are in & the country of manufacture. Keeping fingers crossed for their availability here 😬

Pop(ped) juice

The battery popped in one of my pedals. Nobody was harmed largely due to the fact that the pedal was tank grade & contained the explosion. This battery came default with my Seymour Duncan Killing Floor unit. I was wondering why this happened since:
  • it was never connected to any PSU
  • no guitar cable was left in tact when the pedal was at rest
I have a fresh 9V battery in my Killing Floor just to make sure it wasn't the pedal killing it (no pun intended). Safety first, everyone. 😛 #justsharing
