    I can't believe they finally got this working again. Activebass is still problematic. You can't post anything on it. Glad to see they got one of the Fretbuzz working again. Probably a little too late. Dave

    If you're looking for a practice amp, I highly recommend the Peavey Vypyr 30. I just grabbed one a couple of weeks ago, $199 together with the pedal. It's an amp modeling amp. The headphone jack from it sounds freaking amazing too! It puts the...(more)

    Awesome bro! I put my rack stuff away awhile back and have enjoyed the pedal world ever since. I still prefer individual pedals versus systems but I know the TC systems make some great stuff

    Both Tubes and Solid State are good for metal it's just gonna sound a little different which also depends on certain settings from the different type/brands/model of amps in general. Of course Tubes are more expensive and Solid State is cheaper....(more)
