I'm also looking forward to more lessons from you Ben...that E9 Vamp lesson is really cool...reminds me of Steely Dan. The tricky part of the lesson is not that it is too technically challenging...just enough...but its the phrasing and timeing(especially since there is no guitar pro tab) that's giving me the challenge. But the challenge is good. Getting caught up in technique is not so helpful if one's phrasing and timeing aren't developed properly.
peace.

In sooo many ways Ben biggrin.gif little to zero extra noise so no hissing, no "fizz" which i found really annoying with stock pedals. The sound i can only describe as bloomin awsome!! on the "seeing eye" setting you get a fantastic rich tone - every note stands out clear and its very musical sounding.

On the ultra mod its a killer FAT tone, it just howls and screams - awsome! biggrin.gif

Its definatly the right perscripton for use with a tube amp - when i overdrive the amp naturally and use the pedal your in for a shred fest!!! I like to go bananas with my tapping paul gilbert style and it sounds great! bends and vibrato never sounded so clear whilst destorted,

Needless to say im saving up for the Keeley TS9-808 which is very pricey but i reckon worth it !! I will probably run that pedal and my fantastic DS1 in tandem for hotrod tones! cool.gif

Haha Tony-I expect i shall do at some point, especially for rock playing.

I bought it new from keeley direct! they were very helpful, and responded in no time. I really CANT WAIT to buy the Tube screamer!! smile.gif

Dont think boss anymore - think Keeley! they replace all the cheap components with high quality stuff, then add there own mods to it as well!!
