    Does the RZK-600 even exist ? I mean, I've seen more Peavey DT sigs guitars than I've seen RZKs.
    I hope you can find one though, they look really cool.


    In the end I couldn't get the Fusion, which is a bummer. But I got a white DK2M that should arrive next week, and I have the cash for both a 6505+ and a 3120 now.
    I guess it was a blessing in disguise :)

    So it looks like it's in the cards for me to make a big purchase a little ways down the road, but I'm stuck on deciding exactly what.

    I'm torn between a new bass (and further from that, WHICH bass...) and a new guitar amp.

    I'm pretty set on basses right now, but I'd really like something multiscale so instead of just rocking C Standard with my band, I can drop down to G Standard and reach down for some lower octave stuff. Got my sights set on a Dingwall Combustion for that, or saving a bit of cash and getting one of the multiscale SRs. That being said, I do have two perfectly workable basses right now (Am Std Jazz V and Aerodyne Jazz) so I don't NEED a new bass, they both sound/play perfect for what I'm doing.

    On the other hand, while I don't play guitar as much as I do bass and I don't have any bands I'm currently playing guitar in, I did recently get rid of my guitar amp (Valveking II) and currently have been playing through either my Mustang II combo (bleh) or my bass amp (also bleh). So the other option is to fill that void. The big contender is a Dark Terror head and a 212, although I'm considering a 5150/6505/5153 which might be overkill.

    So yeah, that's gonna be my next gear purchase. Dingwall Combustion 5, Ibanez SRMS805, Orange Dark Terror head/Orange 212, or 6505/5153.

    I actually have the SRMS805. It's VERY very good.

    I was going to hold off buying gear until I found a good deal on a Dingwall bass, but.. I just bought one of these!

    And a flightcase, cabling and a Mooer Baby Bomb poweramp to go with my AX8 so that I can have an all in one portable rig for all my work.
    Also sending the last payment on my next Aristides which is finished any day now. Christmas came early this year :)

    I don't support people throwing money at some pedal builder that makes enough to be driving a McLaren. Just imagine how cheap those components must be to get that kind of margin! Only if we find out he's Yakuza can I get you that pedal.

    Is a Leqtique 9/9 really that good and could you use it with a clean amp pre like the Mooer Daytripper, Two-stone, Matchbox, etc? Or should I just get a already good hi-gain preamp like the US Gold 100/Fried Mien?

    The Leqtique stuff is good. I have the 10/10 and it is killer. The 9/9 just has slightly less gain and is voiced with more mids iirc. And yeah they are drive pedals meant to go in the clean channel of your amp. I've also used mine direct into a Fryette PS2, but it sounds better through a clean tube pre IMO.

    FWIW, there are subtle differences between the L'effects versions and the Leqtique. Some, they use slightly different circuit or different op amp. Jake Cloudchair does a lot of good demos for them. He had said the 10/10 was virtually the same, but he preferred the tone of the bigger Leqtique version of the 9/9 when he A/B'd them. But keep in mind his tonal preferences - he's not a modern metal guy.

    I did not have time to preface this, because it was an impulse buy. Gonna pick up a used RG2228 today.

    I wonder what "La Grange" sounds like played in F#..

    That was meant to be a joke originally, but that song would actually lend itself well for a _very_ heavy arrangement. Half time feel to the drums, gated guitars. I can hear the solos being bluesy Holdsworthian in style, as well.

    If I only had the time.. :shred:

    That's funny. I almost order one every time I order from Amazon. I got like every other pedal from that series, but never bought the Chorus for some reason.... even though I love Chorus, and have like 8-9 Chorus pedals.....
