    The specs are right and the price is right; I'm just hoping the indo QC is right! My first Ibanez was a prestige, so I'm hoping this doesn't feel like too much of a downgrade.

    I like a lot of stuff. Hell, I'm listening to bluegrass as I type this.

    Favorite tones are James Hetfield, Adam Jones, KSE (My Curse), Slipknot and Dimebag. I grew up on thrash, (I'm 52) but some of the early tones are too thin. Physical disability (neuropathy) prevents me from soloing, so I play mainly rhytmn. When palm muting, I like to feel it hit my chest.

    I came to the conclusion that I probably don't want amp like a Revv- while I love to listen to more modern stuff I doubt if I'd ever play it.

    And thanks for helping.

    Dude, this is honestly one of the better and most versatile distortions, don't believe the hate meme.

    More than likely the Friedman JJ Jr.

    I really want this but I have also been looking at a Kemper for a long time. I really like the tones from this JJ but it is a toss up as of now. JJ Jr.jpg

    the mt2 is good and has always been a good pedal, it's just people like to hate on it because it's finicky with the mid frequencies.

    I don't think in the entire time I've played guitar that I've ever owned one of these pedals. I saw one for 20 bucks and figured I'd see what all the fuss is about. I also hear putting it in the FX loop is what does the trick. I figure it's something cheap to play with while I wait to get my boost pedal

    it depends on the amp, some work fine with it up front, some work wayyy better with it in the fx loop. it works relatively well as a boost too. that's how kirk from crowbar/down has used it for years

    Yeah I'm doing industrial type stuff so some buzzsaw kinda tone works at times. We'll see how I get on with it. I like my sound now..although I could use a touch more gain. We'll see what I get outta this thing

    That's the Kirk Windstein rig. Metal Zone boosting a Randall head. Have the EQs at 12:00, volume max, and a hair of distortion

    MT2 is surprisingly versatile, if you want to use it as a distortion pedal, it’s best used with a clean channel that doesn’t have a bright cap (box of bees otherwise).

    Also works cool as a boost into a dirty channel, if you’re into that Cannibal Corpse kinda sound.

    Waza MT2 is cool, the custom mode is very improved, many of the MT2’s original faults are fixed, but it’s still an MT2.

    That's pretty much what I'm doing. MT2 into a Randall. We'll see how it goes

    I thought about getting the Wazazone..but I figured I'd try the original. It was only 20 bucks and unless it's great I probably just have it as something to play with. I'm not all that certain I'll stick with it at all.

    from the clips i've heard i don't hear a big enough difference to warrant the extra cost over a regular mt2. :shrug:

    Before I even learned about boosting amps, I had the RX35DM and felt it lacked the gain. I one time got curious and pushed the front end of the dirt channel with a Boss DS-1 I had lying around (Level max, gain super low, tone at like 2:00 maybe?) and was like... holy shit why have I never heard of this before? :lol: So yeah, boosting a Randall RX series would be killer.

    i bought one last year, damn good guitar for the price, i got a strandberg copy, had a bad trussrod when i got it so they sent me a whole new neck with all the hardware on it and even a pack of strings, i will definitely buy another one from them if they make a 7 string strandberg copy.

    Not particularly interested as I think it's too compressed in the one or two demos I could find, but you guys might be interested in the Joyo Uzi.

    Took care of some shit financially so I should be good to start buying gear again. Gonna build a GuitarPCB Sunn T pedal - as you can guess, it emulates a Sunn Model T preamp.
