    Just pushed the PayPal button on a Gigrig G2, Free The Tone PA-1QG and FT-2Y, Boss CE-2w and Walrus Audio Monuments.

    Moving to pedals from rack gear...

    Also a T-rex Soulmate Acoustic.

    Now that I'm well equipped in terms of amps, I just realized I need something battery powered to use at night / on the road. A pod/ v-amp maybe.

    As for Solar aren’t they sold out constantly?

    I'm gearing up to get some heavy duty noiseless springs from FUTone.com

    I got the Gotoh power springs, but I'm curious about the FU Tone ones. Would help since i got a tremolno.

    I'm adding these springs to my FR/7620 in my avatar, and to my TFS6 that has the Gotoh 1996T, both have Tremol-No's installed.
    I'm also going to be replacing the Gotoh with a new one after 23 years since the knife edge is finally worn, so with the new trem, studs, springs, and a Big block on the new one, this'll likely last my remaining years as I'm almost 53 & don't gig out as much anymore.

    I think I need something like this. Both Ibbys have the stock springs but after changing to 10s from 9s (standard tuning) the plate is either three springs screwed all the way in, or two springs screwed out to the piont that it feels like it is literally hanging by a thread. The problem with three springs is that the trem flutter (all good fun...) is reduced. So I'm thinking a couple of heavier and noiseless springs would help?

    I actually prefer NOT to have the flutter, because there were times when it would occur just from heavier palm chugging.
    I use 4 springs on the TFS6 and it stays in tune nicely because it moves less when I have the tremol-no disengaged & fully floating.

    I notice the space in my trem cavity is pretty tight. Made diddling the Tremol-no a bitch. I normally use 3 springs, but I'm wondering if I can get away with just using 2 of the Gotoh power springs, or 2 of the FU Tone heavy duty ones if it comes to it.

    Also, does the Type O Negative Roadrunner Collection count as gear? Because I just bought that. :lol:

    Just got a set of Gotoh locking tuners for my Holcomb SE. Now I have to find a proper replacement nut (Graphtech 6643 seems to be about the right dimensions, anyone knows if there's a direct drop-in nut for PRS SEs?)

    Ok, I picked up a couple of stompbox pedals cheap, Boss ST-2 & DS-1.

    I have an HM-3 on route, and would like to add an HM-2 to that soon.

    BB Preamp and an OCD incoming, almost went for a KOT while Ebay had one of its 15% off days but managed to resist the temptation a bit longer.

    Instead of KOT just buy two bluesbreaker pedals and run them stacked. I run a combo of two or three of these: VFE Blues King, Snouse Blackbox v2, Marshall BB, Vick Audio, Xotic BB (or Soul Driven)... plus a Klon clone, Tumnus, OCD, Boss Blues Driver, Bondi Sick As, or TS.

    Less wait time and $$$ and more versatility... not that the KOT or POt aren't great pedals...
