So I’ve got loads more gear recently. Excited? Thought so. Of course, by loads I actually mean two different items but nonetheless, my wallet’s still been relieved of a good £300 plus, leaving me with literally jack all money, Jack. Still, such is the lot of the pedal obsessed, talent-barren guitarist.
First off we have the stylish Electo Harmonix POG. A sexy little silver number that promises to create more octaves through it’s sheer polyphonic generating ability than a predictable punchline at the end of a sentence. (I’m not sure what that means, I wrote some of this post really late at night). That’s right. Look above, there’s a picture. I haven’t really got to grips with this so far to be honest. There’s a fine line between crystal clear chimes and oninous bass heavy octaves to stepping firmly into the I-sound-someone’s-leaning-on-a-cheap-Casio-by-accident area, so I need a bit of time tweaking it.
Second on tonight’s gearograpahy rundown is my new, swanky pedal board. Unlike this beast here, it’s made by Diago (possibly the best manufacturers of guitar accessories ever) and is a called a ‘Showman’. It’s great. Really well made, light, robust, all of that… except it’s well heavy when full. Carrtable but heavy. Majorly heavy. But brilliant. And heavy. Did I mention it was heavy? Although it’s the lightest board I’m going to get for it’s quality and it’s only my lack of car and huge pedals (look at that Russian Big Muff, it’s 99% lead) that’s the issue, not the equipment. And it’s still 4000 times lighter than my Fender twin. Still, definately investing in one of these in the near future.
