I’ve managed to tick something else off my gear bucket list this month 🙂 But will I like it, or will I learn that not all sought-after gear is worth it?Continue reading “New Arrivals: September 2023”
After ticking off a whole heap of bucket-list items in July, August was mostly about something on my bucket list that had nothing to do with guitars and gear. Yes, I do have a life away from browsing eBay listings 😂
I did pick up a couple of items, though …Continue reading “New Arrivals: August 2023”
At the end of 2022, I said that I want to revisit some gear that I used to have. Completely by coincidence, I managed to pick up both pedals (one of them pretty rare) this month – along with another pedal off my bucket list, a pedal that I’ve been asked about … and pretty sweet guitar that I plan to gig with.

It’s impossible to talk about the King of Blues without comparing it to the Analogman King of Tone – because that’s the question everyone wants to know. Is it a King of Tone clone, or (at the very least) a passible substitute?

This month, I had – and took – the opportunity to add a couple of increasingly-rare tweed tone pedals to my collection. In both cases, I’m very glad that I did.
I also tried out a new (to me) pedal brand for the first time: NUX. I grabbed a couple of their pedals. Both were excellent in their own way.

A week or so ago, I picked up a new (to me) NUX Morning Star overdrive pedal.
Is it going to be another fantastic find, a big disappointment, or somewhere in between perhaps? Read on for my First Impressions of this pedal.Continue reading “First Impressions: NUX Morning Star Overdrive Pedal”
I recently picked up a new (to me) Bearfoot FX Honey Bee X overdrive pedal.
Is this going to be the Honey Bee variant to rule them all? Will it be the Honey Bee that finally knocks my beloved Sweet Honey Overdrive (SHOD for short) off my pedal board?

I recently picked up the black sheep of the legendary Honey Bee pedal family: the Honey Beest.
And I’m going to get through this First Impressions review without making any jokes at all about it being a beast of a pedal 😂Continue reading “First Impressions: Bearfoot FX Honey Beest Overdrive Pedal”
I recently picked up another tweed tone pedal: the Gee Willikers (Model G) overdrive pedal from Bearfoot FX.
