yes. the "Speed Cobra" is also great, which is lighter and smoother than the Iron's.


Never tried those...but i pretty much like the "weight" one feels under the foot with the Cobra's. It makes me hit lot harder, thus getting more sound out of the bass drum.

Has anyone had experience w/ Black Arts toneworks' pedals? I've heard a lot of mixed reviews.

Kinda curious that you use those Axis pedals...from what i've head of OTOH/Mare your drumming style is more "hammering" than "lightspeed 3000 bpms" (personally i also prefer that first approach). I find Axis to be too soft and not having enough power. They are good for whoever wants to play hiperfast, honestly i prefer the good old Iron Cobra's or, even better, Pearl Eliminator's.
The owner of those pedals are the drummer of Celestial Bloodshed. I wouldnt touch Axis pedals even if someone gave me a million dollars. Have been using Pearl E for the past 6 years, but I`m thinking about switching to Iron Cobra.

I wasn't wrong then. It seemed to me that you were an Elems/Cobras guy. I can't stand Axis too...soft as shit.

Regarding the switch you talked about, well, honestly i think its totally a matter of taste. Both are equally good and reliable.

Love the Iron Cobras, they hit hard and are just smooth enough. I'm not a fan of the Axis pedals, one needs to completely alter their foot playing style I think. I'm a stomper and they don't work well with that approach.

I think my band is getting the boot from our monthly room (not because we aren't respectful tenants but the guy carrying the lease is giving up the space) so I've dragged most of my shit except my amps back to my place to reassess everything, here's my pedalboard, usually it's a TU2 > Woolly Mammoth clone > Boss Phaser > Boss Flanger > 616 Delay > EHX Q-Tron, if I'm playing guitar I might swap out the Mammoth for the Big Muff or DS-1 or whatever.....



The flip side of the case is my harsh noise rig for when I'm out harshing it up, usually the Muff/DS1 > Memory Man, the candy box is a homemade noise generator built by a friend of mine that makes the most awesome noises ever, from droning weirdness to all out noise wall.....



I mostly play bass lately but I stiff find time to use my SG once in a while.... the bass is my favorite thing in the whole world, I want to get another but fretless for my next GAS purchase.....

My amps I didn't take a pic of but it's a JCM900 100w half stack and a Yorkville 200w Bass head and 4x10.... I think they're going to have to go into my mother-in-laws basement for the time being Confused Shocked Confused Evil or Very Mad Rolling Eyes

Memory Man is great! I used to have the same flanger, very nice, kind of regret getting rid of it.

Little update on my gear:

Amp:
Mesa Boogie Dual Rectifier 2 ch. (Main amp)
Conquest Bonsai G240 (Back up amp, with a great clean sound and in combination with the EBS MetalDrive a nice thick and fuzzy overdrive)
Randall RH150 G3 (Back up hi-gain amp)

Fx:
EBS MetalDrive (It's actually a pedal from our bassplayer, but I use it as a boost at rehearsal)
Ehx Holy Grail Plus
Harley Benton Tremelo
Boss GT8 (I don't really use this very much)

I'm currently looking for a decent not too expensive loopstation, any tips on that? I really have no clue what I should be looking for.

Hahaha looking at that board I've traded almost all my pedals from previous pics. Currently using: dyna comp clone > earthquaker white light > rat clone > big muff v4 > boss DD7 > Cathedral reverb

I bought a vox delaylab but I'm selling it to buy a flashback x4

I also sold my Marshall and bought a Fender Super Reverb

Is anyone aware of somewhere I could pick up an empty amp head shell from? Preferably in the UK? Recently scored a decent Laney AOR 100 combo, all the guts are really easy to remove and I want to box it for gigs. Highly recommend the amp actually, quite close to the JCM 800 2203 in terms of sound, but with more headroom.

Does anyone on here have experience with this?

It's fairly priced and looks like it's easy to use.
