I'm putting in an order for an Orange CR120 head and their 2x12 cab this afternoon once I stop by the bank to throw a cheque into my account. Then it's just a matter of waiting a couple of weeks for it to arrive :nana:

nice :lol:

I actually opted to have my rig shipped to the nearest L&M store (15-20 minutes away by car) rather than shipping it straight to my place. I save 60 bucks on product insurance that way, plus I only had to pay a 50% deposit at checkout instead of the full price off the hop since I just pay the rest when I pick up the rig.

I've been reading up on amp and cabinet info all morning at my desk :lol:

Oh it'll be glorious!

Keen in mind that that's in Canuckian Money, too.

edit: looks like it's about $450 for that amp head in Ameribucks, Phen.

That's so fucking cool. I'd love to learn how to fuck around on a drum kit some day, or at the very least learn my way around a drum machine. I can already half-ass my way through Pro Tools at the most rudimentary of levels, so that'd open up my creativity possibilities fucking endlessly.

I feel like my playing has gotten far, far better over the last six months. I mean, I'm new to the instrument, so by all rights I damn well better be improving. But it's a real trip to start listening to songs and thinking "yeah, I can play that if I get ahold of the music and give myself a day or two to woodshed the fuck out of it". My teacher even had me peel off an improvised solo over something he was playing, and there were definitely parts that sounded legitimately musical. It's even affecting how I listen to music. Fuckin' stoked, bud.

Hey Phen, you get that drum kit yet?

I'm still waiting on my stuff from Long & Macquade (god I hated ordering from them. Think the Canuckian version of Musician's Friend or Guitar Centre), but it's only been a week and a half since I ordered it and the estimated turnaround time was 14 business days so it's still not due yet. Still... better believe I'm antsy right now :lol:

I'll be thinking of you when I watch Christmas Vacation this weekend :lol:

You would not believe the restraint it's taking to not be calling L&M daily giving them the "where's my spy camera?!" business :roll:

Just got the confirmation that my amp and cab are ready to be picked up as we speak! I happen to be finished work in about 12 minutes, so I guess the responsible thing to do is to go and pick that bad bitch up post haste!

Hey guys I'm looking for a good locking bridge that'll keep in tune through a lot of whammy abuse. I'm looking for one of those ones where you cut off the string ball and clamp the string in place. Any tips?

You could always get a Floyd Rose and block the bridge. You'd always have the option of removing the block later.
