Live looping sketch #7 - "The Möbius Strip" (Ambient Guitar Looping - Strymon Mobius & Pigtronix Infinity Looper)

I was trying out my brand new Strymon Mobius and recoded this little live jam. Tubes on my amp were just about to die so there's plenty of strange noises and hiss coming from the amp...  But I actually like it! :) I also used my modded Harley Benton SG on this track and it's a pretty nice sounding guitar.

Fender Super Champ XD tube swap (Tung-Sol 6V6GT and 12AX7)

I've been running my Fender Super Champ XD with the stock tubes for way too long. The stock tubes were just about to die and generated a lot of noise and hiss. Last week I also started to get some strange volume drop issues.

So, I got some new Tung-Sol tubes (2 x 6V6GT, 1 x 12AX7) yesterday and installed them today. An instant upgrade! Now the amp sounds a bit more brighter and there is more clarity and clean headroom. There's also less noise and hiss. Money well spent!

New Pedal Day: Strymon Mobius

I've been looking for a good versatile modulation effect for quite some time and finally the search is over! Strymon Mobius was my number one choice from the start and I ordered it last sunday. The pedal arrived yesterday and oh boy, it's just an amazing piece of gear! :) I'm posting an in-depth review in few weeks!
