    JHS. Metal Zone shirt. Yeah baby. I'm happy to not know jack. It's more fun just knowing sound and quickly discerning what knobs to turn to get there.

    Have an Ikon, best I could get for the money. I notice everytime I get 'that' piece of gear, it only reveals it's worth and potential if everything around it is also stellar: right guitar, right amp, right settings, and excellent dynamic personal performance on the instrument.

    I did find the DS-1 in the garbage.
    I once found a guitar amp in the garbage, a Peavey Studio 110. It caught fire at the first gig I played it at.. But it was at the end of it, thank god.

      Yeah, I can make the finest gear sound like early Misfits.

        I have three Klon KTR's. After buying one, I wanted to be sure I had at least one for the rest of my life.

        But if you want to know what a Klon can do why listen to someone who can barely play?

        Most of the guys demoing Klons can barely play.

        Here's who you need to be listening to:

            here's what i know. after playing through (not watching youtube videos of), the soul food, the golden horse, the mythical overdrive, the tumnus, the archer, and a klon, they all sound slightly different. in a blind test, i chose the klon. YMMV. i would never pay the price people are asking for the OG, so i've been using the mythical overdrive for a few years now.
            Quality riffs in about a minute...

              Jeff Beck IS a legend, true, but he is not the only legend out there.

                  Jeff Beck is going to make anything sound good. When a guy of modest talent is squeezing a righteous tone out of a piece of equipment I am impressed.

                    I've yet to hear it.

                    Most of the guys doing Klon demos might be able to squeeze toothpaste out of a tube but lack the touch to squeeze a note out of a guitar.

                        Then you don't listen to much.

                        I've seen vids of Clapton playing through an assortment of crap, and sounding just like Clapton as good as he ever does. I can add a dozen names to that list.

                        Jeff Beck could be giving a concert through POD Xt behind and amp and you'd swear it was the greatest thing you ever heard.

                          Look very closely at the shirt....that's not exactly what it is.

                            I probably listen to more actual music (you know: harmony, rhythm, actual melody) than you do.

                            And I probably know more about Eric Clapton and his music and gear choices over the years than you do too.

                            But that has nothing to do with fumble fingered nerds demoing Klons and not being able to get the magic tones out of them that a player who can actually PLAY get out of them.
