Ahh, that's what I guessed. A lot of people use the SX's for mod platforms.

Agile MIK models are more like mid-to-upper-end Epiphones that can be played stock when you get a good one.

Idk why but I like the idea of primarily owning and playing one main guitar. I have had up to 6 at one point but I realized I liked putting everything I had into one guitar I really loved. Same with amps and pedals, I sold off nearly everything and kept my main rig which is so simple. Strat style guitar into an overdrive/fuzz into a british tube amp.

Dont get me wrong though I would LOVE to own all those guitars you posted! Just find my self coming back to the strat/marshall sound in the end every time.

I'm somewhere between the two of you. I like the idea of a main guitar(s) but I also like some variety (hence my mains are a Strat, a Jaguar, and an LTD-Eclipse).

I'm seeing 3 Telecasters in that collection, quite frankly, why? Seems to me for the cost of those 3 you could get a single custom job perfectly tailored for 'you'. Then again I also still own a bunch of beater guitars, mainly just so I can toss them to friends if they want to try learning (as I've done more than once with my Epiphone) or I can provide enough gear for most of a jam in a pinch.

So... I just got done setting up this pile of awesome in my spare room. Roland seems to be phasing out this model (TD9) to replace it with the TD15, $600 off makes it a pretty sweet deal.



AWWWWWWwwwwwwww yyyyyyyYYEEEAAAHHHHH!!!!

Congrats those are amazingly fun. I used to have the dw5000, that entire series of pedals are amazing.

Thanks man, contrary to that stock photo I ended up with a Mapex hi-hat stand and a Roland accessory pack that included a kick pedal (kp-250) and throne. Not really sure what to look for when it comes to foot pedals yet. According to Google the kick is actually a Tama Iron Cobra jr. with a different face plate. From my perspective - it works, so that's good enough hahaha

Though any suggestions / tips are always appreciated

Now I need to figure out how to properly set that hi-hat, it keeps spinning and the open/close sensitivity isn't quite right.

My gear includes a Tama StarClassic Performer kit in the color of transparent green.After using that for a little while, I added on a 18" Floor Tom of the same type/brand of drum.Another add on, or what I like to call a replacement, was my 12" by 5" Simon Phillips signature Tama drum.It is a handpainted, signature drum with maple wood and gold diecast rims!!!Lately, I haven't actually used any of the toms at all!!!Focusing mainly on the bass, snare and cymbals definitely brings out the talent and creativity in a drummer, including myself!!!I do have Tama's Iron Cobra hardware for my kit as well, including the PowerGlide double pedal.
My cymbals includeall Sabian.)
1.14" AAX Metal Hats.
2.18" AAX Metal Crash.
3.18" HH Rock Crash.
4.22" HH PowerBell Ride.
5.12" AAX Metal Splash.
6.14" AAX Dark Crash.
I'm happy with my gear and love every single jam that I perform in!!!I'd recommend anyone to try to be creative like I have, by taking out all toms and focusing more on the basics...
...You become a better drummer this way!!!Just try for yourself, peace!!!
the boss me25 pretty decent if you like multi effect pads :P or yo can uprgrade on that for a bit more to get the 75 :P

I started my search for a new amp looking for a really clean sound. I first tried a Jc-120 then a 70s silverface fender twin and a 65 reissue blackface. Then I tried a vibrolux custom and was blown away. Its like a fender twin except you can get the nice tube break up with causing yourself to be deaf after AND I can actually carry it. Gotta save my dimes to pickup one sometime. My modeling amp simply cant cut through the other guitarists AC30. I think these two amps are going to sound freaking unreal together when we play. I love surf guitar btw and garage aswell as post punk. With the JC-120 I could get the greatest goth rock sound ever but I couldn't do a damn thing for good raw sound but I could still get a goth sound of the the vibrolux so it makes sense for me to go with that.

How has anyone else's experience of finding the right amp been?
