Interesting idea.....but I don't think it'll work in my case, as my amp's "crunch channel" doesn't have enough gain, to get that amount of overdrive/sustain.....if I turn up the amp's gain too much, the sound just "cracks"....so I need this effect for more gain, in order to get the sustain I want during solos....


I can see what ya mean, the Blues DeVille would have a more traditional creamy kind of overdrive. I only learned of this idea recently, and though don't use it much, it certainly put my thoughts in a spin....it just occurred to me as being so obvious afterwards...sounds fab when I switch from the pedal to the amp. Say, where you have a grungy, comping type of verse part, but going into a really open ringing kind of chorus or bridge part. And, boy do those Marshalls ring!  8)

They sure do!

I used to have a Marshall JCM 800 50watt lead, and a 4x12" 300watt speaker....

It could deliver unbelievable amounts of MID, and I guess thats where the "ringing" come from... ;) ;D ;D

Since the Gaffophone is an acoustic instrument no effects are used.

There's one small problem when it is played though. There are so many loud vibrations in the low frequency spectrum that big disasters occur in the near vicinity of the played instrument.

I'm very new to all this as I've just taken up the guitar, so nobody laugh at my gear >:(

As I didn't know if I would take to it I haven't splashed out on the guitar, but I HAVE taken to it and have been promised by the good lady wife that I can have a Strat later in the year if I'm a good boy ;D

Currently all I have though is an Encore E1BTR
and a Fender Frontman 15R amp

I've been offered a good deal on a 'Les Paul Junior' by my local dealer.....I've wanted to own a LP Junior for a long time, but never found one I could afford... :-/ I'm really tempted... :)

Gibson SG Std (the 2001 vintage)
Roger Giffin handmade strat thing (now with Roland synth pickup)
Some other guitars that are cased away in the loft including an Aria semi-acoustic, and Antoria Les Paul copy (bought in 1981), a 6 and a 12 str acoustic (can't remember what they are) and some horrible nylon strung thing with the worst action ever.

Marshall JMP1 pre-amp
Marshall 200watt stereo valve power amp
2 x Marshall 4x12
Line 6 Pod XT
Digitech rackmount effects

Boss Chorus, Digi Delay, Autowah and summat else all lurking in a dark corner with a Morley Wah wah

Roland GR33 synth lurking under the effects

ProTools LE 6.0 running on a Mac G4 with Atmosphere, Stylus and Unity.

Miscellaneous mikes, keyboards and a bass guitar of indeterminate origin. Could do with the strings boiling.


All I need to do now is write a song  ;D

You suggested a Strat, sjsbrfc (what is your real name?  ::)), and you can't go far wrong there mate. The Mexican made Fenders are pretty good quality. I nearly bought a Mexican '50's Stratocaster a few years ago. If you can get a hold of a Japanese Fender from ebay/classified ads/etc they're even better. The American strats are lovely, but a bit dearer. Like anything, it depends on your budget.
Now, if you're after a real guitar the Telecaster... ::)  :D
