Nice! I dig on Fender. Which reminds me, the '65 Bandmaster needs to get into a repair shop...

I bought the Phase 95 mini. Small pedalboard complete! Need to get a shoulder strap for it, and I'll be able to carry both guitars and my pedals in one trip to/from rehearsals. Heaven!

An AV-8B Harrier F402 engine fan stator section, one of the retirement plaques I got from my Power Plants Marines.

Why I'm also digging the Fender. The Line 6had to have been close to 110 pounds, and the Fender is 34 pounds, huge difference, and I don't have to ask anyone to help carry it because of my back issues.

Yeah, lighter weight is lovely, eh? My old Fenders stay in the home jam room; they're just too heavy. I'd lug them to shows back in my 20s and 30s, but my days of carrying them around are done.

I keep a little Blackheart 3w/5w tube amp with a 1x12 cab at the rehearsal studio. Huge tone and absurdly light. It's great, and it records well without bleeding through the iso box it lives in (it stays miked, as does everything—we rehearse with in-ears).

The gigging amp has become a Vox Night Train (15w tube) with a custom 2x10 that's gloriously shimmery. And also absurdly light. The cab is on casters, but there's no need; I can easily lift it with one hand.

My only solid state is my Marshal as50r, for acoustic guitar. Which works well.

If you want to see truly life-changing cabs, check out Barefacedaudio.com.

Incredibly efficient and very light. Much louder and clearer than a std ported cab.

Good review.

Very cool. I didn't know those existed. Sounds great in that vid. Pricing isn't cheap, but not outrageous, either. 417 pounds is somewhere around $550 for the 1x12.

I have been eyeing bi-directional obd II scanners for a while. With cars getting more and more complicated, with more computers, actuators, etc, I figured if I was going to continue trying to work on my own cars (and relatives/friends) I should upgrade my equipment a little.

Prime day pushed me over the edge with the sale on the Launch X431 Pro Mini. This thing can do almost all of what the $2000+ models can do. Key/fob programming, reading/erasing fault codes from all modules (abs, transmission, srs, bcm, etc), actuator testing, relearn procedures and a ton more.

Already put it to on my car commanding the purge valve to change percent and watching if the evap system vacuum level changed. Great way to test for those pesky evap leaks might be. Looking forward to learning more and more about its capabilities.

Sweet looking device. Be aware that the major auto mfrs are going to wifi based readers to prevent other than dealers from working on cars. There are groups that are trying to fight it. Impacts newer cars.

The Harbor freight lifts are well worth the money, I used one for years before I bought a couple of pro models, now I keep it in our race trailer for use at the track.

Lots of people don't like being told they have to go back to the dealer. It helps if they can be assured it's a warranty or recall item and inexpensive or free. But the manufacturers that bite the hand that feed them pay a price.

I really like mine. Would it be cool if it was pneumatic? sure. But can't beat it for the price. Just don't stand on the front as the rear will decide to come up

Ordered:
2020 Neo brand all aluminum 7.5' x 18' +5' V nose sport trailer. 6.5' tall. Drive/ride in drive/ride out. It's been my plan for several years to get such a trailer. Planning on a side by side in the near future as well so it needed to be taller for that.

Recently sold my enclosed steel 6' x 12' + 4' V nose and my smaller enclosed aluminum 8' x 12' snowmobile trailer that was way too short to stand up in.

Pics of new trailer once it gets delivered.
Here is an example pic to show the style.

The sheet metal aluminum too?

I have a 8x28 steel trailer, would be curious to find out the weight difference.

Todd, if you ever have to upgrade your sound board, take a gander at this l'il baby. touch screen mixer, has a function toping the room and adjust freq's accordingly, plus a feedback killer that automatically kills and adjusts without a stumble. Also, you control your in-ears mix from an app on your own cell phone. Freakin' witchcraft, I tell ya!

Is that yours? Very cool! I only have a crappy little Yamaha mixer at my house, and it's mostly to pump stuff (keys/vox) through the PA speakers (Mackie Thumps) if people are at my house to jam, which is rare.

The project with the music I shared yesterday in Off Topic is all digital mixering, but via pro tools. But I'm in a second project that uses a board similar in theory to what you'e posted here—a Midas M32. It has physical sliders, too, but I LOVE the app for creating your own in-ear mix. We all use wireless in-ears; everything is mic'd, and guitars are in soundproof boxes and bass is DI, so it's really clean and easy to keep the volume at tolerable levels, which is nice.
