First Impression // Sublime Guitars Hippy Joel Overdrive

Just got myself the Hippy Joel Overdrive this week. Got it through their kickstarter campaign. I was a little nervous forking over money for gear I had never heard, but I’ve been REALLY impressed so far. I typically run my Morning Glory and my Mayflower, but last night during rehearsal I literally only ran the […]

Tom Anderson Hollow T

I picked up a Tom Anderson Hollow T a few months ago from Jeff Troxel. It’s been an incredible guitar. I’ve had the AtomĀ for a few years, and have always really enjoyed Anderson guitars. Jeff approached me and said he would be willing to part with the Hollow T, and after playing it against my […]

Flashback x4 vs Nova Delay

I recently purchased the T.C. Electronic Flashback x4 to replace my T.C. Electronic Nova Delay. I took the Flashback x4 on trial, as I was looking for some different functionality that my Nova Delay didn’t have. I was getting more and frustrated with not having easy access presets on the Nova Delay. So I tried […]

I removed the TC Electronic Nova Delay and added the TC Electronic Flashback X4. So far I’m REALLY liking the Flashback. It’s more simplistic in its approach and provides quick options without hassle. I love the presets. I’ll post a review soon…
