      If you're looking for a wireless, go with the X2 which is now owned by line 6. It sounds just a good if not better than my D1000.

        I totally agree, I've been saving for one.

        Also, I dig the way you converted it to lefty. I wouldn't have thought of putting a sticker over it ... I always make things so complicated lol
        I'll take some pics of my setup soon too

          I'll check out the X2, thanks!

          You telling me? I went to the trouble of machining two decorative strips to put on the guitar...Then I end up putting a sticker over the holes. Oh well... lol

              GOT DAMN! Finally picked up a cable so I could use my Parametric EQ! I don't know how I lived with out it!

              I bought a Behringer PEQ2200 off ebay, and finally got to use it! It really beefs up the sound, and adds the definition that I like. A real chunky distortion, without being muddy. Real clear! Before I had to jack the highs up so much, and cut the mids that it was just a noisy bunch of crap. Now it is nice and silent, but real clear. The EQ also seems to have some gain in the master volume. With the EQ off, and the amp settings I have I get a more overdriven sound, but with the EQ on, but bypassing everything but the master volume (You can turn each band on, or off) it really kicks it up to a solid distortion. What I may end up doing is getting a second one, and run it in the FX-loop. So I can use one as a EQ, and the other as a booster. At about $40 on ebay, you can't really buy a OD, or booster pedal for that...



              To elaborate on what I was talking about regarding the EQ on/off. Next to each band is a little switch that lets you bypass the band. So if you want you can turn off any band, and let the frequency range pass unaltered. Pretty cool I think.

              My only gripes about the EQ is that it doesn't have a remote plug for the bypass (say if you wanted to use a G-Major, or one of those pedal boards that lets you change the channel on your amp), and it doesn't have proper heatsinks. Now I think I can add a remote pretty easy, because the EQ uses a Relay for "true bypassing." So all I have to do is tap the original switch. That is the easy way anywho... As for the heatsinks, all the heat producing widgets in the EQ are sinked right to the chassis, causing it to get pretty warm! So I'm considering adding so real sinks to it. The last thing I would want in a rack is some rectangular heater...

              Here are my current settings. The channel one is a more mid style sound, and channel two is a more scooped (So I can play more Pantera/Dimebag type stuff). I am only using band one of the EQ on channel one to boost the lows. All the other bands are bypassed. Channel two uses the hole EQ. I can also bypass all the bands, and only use the EQ master volume as a boost, and get a "2.5" type channel.

              Settings

              Channel 1

              Gain- 6 3/4
              Amp- Brit

              High- 4 1/4
              Level- 3
              Master- 1 1/2

              Channel 2

              Gain- 4
              Amp- Brit
              Mode- Hi Gain
              Speaker- UK

              Mid- 4
              High- 5
              Master- 1 1/2

              Parametric settings

              Input Db- 15
              Low Cut- 10
              High Cut- 30

              1
              Frequency- 11:30
              Octave Bandwidth- MAX
              Db Level- MAX

              2
              Frequency- 4:30-5:00
              Octave Bandwidth- 2:30
              Db Level- 3:00

              3
              Frequency- 3:30
              Octave Bandwidth- 3:30
              Db Level- 3:30

              4
              Frequency- 2:30
              Octave Bandwidth- MAX
              Db Level- MAX

              5
              Frequency- 4:00
              Octave Bandwidth- MAX
              Db Level- MAX

              Before I was running my setting something like this, and I had to turn my TV, and computer off otherwise the noise was just to much.

              Gain- 8
              Amp- Brit
              Mode- Hi Gain
              Speaker- UK
              Low- 8
              Mid- 4
              High- 10
              Volume- 10
              Master Volume- 1.5

              That is a pretty big difference in settings!

              New pictures of my guitar also.





              And people say Behringer's suck!

              Oh- I managed to break my low-E string playing some Pantera! That is a .052"!
