Re: Which (edit) distortion (/e) pedal would work best for m

There are so many good ones out there...from what it sounds to me like you're after, I'd recommend the Full-Drive or Full-Drive 2. The 2 has a clean boost and a more distortion-y side as well. I don't know a whole lot about 'em, but I saw a fella I know playing out last week with one between an olde...

Sony Tapecorder 500A

hullo, folks... Does anyone out there know much of anything about this particular unit?

Anybody going to TapeOpCon wanna do me a BIG favor?
