A/B switch, Y cable, Reverb tank--what's wrong?

Hi, Let me preface my post by saying I know a looper pedal would probably do the trick better but I'm hoping to find out why what follows doesn't work. I want to use an A/B switch (I bought the DOD 270 a/b box) to route either straight to my amp OR to my reverb tank and then to my amp. I had Redco m...

Tallest Man on Earth--Shallow Grave Holy shit I have to get this record. Saw him last night the Troc and was blown away. Jeff I can't recommend it enough. I still listen front to back, over and over 8 months later. May well be in my all-time top 5. Phenomenal playing and great singing. Sounds to me...

i forget the drummer's name, but boy does he ever get a good sound outta his tubs. John Convertino. Absolutely amazing drummer. I've seen them live 5 or 6 times--including this past August at the Newport Folk Fest. Everytime time it's been hard to watch anything but his playing and the awesome feel...

I can't help you but you may want to check out the 'Analog Only' forum at homerecording.com/bbs . There's a ton of Tascam talk going on there and quite a few knowledgable folks.

I wish people here talked about the whole writing==playing/singing==recording==promoting cycle more. When you're doing your own stuff, the recording part is like 10% of it. How to get something worth recording, and get anyone curious to hear it . . . there's the challenge. 'People Skills' seems lik...

Why wouldn't Digitech cash in and start building them to the first generation's specs? 1990 or whenever wasn't so long ago that the same electronics have disappeared right? Maybe it's just an economies of scale type issue or something.

Tim from Music Technology got my 8 track up and running. They're in Springfield,VA.

Not sure whether he'll make house calls but he may be able to lead you in the right direction.
