A guitar player, who also plays bass, drums, and harmonica, and has played country since forever gave me this delay pedal the other day.
We were talking about what I like to play through, amp wise, and I mentioned that the main thing other than the amp was a delay, and I'm set. I have all the microphones I need for the moment. I always come back to the Audix Fireball anyway. The next step up would be a very costly mic and I have no call for that unless I am playing scenes which I am not now playing or likely to play.
that's all I need for now, just the basic delay with proper controls. The Bassman will do well with this I think.
I found the generosity quite touching. Cliff and Linda and I were over at this guy's house and he went into his workshop/music gear room and came out with this delay pedal. He said he has a few of them. He does have the gear, no doubt. He and his wife have hosted some cool events at his house with the PA set up on his back patio, with a lot of musicians playing.
There is a bit of that going on in East county and around San Diego.
I guess I'll start using amps more and maybe bringing the delay and my own mic with me to some of these things. It could be worth it. Not much call for the amps just yet though. That may change when we get out and about with the people I've been practicing with in Poway. Why not ride with it even if I wonder if I'm nuts.
