    Took this in the Fall, at a Battlefield park near my home, using a Tokina 11-20. There's just something about subtle sun flares in wide-angle shots that I really enjoy.

    What the...?!!? That is awesome! Does it still have a motor-driven blade, or do the pedals power everything?

    All about bicycles

    I've used both brands, and prefer the accuracy and simplicity of the Elemnt Bolt. I don't use a heart monitor with it, just the speed and cadence sensors. The Garmin I had was the 530 series, the newer, higher-tier stuff might be better, but for my needs the Wahoo unit is perfect.

    All about bicycles

    Happy to see this thread. I love mountain bikes almost as much as I love guitars. Very lucky to live in a burgeoning mountain bike mecca, so I ride several times per week. Last year I completed the BC Bike Race. A 7 day stage race through various territories in BC. Starting out in North...

    Normandy American Cemetery (edit: posted wrong photos) and Omaha Beach - Normandy, France. Such a powerful and incredible sight, thankful I was able to visit in person. A sincere thank you to all of those who paid the ultimate price.

    Disappointing Blues Jam

    Just do like George Lynch and start shredding all over their nice little jam.

    What PRS Tremonti guitar is this?

    Added an Archon 100 and Stealth Cab to the arsenal but....

    The Archon is such a good amp, the loop noise is a real shame. I just wish PRS could at least admit there's an issue. It seems lots of people's concerns have been disregarded or deemed insignificant. To imply it's more user error than design flaw is off-putting and doesn't make you feel warm...

    Archon Head / Tons of mid range

    Actually in your first post, you said you used it with several pedals in front and a delay in the loop. That's not the same as what I mentioned. I suggested you used the amp with nothing else, to see if you can use your many years of dialing in awesome tones, to see if you can get in the...

    Archon Head / Tons of mid range

    I've used mine pretty extensively for the past 8 months, live and in studio. My experience has been that the amp is inherently dark. I'm not sure what kind of music you play but I go for heavy, balanced tones with lots of gain, with very little mid scoop so I can still cut through. The depth...

    Archon - I Finally Played One

    Shared EQ is the biggest shortcoming of the EVH 50-watter, it's really a shame. The Blue channel is just so nice, with such a distinctly different voicing from Red. But if someone wants to legitimately use the clean channel in a live situation, there is no chance of using the Blue. And IMHO, the...

    Can we talk about Paul for a minute?

    Well, I already inquired about the dialogue you quoted, asked you for a link in post #9 and you never responded. This confirmed that you weren't actually quoting anything, just spewing hyperbole. When you do things like that you have to expect people to assume you're an off-balance troll. And...
