The TPC1 is more authentically correct sounding than the CB-1.

Yo! A few things to point out... the CAE and authenticity has been beaten to death her in the past. And, Waldo here is the proprietor of Wald-Electronics

Most people seem to enjoy both but here Waldo gets shinning review.


Yo?...Hey man, thanks for the info! Being new here, I have no idea whats been beaten to death or not. I'll try searching that topic and see how it's been beaten to death. I checked out Waldo's site and think its very cool! I gotta say this CB-1 sure sounds sweet, but then again I havn't tried the other! Peace.


Well, after reading 3 pages of arguing between waldo and riverat, I think you could have summed it up for me with the same amount of typing as it took to say what you did! Anyway, the CB-1 sounds just fine and maybe sometime I'll try waldos and compare....they are very easy to change out. Your right, most people do seem to like both. peace.

Are you really saying it's my job to give you the cliff notes? You were misinformed if you think that's my job. And, if we are talking about effort, simply saying thanks would have been easier than saying what you think I should have done.

Holly shit...after reading all 3 pages of posts about this and all the arguing and squabbeling and "behind the scenes" bullshit, your ear is the only true judge. It's sad that there is even any questions about it at all. It is very true that you don't really even need any preamp buffer to sound like "Jerry tone", but it is a useful tool. Peace.

You joined a board, asked for help, criticized somebody who didn't give you an answer you were satisfied with and then called him a jerk. Sounds like you might need to take your own advice to be kind.

He didn't give me an answer. Read it again genius! He wanted to know why I used the CB-1, and scolded me for not bowing to waldo and using his. That is not kind. He is a jerk and so are you for not knowing what your talking about.
Yea, thats the point... I didn't get any help! I got scolled by some waldo suck up and had to read 3 pages of arguing instead of getting help. Is this board a "click" of wanna be's or what? I started off being very kind. I asked a simple question...got one or two friendly responces (thanked them), but no help and then the the "scolding" started. I've been listening and playing GD for 42 yrs and just thought id give this "board" a try, and have never run into people so "self proclaimed" and conceded (speaking especially of the senior members). I always give everyone the benifit of the dought, but when someone wants to get pushy, arrogent and conceded with me, they will receive my unkind thoughts. If the tables were turned and he asked the same question, I would have helped him whether there were previous posts and endless discussions or not. Trust me, I will never ask anything here ever again! This is not the only show in town by any stretch and waldo is not the only guy who knows how to wire a guitar. I've wired many guitars, (including tiger with all the switches and correct specs) and was having a mental block because I'm not used to push pull pots and was tired.I asked for help that (as i figured out the next morning) required a quick answer. Get real and be honest! Goodby, good luck, peace, love, compasion.
live simply, love generously, care deeply, speak kindly.......Jim

Now that I have looked farther into the workings of this site (administrators, monitors, seniority, pathetic rules to control people, power trips), Jerry would be laughing with embarressment and turning in his grave.

You asked for help got it. You asked if CAE was authentic and you were pointed to a thread discussing it.

You call names and make accusations. I'm not sure what you actually want here but all you've done thus far is cause drama.

Geeeeze- who WAS that guy?

We return you now to your regularly scheduled programming. Had this been an actual alert......

Its funny how people assume what Jerry would do, from hearing different stories of actual interactions between Jerry and random people his most likely response would be who gives a fuk, please leave me alone, I'm busy.

To the Hippy guy, internet forums are not the same as meeting people face to face. It is easy to read into things that aren't there too. That is probably the #1 offender to fights around here. Plus, It is easy to assume people should behave all the same way as if we are all meeting at a Dead show. Well that is flawed thinking since we are not; some of us are at home, some at work, some in a daycare, some in an old folks home, as for me I am in a high security asylum. All these environments spawn different emotions.
Stummin saying "Yo!" looks like the first thing that rubbed you wrong and that is kinda silly. Also don't judge a whole site on the fact you wanted to challenge the intent of one or two posters. IT SEEMS, Stummins intent all along was to keep you from doing the normal faux pas of internet posting, not hurt you, if you stick around it is amazing to see the same topics resurface like a bad case of jock itch.
Plus, you will see many peoples opinions on here that you may not agree with. That doesn't mean we all share them either. The difference between the CB1 and WB is an opinion, not a right or wrong. Lots of esteemed Rukinders use CB1's and/or Wald buffers. No one was telling you that you are wrong. So who cares if bdhact thinks one buffer sounds more authentic than another? that's his opinion, and one he has formed from reverse engineering both buffers like Waldo did.
In conclusion, I still love you Hippyguy.

I guess I trashed this thread by proxy!

JonnyBoy... sometimes you post things that rub me the wrong way, others you post up and I say "Man, I really like the way this guy thinks!" Your last post falls into the latter category, very well said.


Now I'm off to 4Chan /b/ , the people there are so much NICER than they are on Rukind!
