My Bobby rig with an SMS!

My Bobby rig with an SMS!

Postby strumminsix » Fri Apr 08, 2011 5:49 am

I very much love this new setup and get some killer Bobby type tones. A cmatmods deeelay in back with an Emma, Calinbread Serrano Picaso, Barber LTD SR, and Maxon PH-350. I know some folks swear by the flanger and I agree it was present alot but the swishy from the 350 really gets you there IMO.

Thanks, guys!

I can easily cop my favorite 70s years (74, 76) and an 80s Bobby with it!

It's all dependent on my pickups splits, how high I set the gain on the SMS and where I set my OD pedal!

For the trick, I think, is that the SMS is SS but sounds very much like a tuber. That's really awesome for me!

looks good! I noticed you got the rack mod! I thought of that one! Is there something wrong with the speaker that the dome is offset a little? I have seen this before and wondered about it. In fact I have a K120 on the way here that looks like it could be a little off center!

They sound good and look straight. A few things to consider:
- cell phone camera
- basement light is up and to the right in relation to the pic
- the cab was designed with about a 15 degree tilt
- I'm slightly off center


combine those and I think mystery is solved :lol:

I was hoping that was the case, the K that I bought is on the way but the guy said it was the pic that looked weird. Far out rig, looks familiar!!

Sweet looking, very compact for all the stuff you have there... What is the axe you are sporting as #1 right now?

Jonny, my #1 is still my Rice! It's my #1 for about 5 months now which is almost a record :)

That will VERY LIKELY be replaced soon, though. I sent Rich Hoeg a Tele and asked him for a graphite reinforced ModyGenesis style neck that is in the works!!
