    How do you like that little Vinny?

      I love it! I literally laughed when I first opened it and saw how tiny it was! It is loud for a tiny amp! Perfect for practicing in a bedroom and the tone is still full. My favorite feature is the line out which can plug back into my other amp for a second drive channel. I don’t need an overdrive pedal with this setup!

    Awesome! Congrats on the new gear. Enjoy
New year, new board layout! Okay maybe a new pedal or two ;)

    This is awesome. How are the keys on the Rhodes? Are they still moving smoothly?

      Thanks for the followup! I replaced all the key felts, hammer tips, and damper felts and it plays loads better! It will always have the buttery type feel since its about 42 years old, but it doesn't flub out and all the tines work properly! I even replaced two pickups that were going out and it sounds the most consistent than it's ever been! I can't wait to start recording with it! Now all I need are some knobs!
Finally finished refurbishing my Rhodes MKI to playable! It’s still got a ways to go aesthetically, but I’m going to stop for now. New passive electronics, rubber grommets, hammer tips, key pedestal felts, tone bar screws/washers, damper felts, and a TON of elbow grease cleaning up the internals! Plays loads better and sounds amazing!

    This is the guitar that tarted it all! Saved up every penny to buy it. It’s been with me through the years and I even met my wife while I was playing it!

    Bet these sound great through your Rhodes

      Sounds really really good! The condor tightens the lows and low mids so it’s not too muddy. The Rhodes shines best with the Noble and cali76 though! The Dark World Mod setting combines with the Spring is my favorite setting. Keep the mix below noon though!

    I'd love to sit there and play with this setup. Man!
1976 Rhodes that I brought from Miami! Can’t wait to fix her up and start playing!
Hauled this up from Miami! Can’t wait to set her up with my Minimoog! #fenderrhodes

    Oh wow! Please post another when you set it up!

      Sure thing! I opened it up and it needs a lot of work! She should be ready in a matter of weeks though!

    I've been thinking about one of these Nord boards for a while. How do you like it?
    • Kristopher Criado

      Honestly it’s one of the best boards because it doesn’t really get outdated. Most of the samples are backwards compatible and sound incredible. It’s also designed for on the fly sound design

        Thanks for sharing. I've always been a Yamaha guy. I have played so many of them. I got really interested in the Nords when I heard their sounds. Very clean and pro level sounds.

    What kind of is that with the p90s?
