The slide rig does look very good, but I have got fed up with effects peddles. Back in the day I would have a wah, fuzz, phaser and a Fender rev. Now all gone. My amp gives all the sustain I want, especially when playing my Burns TR2 (it has a Fernandez Sustain unit fitted, so sustain is infinite, or at least as long as the battery lasts) PT Really I would love one, I don't get on with a volume pedal and play some lap steel where I think I would like use it.
Hi all, I've been following this thread and had a look for demos. I can't find one comparing the slideRig in stage 1 mode and in stage 2 mode. On the other hand demos of the Cali76 show it to be versatile and producing a wide variety of sounds. So why do slide guitarists use the slideRig rather than the Cali76? Bill
unfortunately he doesn't demo the slideRIG, but alludes to the circuit mods that are added to the cali to specifically make it more noticeable than the OEM 1176, which was designed for transparent recording use. the slideRIG does have some adjustments inside to tweak pedal response. but i haven't needed to for my use.

sadly my pedal detox recovery training didn't take hold as well as yours.
still cling to 2 each MXR 10 band EQ pedals. coupla delay pedals also.
since retubing the EHX english muff'n with olde school 12AU7 valves/light bulbs like it for low volume harmonic fuel additive. not a substantial sustain from this but "shimmer/sparkle" enhancement in low gain settings.
plan to start using the digitech 2101 twin disc studio again soon, but for recording rather than guitar use. you just can't beat these for noiseless homegrown recording without huge $$$ outlay. will require me to learn how to program it again with patches designed for just that purpose.
been quite a while now.
the magic behind these is a totally digital signal path behind 12AX7/ECC803 STEREO preamp section. even stashed a coupla low hour telefunky "diamond base" short plate ECC803S i grave robbed from a discarded harmon kardon P-P 6V6 monoblock amplifier to install and replace the OEM "groove tube" valves in this.
was gonna put them in mic-pre amps, but changed course when little sonic improvement came after rolling tubes.
the scheme: a noise gate > EQ > comp > reverb/delay> EQ for the basic microphone patch to be parameter seasoned for each recording session to taste.
come march, itself will be 65 years old. that's 9+ in dog years... fully intend to become gainfully unemployed then. will allow a legal precedent to set all that gear up ~and leave it unmolested for next~ soon following use.
look back at 40 + years of trying to fill the bottomless hole retirement ponzi scheme only to realize that every dollar i contributed in the 1970's will have to be worth 6 dollars now, JUST TO BREAK EVEN.
fully intend to liberate my repressed music tendencies to overcompensate for all the years of deprivation i chose to endure providing some form of a financially stable environment for my family.
only two more moons to go!
