Best Distortion Pedal for a Tool Sound (Adam Jones)
Tool's Adam Jones uses Mesa/Boogie and Diezel amps to generate most of his distortion tones. But if you want to go the pedal route, the Empress Heavy is going to get you a very similar sound, among others. Image via https://www.instagram.com/p/CB8PZquHvUA/
DOD Rubberneck Review (pedal in hand)
I use delay in a very rhythmic fashion, so I want it percussive and a bit thicker. This is the Rubberneck's strong suit, with a powerful, chunky analog tone and some digital-esque flexibility. I've used the Line 6 DL4 for years, yet the Rubberneck was honestly a better fit for me. If you try it, use a little bit of breakup in your amp.
Supro Delay Pedal Review (pedal in hand)
The Supro Delay is a simple and straightforward analog delay circuit, modeled after a '70s ambience but without the noise. I like the tone, and how they've mellowed out the bypass switching to avoid the harsh clicking. It's perfect for a simpler delay sound, especially if you are setting up something like a slapback delay where you don't need to worry about changing delay time as often.

4 Best Places to Buy a Taylor 814ce Used
There are several different ways to find a used Taylor 814ce. First, you can look for used listings on places like eBay and Reverb. But you can also look at used markets within Sweetwater and Guitar Center. I actually bought my 2005 PRS CE 24 from Guitar Center online, which shipped from a physical Guitar Center location in Illinois. I've had that guitar now for about 12 years.

Gibson J-45 VS Martin D-28 (direct comparison)
We can't go against either of these guitars as they're two of the nicest and most popular in existence, at least in the higher price ranges. But the J-45 does give you LR Baggs electronics, where the D-28 does not have electronics (which some might prefer). We also like the warmth of the Gibson's tone, though you won't find us complaining about the D-28's sound quality either. Image via https://www.instagram.com/rudi_bults/?g=5
Martin D-28 VS Taylor 814ce (quick comparison)
The biggest differences to consider between these two guitars will be the body design with a traditional dreadnought (Martin) and more contemporary concert shape (Taylor). The concert has a thinner waist and a cutaway, which gives it a brighter tone profile, while the dreadnought is warmer and more mellow. As a result, the aesthetics are also a lot different.

Music Man Kaizen Price Guide (updated [wpdts-month-name], [wpdts-year]) - Guitar Chalk
This price guide covers the Ernie Ball Music Man Kaizen electric guitar. It's a high-end, metal, and technical style electric with some unique innovations that Ernie Ball developed in collaboration with Tosin Abasi. Keep in mind, it's not a Tosin Abasi signature. Instead, it was developed with his design and input. The Music Man Kaizen price tends to stay consistent among major retailers. Image via https://www.instagram.com/alexi_cho_china/
Taylor T5z Classic vs T5z Pro: Any differences?
The main difference between the T5z Classic and T5z Pro is the tonewood material. For the top pieces, the Pro uses Big Leaf Maple and the Classic uses Mahogany. The body of the Pro is Ash while the Classic uses Sapele. While it's not explicitly stated in the product description, we'd also assume that the wood in the Pro version is a higher grade.

Roland Juno-X VS Jupiter X (synthesizer comparison)
The processor (sound engine) and controls are largely similar, but the Jupiter adds the I-Arpeggiator AI feature and a much heavier metal chassis, which we'd expect can take more damage than the Juno-x. Still, the price increase with the Jupiter is a lot, so we'd expect most would do fine with the Juno-X, especially if you're looking for something for a smaller studio or church.
