Let's Wish A Happy Birthday to our legendary guitarist Mr. SCOTT GORHAM born in March 17, 1951 is an American guitarist, and songwriter who rose to international recognition as one of the "twin lead guitarists" for the Irish Rock band THIN LIZZY. Scott Gorham was the longest-lasting guitarist in the band's lineup. He began a long songwriting partnership with Phil Lynott. After Thin Lizzy brock up, Gorham joined Phenomena II and released debut album "Salute" in 1992. He has also played with Asia, The Rollins band, and Supertramp. In 2012, Gorham co-founded the Thin Lizzy spin-off band, BLACK STAR RIDERS, in order to showcase new material, the band released three albums "All Hell Breaks Loose" in 2013, and "The killer Instinct" in 2015, and "Heavy Fire" in February 2017. And our legendary guitar solo of the day is the solo performed in "THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN" by Gorham and Gary Moore. "The Boys Are Back in Town" is a single from Irish hard rock band THIN LIZZY. The song was originally released in 1976 on their album Jailbreak. The song was written by Phil Lynott. "The Boys Are Back In Town” rides high on the powerful twin guitars of Gorham and Brian Robertson as they recorded on the song. He and guitarist Brian Robertson, both hired at the same time, and together developed Thin Lizzy's twin lead guitar style, Gorham and Robertson would begin to perfect dual-lead approach with this album, as it and the aforementioned single proved to be hits worldwide. In this video clip the collaboration between (the twin lead) Gorham and Moore is incredible, and considered one of the greatest twin lead guitar solos in the history of Rock. 🎂🎸 Follow : @hovig_guitar_👍🎸👊

What a day! My feet literally haven’t touched the ground! This is one tired girl who now has her bottom firmly pinned to the sofa, ready for #theapprentice 🤓 I have a full day at the bench tomorrow, trying desperately to get my ‘to make’ list down. And I have a Pop Up Christmas event on Saturday so no down time for me until Sunday. Then I will be having a proper day off which will be the first in 13 days 😳 although really I should be Christmas shopping 🤣🎄 hope everyone else is coping with the Christmas build up 😊😘😘
NPD - @trexeffects "Replicator Junior"
TL;DR this is SO DAMN GOOD I have gone past gushing its praises, and am now just speechless & content! .
Sometimes we buy mini versions of popular effect pedals because we're more concerned about the size, accepting that they *may* not sound the same, or have the functionality of the original full size version. Sometimes we buy ridiculously physically large pedals (such as the Fuzz Face or Big Muff Pi) because we know they're gonna sound amazing, and accept that they they're not pedalboard friendly and may have other quirks. The pedal pictured here falls into the latter; the T-rex "Replicator Junior" is the largest single effect guitar pedal I have ever seen, it weighs a lot, has physically moving parts which require upkeep, requires its own power supply, requires replacement cassettes every now and then, and is in the top price bracket for FX pedals, but OH MY GOD THE SOUND! I can honestly accept every single one of these minor inconveniences because of HOW ABSOLUTELY IN-FREAKING-CREDIBLE IT SOUNDS!!! On top of that, you have tap tempo, a tape saturation control (which adjusts the volume of the signal hitting the tape) and locking controls (like on the Ibanez "Tonelok" series). But, seriously, the tone; the GORGEOUS, CRISP, SWEET, SHIMMERING TONE! I A/B'd every delay pedal I own against it and, whilst none of them sound bad, when you flick back to the Replicator Junior, it's like your tone just comes alive. Honestly, it's like your tone achieves sentience and whisks you away to a sunkissed beach, where you can listen to the waves crash against the shore for days on end. As I said, this isn't a pedal for the faint hearted, and I wouldn't recommend it to every single guitarist I know, but I WOULD recommend it to anyone looking for a real tape delay that isn't afraid of getting their hands dirty and doesn't have to worry about pedalboard size restrictions. #guitarpedal#guitarpedals#guitareffects#guitarfx#diypedals#diypedal#diystompbox#diystompboxes#guitar#guitarist#guitarplayer#guitarplayers#diyguitarpedal#knowyourtone#vintagetone#distortion#distortionpedal#electricguitar#guitars#pedalboard
