 What small amps do you guys play through? I have a microcube, but I am looking to trade it in for a Pig Nose, or something small like that. My only apprehension with the Pignose is if I have to…Continue

CboxGypsy replied to Scott's discussion 4 string neck width
"The standard 1.5 is enough, especially when you think of the distance between strings on a six string. Now someone did once tell me that you could widen the distance between the strings at the bridge for fingerpicking, but I never tried it. "

CboxGypsy replied to Curio Bill's discussion How much more difficult is a dog bowl resonator to build?
"I did not get the sound I thought I would out of a dog bowl. I 86d the body, gave the bowl to charity, and used the neck on another git. I had some good luck though with a 4 inch shower drain cover and a tin underneath. I thought maybe the dog bowl…"

"I would probably wind up picking up a variety of tobaccos . I remember getting some real flavorful stuff from the local pipe shop. One was a blend called Hawaiian, and another was a coffee blend. I also like the standard blends. "

CboxGypsy replied to CboxGypsy's discussion Cigars
"Would you load it with an aromatic or a smokey English? I mostly smoke English. Aromatics just have too much moisture and get too hot for me. There is one that is slightly aromatic and sort of herbal called Crooner because it was Bing Crosby's…"

"Gypsy,  I have had a Romeo & Juliet and while it was a good smoke, I was less than impressed after smoking a cohiba. Right now I have a sampler selection that I am smoking my way through from Holts.com I like to switch between them and the…"

CboxGypsy replied to CboxGypsy's discussion Cigars
"I'm at 1 to 2 a week, and a few pipefuls since I collect and sell pipes. I am hoping to one day smoke a havana before I go. I do love a cigar though. Everything about them. I brought a cbg into the shop last week, and a guy loved it and asked…"

Cigar Man Mike replied to CboxGypsy's discussion Cigars
"I love a good cigar! Smoke about 2-3 per week. It's fun to show the cigar shop owners what I do with their boxes. I tried to sell a couple on consignment at a cigar store but found no takers. CBG's attract guitar players  more so than…"

Clint “Uncle Gus” Turpen replied to CboxGypsy's discussion Cigars
"Welp, last night I had my first cigar since around 2002 and...I didn’t like it. I mean, it was fine blowing smoke rings and kicking back for a bit, but it didn’t take long for a real aversion to the taste in my mouth to develop. Kind of…"

Russell Bryant replied to CboxGypsy's discussion Pig Nose Amp
"The Blackstar Fly 3 is what you need. It is light weight and has fantastic sound. Can be played clean or with distortion and also has delay. They are a steal at $59. Russ"

BeetleJuice! replied to CboxGypsy's discussion Pig Nose Amp
"I agree!...those micro cube are fantastic...the pig nose sounds great but is a one trick pony, no effects and half the fun"

CboxGypsy replied to CboxGypsy's discussion Pig Nose Amp
"The issue is not that I'm unhappy with the microcube. I have been very happy with it. I just don't ever get to play plugged in much because I do all my practicing at night, and more or less am an acoustic player. I like the way these…"
