Whooo Whooo, I Won!

I admit it. I'm a sucker for sweepstakes. If it is free, I enter it. A few days a week I go to Guitar Player Magazine and Bass Player Magazine and fill out the entry forms for their giveaways. I also go to a few sites of the big online music dealers and fill out their entry forms. Guess what! I won!

Here's my name as a daily winner at Sweetwater. And I even won something that I'll be able to use, a Zoom G9.2tt guitar processor. Up until now, my processing has all been very old school, using a variety of analog stomp boxes on this homemade pedal board.




This is the processor that I won.


This new processor is a mix of analog and digital and has the ability to program patches so I don't have to dance to get certain mixes of effects. It is also lighter in weight and a lot smaller (the photos aren't to scale). On top of that, it has a lot more effects than I have on my board... but we'll see how it sounds. I've spent a lot of time and money picking out my stomp boxes and I have some great sounding boxes. It won't be easy for the G9 to cover the sounds I have as well as I can at this point, but we'll see. It may make up for any deficiencies in sound by its flexibility and muscle. It will be fun to find out. In the meantime, the guy from Sweetwater called and left a message with my daughter and will call back again to get me.

Thanks Sweetwater!
