Episode #4 of Guitar Search Saturdays takes place in an awesome store called the Music Swop Shop in Melbourne, Australia. This particular store is “Japanese guitar heaven”. While they sell only used electric guitars, they only stock good stuff which is a sight to be seen. This particular shop also stocks some of the best electric guitar amplifiers you’ll ever find under one roof. I hadn’t been to the swop shop for years so revisiting the store was a whole lot of fun for a guitar nerd like myself.
Episode #3 of Guitar Search Saturdays takes place in another second hand shop. This particular store is “quad box heaven” featuring a number of huge cabinets that will never sell. They also have a range of pretty hilarious practice amps on display including the official “worst deal” I have ever seen in my life. That aside, they also have some pretty cool guitars and effects pedals which are worth checking out for sure.
Welcome to Episode 2 of my Guitar Search Saturdays series of videos. Episode #2 takes place in an actual guitar store located in Melbourne, Australia. They primarily stocks Gibson and Epiphone brand guitars. If you’re a huge fan of either of these two brands of guitars you’ll get a kick out of this video.
This first episode of guitar search Saturdays takes place in a second hand shop in Melbourne Australia called Cash Converters. This is a new series of videos where I head into random guitar shops, second hand shops, pawn shops, and more taking a look at what guitar goodies we can find. You can find a mix of cheaper gear as well as more expensive guitars in Cash Converters. It really depends on how lucky you are on the particular day. On this day, I found an amplifier I ended up buying a few days later.
As you know I have done many demos for the Tone City products over the last 12 months and with good reason, those pedals are great. It only later came to my attention that the Movall pedals were on the market long before Tone City and are very similar. How similar? They are the same internally and were designed by the same guy Jason in China. The only difference with these pedals is the artwork on the pedal enclosures.
If you’re looking to buy a one of either, know that both sound exactly the same. It basically comes down which pedal you can find in your area or which design you like best.
I will be moving to Movall pedals on the INTHEBLUES Tone Shop over the next few weeks and whatever Tone City pedals I have left are it. Movall have been a lot easier to order from and work with so it’s a no brainer for me. I am not sure what happened with Movall and Tone City but that said both pedals are great in terms of build quality and tone.
