Re: OT! Re: if you want to pick on Peavey...

Yikes! How did this thread get started?!  Any way, I've used a lot of 
gear in the last 25 years.  (I'm from MS where its made...) And *every* 
I give their stuff a try again, I get burned.

>>It is these dumb beginners that mess up.

Peavey's gear has always been noisy and much of it seems to be aimed at
I guess they do make a few medium-priced guitars like the Wolfgang thing
(which I actually like).
My first Squier strat was made in Japan, and was a *great* guitar for $250.
I used it for much the same reason Mark C. mentioned below.  For real
stratiness though, I use my G&L S500.
At any rate... they don't make a serious looping device (not that this will
prevent a long and evil smelling thread to arise....) and every piece of
gear Peavey, or otherwise can make spiffy sounds in the right hands.
