This would be a great reason to buy the book :-) HOWEVER!

That’s not the sole reason why it's a great book :-( Many writers have contributed and all the important artists have been covered. The weird thing about the book is that's it's actually a good read for both beginners and old-timers like me. This book is also full of great pics and anecdotes, but you should really check it out for yourself! Here's a link to it on Amazon: Rockabilly: The Twang Heard 'Round the World: The Illustrated History I never heard anything better than a Fender if we're talking about the big manufacturers.

I see no problem in that, even if you're trying to get a vintage'ish sound.

Quite on the contrary actually: If it hadn't been for cheap hi-res sound cards, I could never have afforded to experiment and record as much as I have.

Here's a page with photos of some actual recording sheets (for "Anyhow" among others) where you can see how the Sans Amp was set. The Sans Amp GT2 pedal was made to be used as a line-in effect between a guitar and a mixer (hence the name; "Sans Amp" which means "Without amp").

I play through my 1968 Fender Showman which has a very clean sound at all volumes. I never did care much for the sound of line-in recordings of guitar though and that's why I only use it as a "normal" pedal between my guitars and my amp.A great new book on Rockabilly has just been released.I've contributed with my article on Burlison/Martin and some info on the European rockabilly scene and its bands.Anyway, I AM in good company with the DD-3 as Scotty Moore (Elvis Presley) also is using one nowadays alongside with a chorus (to emulate the frequency impurity of a tape echo). I haven't tried this one myself, but the online sound samples on BOSS' website sound pretty convincing to me.However, I'd like to mention some alternatives: Other effects : Distortion : The BOSS FBM-1. I still prefer the Sans Amp though, and I think it's more HI-FI than the BOSS (It SHOULD be actually, because it's a studio effect, which is a notch or two above a guitar pedal in sound quality).If the room is very dry I turn up the E.level to full.
