    ...it's not always a damn duck!

    Why do people on this forum continue to insist on thinking this way? They pull the whole bogus logic of "perception is reality" when in reality there's a lot more to the story than what your mere imperfect perceptions tell you. Perceptions only capture a very small part of what is happening. When you rely only on perceptions only, it makes it very easy for people who are out to screw others over to "pull the wool over your eyes". Moreover, you will never understand what is really going on when problems arise with your gear if you continue to think in this fashion.

    Try focusing more on what you're NOT seeing/hearing than what you ARE seeing/hearing. Lots may find that you just may get a bit farther with the whole "tone chasing" game than you are. ;)

    I had a Wah that sounded like a Duck. I called it the Duck wah.





    Agreed though.

    That applies to troubleshooting just as well as it does tone-chasing. Well stated, Jon.

    As would most ducks who get killed by hunters due to falling for a decoy would think. ;)

    The thing I like about the AFD100, is you can get a lot more "quack" in your tone.

    Jon while i totally agree with you its part of the learning curve.....we say it all the time "i read it on the internet"....whats the best way to learn?......fall off the bike then try again...i'm no different in that i need to hear/feel/see it for myself....not everyone agrees with the teacher all the time...yet years later what do they do?.....just what the teacher taught them.....if they dont heed your advice so be it.....one day they will say "Wilder was dead on and i should have listened" ....the real learning curves happen when perception does not equal reality......i'm at the point when i speak from what i know and get my balls busted for posting it i just laugh .....i may be wrong every here and but in the end i can only offer what i know.....take it or leave it

    I have nothing but the utmost respect for all of Australia. Hell I wish I could move there. However, there's always one bad apple in every bunch and that bad apple just happens to be one that can't handle Pete Jackson's and Cascade Draught. ;)

    I for one know that when it walks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it's sure as heck ain't a chicken! I know my farm animals!
