    Hi folks.

    I stumbled over this place when looking for some reviews etc. on the Marshall Code last week. I've been learning guitar for 2 years now having spent a lifetime around my Dad's guitars, but never having had the patience to learn until I hit 35... I've loved music my whole life but never been able to play, I wish I'd persevered in my teens when I first tried this!

    The two years since I've started playing have been brilliant fun. I'm obsessed with learning more and more stuff - both by playing and by reading and watching as much content online as I can find time for. I'm still very much at the late beginner / early intermediate level but I think I've already got further than I ever expected to. I still have huge motivation to learn and play every single day, it's such a great hobby but the amount of information out there is mind boggling!

    In terms of kit I have somehow ended up with three guitars and two amps already... plus a small pedal board. Guitars are a 2016 Gibson SG Faded which I've owned for 14 months, an Epiphone Les Paul Standard which I bought in February 2015 as my first guitar and a with some soldering help from my old man I built a Tele copy from a Thomann kit which I then upgraded. Both my amps are Marshall - a DSL5 that I bought back in the summer and a Code 25 that I bought a couple of days after Christmas. The DSL is amazing, I've always loved the Marshall sound but didn't really expect to buy this... I was looking at the Blackstar HT5R but when I tried them back to back in the shop the DSL was the clear winner. I also had a Blackstar ID:Core 10 which I've just replaced with the Code, and the Code is better all round and so much more along the lines of what I wanted. It's taking me some time to get used to it, but I'm getting there with building my own presets and totally love it.

    I'd like to give huge thanks to the guys on here that built the PC editor, patch lists etc. as that's all going to be massively helpful.

    Cheers folks.

    Hoping to stick around here and both learn lots and contribute as much as I can.

    Andy

    Hey Andy! Gear is addictive man! You're not alone - most of us around here start getting the itch if we don't start moving gear around every couple of months or so! :yesway:
