New Kicktags For My AX8!
My new Kicktags arrived today ready for the Paramore (Or Less) O2 tour next year. There's nothing worse than hitting the wrong switch live, especially when you've sprinted across stage after a solo expecting a pleasant clean sound only to hit the wrong switch and end up in death metal central for that pretty quiet bit of the song.
Thankfully Sukh Ryatt, owner of Kicktags, came up with this ingenious solution of using magnetic name tags that attach to my AX8 (and my MFC-101 previously) so that hitting the wrong patch is a thing of the past.
I've booted these around stages for a while now and they're road worthy, especially with Sukh's no wonk label surrounds (theres nothing worse than a wonky label), and are being used by the mighty Steve Vai amongst many others.
I also like the fact that they're modular so that I can change out the labels for each band. For example have the track names for a PoL gig but have generic sound names for a function or effect names if I'm using the AX8 in stomp box mode. Plus their glow in dark ability makes them easy to see on a dark stage.
