He's always going through whatever he gets his hand on...lol.

Re: Need more 80's!


Kind of a rash decision, but I couldn't pass it up.


<5 Watt Soldano SLO clone that has almost every mod available. I figured this and the JCM1 shall put all amp GAS to rest. Can't wait for it to arrive!

That's a beauty!
Make sure to post sound clips when you get it.

Also--details on that little monster.

Re: Need more 80's!


There's some technical jargon.

■Modify power amp to use EL91 tubes for total power around 4.8W (that’s right).
■Use 6N2P(-EV) tubes in preamp instead of standard 12AX7. The only change made to accommodate these beauties is different heater wiring.
■Added Depth control.
■Reduce fx loop Send level to be more pedal friendly. I added 1K resistor in parallel with existing 2.2K resistor on Send triode cathode resistor. To compensate gain loss, Return triode cathode resistor is bypassed with 1uF capacitor.
■Switchable treble bleed capacitor on OD channel gain pot, a.k.a Warren Haynes mod.
■Only 8ohm output jack installed without impedance switch.
■Removed choke from the power supply. With less current draw from power tubes, RC filters should provide enough filtering for B+ (tested in Duncan PSU Designer).
■Changed bias power supply to AX84.com style. This is a slight change, I just wasn’t sure if SLO bias can go as low as 10mA per tube.
■Added switch to choose between 2 and 8 ohm OT taps for NFB loop. 2 ohm means less NFB and it makes amp sound a bit more aggressive.


It's coming to me from a friend in Serbia.

Re: Need more 80's!


Compress the hell out of your tone and don't be afraid to turn the mid on your amp up.
Yes, the ADA MP1 will get you damn close to that Lynch tone. But they're noisy as all hell! I remember buying one in around 1989 or 90 and LOVING the tone. But I just couldn't shut the damn thing up between chords. They may have improved that since (at least I would certainly hope so), but the tone was dead on for Dokken stuff!

Re: Need more 80's!


If you're going for an ADA MP-1 check out the various mods available for it. Couple of them do of course change the sound drastically which wouldn't be the way to go for you, but there are some for lower noise floor etc, guess the 3TM or Mod4 MKII would be suitable. Just google for "ADA MP-1 mod", first result will give you some info. Don't know if they're still in business but you can find quite a few modded ones around used normally.

Re: Need more 80's!


I always went with a SD-1 set with it's volume up 75 - 100% and gain on zero in front of a Marshall 1959SLP. I added reverb & delay by running wet/dry like this:

Later I replaced my Plexi with a 2266 Vintage Modern and dropped the SD-1. All it needed was a touch of reverb & delay.
That had the '80s tone straight in with no boost, here's a clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kbe3mAJGSw

SD-1 is cool, but sucks out the lowend. Look into a dynamic, warm sounding OD pedal like the OCD. That's what I use with my Avenger.

Hahaha George is a character. He's actually handcarving guitars now and selling them I believe.
I love the airplane flanger. I got one about 6 months ago and it hasn't been put of my rig since.. I'm playing old school style metal/punk crossover in a two guitar line up and I find it fantastic for thickening up solos and for separating our tones.

I found a setting that pretty much covers me live which is reasonably EVH-esque, and in the take off mode I have it set for a siren which gets used in one song (and I'm sure is pissing off the rest of the band.. hahahaha)

And of course for 80's, don't forget your Crybaby... and step on it hard!!!
