    Hi all, hope all is well. Quite self explanatory really, which do you prefer and why in the Peavey 6505+ and the Triple XXX? They are both the same price on Peavey's site. Regards Jonny

    Alright folks. It was between either Engl and Mesa, and I've decided on Mesa because of the lead tone (I'm a lead player). I don't think anything can beat a Boogie for lead tone =) Now, the problem is that there are so many options that I have no friggin' clue as to what to get. My options are...

    This amp looks soo awesome. I've always had a thing for VHT's if I could afford it and if it was practical I'd definatley have an Ultra-lead Pitbull it's probly my favorite amp that I ever played through. I've been really interested in the Sig X because it's a little bit cheaper and you can...

    A lot of people like to slag off on this amp for leads, but, well... Dialed in right (and full disclosure here, the EQ is VERY unintuitive), they sound absolutely great for lead. I'll post my settings up in a day or two so you don't come into this with any preconceptions, but this is my PWH...

    I'm not a huge LB fan. I have the greatest hits CD from Walmart, so it's edited for language. I really like what Wes plays. I don't know if he's got shredability or not. But he's got amazing tone and plays all the right parts. But, the reason for this post is. I wanted to point out his...

    Are there many people here playing Soldano's? I just got through playing my Jem7vwh into my SLO100,,,,,,,and I just have to say,,,,what an amp company Soldano is. The sound this head puts out,,,,it leaves me speechless every time I plug in. And the build quality on this thing....wow! I was...

    OK, My first guitar gene splicing experiment in preparation for my ultimate R540 Radius experiment... Basswood body RG550/570 of '87 or so vintage. It is ambiguous because it has a rosewood wizard neck with dot inlays, but doesn't seem to match any 570 I ever saw or heard of, so I think it's a...

    I've always used D'addario 9-42 (EXL 120) on my jems and also my other Ibanez guitar, but I find that something is wrong... I have a Jackson Kelly that I use 9-42 on, but the riffs sound and feel much, much better, and why this is, I don't know because it's the same neck scale (25.5). For some...

    Hi. What would be better for me? Mesa F50 combo or Marshall Mode 4 head with a Vintage 30 equipped cab?? The marshall head is 575 US with shipping and is mint. The Mesa is used and is 650 US+ shipping. I play modern rock and Modern "Nu" Metal. I use an Ibanez RGA 121 Prestige. Can someone please...

    But somethings popped into my head. At the moment im playing through a Marshall AVT150 head and the 1979 4 x 12 cab. If i was to replace the head with, lets say a JSX or a Dual Recto, could i still use the same cab or would that need replacing too? It sounds stupid, but i've never really...

    Hey guys. For the past few months, i've been searching for a new amp to upgrade from my MG10cd (i don't need to say that it's bad). I've played a bunch of amps, and apparently have progressed extremely well for being self taught for 8 months, and taking lesson for the past 2. So, seeing as how i...

    Hi, I'm new here, after waiting several months for the arrival of My J Custom directly from JAPAN, all I can say is that this guitar is "masterfully crafted for unparalleled sound, maximum playability and exquisite beauty" It's an Ibanez JC RG8670-DR Here you go mates It's SWEET, It's...

    I'm going to start saving up for a hi-gain all tube half stack and I wanted to know if any of you use these certain ones. A Diezel VH4, ENGL Savage 120, and a Mesa Triple Recto. I'm currently in a bind and don't know which one is best for me. Money isn't a problem, I just want to make sure I get...

    Hi. Im not another one "metalheads" who want the highest output pickup so they could "R0ck y0Ur SoXXorz", i just want to know what the highest output pickups are if i were to play that genre of music. thanks

    Here are the settings from the man himself. I haven't tried them on my combo yet (for lack of time because of school) but I'm looking forward to it. If anyone who owns a JSX reads this and have some time to spare, try these settings out and record a few satch licks so everyone who owns a JSX...

    so my set up now consists of a mesa dual recto head and matching recto 4x12 cab. my friend owns a genz-benz gflex 2x12 with a marshall jcm 900 and im thinking of switching my 4x12 to the g-b 2x12. the mesa sounds good, but i dont like the weight and lack of durability of the tolex on it.(ive...

    Ok, I got a new pack of GHS boomers custom light. 9-46. like hybrid Slinkies. And when i put them on, my Low E is loose?? and it wobbles a little, which makes it sound like fret buzz for each note on that string. do they make 47's?? or is there a way to tighten the low with keeping the same...

    what is the actual difference between a dual recto and a triple recto? and also, a single recto? is it in the sound of the amp, or just the power? i read about meshuggah using dual rectos in the beginning, and i found it a little weird that they didn´t use triples, like KoRn did (they use the...
