    So I picked up one of these amp modelers recently on the bay. It does exactly what I expected it to do (I bought it to practice in my apartment and also to be able to record stuff straight to my computer so that I could write parts easier), however after fixing my combo amp I really dont need...

    I just bought a VHT Deliverance 120 (WOOHOO!!) I was getting really tired of dragging my 412 everywhere so I am also going to get another cab. I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what speakers would go well with this amp, and why you think so. Thanks

    one thing i've always wondered was the purpose of distortion/overdrive pedals for high gain tube amps. back in the day, these pedals were a necessity because amps did not have as much preamp gain. but nowadays, most high gain amps have ample gain. take for example the jsx. this amp's...

    After ooing and aweing over the Tourmaster I come to find out about the Rebel which seems to only have been mentioned here a couple of times. I found a vid that demonstrates the Rebel and it looks pretty damn cool to me. I plan on buying BOTH, but I am not sure which one will make it to my home...

    Hi all - I need some amp advice. I currently have a vox ad15 and after 4 years with it, it's time for a change. Some background, i play only at home in an apt, looking for nice cleans and a 80's metal distorted tone. I don't like any of the other modelers out there. Looking at the following...

    Alright ive been debating over the Supersonic and F-50 for the last couple of weeks on other forums and such and still don't know which one to get....but now i have heard some clips of the JSX and really like that also just making things harder... It all started when i heard the Supersonic at...

    Hi, I received my second guitar this week since the old one was a second hand strat copy, I thought it was time for a step up. When I first got it I was tuning it at the head stock and snapped the top string(I was slightly embaressed when he asked me if I knew you dont tune it there), there...

    Hi guys, for Christmas I got myself a Lexicon Lambda and a Audix i5 mic. I use it to mic my guitar cab but It seems that I get very low volume levels through my Lexicon and the tone doesn't sound perfectly right. I was wondering if I could possibly use this...

    Alright, I've posted 2 threads regarding this similar problem, but I tend to acquire new information that changes things a little, so let me first start by telling you the problem I have. I have a Mesa Boogie Mark IV A, which I love. My only complaint, is that in my experience, I seem to be...

    Is he playing straight into a Lonestar? This is the tone I hear in my head. Amazing IMO. What can I do with that amp and an RG and a side note how does that compare to a Legacy gain wise?

    I'm confused about what the deal is with overdrive. Not the kind you get from pedals but the kind you get when you roll up the gain. Can both Tubes and Solid State amps get overdrive when given lots of gain? Can I get a tube overdrive sound from a tube preamp (made for mics but it has an...

    Noob question time. I will probably want to buy my first tube amp soon. I am very intrigued with the Peavey Classic 30, and especially after reading ts0511's comments recently. My question is what does an expensive larger amp like a JSX (head or combo) give you that the Classic 30 doesn't...

    Ok, maybe its not that serious, but since i've had it it does his thing where the gain control for the ultra channel will suddenly become disabled and the light will dim. When this happens the gain is being controlled by the crunch gain knob for both channels 2 and 3, but when its working, its...

    What do you guys recommend for the volume and tone pot? Based on the Ibanez RG schematics, they come with stock linear taper 500Kohm volume pots and audio/log taper 500Kohm tone pots. Any difference using the audio taper pot for the volume control?

    I'm going to try and make this as brief as possible! lol My amp is a Mesa Boogie Mark IV, and I love it, however, the Rhythm tone has left me wanting more. My leads are nice, smooth and liquidy, just like I want, but without trading my nice lead sound for a Rhythm sound, I'm left with a Rhythm...

    I have gone through so much gear this year it isn't even funny.. I got a 6505+ and a marshall 1960A not even 2 months ago---- I ran my pod into the back of the amp today and used the peavey as a tube power amp, and I was surprised of the tone.. I am almost getting sick of the tone chase--- for...

    How do they compare? I haven't spent enough time with the JSX to be able to tell. I want to have two amps eventually to run stereo, preferably the same amps. The XXX is a sweet amp, but from what I read the 3 channels are more diverse in the JSX and the eq is different. If the JSX is more to my...
