    I really like this amp, but it's total overkill for what I'm doing, so it's time for it to move along. This thing sounds amazing, from glassy cleans to medium gain bluesy grit to rip your face off high gain tones. This includes a flight case. Tubed with JJ 6L6 power tubes and ENGL preamp tubes...

    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...

    I'm not playing out and this is REALLY overkill for my current needs and there's other stuff I want to buy, so it's time for me to sell my ENGL SE E670. This is the flagship of the ENGL line it sounds amazing, from glassy cleans to medium gain bluesy grit to rip your face off high gain tones...

    What do you guys figure is the best amp/rig for $1000 or under? I'm currently using a Pod XT with an Atomic Reactor amp, and it's pretty sweet, but it never hurts to hear what else is out there. Note: I play metal/hard rock, so keep that in mind when you make any recommendations please...

    Howdy fellow Jemsiters :) Lately i've been unhappy with the tone in 3 of my guitars, so i'm going to do a pickup swap, and I was interested to hear what other people think about my pickup choices. I have a Charvel Fusion Custom, which is 24.75 scale with basswood body, floyd bridge and bolt on...

  10. Pickups & wiring
    these are closely compared to the passive JB/Jazz set (which is my goto set for mahogany and mahogany/maple topped guitars) on the Seymour site. anyone try these? they are $55 more than a JB/Jazz set so i'm wondering if they are worth the extra dough. they would be going in a mahogany set neck...

    I have an RGT320Q and Im thinking of replacing the stock Dimarzio IBZs. Ive read that the Tone Zone/Air Norton combo seems popular, but Ive had some negative feedback about the TZ. Im thinking Evo2/Air Norton. Im looking for a diverse sound, good heavy hard rock tone (Van Halen I, Petrucci)...
  12. Pickups & wiring
    i have no problem with the tone coming out of the stock pickups(dimarzio/ibz) on my rg2570 but nowadays it comes a little muddy to my ears.I don't know maybe i'm getting bored.I want a bridge pickup that can give me real distortion without any muddy sound and it must have rich harmonics and...

    Peavey Rock Master tube guitar preamp. Three channels, four 12AX7 tubes, eight stages of gain and input/output buffering. Clean, Crunch, and Ultra channels. Five FX loops for tons of flexibility in patching your FX on single channels or multiple channels. This preamp was the original design...

    Hey all, just a question about this pedal. I can't really afford to buy myself a tube amp as I've got a wedding to save up for but I really want some tube distortion. I currently have a Kustom KGA65 which is a solid state amp with a 12 inch Celestion speaker. Would the Silver Dragon help gain me...

    O.k so here's the deal, I've borrowed my freinds Line 6 Toneport and Line 6 Pod XT to try out with my IMac, I've spent most of today trying to get some 'convincing tones' out of them but the high gain distortions are absolutley awful! Some of the clean sounds are actually quite good but when I...

    Hey guys, I need some advice on preamps. I have decided to go rack, because I need midi control. It would be impossible to use my setup live and switch channels efficiently. For my distorted sounds, I run a boost pedal over my gain channel, and for my clean sounds, I use a compressor and an...

    Ive spent years searching for this guitar until a couple of years ago I finally found 1 of the 3 that were imported to Argentina in 1993. I searched the net countless times searching for pics of this guitar, and most of the times the only thing I could find were WTB adds. In the last 5 years...

    Well, I got my 77FP, 2003, and it is absolutely mint. Could not be happier. I am a really big Charvel fan, but you just cannot argue with the playability of these Jems....Awesome guitars. Shawn in Tampa
