    Going on a gas spree tonight. Probably going to come home with a new amp. If you can guess what I purchase before I get back online tonight, I'll mail you a used Boss Metal Zone. One guess per person!

    A couple of people have told me i should put a sonic stomp into my rig. Why? What is it, does anyone use on? I want something that will maybe round off my lead tone alittle and make it more bubbly and less gainy but still have a lot of harmonics. Will this do that?

  5. Pickups & wiring
    I have a Paf Pro in the neck and a Steve's Special in the bridge. The Steve's Special seems a bit thin with highs boosted a little much and the mids scooped. Can anyone recommend a different bridge pickup that would be a good with match the Paf Pro in the neck (love that pu!)?

    Hey folks, I have a rig that I currently use and LOVE (pod xt + atomic reactor amp), and I was thinking of getting another setup (perhaps going all-tube), since I split my time between college (in a diff state) and my home. My max cost for this is about 1300-1400. I play primarily instrumental...

    Hi guys, I have been playing guitar for a while, and I am looking for a new amp (preferably tube amp) that sounds good. For my current setup, I use the Ibanez RG 2550 Prestige guitar with stock pups, Digitech RP200 and BOSS MT-2 pedals. I sometimes use my Mexican-made Fender Stratocaster. So...

    I just flew home and had a brand new Caparison Horus waiting for me. It was the first time I had ever seen one in person, much less actually played one. I liked it so much that I bought another one. I just haven't ever played a guitar that felt like this Caparison before. The action was set a...

    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 again everyone I am at this stage in my life where I can sorta start enjoying paying for things without having to borrow money etc and one of those has always been my passion for music and guitar playing. Over the past 2 years I have gone through a few different amps and guitars and have yet...

    Ok, this will be my first amp purchase. i already have a 10 watt squire (lol) and a 50 watt marshall acoustic, which i run my zoom effects pedal through. Sounds like ass. Im wanting to get a Vai type sound (like that hasnt been asked before), extremely high harmonics, nice cleans, and heavy...

    After doing some research on the net and playing several amps i wanted to share my experience and give you some more or less useful links if you are looking for a new amp. Maybe this helps you a little bit to make up your mind. In the time i looked for the "right amp" for me i stumbled across...

    Hei guys, its me again with this slightly provocative statement. How reasonable is it to lets say invest 3000 Euro in a boutique amp for an average guitar player. There is that expression saying "its all in the fingers" which ultimately isn`t quite correct because the fingers just do what your...

    Hi, Just wondering where you guys ended up with your Legacy's experiences. Any luck getting the lead tone you want ? If so, what did you do ? I'm currently looking at a very decent priced Legacy combo, but from all I read about it, it looks like such a misterious amp. Best is to hear it...
  20. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    Hi, I'm looking for a new amp, but I'm frustrated about the fact that a lot off good sounding higher pricerange amps lack a switch to put the power amp in a lower power output mode. (I have my eye on a Hughes & Kettner Switchblade 100watt top/combo or JSX. the jsx combo has a half power switch...
