    Hi guys! Question of the week: can I plug an Engl Fireball head into a Valveking 112 combo? Is there a way of hooking the speaker up to the Fireball's output? I've never had a separate head / amp + cab configuration so I don't know how they plug into each other. Please clarify! Thanks :)

    I have a fender hot rod deluxe combo amp that I want to turn into a head to use with my port city music 2x12 cabinet. My issue is that the cabinet is a 4 ohm enclosure(two 8 ohm speakers wired in parallel.) And the amp has an 8 ohm output. According to page 7 of the manual...

    Do you use the same amps for gigs, practicing and recording or do you have different amps for different purposes. How about one tube amp for all those different objects. If you use your 50 or 100 Watt amp at home how do you handle that? Would you say that is overkill if one is mainly playing at...

    I have a Carvin SX200 and I'm looking to put different speakers in it... They sound good on the clean channel, but when I play distortion, it makes a crackling sound... any one have a good suggestion? Thanks, Shane

    Hi guys I just bought a Marshall DSL 50w and custom JCM 900 cab. The cab contains 2 vintage 30's and 2 G12H30's wired in an X pattern at 16 ohms. My question is do you guys think the cab being wired in 16 ohms is a good thing or bad for a 50w head. Would I have more head room if the cab...

    Mesa rectoverb problems I resently bought a Mesa Rect-o-verb 50 head from a local retailer (I live in Norway). I took my new head home and tried it out with a celestion vintage 30 loaded 4x12 1960. There was no plastic on the tubes of the recto head. I started playing, and it gave me mesa...

    What tube amps out there have low power ratings? I've got a Mesa Studio .22+. 22 watts, two channels. I know Laney makes a 15 watt single channel amp. Torres Engineering has some 8 watt amps. Not a topic I hear a lot about... I don't really understand buying 50 and 100 watt amps-- seems...

    I bought a Mesa Boogie 20/20 a few months ago and so far I've been using only one of the channels through the speaker of my Marshall combo. I really wanted to get a 2x12 to unleash it's stereo power but I don't have the room (or cash) rigth now. I have the chance of getting a 1x12 Mesa cab for...

    Ok, so I finally have the opportunity to have a pair of custom 2x12 cabs built. Now I'm trying to decide on the correction ohmages on the speakers I want to buy. I need help...I think. I plan to have each cab wired for both mono and stereo operation so that I can run either one cab in stereo...

    Fender Roc-Pro 1000 Head. Hybrid amp (has tube in the pre). 2 Channels with switchable gain character. Channel 1 (clean) and Channel 2 yellow are really good. Switching to the red channel 2 via the provided 3 button footswitch gives you a volume boost for solos. Amp is like new (9.5 condition)...

    I am just a bedroom player, but own my own house so can crank when I want. I use an ADA MP1 and I just got a Mesa 20/20 so am now about to buy a cabinet. Would you go with the 2x12 8 OHM or the 4x12 16 OHM cabinet? Which would sound "better" plugged into the 8 OHM output of the Mesa at the same...

    I had the chance to play the Spider II today and the thing just screamed. I loved the lead tone I got out of it, and the clean tone was good, but lacked just a little aroma. I know a lot of people here judge tone from Vai and Satch, but this Spider II really kicked booty. I love the...
