    More and more we see single purpose items such as digital amp modelers, power blocks and tube preamps/rack mounts replacing "traditional" amplifiers. Many say its in persuit of their own tone. The sound THEY want but just cant get from a "traditional" amp. Mixing and matching...

    Ive seen on the forums a bit about distorsion, something regarding overdriving the pre amp and power output. To get a better distortion its better to run harder the power output right? How does this work? I have a peavey JSX, so would running the power output harder meaning having the master...

    It's been close to three years since I've embarked on a recording project this big... my band ( http://www.theburningsensations.com ) has decided to record a full-length CD, and instead of shelling out $2500+ to go into the local "pro" studio or bumming cheaper time in a friend's studio, we're...

    Hello, I am looking to purchase a new amp+cab in the near future. I play mainly melodic metal (a la Dream Theater) and a lot of classic rock (Zeppelin, AC/DC and the like). I really want an amp that has that nice distortion of John Petrucci, so obvously, I was looking into the Dual Recto...

    Does anyone here have one of these? I have the Studio Tube version with the Control One pedal board. I bought this thing like 10 years ago, and lost the book. I always just used the presets, but now I am wanting to start writing some effects of my own. Can anyone here help me? I downloaded...

    My brother (or a friend) has blown the power valves in my Peavey Mace VT head that he has on long term loan. I obviously need to replace them. I have no idea what kind they are, but I presume they are one of the standard types. Question 1: Is there any particular brand that is better than the...

    Ok I dont know what to exactly call this, but I believe its made so here we go. Its basically a pedal with a tube inside it, but it does nothing more than warm up your tone, so its not really a preamp since there is no tweakable parameters, its just takes your signal runs it thru the tube and...

    What's up guys, I'm selling pretty much my entire live guitar rig. I really don't want to, but I'm no longer in a band and can't really justify keeping it. Prices are listed below, but I'm open to offers EXCEPT the Rectifier (I love it too much and won't be too upset if it doesn't sell ;) )...

    How are Ibanez Amps? I have a Peavy 110 Transtube Envoy. Its ok and I'm satisfied with it but for the price of the Ibanez TB100R and being a 212 would this be a good upgrade? How is the Gain on the TB100R? However I'm not concerened about the gain I have a BOSS GT-8. Is it an overall good amp...

    I recently got a 5150 half stack and I'm not as happy with it as I thought. I'm really thinking about selling it and getting a nice power amp (I was looking at the Carvin DCM150) and used it with my PODxt and 5150 cab. In a few years I would evntually have upgraded the 5150 cab to something that...

    I figure a lot of you guys here are shredders which after 20 some years of playing is what I strive to do well. Not sure I'm there yet but I'm having a blast trying anyways. I have a Mk IV which is pretty cool but I'm thinking of trying another set up. What do you guys play through?

    Hi, Does anyone on this forum use a BBE SONIC MAXIMIZER 428i? They seem to get really good reviews but I really dont understand how they can make a guitar sound so good, or better than what an EQ rack can help produce? Thanks Chris

    Okay guys, i need to know this from people who own either one of these amps. I played a Mark IV today at GAK and on first impressions i liked it. It was a smooth crunch distortion great for legato. My mates hated it and said it wasn't "Metal" enough... So i scooped the mids, put in the classic...

    what is the benefit of using a guitar specific power amp in your rack as opposed to a PA designed power amp. I have a behringer europower 2500 and am wondering if it's just too much power for a single 4 12 cab. I'm looking at the Carvin 100 watt (2/50) tube rackmount. thanks Phil

    Hi guys, I just bought and installed my new pickups today. The EMG-81 (bridge) and the EMG-85 (neck). My guitar is the RG320FM with the Edge Pro II trem. Well the first impression was lets say bad... :( I did not notice any change in the sound of my guitar. I am not using an amplifier right...
