    Hey Ya'll. I know theres tons of threads I could search for clues on the subject, but I'd rather have clear ideas from others on what I should go for. Its finally after X-mas time which is the time I've been planning for months to invest in a Mesa halfstack. I play in a hard rock/punk modern...

    Would a combo be good enough for playing live? I'm really interested in buying the Screamer 50 combo as it's the dogs boll*cks, i can get the perfect really heavy metal tone from it as well as an amazing clean sound. But i'm worried that it may not be enough for live use and band practices...

    Thats a topic that has been beat to death. But the reason I am asking is because out of 12 years of playing I have never ventured much into the world of true head/cab combinations. I am playing through a Line6 AX2 that was upgraded from the original Axsys 212. So I have been a Line6 user for a...

    I want to buy an amp soon because I'm using my stereo right now and I need something for band practices (instead of some 10 watt POS) I was thinking about getting a power amp and cab because I just use a PODxt, but that's too pricey right now. I was thinking about getting a Laney (like a TFX, I...

    Hey guys, i've had my second hand JSX for a while now and I think one of the tubes may be going. I'm thinking this as I can hear a light crackling through the amp which i've only just noticed today, apparently this is the sign of tubes wearing out? The 4 tubes you can see through the grill...

    Just curious to hear your opinions. I know nothing beats tubes, but for those of us without the budget or need for power, what is your favourite alternative? Line6, Behringer, Tubefusion, Transtube, Valvestate, and the others I forget... All variations included: FX units, direct recording...

    I have recently joined a band and all I have in the way of amps is my little Fender combo practice amp, whick obviously won't cut it for gigging. I would apreciate recommendations. My budget is around $700, and I can maybe push it a little higher, but not much, so try to consider that the...

    Are there any brands that really stand out as being better than the others. I've heard good things about JJ's and Svetlana are good. I've not heard anything good about Sovtec. A friend of mine uses Mesa tubes which are more expensive than the ones above and they are just Sovtek's (Preamp) and a...

    I've heard good things about Ruby and JJ tubes. Anyone here use them. I need to replace tubes in a 5150II and want the least amount of noise without loseing a lot of gain.
