    I want an all-tube practice amp with the specs in the title, think you guys could make help me out? I tried the Laney LC15, wasn't impressed, not sure about the Laney VC15 though. Either way, I'm looking for more of an American sound, not a fan of British crunch tones. How does their Lionheart...

    When i turn the unit on the volume is cut drastically and is heavily compressed. Is this how its supposed to work? I tried to compensate by using a preset without any delay on it, but the tone of my amp is gone and replaced with this compressed turd sounding thing i'm going through the effects...

    Ibanez JPM P4 in fresh M100 case: $875 shipped in continental US. Near mint condition. Excellent guitar all around. Slight scuffing on back by the trem spring cover. Slight "shiny-ness" on the front where your pick hand pinky likes to hang out. Hardware is dead mint, no excuses. Tone is...

    In what was the "spontaneous purchase of the century", I picked up a used Rivera Knucklehead Reverb combo (55watt, EL34's, Celestion G12-75) on sale at Guitar Center today. I'd been looking for a versatile combo that would complement my Mark IV well, and I think this Rivera does the trick. It...

    does anyone have know if peavey plans to make a smaller combo version of this amp. From what Ive seen, heard and read about, it sounds like the amp for me, but I dont want a stack. They're far too large and loud for my situation. A 50W combo version would be prime.

    I need a good amp to run through my boogie 2x12 at home. It doesn't have to be loud, but I would like built in effects. I was thinking of either a Line 6 or a VETA or something. Any ideas? Not looking for a combo but a head. I am not going to use this for live use. Thanks, -Chris

    So.. JCM800 JCM900 Peavey 5150 MKII Ive tested all these Amps and i really dont know wich one i should take. The Peavey is a little bit too expensive, but the sound is great. I thought about buy a JCM800 or JCM900 @ebay. My Style is Black/Death Metal: Cannibal Corpse, Morbid Angel, Ulver etc...

    Hello there! Lately I've taken an unhealthy interest in these guitars. Since they don't exactly crowd the Swedish market, I'm kinda curious about your experiences with them. All i know is that they differ in the woods department. The question is simply: have you A/B tested the Deluxe and the...

    Hello everyone! Since people ask here the same question on a regular basis, "What amp should I buy?" or "Any amp suggestions?" or one of its infinite variants, I though it might be neat to compile a "Jemsite guide to amps" sort of a thing. I scribbled down quickly something off my memory, feel...

    A guitar shop in my area has a rivera s120 2 12 amp that I really want to try, the guy on the phone told me its the most versatile tube amp Ill ever play. "Goes from fender to mesa in a push of a button". Built in chorus and reverb and power cut switches. Also comes with a 6 button foot switch...

    Hey guys. I'm currently denying myself various worldy pleasures in order to save enough money to order a custom made seven string. I think I have an idea of what woods I want to use, but I'm not entirely sure. I've been leaning toward limba (korina) for the body wood, as I have heard that it is...

    Holy damn does this thing weigh a lot. Now I have to go shopping for a 4 space rack and a cabinet, but first I have a couple of questions about hooking the thing up. Why does it use two mono outputs instead of a single stereo output? This is my first stereo guitar amp, so I don't know if this...

    So, this weekend, after everything going wrong for a week I walked into the second hand gear shop. Still there, maybe try it again. Still beat up, but may as well. So dragged it out of it's dusty corner, and for some bizarre reason the gain channel worked, it hadn't last time, so I'd left it...

    I use the amp gain for bluesy sounds, and the DS1 + amp for good rock distortions, i´m looking for a good TS 808 for SRV´s sounds but the missing sound is a hard, heavy and full of harmonics distortion with lots of gain (you know, something like a good sounding metal zone). I´m looking for tube...
