    I'm looking for a good, solid, reliable, and most importantly, both good-sounding and versatile amp, and I've narrowed it down to these two. Anyone have any experience with these, or have any other suggestions? These amps will mainly be used for jazz (hence the solid state) but I need tube...

    If this is in the wrong section please move it. So here is a thought I've been having... I really like buying amps, taking them home and tweaking/pushing them. It's just not the same at the store. Everyone blasting away with drop D power chords on rectos... just drives me crazy. Is it wrong...

    Greetings, all! I'm new to the forum here and to Ibanez in general, as I just bought an early RG550. Very cool and I'm looking forward to further exploring the Ibanez line. Right now I'm very interested in JEMs and the JPM models. However, I'm having trouble finding information on the JPMs...

    I want a 1x12 combo for practice, I play mostly prog metal so it has to be aggressive but have good single note tone. I just bought a Randall RG75G3. It does speed riff good but the solo tone is harsh. I'm going to work with it some but I'm not impressed so far. I had two Randall heads and I...

    up until a month ago, i was a valve virgin. i bought a valveking, hated the sound, bought new speakers celestion v30's) and it didnt do much. I ve read everywhere about the 'cranked valve tone' so earlier today i tried and it was pretty bad actually. i cant see what this is about. to me the...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    Alright guys. I recently got a RG560 and I wanna put new pickups in it. Now I usually play heavy stuff, but lately I am trying to diversify. The only famous player's guitar tone I absolutely love is Joe Satriani's. So naturally I was looking at the Mo'Joe for the bridge, but is it able to get...

    Just curious, which type of amp tube (amp that is based around that particular tube ex: dual rectifier- 6l6) works best for an RG/JEM, and does this differ on humbucker positions and split coil positions?

    Why is it that everyone is always stomping on the Quality of Crate amps...... Have they spent time with one in the last 10 yrs???? Do they realize that for 7 yrs running Crate was the most sold amp in the World....not USA "WORLD". I just don't get it............every model they make isn't GREAT...

    I'm confused about what the deal is with overdrive. Not the kind you get from pedals but the kind you get when you roll up the gain. Can both Tubes and Solid State amps get overdrive when given lots of gain? Can I get a tube overdrive sound from a tube preamp (made for mics but it has an...

    I recently joined a band (were just beginners really), and my 25w practice amp, that Ive been using at home, is obviously not up to it, the other guitarists 100w marshall is drowning me right out. Can anyone recommend a decent amp, that will give a good rock/metal tone (lots of gain for those...

    I just went to the shop with the intention of playinga Laney GH50L, however they didnt have any so I got the usual salesman stuff like "what sound do you want" etc, then the other chestnut... "ive got just the amp for you" - said with a wink of course ;) he then stopped in front of a line 6 -...

    Hey, I need you guys to help me choose an all valve head. Over the years, I've owned various hybrid and solid state amps, but I'm finally ready to make that all-valve jump. I'm a huge fun of old school Marshall tones - like Eddie Van Halen's "Brown Sound", and James Hetfield's rhythm tone on...

    Hey guys I've been thinking of getting the G9 so I could use it to record direct into my laptop (with the free cubase software) and to use it to plug into PA's etc for when I need to travel about for rehearsals in the near future. But how different is the G7 to the G9? Would I be better off...

    Having gone through (bedroom amps we're talking here): Marshall mini-stack Vox Valvetronix Line 6 Spider's (15w & 30w) I'm still trying to find something I'm truly happy with at bedroom levels. The Marshall has a really nice clean sound, not sparkling like I'd want, but still a nice clean...

    Hello, I have a well maintained Mesa 20 : 20 2 channel power amp. It's in great shape, recently retubed with JJ Electronic Tubes, and I must say the loudest 2 watt amp I've ever heard. Louder than most solid state amps rated higher. Anyway, I found a sick deal on a 2:90 power amp, and to help...

    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...
