    Item Location: La Grande, Oregon 97850 **** ID (for reference): deadringerswhispers For sale, Peavey Classic 50/50 tube poweramp. The amp works and sounds great and has plenty of tube life left in it. It has some rack rash from being racked. The only other issue I know of is that the light...

    Hey folks, I have a rig that I currently use and LOVE (pod xt + atomic reactor amp), and I was thinking of getting another setup (perhaps going all-tube), since I split my time between college (in a diff state) and my home. My max cost for this is about 1300-1400. I play primarily instrumental...

    How do they sound at low volumes? As I don't gig anymore or in the near future but was some good tones I am thinking bout getting one. I have always owned combos btw. Most of my playing takes place after the ankle bitters are asleep and I can't do loud. If the sound/tone comes from preamp...

    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...

    I've agreed to join this guy's live band, and if he finds the remaining musicians he needs, I'll need a head (as most bands are ok with you borrowing cabs, but not heads). I imagine I probably won't be able to stretch further than about £250 (about $500). I'm mainly thinking of Line 6 Spider III...

    I'm on a roll with new posts, so humor an old man........ I just had some work done to my main Marshall head: it's a 1990 JCM900 Dual-Reverb 4500 model and I've always liked them over the older 800's because of TWO real channels ( and of course, verb). I was telling Dankynugs recently that I...

    No, this is not a sexual question. I'm just wondering why some people use rackmounted heads (i.e. Mesa Stereo 20/20) instead of a regular head (i.e. Mesa Triple Rectifier).

    So as I've posted in the classifieds section in search of a tube amp head, my Line 6 75W head just isn't cutting it for me and the rest of the band tonewise. So I'm desperately calling out for suggestions on what tube amp to get that's under $500, but fairly decent. Reliability is one of the...

    I need a list of 4-channel amp heads to check out. I'm talking about solid state or tube heads, not digital modelling (i.e. Line 6 or Vox Valvetronix stuff). I'm talking about independent channels with their own set of controls (volume, gain, bass, mid, high, presence, etc). So far, here's...

    Hey guys... I need your help. I'm a metal player. I play Pantera, Metallica, Zakk Wylde stuff, Anthrax and stuff by Guns N' Roses and Steve Vai, Satch etc... I need lots of distortion, and I know that the Mesa Boogie Dual Recto is the perfect choice for me. Or an ENGL, but I prefer the Mesa...

    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...

    Item for sale: TubeWorks MosValve MV-962 Power Amp Description & Condition: Excellent, works great. Front and back are super clean, not even any noticeable rack marks. Great sounding for a solid state power amp, uses mosfets for their tube like quality, not much more to add, a killer...

    So just a simple question because I have scoured the net looking. Can someone tell me if a 300w solid state on lets say volume level 5 can put out the same amount of sound as a 100w tube amp on 5 also. Or do the tubes actually push more power making them louder at lower wattages? Thanks Stephen

    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...

    Dear guys, Recently, I have test my POD XTLive through Fender Roc Pro. Amp are Head Cabinet amp. The problem is when I connecting the cable from XTL to Roc Pro’s input, eventhough I had turned off the low and high knob and turned the mid full (as suggested on POD manual guide), the sound...

    I used to own a crate head that I used for practicing and teaching. I sold it cause it kinda sucked and got a line6 spider 2 head. Ive messed with the spider for a few hours and its even worse than the crate!!! I really need a head that sounds great (lots of smooth gain) some effects would be...
