    After purchasing an Ibanez SV5470F I've come to the conclusion that a new amp is in order. Playing mainly Death Metal. Recommendations/reviews would be appreciated. Thanks

    I'm not a huge LB fan. I have the greatest hits CD from Walmart, so it's edited for language. I really like what Wes plays. I don't know if he's got shredability or not. But he's got amazing tone and plays all the right parts. But, the reason for this post is. I wanted to point out his...

    Are there many people here playing Soldano's? I just got through playing my Jem7vwh into my SLO100,,,,,,,and I just have to say,,,,what an amp company Soldano is. The sound this head puts out,,,,it leaves me speechless every time I plug in. And the build quality on this thing....wow! I was...

    I don't know man. Maybe I have no taste in guitars. People have been telling me there's nothing like an American made Fender or Gibson. Don't know man. Owned an American Fender, and played MANY Les Pauls and flying V types. I went to this dude's house to pick up my Ghostrider, and he had...

    Hi. What would be better for me? Mesa F50 combo or Marshall Mode 4 head with a Vintage 30 equipped cab?? The marshall head is 575 US with shipping and is mint. The Mesa is used and is 650 US+ shipping. I play modern rock and Modern "Nu" Metal. I use an Ibanez RGA 121 Prestige. Can someone please...

    I'm going to start saving up for a hi-gain all tube half stack and I wanted to know if any of you use these certain ones. A Diezel VH4, ENGL Savage 120, and a Mesa Triple Recto. I'm currently in a bind and don't know which one is best for me. Money isn't a problem, I just want to make sure I get...

    Relatively new member. Play in a 80's metal cover band. The other guitar player uses a GNX3000 (thru a tube amp) and I tend to go relatively straight through one of my 800's or a 900 (depending on mood.) I really think I get a better sound. Does anybody regularly gig with the Multi-FX units and...

    what is the actual difference between a dual recto and a triple recto? and also, a single recto? is it in the sound of the amp, or just the power? i read about meshuggah using dual rectos in the beginning, and i found it a little weird that they didn´t use triples, like KoRn did (they use the...

    how do you turn on a tube amp correctly? do you put the standby switch to standby, turn the power to on, wait bout 1min then flick the standby switch to on? or do you turn the power switch to on, leave the standby switch on standby for 1min then flick the standby switch on? i just brought a...

    So I just managed to find a Marshall 1960 4x12 slant cab [black tolex, silver grille (or maybe a grey one judging by the pictures, possibly black..???)]. ANYWAYS, just wondering if it's a good buy. It's almost brand new with the exception of small tolex rips on the bottom and the back of the...

    If I get a Mesa head, I'm wondering whether to use a Mesa cab as well. Mesas are majorly exensive, and I'm wondering whether they rally are worth all they are said to be? I'm thinking perhaps of Marshall instead, at only £350 ish, as opposed to £800+

    For the tone in my head the only thing fullfilling so far is the Mesa Boogie Recto-verb. My question is the local Guitar Center has it for $1499 which is a tad bit higher than my budget. In about 3 months I will have around $1500-2000 but I got around $600 of it already spoken for. Now does...

    1. ive been searching for this answer for awile and cant find it though i did see it hinted as true somewhere else. Say i hook up a 50 watt power amp to the slave on my dual recto, will the head end up putting out 50 more watts(become a triple recto) 2. one of my bigest fears for playing live...

    Okay, once I get enough money I'm thinking of getting a dual rectifier. I only play in my room and do recording. I use a Line6 Flextone III and rarely go above 90 dB (9:00 on the master knob). How loud exactly is a dual rectifier? I want to keep my ears/my family's ears/my walls intact, so I...

    I recently got a JEM7VWH and I've discovered that some pinch harmonics on the third string, are hard to get and fade out quickly. When I get a pinch harmonic on the 9th or 14th fret of the G string and use vibrato, the harmonic fades away. Is this just how EVOs are?, because I have EMG-HZ...

    A few years ago I decided to give multi effects units a try. I bought a Digitech RP2000 when they first came out and I have to say I liked it for a year or two since I was young and didn't know much but now I hate the thing. All the amp models sound so fake and digital and the effects aren't...
