    Sorry for starting yet another thread about pickup choice. But after reading for days on various forums and review-sites, I still can't make up my mind. In the neck there's definately going to be an Air Norton. For the bridge I'm thinking about : Norton (No soundclips to be found. Besides...

    Hi! I just got a Carvin Legacy VL100 and it really really rocks! It's the best tube amp i have tried yet and much better sounding (for my style) than my previous Dual Rectifier. So i really love this amp. I have a question though... Is it normal that when you turn up the reverb it becomes very...

    Just some ideas on connecting a GT8 to your tube rig. The differant color lines represent differant signal paths. Hope it makes sense. It's kinda crude.

    Ok here we go, I bought this amp on Sept 12th and have proof in the pictures. Since then alot has been done. Amp is in pristine condition not a mark anywhere. I just can not take full benefit of a tube amp at this time. Its way to much for me in the bedroom. So I will be moving back to solid...

    Ok I bought this Carvin MTS3212 about a month or so ago.. Since then my distortion channel has turned to complete crap, its muddy and sound absolutly terrible. Now I have noticed that the stock tubes are all over the place there as follows V1 Groove Tubes 12AX7C V2 Groove Tubes 12AX7C V3...

    So I just have a quick question... My band and I are playing a show tomorrow at 10 and I still have the Legacy head. Two tubes are blown (because I usually play on the 50W switch, however it will only sound when I flip it to the 100W switch). I was wondering if I could play on the 100W switch...

    Yep, I hear Marshall will be launching a new line of "Vintage/Modern" amps. I also have been told Oct 26th is the launch date, although that is not confirmed. I'm a huge Marshall fan and look forward to checking it out! -jemaholic

    Hey guys looking for a new practice amp soon and would like to see what you guys like out there. Looking for 15 to 25 amps with reverb. Effects added would be ok too so if you have any suggestions please list them so I can make some final decisions. Amp will be used primarily for a little of...

    Im in a search for my perfect amp. My fav tones are sort of a mix between Satch's (most notably on the "Is there love in space?" album) and a bit of Gilbert's shrederiffic edge (most notably on the songs "Superheroes" and "Technical Difficulties", of course). Im stuck between some Laney (GH50L...

    Hi, Just wondering where you guys ended up with your Legacy's experiences. Any luck getting the lead tone you want ? If so, what did you do ? I'm currently looking at a very decent priced Legacy combo, but from all I read about it, it looks like such a misterious amp. Best is to hear it...

    Well, I know it is possible, but is it do-able for an average Joe? There are so many schematics online, Engls, Mesas, Bogners, but I was thinking about dipping my toes into a Soldano SLO100 clone. I do have a little knowledgde of electrical stuff, but my buddy is a real whiz at it. He repairs...

    I noticed that my old Fender tube amp started sounding different. It seems to have less power and breaks up much easier. So I just had a look at the tubes and I notice that one 6L6 is lighting up but is cool to the touch, the other 6L6 is very bright and very hot to the touch. Would this be...

    well i got my mesa v-twin! WOOT!! I'm gonna toy with it a bit before i review! but I'm looking for a new combo amp! I'm going to invest in a rectifier recording preamp quite soon but for now I just want something with some nice clean tones,doesn't have to be hugely versatile or anything as...

    OK, just got done giving the new Jem a run, and let me tell you, this combo freakin' rips like crazy. The X2N reminds me a lot of the output of a EMG but with much more clarity, and the Tone Zone, well, what can I say, JimmyJ and Buddroyce was right, its nuts in the neck, it shreds like a beast...
