    Mint Condition. Radial Engineering Tonebone Classic Distortion. Comes in original packaging and includes power supply. No issues and completely indistinguishable from brand new, save for the velcro on the bottom. All manuals included, not that you need one. This is a tube driven pedal and...

    I'm looking for a 1x12 combo for mostly home use and maybe band practice. My live rig is a F30 with 2x12 cab. I want good cleans and a decent Satch type rock tone that's not sterile. I've tried the new Randall G3 series, sucks, no lead tone worth anything. If I can't find a good Solid State...

    I've found one of these for sale for the equivalent of $850 in good condition. Is it worth it at this price? Does anyone have any info on this guitar? I can't seem to find any online, other than the fact that it was a limited run instrument. Anyone own one and have any thoughts on them? Are...

    Ok, so this is just a wild idea, so I don't want anyone bashing me if this idea is stupid. :D But me and my buddy have been talking about the future of tube amps and solid state getting better, etc. And since I'm really into jazz right now, I have come to love solid state cleans, namely the...

    Ok guys, Ive been searching frantically over the past 2 weeks, for a new rig setup, ever since a show afew weeks ago where I couldnt bring my whole rig (due to transportation issues) and had to mix and match with other amps, and It was just horrrrible. I ended up playing half the show thru a...

    Hi all, I'm on a late 80's, early 90's, preamp quest. I wanted to see if anyone here has any experience with the ART SGX 2000 or 2000 Express? What's it like? Got any good tones coming out of it? I've read some Harmony Central reviews on it and everyone seems to like it. Some have said that...

    Hi all, Recently I've been checking out the old Digitech 2101 tube preamps on the bay and have been considering getting one. I did a search on here and didn't find quite what I'm looking for. I guess Digitech produced two different models of the 2101. One is a limited edition and has a shiney...

    So my co-guitarist insists that i pull out 2 tubes and switch it to the 50watt setting in order to drive the tubes harder to produce a different tone (that he likes). He wont shut up about it, so i decided to give it a try and if i end up hating it, then i'll just put them back. My question...

    I figured out my own problem! if you buy the gsp 1101 and control 2 f/c the f/c will not respond. you will need to go online to digitech. when online register for software upgrades. download version 2.0 or better. then you will also be using the cd given with the processor and a usb cable. first...

    So I want to preface this by saying FOR THE price and in my opinion. Last night I went to practice with my band; and in Japan, since amps are rediculously expensive and also hard to carry for the average train taking person, I played through a JC-120. I use a VOX Bulldog Distortion as my only...

    Well, I finally bought a new amp, a blackheart head and cab set, and as I mentioned in the other thread I posted, I bought it cos it sounded pretty good with a decent pedal. At the time I was playing it through a boss metalcore pedal, which was alright for the job, but not brilliant, so my...

    Hey everyone. I am enjoying this message board quite a bit.. I'm just getting into all this guitar gear stuff and have bought a couple of things to get me started but I need a smaller amp with nice tone at low low volumes. Right now I have a Crate vtx 65b solid state combo which I like at...

    Hey guys... Somebody messaged me on YouTube asking me if I could get the same metal tone from my Valveking 112 as this guy () who uses a Valveking 212. Short answer, yes. But, before I knew it, I had a 5+ paragraph answer, so for my sake (as a longtime lurker on this website I could finally...

    Ok, after years of using my digitech 2101, I think I'm in need of a new Multi Effects processor. I have looked at a few, yet wanted some opinions of others I have yet to try out. I also was looking for something that would not break the bank at this time either. I have looked at some of these...

    Just curious to what the real difference is in sound, i know the tubes give a cleaner sound ryt? Sorry I'm quite new and know tubes sound better, but i can't put my finger on whether I'm best just using my ME-50 for distortion rather than my Peavey Valveking head. Regards Jonny

    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...
