    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...

    This is a quote from another thread... "I don't have mine (POD) any more but if you PM me i will tell you a million tricks on creating your own patches.. " So I figured any POD users could post custom patches or tricks here that work for you. I don't know how many POD users there are, but...

    This is probably a long shot, but I figured I'd ask anyway! I'm based in the UK, and looking to buy a stereo rackmounted tube power amp. I've owned or tried several, and what suits my tone best seems to be EL84-based amps, like a Peavey Classic 50/50 or Engl 830. However, I know that either of...

    Compared to the Vetta combo's/tops and the Pod XT pro 19" if it's the exact same "XT" technology. No "lite" components etc. The XT pro 19" is almost twice the price of it's XT Live brother, and then you still need a footcontroller (that costs as much as an XT Live) to go "live" with the XT pro...

    Okay, I'm wondering, what are the advantages of a single head with integrated preamp and power amp, versus separate units, and vice versa. From, A) a tone point of view, i.e. voicing characteristics, interference etc. B) a cost point of view.
