tube preamp

  1. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    I recently purchased a Mosvalve 500 power amp. With my Boss GT-3 as a preamp and effects, the combo sounded better than I expected. But I was perhaps thinking of getting a rack tube preamp somewhere between the chain. Here's where the confusion start: a) I want to setup my rig to run in stereo...

    Hi folks, I was wondering if anyone uses the 20/20 and in what capacity they use it for?  Does this p.amp have enuff bang for the buck?   Also how much do one of these go for new and used Thanks, -Mike

    Well. i was wondering. Does the double edge sound like an acoustic, and is the tremmolo of the same kind as the Lo-pro ?

    I play very heavy music and will more than likely be using a rocktron voodu valve as a preamp, but I'm undecided as far as which power amp to go with....I was thinking something like rocktron's velocity 120,  but I'm not sure. My budget is about $300 used.  Any recommendations?

    I have an opportunity to pick up a JM-60 in good condition for an exceptionally fair price, and I was wondering if anybody had experiences, recos, or anything else related to the amp they'd like to share. It would be much appreciated. People on Harmony Central seem to dig it, but I don't always...

    Has anyone tried this ??? I am interested in 'heavy' sounds particularly the recto sound. I know a lot of users use it with a simulclass 2 : 90 power amp, but i cant afford a new power amp (i have a marshall el34 100 watt per side power amp) any help would be appreciated

    Well, after a few teasers in guitar mags, Line6 has let the cat out of the bag. Check out the new Line6 combo complete with point-to-point interactive modeling ala H&K. http://www.line6.com/Main/The_Buzz/Hot_News/VettaRollout/Vettaintro.htm Rick (Edited by rickboot at 12:15 pm on July 20, 2001)

    The GZeus Preamp: The Tone for the Up and Coming Guitar Deity. The preamp stage: 6 12ax7(or whatever tubes you prefer), all for the preamp section. Completely adjustable number of gain stages, level between each stage, and individual voltage adjustment. If you want to go completely insane...

    How big do you think the influence in a Guitar God's tone (like Vai, Petrucci, or that kind of players) does a noise gate and or compression has? Do you think they would make a lot more noise otherwise? Or do you think it just shapes their sound while retaining their merit as players? (Edited...

    Here's the story; I have a POD and love it for recording and practice and learning songs along with MP3's. I recently started playing in  church every week (think modern alt-rock, funky jazz and Latin styles) with mostly clean tones and the occasional lead toned-solo. I tried the POD to PA...

    I'm blown away by the versatility and overall tone of this amp!  I got mine directly from the local Fender rep-and it's one of the first 25 made.  All I can say is the Tremoverb is going down the road-this is THE amp for gigging!  It's solid-state, but with a tube preamp.  Amazing!  Tube warmth...

    I got an all mahogany Carvin DC 727, with active electronics & those standard PU's, the thing is that they are great for gargantuan riffing & powerchording but they suck when it comes to more complex chords & are a bit too harsh for soloing. I would like to ask you guys what PU's would you...

    There's a music store here in Portugal (far away from my house) that sells these two used pre-amps for same price (well, the Voodu is a little higher). I cannot go to that store and test drive them for myself, so i'm asking you guys, for those who tried them or own one of these, some opinions...
