    I bought a Legacy half stack recently. I'm starting to be honest with myself. I'm kinda discouraged. My purpose in writing this is to get some ideas. First of all the clean channel is deadly clean. Best I've played on. However the Lead channel, well, I was hoping for Steve Vai tone. That's not...

    which one do you go for??!! I got a TSL 100, and normally when i want my distortion, i just use my distortion on the channel of the amp, and when it comes time to lead time (Solo), I'll use the xotic RC to just give me that extra boost. But I was wondering, maybe I could just get a nice fuller...

    Sorry if this has been asked before but i read through the amp guide and didnt find anything. Im torn between two amps. Fender blues deluxe reissue 40watts and Fender blues jr. 15 watts. Would the 15 watts be loud enough to jam with a band? I'm not looking for enough volume for a gig but...

    Hi Folks, I bought a Peavey Valve King 112 a few months ago and I am having a great time with it. Anyways, I'm a tube-amp noob (I'm still trying to get my head wrapped around the basics), and I was trying to attenuate my Valve King with my MXR KFK 10-band EQ. I hooked up the EQ into my...

    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...

    A followup from this thread: http://www.jemsite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=67525&highlight=wattage Soo.. Where were we? Right. I just ordered an ADA MP-1 Ultra+, which basically is a MP-1 with the 3 Tube Mod plus additional features that's really droolworthy. Another addition, which I...

    Possibly a dumb question - I don't know as much as I should about signal chains, and struggle constantly. I have no difficulty getting my rhythm parts heard while playing live, but struggle getting enough boost for the solos to be heard clearly. (I don't know if it's important, but the band has...

    I'm interested to know how many of you playing small venues (typical pub etc) mic up your guitars and basses through the PA. I coming from a sound quality perspective rather than volume.

    Okay, I've narrowed it down to these 3. Peavey VTM(supposedly a clone with mods added), Peavey Butcher(apparently so close Marshall tried to sue them), or a Laney Pro Tube(supposedly so close that in an A/B you can't tell which is the real one). The Peaveys use 6L6s and the Laney uses EL34's. On...

    I'm considering a JCM 2000 combo (DSL401) but it looks as though the new JVM is a really good and versatile amp, since it's getting great reviews. More versatile than the JCM 2000 certainly Problem is, it's just too damn loud. So my question is this, do you guys think they'll be launching a 50...

    Picked this up today: 1988 JCM800 2204 in near mint condition. The only thing it needs is a backplate (like most used marshalls), and one of the handle covers replaced. This thing sounds HUGE! I thought the DSL was good but this thing is a monster! Please feel free to show off pics of your...

    Does anyone here play bass in addition to guitar? I have a bass and a bass pod I bought for recording but I am thinking about getting a bass amp. My first thought is to get a power amp and cab and use the bass pod as a pre amp, but maybe I should get a combo and just run the pod into it. I doubt...

    Alright. So I bought a boss metal zone on evilbay for about $70AUD. Judging from the general opinions of others, i was expecting the pedal to be a master in many styles of metal. I plugged it in and was rather disappointed, the distortion was good for heavy rhythm I guess, but on its own for...

    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.

    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

    130031284259 This guy is selling something that he claims would replace a power soak, by placing a volum control, in the Loop. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the tone from tubes amps ed from the power tubes in, not the preamp tubes. Heck, anything in the loop would allow you to...
