    Hi guys! Question of the week: can I plug an Engl Fireball head into a Valveking 112 combo? Is there a way of hooking the speaker up to the Fireball's output? I've never had a separate head / amp + cab configuration so I don't know how they plug into each other. Please clarify! Thanks :)

    I am interested in getting a Marshall tube amp, and as where I live theres not much chance of testing all the Marshall models, so as usual I turn here for advise and input (no punn) I want a nice, mellow, warm clean sound which is why I'm thinking tube amps, and as far as I know Marshall is a...

    What do you guys think of Laney amps? How's their tone compare with say Mesa or Fender or Marshall etc.? I was thinking of upgrading my Marshall AVT20 to a Laney LC15 or VC15, not really sure what the difference is. They've got a Laney LC15 for $400 at my shop, which I think is a STEAL

    after playing for a year, im starting to really hate the sound im getting from the dimarzio ibz pickups, just wondering what pickups sound good on a basswood guitar? btw i play stuff from godsmack, megadeth, black label society, stone sour, metallica, satriani so if i could get a similar tone...

    hey guys! head over to line6.com and check out the new Spider Valve amp. seems like a great idea and like they say on the site "the next natural evolution of the technology". just for a brief overview it's a 100% tube amp head (power amp and pre amp tubes) with a line 6 tone chip that changes...

    Hi Folks, I just bought my first tube amp, and I am overjoyed by it. Originally I was looking at a Peavey Royal 8 (since I live in 500 square-foot apartment), but it sounded dreadfull. Then when the JSX Mini Colossal finally showed-up at my local music shop, I tried it out. Pretty cool, until I...

    I've come to the conclusion that 65watts is sufficient when playing with a drummer alone. How 65watts would work out with another guitarist, a bassist, and possibly a keyboardist is beyond me; It's really just my drummer friend and I practicing and messing around. My drummer friend sticks to...

    I found these. They seem to be copies of the Epiphone valve amps. The design is uncanny but prices are lower. the 30w copy of the Epiphones blues custom is far cheaper. Epiphone comes in at £599 while this Grainger make ive never heard of is £299. Not just those two, all of the epiphone valve...

    Ok, this will be my first amp purchase. i already have a 10 watt squire (lol) and a 50 watt marshall acoustic, which i run my zoom effects pedal through. Sounds like ass. Im wanting to get a Vai type sound (like that hasnt been asked before), extremely high harmonics, nice cleans, and heavy...

    Do you use the same amps for gigs, practicing and recording or do you have different amps for different purposes. How about one tube amp for all those different objects. If you use your 50 or 100 Watt amp at home how do you handle that? Would you say that is overkill if one is mainly playing at...

    That is the question. We'll here it goes. I've been playing for 3 years, four in march :D, with my lovely Epiphone LP that ive fully tricked out. Its a great machine and I love it dearly but a JEM has always been the one guitar I would love to have. Im wanting one now more than ever because im...
