    Hi Folks, I have a year-old Peavey Valve King 112 combo, which has never left my apartment. I rarely take the main volume above "1", so there should be plenty of life left on all of my valves....I think. The thing belches static through the speaker on BOTH the clean and dirt channels. While...

There's no power...

    Hi Folks, Has anyone here tried these two overdrives back-to-back? If so, then what are the differences in tone...if any? Someone told me that the Zakk Wylde overdrive (ZW-44) is based off of the "basic" GT-OD. I don't know what to believe, so I ask for your expert opinions on this.8) Thanks...

    Time to part with my old trusty 5150 sig head. Includes footswitch. Couple scratches on the metal corners, they've done their job and protected the amp. But the tolex is in top notch great shape. And more importantly, it sounds great. $699 shipped pic @:

    Has anyone tried the new Ibanez Valve King TK999HT distortion pedal? The Damage Control seems to be the valve distortion pedal of choice here and I was wondering how the Valve King stacks up. The clips on the Ibanez site sound pretty good to me, but i've never seen a Damage Control, let alone...

    Hi Folks, I've had my Lado Earth for about 6 months now...I love the guitar...hate the pickups. They are Duncan JB's that were factory installed before I bought the guitar, and they lack the power and tonal qualities that I am looking for. Anyways, I posted here a few months ago explaining...

    Hi guys, basically I'm uprgrading from my Peavey Bandit 112 (it's beginning to smell of barbecued chicken when i play solos, and my other guitarist has a Crate 120 Watt, pure noise that could take out the Amazon, so the Bandit was struggling).........basically I ain't got a whole lot to spend...

    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...
