    What speaker to pair with a Vintage 30 (2x12)

    I randomly stuck a ceramic Weber blue dog with a v30 into a TopHat Ambassador 35. That combo is magic. Never taking them out. They were just two speakers I had in my stash.

    Hypocricy, horn players' on-stage monitor volume

    I used to play tenor in a bar band. The stage was like a postage stamp and there was no way I could get a monitor pointed at me. I bought a little Rolls headphone amp with a mic thru, some regular Sony earbuds I already had and a curly headphone extension cable. Worked great, and the earbuds...

    Who’s making a good AC30 plugin?

    I'm very hopeful that the Kuassa vox emulation that is supposedly in the works is going to be the one. I like their Matchlock fender amp.

    SF Champs

    Dang. I got mine 1991-ish in the Recycler for $100. Vibro champs were $110.

    What The Heck Is This Inside My Rat?

    It's carrying the bubonic sprague. Proco have really great customer service, or they did a few years ago when they sent me a free battery cover. I'd email them about it.

    Jeff Baxter - Rikki Don't Lose that Number

    He is really impressive. I hearby name this tribute band, "Steal Le Dan." I know a guy who sings in various tributes, and it's kind of amazing how he can do accurate sounding impressions of the various singers he covers. He's also an actor, so I think that training definitely comes into play.

    Is there another female rock vocalist even close to Ann Wilson?

    Ann Wilson is amazing. The 80s corporate rock thing lost me, but I would pay big money to see the original Heart line up perform. Multiple dates if possible. My two top favorite women rock singers are Liz Fraser and Anna Mae Bullock.

    Es 330 or Casino alternative

    I've got HB size p90s in a 1990s Epi Riviera. Sounds great, less feedback!

    Best Guitar For Ambient

    I use my Travis Bean Artist for recording parts that need a pristine sound. It's got the roundest, bell tone of any guitar I have. I was playing it direct into my DAW the other day and didn't realize that I hadn't yet put my planned Fender amp model on it yet. It sounded amazing with absolutely...

    Vox ac 10 limited edition??

    AC30's with 2 6L6's? Someone's trying to pull a fast one. The whole, "Our roots begin in the mid 1950’s with Skiffle" thing is pretty interesting. More evidence that anybody can write anything on the internet, at any time, for any reason, and not really mean anything real at all.

    2nd speaker for TopHat Club Royale 2x12 - suggestions?

    I've got a Scumback S75-PVC Alnico in my ('97) Club Royale 112 which sounds perfect when I'm running the combo alone. I have a matching extension cab with a Red Fang in it, which sounds extra middy in isolation, but helps the amp cut through on a muddy stage and ends up sounding balanced in...

    Oh no, they're going after amps now too

    Maybe it keeps the demand and prices of vintage amps down a bit. Some people want the look and ballpark sound, but they'll go for this instead of dealing with old amp maintenance.

    Help with DAW for beginners

    I'd give tracktion a shot too. I used older versions many years ago, and it was straightforward in a similar way to garageband. Maybe start out with some "basics" video on youtube for a couple of different free options, then go with the one that makes the most sense.

    Streaming single release...low volume

    Wow. That's a great tip. Thanks. Their stem mastering might be a good bridge into getting a more professional sounding mix.

    Anyone ever pass/quit a band due to disagreement over "personal beliefs"?

    Hey, it ruins families, why not bands? Butting heads and ruining relationships about things that we individually have only the tiniest amount of influence over seems to be a national pastime. Actually, I know a guy who's a great musician, but is really in to the whole UFO/lizard people thing...
