    Dumble the best tone?

    Tag and I have a friendship that stems back many years, we beat on each other at times, but there's a mutual respect. He's actually a really good player with a lot of musical knowledge.

    Dumble the best tone?

    I know you have mate. Appreciated it. You stay well too !!! I no longer build amps, I have a full time gig designing robots now....literally. I do designs for other Manufacturers as well, so keep my hand in. 2500 amps over 12 or so years was enough for me and the business started to lose...

    Dumble the best tone?

    Played quite a lot.........THe only one I ever liked was a modded '73 Marshall. Rob knows the one. Whenever I play one I always end up sounding like you. So I grab a Plexi to normalize myself again :) j/k !!! Hope you are well, long time mate. Still see you have not lost your forum love. 38k...

    The M75 is a great speaker with the r series of amps and works especially good with the Tucana 3r. Gives the amp a bit more push through a live mix. In fact in that recording I just posted, I was using a 2x12 with one of those speakers along with an old (bloody ancient) Celestion CL80.

    THe original Scholtz Classic is an incredible speaker. The 8 ohms sound better than the 16. No idea why, maybe Jim could comment as to why that would be. I have had many over a number of years and always found the above to be true. Others have found the same. Its not a significant difference...

    Haha...thanks Mike !! I was messing around and I was running at a very low volume and found this tone that reminded me of Bryan May. Just inspired me to play that piece. One thing I would like to let the CA folks know about this amp. The last proto that arrived (this amp) Mike had sneaked a...

    Carol Ann Amps - Thread XVII

    My wife decided to video me messing around with the DrZ/CA proto this weekend. Spent the entire weekend in the shop working on things. Its amazing how frustrating it is how much time you spend looking for parts because its 2 years since you used them. Designs I used to know off the top of my...

    new Diezel VHX amp and profiling detection: possible future profiling blocking?

    Now the fun factor....thats a whole different rationale. I'm on board with that. I've done some pretty out there stuff for similar reasons. I had an issue for a period of time with people buying amps opening in them up taking photos and returning them. On several occasions they would break...

    new Diezel VHX amp and profiling detection: possible future profiling blocking?

    I chose to work with Cliff and perfect the models with him. Gave me back some control. The Axe sold more Tucana 3's than all the Dealers combined and probably still does help them shift on the used market. I don't know, I'm out of it now except for support of amps still in Warranty and a few...

    new Diezel VHX amp and profiling detection: possible future profiling blocking?

    Hahaha. I just read it. Seems like a desperate waste of engineering resources and time. A modelling designer only has to to change the profile algorithm, make a firmware change that users download and its beat the detection software. The Manufacturer of the amp has to do the same. Its a crazy...

    Next Gen Amp Modeling Idea

    I've always used SPICE modelling for certain aspects of design. In particular it can be good for analyzing harmonic generation through fourier analysis of a gain stage.

    Next Gen Amp Modeling Idea

    Interesting addition, Cliff actually modelled the Triptik 2 for me in an AxeFX2 from just a schematic before I had even made a prototype and I used that to tweak the actual design. These facilities are not available from the UI because its a consumer product, but it certainly proved to be an...

    Carol Ann Amps - Thread XVII

    Guys, I finally have these speakers all done. Please send me shipping addresses to alan.phillips@carolannamps.com and I'll try to get them out in the next week. Sorry for the massive delay. Bit by bit, I'm trying to get this thing back together, not to build new amps but to at least to be able...

    Carol Ann Amps - Thread XVII

    Just a status update. I had to convert my shop in order to test and qualify and number of ECU boards I designed that got delivered for work because with the facility being in MA only a few people are allowed in there at a time. That was an interesting transformation. From tube amps to soldering...
