    Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge, Love is Strong tones...how'd they get them?

    Hmm.....thanks. I've heard things about this Tweed Twin, but have yet to experience one. Kinda been tempted to build one, but I've heard some say high is the way to go, while others say low power is the key. Clips I've heard indicate a Tweed Twin may be what I'm hearing on the album. I'll...

    Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge, Love is Strong tones...how'd they get them?

    Did some listening and I'm leaning toward Electroplex as the answer. The tones don't scream cranked Harvard...they seem cleaner, clearer, bigger, and more put together than what I heard from the Harvard clips.

    Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge, Love is Strong tones...how'd they get them?

    Well shoot, both of those suggestions make sense. I have further Google-ing to do now. Thanks!

    Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge, Love is Strong tones...how'd they get them?

    I'm well Fred, thanks. Very nice to see you still around here. I'll PM you back here in a sec. To the rest of ya, I know someone out there, somewhere, knows what guitars/amps Keef and the boys used on this song. :)

    Rolling Stones Voodoo Lounge, Love is Strong tones...how'd they get them?

    Just heard this Rolling Stones song for the first time today, and wow...some really great guitar tones on it. Anyone have any idea what gear they used on this album, specifically this song? I Google'd, but to no avail....thanks in advance!

    Marshall JCM800 4x12 cabinet with faded black grillecloth

    Interesting....must be a mid-80's thing then. I like it, personally. Best looking Marshall cabs ever, IMHO. That said, I'll be selling my slant 4x12 soon. Hopefully I can track down a straight to replace it. Trouble is, it's hard to find ones in GOOD condition. Mine is unusually nice...

    Marshall JCM800 4x12 cabinet with faded black grillecloth

    Thanks for the info. I'll try to dig up date code info on my cab and see if that'll help. Regardless, I can't say I've seen for sale a straight, 4x12 version of my slant. I'm sure they're out there; I'll just have to keep looking.

    Marshall JCM800 4x12 cabinet with faded black grillecloth

    Hi all, I have a JCM800 slant 4x12 that has brown grillecloth. My understanding is this was a run of grillecloth that was made incorrectly and was apt to fading to brown, and Marshall realized this and corrected it. Frankly I love the look, but what I'd LIKE to do is turn this slant cabinet...

    The DSL sounded much better than the Origin in this video.

    NAD - TopHat Emplexador Junior Classic Arrived; First V-Front 1x12

    I know....fawn amps are my favorite, followed closely by the Brown era Fender tolex. The fawn tolex Top Hats in the above picture are perfect. My kind of aesthetic.

    NAD - TopHat Emplexador Junior Classic Arrived; First V-Front 1x12

    Thanks Fred....beautiful pic there. Hope you're doing well.

    Thinking of going virtually pedal-less for a simple high quality rig. Who has done it?

    Did it for a long time with a Tele into a Top Hat Club Royale. Now doing it with an Epi Casino into a DSL 50 and whatever 4x12 sounds best on a given day. High quality pickups/tubes/speakers make a difference, as does A LOT of tinkering with the amp circuit (Sozo caps, circuit tweaks, OT...

    NAD - TopHat Emplexador Junior Classic Arrived; First V-Front 1x12

    Ooohkay, that makes sense. So you have a "full" Emplexador, just two halves, one in each 1x12 combo. Very interesting. Thanks for explaining that. I too would love to hear clips, as I've been a fan of the Emplexador for some time and am curious as to what Brian has changed in the latest...

    NAD - TopHat Emplexador Junior Classic Arrived; First V-Front 1x12

    Super cool. Maybe I missed it, but what makes it a "Junior Classic" vs. just an Emplexador 1x12 combo?

    Germino Club 40: Celestion G12M Heritage or Greenback RI

    Either would be fine, I'm sure. Both are great speakers, but the Heritage M is indeed quieter and has a very organic vibe (whatever that means). I've owned both, and currently am very happy with my 4x12 with Heritage Ms.
