    The one pedal you would never part with and why

    My Greer Lightspeed, just sounds great for low gain with both my Marshall and Fender amps and does not color tone.

    How desirable is a JCM800 2x12 4104 amp? is it the combo version of a specific head?

    I had an early ‘80’s vertical input 4104 with G12-65’s. it is the combo version of the 2204. Prices range from $1000 - $1500 in good to mint condition. My amp sold at the high end of that range. A really great sounding amp. A great rock band amp. Great tones at band volumes (hard to get a bad...

    What was the WORST CONCERT you attended??

    Ted Nugent. He came on stage at least an hour late. Not impressed and not worth the wait. Plus, his opening band’s music, was not what people attending a rock concert wanted to hear.

    I like to bitch about how much my Super Reverb weighs

    I own a ‘68 Super Reverb. Worth its weight in tone. Probably my favorite vintage Fender amp ever. The best cleans in my opinion are not from a Super but from a Twin Reverb. The weight is similar though, between a Super and a Twin. I also owna ‘70 Deluxe Reverb and a ‘73 Vibrolux Reverb. The...

    I dont like orange amps

    Hi Al, You actually influenced me into purchasing a Boss 7-Band EQ when we met at a Gearfest a few years ago. I used the EQ with my Marshall 1974x and the EQ (set to a “V”) really opened up that amp, and added missing low-end and made that Marshall sound good, even at lower volumes. I really...

    I dont like orange amps

    I’ve owned quite a few Orange amps, and all but one, I could not get rid of fast enough. Most recently a brand new Rocker 15. Very bright and raspy. I wanted to love it, but I could not get a sound out of it that I liked. My favorite was the old version Rocker 30 combo. It’s only fault was the...

    Drives For A Twin Reverb

    I primarily use Tubescreamer type pedals into my Fender amps for drive. I often run my TS pedal’s into my Wampler Black ‘65. The Black ‘65 adds bass and fullness to the TS. To my ears, this sounds good at any volume. Right now I use a Ibanez TS808HW, an elMo, and a Full-Drive 2 with my Fender...
