    Strat and Dumble - bad combination ?

    I use a 1964 Strat with a Jet Sig Anniversary Head through a 4 x 10 cab with 2 Weber Alnico and 2 weber regular speakers (Jensen replacements). I can nail the SRV tones and still get a lot of other tones. I use 6v6 tubes but I don't use the lead channel only the front end of the amp. My Strat...

    Anyone ship an amp via UPS withOUT problems?

    I've shipped over a hundred pieces and only had one minor problem. I always insure the piece just in case. It's also important to pack correctly.

    5E3 Tweed Deluxe Style Amp with modifications:

    Clarks are great, throw a mic on it and you're ready to go. I don't have the attenuator but they're out there.

    Tweed Bassman sound and clarity in a smaller, lighter amp?

    I've owned 3 bassman amps and I had the same problem, wanting to downsize and still maintain that great tone of the bassman. I finally ended up with a Clark Deluxe. I retubed it and put in a Celestion Greenback. It's not the same as the bassman because of the physics of the amp but the tone is...

    Tweed deluxe but bigger?

    I played a gig with "Rhino" aka Kenny Earl playing drums (drummer for Manowar and Holly Hell) in my blues band "BC Blues" in Monterey, Ca. It was a small venue and I used a Louis Electric Deluxe Buster. I love my Clark Deluxe but the LE was incredible and had much more headroom which I loved...

    Two Rock Studio Pro 22 vs Real 65' DR w/Zendrive?

    I have a few TR's and I can nail the RF sound with my Kimock loaded with RCA Blackplate 6l6 tubes and Brimars. For my Jet Sig I use Phillip's 7581a and Brimar 12ax7 tubes. I also have a Drip Edge DR that Ben Fargen modified for me and it is a killer amp that I use for more of the classic rock...

    Swart: Anyone using one at Church?

    I have a swart AST and I've used it at Church, I like it but in Church I prefer amplifiers that that are foundations for pedals, this brings a lot of versatility. For blues and jazz I will go with the Swart. I guess it all depends on what type of music is played at your church. I go to Shoreline...

    two rock lowers prices on some amps

    Or anything else they choose, I do like the term "slotting fees" it's a much more sophisticated way of saying "Paying for the space". Good term:drink

    two rock lowers prices on some amps

    I like the way you explain this, however being on the Supplier end of the business there is a lot of greasing going on, maybe a better way to put it is "Shelf-Space Renting". The point is there is a relationship with the "Mechanism (Vons/Safeway)" and the suppliers "Dole, T&A, DiArrigo, Green...

    two rock lowers prices on some amps

    When a product like Mesa shows up in Guitar Center you can bet that money went accross the table somewhere along the line. I haven't looked at Randall's books and maybe he has a silver spoon in his mouth, but something happened from the early days. GC now carries 200 + Mesa items. It's called...

    two rock lowers prices on some amps

    I was just thinking about all of this and I can say that being in business doesn't have any right or wrong when it comes to pricing something. It's up to the owners to do with it what they want. If they want to lower the price of the J2 then have at it. Bill and Joe made a nice market and helped...

    Marshall JCM 800 4140

    I'm selling an older very used JCM 800 2 x 12 combo for a friend. I plugged it in to check everything out. I was blown away at how good it sounds. I have no idea of the value but checked e-bay and they get a lot of action. Need a little help here. What's the value? What do you think of...

    Live amp sound vs. recorded amp sound ???

    I've really noticed a difference betweens amps I use. I have a great stable of amps, Cat5, Two Rocks, Clark, Bluesverb, AST.....etc. There are two things that stand out. The Two Rocks sound good no matter what I did with them. The sonic character of the Two Rock. The other amp that was...

    Why does it seem that 75% of the amps for

    Good thread. I have a ton of amps. Old Fenders, new boutique amps and some rebuilds. I play out all of the time and use different amps. I DON'T have a main amp. I play and write blues for my own band and use a Two Rock Jet2, Category 5 Tempest, Category 5 Andrew and a Red Plate Blues Machine (I...

    THD Yellow jackets!???

    I threw some in my Komet 60 with the intent of toning it down a bit and it worked wonderfully. It still was crazy loud (because Komet 60's are) but it was more manageable. Give them a try, I think you'll be surprised.

    Richest, fattest sounding amp?

    I think my Two Rock J2 and Kimock are about the fattest tone monsters I have played. The Komet 60 and Category 5 Tempest and Andrew are all fat. I also have a Jackson Ampworks Atlantic that is the 19 watt version and it is really fat. Got a Redplate Blues Machine coming this week and I'll post...

    The Great TWEED DEBATE

    I've found if you get a tweed boutique, Clark, Victoria etc. and find some really nice old tubes, bingo, makes all the difference in the world. I've had the real things and still do. They just don't hold up under real gigging situations, plus you don't want them to get stolen.

    Why so many Two Rocks up for sale?

    It's because two rock owners sell and buy newer better models that Bill Kinard comes up with, I've been doing it for years. I have kept my Sterling and Kimock for quite a while but I've gone through about 5 others and currently have a J2. I'll probably sell it in a while and buy something else...
