    Does using higher gauge strings provide more tuning stability?

    Seems like standard tuning and 10-46 as opposed to 9-42 in a Les Paul context seems more stable. Thoughts.

    Looking buying some e-drums for my studio -which new ones are worth the $?

    I'm a guitarist and have only been looking so I don't know anything about them. Still need to talk to my drummer about but he will not buy them so,... The Roland ones with the shells look cool but are they worth the extra coin? I mainly want to keep volume down in my studio but for smaller gigs...

    Friedman NOHO24 rock! Vid review

    Gave in to the GAS! Is it worth $3,699? Well sure. I did get $700 bonus bucks for Sweetwater. But yeah with taxes that's a lofty tag. Most of the Noho24 tops were not that inspiring to me, however, this one is amazing -see close up for top down in my vid. Bottom line compared to Suhr custom...

    High end desktop monitor suggestions!

    For the modeler of your choice of course! I have the KrK $500 for a pair currently. And although they sound ok, it would be cool to upgrade someday. What are some choices that may not be the top tier in terms of $ but way better than what I am using?

    Vintage 4x12 cab experts chime in please

    I know a guy in a nearby town that has a collection of older Marshall cabs and he was telling me how much better the old ones are versus the plywood 1960 A or B flavor. Can other chime in on the differences of say early 70's or 60's cabs? Thanks!

    Any Tube power amp and real cab users here? Used with your modeler of choice

    I get the whole IR thing and i have owned Xitone and Atomic as well as the ASM's, however, I use real amps mostly and going back to a modeler with a frfr only works for low volume practice for me. Now enters the argument of 'at the end of the day everyone is hear a liked cab thru a pa, and the...

    Power amp and real cabs versus FRFR's?

    I own and have used the Atomic neo and a Xitone. Owned an ASM for a hot minute but it was too dark and heavy. The past couple of years I have been using real heads and cabs and am not really into the IR rabbit hole and always feel like my top end FRFR's are too sterile and pa like. For bedroom...

    Slo 100 Mk II kicks arse!!

    This amp is the ultimate modern Plexi. There's something so good about this amp. I've had all the popular Friedmans this summer and they all fall short in the mid department. Thick and chewy yeas, but articulate with note separation -not so much. Until last week I had only heard Slo YT clips...

    Soldano 30w versus 100w? Tried both?

    Now I know the primary comment is going to be 'From what I heard on YT' But for those who have tried them -how much of a diff is there? Both are super loud it's a given but does the 100w have a more full spectrum tone. That seems obvious but a guy on the FB Soldano forum who has owned both said...
