    Tech experts: Is Boss lying to us about amp watts?

    Tech experts only please ..... Boss fans boys not wanted here. Boss claim the Wazza amp is 150watts but it only consumes 110watts. Likewise the Katana 100 is supposed to output 100watts but only consumes 72 watts. Is that possible with class D or whatever? My Marshall JTM45 consumes 160watts...

    Live and Drunk in Charge of a Stratocaster (Peter Green minor blues)

    My sister (the redhead in white, still wild at 65) insisted that I do a set with the house band at her wedding last year... but the bar had been open for a least 10 hours and I'd had to be up at 6am to get to the Island. (London to Cowes, Isle of Wight). So at least a pint of champagne and...

    The Unofficial THD Flexi, Univalve and Bivalve Thread.

    Univalve.net , the unofficial home for THD fans and owners seems to have died, which is a great shame since they were an unusually helpful, friendly, and civilized lot on that forum. So i'm starting this thread for those of them that pop in here too. I myself run a Bivalve, which is a class A...

    Live Gig Video Jam. Me with seriously good/name player

    Someone on this forum sentenced me to a lifetime of blues jams. Actually no great hardship since on mondays at the Elm Tree, Surbition (London, England) you get to play with folks who've toured with Clapton, Buddy Whittington etc. This is me struggling to keep up with Paul Rose who is a past...

    Celestion Century Neo 80 Mystery

    Here in the UK suddenly the Century Neo 80 is no longer available and not listed on the Celestion site. It was £70 here (about $100us). The fact that it's now advertised in the States at $285 might just have something to do with it. The unpopular Vintage Century Neo 60 watt is still available...

Now folks are actually trying these new valves in their amps.... my 2cents is they major in high gain clarity ie the gain would have to be way up at wild uncontrollable feedback before the real musical notes...

    To all the TGP experts, thanks for your contributions/expert views on the threads I've read. It must try your tempers that so many ignorant idiots feel obliged to be rude to the TGP experts. My question is about blocking frequencies around 8Hz from the output valves. I got this from several...
