    Doesn't look like people are blowing their Celestion G12-EVH. What am i missing

    I thought so but celestion specs are 20w and they sound very different (better) when directly compared to my 25w greenbacks. Is there a way to check for actual power handling so i can actually know how much i can push them?

    Doesn't look like people are blowing their Celestion G12-EVH. What am i missing

    As far as i'm concenred the awsome sounding G12-EVH speakers are nothing but rebrandaded 20w greenbacks. I love the sound but i'm affraid to blow up my 212 cab loaded with them. Still, when i look at the specs of the official EVH 100W set up, the amp is able to put out at least 100w (probably...

    Any wraparound or stop bar bridge with Floyd Rose string spacing and radius?

    I searched Gotoh's catalog but couldn't find anything that criteria or could be adjusted for a flatter radius and wider string spacing.

    Friedman BE-100 no sound after rebias. Any clue?

    I’m not confortable working inside the amp so i’ll take it to a tech. Wow... if the choke is to blame then this is going to be my 2nd choke burnt on different amps in 3 months after over a decade of constant tube amp playing with zero issues. Do you guys think of something that may cause...

    Friedman BE-100 no sound after rebias. Any clue?

    What you say make a lot of sense. How can i check that out? Thanks

    Friedman BE-100 no sound after rebias. Any clue?

    I didn’t try that but Bias pot was far from zero, the rebias was done and i was getting a proper bias reading (~32mA). Then i turned the amp off to switch the bias probe to the other pair of tubes. When i turned it back on it was zero. Any idea? Thanks

    Friedman BE-100 no sound after rebias. Any clue?

    It happened after regular maintainance i usually do every 6 months on all my amps. I carefully removed the chassis from the cab, cleaned oxidation off the surface of the chassis and transformers (didn’t touch the inside) and reset the bias. I use a bias probe tool i bought on ebay wich conects...

    Can you get Flanger with Delay on the H9?

    As far as i'm concerned there's no algorithm with Delay and Flanger neither Pitch with Delay algorithm. Considering i can have octave or pitch shift with Delay form the H910 algorithm, i'm wondering if you tweaker guys have any advice on getting Flanger with Delay from any algorithm? [edited...

    Celestion Marshall G12 Heritage - Specs and sound?

    I'd like to know what their specs, in wich cab or combo they were fitted and how they compare to a 25w greenback? I could only find 1 demo and thought they lack midrange complexity... but it's always hard to judge from a single youtube demo. Thank you

    Recomend me: Chorus pedal w/ parallel dry out, small footprint

    I need a repleacement for an old noisy but great sounding ibanez chorus. This is going to act as a signal splitter, so i need a parallel (in phase) dry out like the ibanez’. Chorused signal is going to a comp and clean amp, dry signal is goig to a slightly overdrriven second amp. Pedal doesn’t...

    Friedman BE-100: How are you setting levels when using the fx-loop?

    I remember the manual saying something like "when using the fx loop the Return Level becomes your master volume and the channels master on the front panel becomes the send level". So i set it the opposite as you recomend: ch volmes (send level) up high, fx return volume to desired room level...

    Friedman BE-100: How are you setting levels when using the fx-loop?

    I have an Eventide h9 on my BE-100's fx-loop. Works great with my other Friedman amp (Smallbox 50) but not stellar with the BE. When i engage the effects loop my clean channel sounds boomy, looses a good deal of the harmonics and the clean level never matches the distortion ch's volume. When i...

    12AU7 vs. 12AX7 tubes

    I have a great collection of vintage tubes and used to experiment a lot. Here's my 0.2 cents worth of opinion: - Experiment replacing V1 only (that's where you're going to get the most impact in gain). Save cash and don't bother replacing V2 becouse it's usually the tone stack tube and won't...

    RV 500 users: Does it do volume boost per patch?

    Great info. So this direct boost is not global, it can be saved per preset, independent of reverb and delay status, right?

    RV 500 users: Does it do volume boost per patch?

    Are you using yours for overal volume boost on lead patches? Any tonal change or does it boost low end when boosting volume? Low end boost is something i'm trying to avoid on my lead tone. Thanks!

    Any experience of Prefered Series valves/ tubes?

    I have experience with their 12AX7 preamp tubes, not with the power tubes. The 12AX7s internals look a lot like Russian tung-sol and Svetlana tubes. I believe they're made in china but i may be wrong. Soundwise i'd say they're much more open/airy than the sino/shuguang 12ax7, specially...

    Strymon TimeLine - Can it do overall volume boost?

    I need a midi switchable delay that can do volume boost per preset. I know Eventide H9 does that but wonder if the TimeLine does the same thing and if it's programable per preset instead of a master boost..?

    Need help fixing weird Fx-loop phase issue - Eventide H9 content

    I checked levels and everything is set at unit gain. I tried the Rack Space forum thinking rack guys are more familiar with gear matching and fx-loop phase issues. The pedal sounds perfect with every other amp i have and all sounds great if i plug it straight into this amp input. Also, there...

    Need help fixing weird Fx-loop phase issue - Eventide H9 content

    My amp have a serial fx-loop and works fine with every other fx unit i ver tryed but is not working with the H9. With the H9 either engaged or bypassed the midrange sounds weird and out of phase, single notes sound horrible and low end drops a little. Overall volume drops a bit but not as much...

    Recomend me a guitar practice tool to learn new songs: Boss JS10, Computer software, etc..?

    What do you guys use and recomend? My main application for such gear is to learn and practice new songs to play with my actual band. I won't play with headphones and i like the idea of a good sounding unit. Also, I always plug into my own amps so i don't need built in effects nor amp simulators.

    2018 is near, do we still need 100-watters?

    It's a feel thing... and you don't need to push a 100 watter to it's *volume* limit to enjoy their far superior depth, extra detail and 3D tone. I believe the tech trend is actually towards making the 100 watter amps more enjoyable at all eviroments by way of improved Master volume technology...

    Modern amps bias - What am i missing?

    Makes perfect sense and got me thinking that most of the goodness of modern amp designs happen in the preamp stage. So that may explain why hot biasing doesn't make those amps sound any better. But, what do i know...?:dunno

    Modern amps bias - What am i missing?

    This is how i've been adjusting my amp's bias forever: Tube Power Dissipation : Measured Plate Voltage x 65% = Bias So the usual el34 amp falls in the range of ~36-38mV. In the course of the last 2 years i fell in love with Friedman amps and acquired overtime virtually all their models...
