    Best bang for buck parlour? $300 range

    Hi all, Doing some shopping for my better half who is trying to learn the guitar. We had a full scale dreadnaught for her -- a cheapy -- and she didn't vibe with it at all. Wasn't very nice to play, didn't sound great, and the size was too unwieldy for her. So, we're hunting for a budget...

    Question for Hayseed owners with EF86 option...

    Hi folks, For those of you with the above mentioned amp: have you ever tried switching Channel 1 from EF86 to one of the other 12AX7 options? According to the manual there's 2 12AX7 options in addition to the EF86, a bright and a normal. On my amp both of those settings are totally unusable...

    Thoughts on Bare Knuckle Pickups Irish Tours

I am currently a Kinman Woodstock user but I am thinking I would like to go the traditional single coil...

    High gain pedal for a Vox-esque amp

    Hey all, I'm looking for a pedal to substitute for my Box of Rock. With my old amp the BOR sounded abolsutely killer. With my Hayseed on the other hand, it sounded like utter shite. Now I'm missing that mid/high-gain crunch sound that the BOR was so good for. What are some tried and true...

    Help me pick out a new strat bridge pickup!

    Hi folks, I'm shopping for a new bridge pickup for my strat. I have Kinman Woodstocks in the middle and neck at the moment and totally love them. I'm looking for a bridge pickup that is going to be as hot (or hotter) than the Kinmans and has a really big meaty kind of sound. I like a good...

    My new Hayseed! - CLIPS

    My new Hayseed!

    Hi folks! I've had my Hayseed for about a month now. A few users have asked for some pics, so I thought I'd make quick showoff thread. The amp is loaded with a Celestion Blue, and a Weber Silver Bell, and a must say, it's a killer, killer combo. The Blue has got that awesome smooth chime and...

    Nerdy Instrumental Rock

    Hi folks... not sure what sort of response this stuff will garner, given the jazz/blues/classic rock-centric nature of the board.... Nevertheless, here's 3 of 6 tunes of my new band's demo. We're classically trained musicians (that's how we met: in music school) but are not limited to classical...

    Speaker Question (2 Blue Dogs vs Blue Dog + Silver Bell)

    Hi all, Just waiting on my Hayseed 2x12 and considering changing speaker configurations. I'm wondering what the differences are, tonally, between having two 12" Weber Blues (what my order currently is) vs a 12" Blue and a 12" Silver Bell (a popular combo apparently). What does one speaker...

    Help me find the sound in my head! DC30, Hayseed! LONG!

    Hi guys, First and foremost, I live in a place where high quality amps are not readily available. Not only not readily, but not at all. I think the nicest amp available in town right now is the new ac30 reissue, one of which my bandmate owns. I have a terrible case of amp envy at the moment...

    Snake Oils and intonation (or lack thereof)

    I ordered a couple packs of Snake Oil Rocks (.13s) to replace the D'Addario XLs (.13s) on my Strat. After getting the Snake Oils on there, my intonation went completely out the door-- and yes, I know this isn't uncommon when changing string brands. The weird part is that 4/6 strings would NOT...

    Ceriatone DC-30 and pedals... good or bad?

    Hi all, Recently I am investigating the possibility of upgrading my amp. For the past 7 years or so I've been playing through a Peavey Delta Blues 210, which as far as I'm concerned is pretty darn nice sounding. However, recently I'm finding its lacking some of the subtles in tone that the...

    Strat Setup Question

    Hi folks, I had some questions regarding my strat and setting it up properly. I have no trouble setting action and intonation and whatnot, but in my years of playing I've never experimented with the truss rod or shimming or anything of the like. Just a quick rundown on the axe: it's a MIM...

    Memory Lane Demo Request! (RE: Noise)

    Hi folks. I was wondering if anyone with a Memory Lane would mind making a demo of it for me? I have a Memory Lane that I bought used and I'm very worried that something is wrong with it. I know analog delays are quite noisy and honestly I'm not too picky about a bit of white noise and warble in...
